Join GamesBeat Summit 2021 this April 28-29. Register for a free or VIP pass today.

We are installing Star Wars: Battlefront on our Xbox One right now, and you can watch us squelch the Rebel Alliance’s pitiful band.

It’s is only live right now for Xbox One owners who subscribe to the EA Access member program, which costs $5 per month or $30 per year. And I’ve never felt like it was a better deal. If you’re on PlayStation 4 or PC, you’ll have to wait until November 17 before you get the chance to go to battle with your blaster rifle.

Enough of these words! Let’s get to the galaxy far, far away!


GamesBeat's creed when covering the game industry is "where passion meets business." What does this mean? We want to tell you how the news matters to you -- not just as a decision-maker at a game studio, but also as a fan of games. Whether you read our articles, listen to our podcasts, or watch our videos, GamesBeat will help you learn about the industry and enjoy engaging with it. How will you do that? Membership includes access to:
  • Newsletters, such as DeanBeat
  • The wonderful, educational, and fun speakers at our events
  • Networking opportunities
  • Special members-only interviews, chats, and "open office" events with GamesBeat staff
  • Chatting with community members, GamesBeat staff, and other guests in our Discord
  • And maybe even a fun prize or two
  • Introductions to like-minded parties
