The latest updates for Star Wars: Battlefront 2" will feature more details on the Beta test next month and the sequel will not be available in the playstation vr.

Sequel not coming to the PSVR

Criterion Games announced that "Star Wars: Battlefront 2" will not have any virtual-reality game mode features. Game designer John Stanley and Criterion Games general manager Matt Webster told Metro UK that they had taken enough effort in putting the "Rogue One VR" into the first game and pointed out that piloting a jet and doing it in a VR headset are two completely different experience.

"At some point, we could sit down and spend a good number of hours talking about the VR needs to go to in order to work with that, because in something like this you're doing the job of a fighter pilot," Webster said.

Criterion Games may have abandoned their plans for VR gameplay in "Star Wars: Battlefront 2," but the company's director Alex Mole teased last April that the sequel will have new feature far more exciting than the VR mission. While the details about it are still unknown, Electronic Arts will likely announce more details soon before it launches in November.

Beta test details revealed

It seems that details of the sequel's beta test on October have been leaked online. According to Reddit user Some_Info, the beta test will include Assault on Theed map with 40 players, and the Starfighter Assault mode on Fondor with 24 players. Strike on Takodana is also added to the beta, but Redditor did not mention how many players are available on the map.

There is also a co-op skirmish mode that features an arcade-style scoring system with power-ups, weapon pickups, and modified maps.

The mode will also include split-screen support and online co-op gameplay.

The playable characters in the beta include Darth Maul, Rey, Boba Fett, and Han Solo. Plus, gamers will have the chance to pilot a LAAT vehicle, which flies around similar to the U-Wing.

"Battlefront 2" will feature events, vehicles, and characters from the "Star Wars" films and they are not limited to the original trilogy. The sequel's campaign will have an original story set before the events of "The Force Awakens" and it will introduce a new main character, Iden Versio.

Game director Mark Thompson explained that the franchise has not yet explored the Imperial's side of the conflict, allowing the developers pitch in different plot scenarios for the story.

The game will launch on November 17 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
