A natural question, then, is this: will Battlefront 2 be optimized for the newer console? The answer has surfaced on Microsoft's own website.

Star Wars Battlefront Death Star DLC just made the game a must-have

We've been getting a lot of news coming in from Gamescom, but if a Metal Gear game centered around zombies doesn't sound like your cup of tea, maybe Star Wars can help. Electronic Arts has detailed a new Battlefront game mode called Battle Station, which will arrive with the game's incoming Death Star DLC.

Good news for Star Wars fans who didn't have the chance to play the Star Wars: Battlefront beta — or those who simply didn't get enough play time — over the weekend, as EA has decided to extend the testing period to Tuesday, October 13th.

Star Wars: Battlefront Beta opens today at 10AM PST

Thursday the 8th of October, 2015, the Star Wars Battlefront BETA began opening its doors to the public. This open invitation will be brought to users on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, including several modes of play and environments. This BETA test will be sent out for two reasons. The first is to test the servers - any game that's based primarily in an online environment such as this needs time to make certain it'll be able to be handled at scale. The second reason this BETA exists is that the game itself must be tested for flaws by a large number of users - tiny flaws like bonus icons disappearing when you throw a thermal detonator - that's what they'll looking for.

Today EA Games, DICE, and Frostbite reveal "Fighter Squadron" gameplay for Star Wars Battlefront. In this reveal, you'll see a whole lot of potential.
