star wars battlefrontIt's exciting times indeed - EA has just announced that they will be hosting some player tests next week for the new Star Wars: Battlefront and anybody can sign up for the chance to play test the game. The sign up page is online but players will need to be in either Burnaby, British Columbia or Redwood City, CA for next Friday.

Two studios will be hosting the playtest event, including EA Redwood Shores and EA Canada, and whilst there are two playtest events happening, EA has not disclosed how many play testers will be invited to the event.

We are pretty sure that the number of play testers allowed will be very limited, so if you are interested in trying it and are in either Burnaby or Redwood City then we would definitely suggest signing up whilst you still can.

Unfortunately, those who play test the game will need to sign a nondisclosure agreement so the public won't be seeing any gameplay just yet. This play test does show that the game is in some kind of playable state though, so hopefully we'll finally see some gameplay of Star Wars: Battlefront very, very soon.

We already know that EA will be showing off a Star Wars Battlefront trailer on April 17 at the Star Wars celebration event, so we think it would be very suitable for them to finally show off some gameplay then.

We’re very excited about Star Wars: Battlefront, are you?
