Star Wars Battlefront Uses Dedicated Servers
No server browser, but the upcoming sci-fi shooter will "absolutely" have dedicated servers for multiplayer.
The news that Star Wars Battlefront would not use a server browser, opting instead for a skill-based matchmaking system, was met by mixed reactions from fans. But now, DICE is back with some news that will probably go over a lot better. The upcoming shooter will use dedicated servers for multiplayer.
Lead designer Jamie Keen told PlayStation Lifestyle at TGS, "We'll still have dedicated servers. Absolutely. It's one of the hallmarks of making sure we deliver unparalleled online servers for the game."

Battlefront is a multiplayer-centric game, so it's nice to see it will use dedicated servers. Other upcoming high-profile games that use dedicated servers include Halo 5: Guardians and Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
A beta for the Battlefront--not locked away as a preorder perk but open to everyone--will begin in early October across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. More details about the beta are available here. Meanwhile, the full Battlefront game launches on November 17 on all systems.
