9:54 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media has announced that Star Wars Battlefront has hit beta, meaning the game is now going into the testing phase of development. Battlefront is an open-ended single-player and multiplayer game, which allows players to re-live all of the epic battles from the classic and prequel Star Wars film trilogies.

Here's a more detail description of the game:

Players can participate in all of the memorable Star Wars battles like never
before. Players can select one of the 20 different soldier types from each
of the four factions: Rebel Alliance, Imperial Army, Clone Army and Droid
Army. Soldier types include standard infantry, scouts, heavy weapons and
pilots. Each soldier has specialized abilities and the freedom to use
ground-based turrets found on the battlefront as well as more than 25
diverse ground and air vehicles including the AT-ST, X-wing and speeder
bike, and the massive Republic Gunship that can hold up to five different
soldiers. The team-based action within Star Wars Battlefront is set in more
than a dozen unique locations across 10 diverse planets including Hoth,
Geonosis and Endor.
In related news, the IMG Store has begun taking pre-orders for Star Wars Battlefront. The title, expected in June, is available for $48.99.
