A new Star Wars Battlefront 2 closed alpha period is reportedly kicking off
Most fans might not have been aware but Star Wars Battlefront 2 closed alpha testing has begun.
The Battlefront 2 alpha codes have been sent out to testers, who have been confirming details on neoGAF.
According to those selected to participate, the Star Wars Battlefront 2 closed alpha begins today and weighs in at around 7.3GB.
It appears that the testing has no current end date penciled in and is only on the PC platform.
There has also been a bit of confusion over whether the alpha release will come to PS4, although this doesn’t seem to be something that is actually happening.
When a fan asked on Twitter about whether there was going to be an alpha on all systems, global community engagement manager, Mat Everett, replied: “You heard wrong.”

Gamers who played the Battlefront 2 alpha during E3 have reported the use of loot crates in the game, which can be earned through credits you get through the playing game, as well as real money.
The new crates contain certain items, including Star Cards for customising your hero, Crafting Materials for upgrading Star Cards and more Credits to be used in buying more crates.
There also doesn’t appear to be a correlation between pre ordering and receiving an alpha code, which would make sense as no alpha testing was mentioned as part of the deal.
As confirmed by EA, there will be a Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta before its launch later this year and it will be on all platforms.
