But let’s say you’re playing the beta through Origin PC and you want to make sure that your PC is up to spec when it comes to keeping the game chugging along. Fortunately, EA and DICE have provided such specs, which you can see below…

On top of this, however, EA also reminded fans on its website that since this is a beta, it could require a pretty good deal of time and space to set up. “The Star Wars: Battlefront II Beta is among the biggest ever distributed by EA, so be mindful that downloading and installing will take a while,” it noted. “Be sure to allow plenty of time for this!”

In case you need a reminder, the beta kicks off on October 4th for those who pre-ordered the game, and then opens up on October 6th for everyone to try out. The beta will run through October 9th. There's plenty of time to jump in and enjoy the battle, even if you didn't pre-order the game!

Check out the trailer above, and prepare to grasp the force when Star Wars: Battlefront II arrives on November 17th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Origin PC!
