Now Playing: How Star Wars Battlefront 2 Has Improved On The Battlefront Formula

However you get in, you'll have access to four total modes: Galactic Assault, Starfighter Assault, Strike, and Arcade. The first three are all online multiplayer modes, while Arcade is a 1-2 player mode that can be played locally in split-screen. You can check out our previous coverage for more details on what's in the Battlefront II beta.

Star Wars Battlefront II releases in full on November 17. We recently got a look at some of Battlefront II's new modes and features, including Galactic Assault and Starfighter Assault; you can check out some of our impressions in the video above. If you don't have beta access just yet, you can get your Star Wars fix with the original Battlefront II from 2005, which now has online multiplayer support again.
