The Star Wars: Battlefront beta was seen as a huge boon for EA and DICE, with a huge portion of gamers having a blast in the 20v20 Walker Assault skirmish or Drop Zone PVP chaos. But all in all the beta was quite limited, but a recent leak shows how little content the beta actually offered.
As with any beta release of a popular AAA game, dataminers completely scoured every inch and cranny of the beta's core files, finding a treasure trove of content that will be released in the final game. The unearthed code was formatted for legibility by Reddit user me_and_my_johnson, and reveals the full array of heroes, weapons, traits, upgrades, maps and everything else that EA and DICE have planned for Battlefront's release this November.
Be aware that the list contains spoilers and is an entirely massive and comprehensive amount of data consisting of over 17 pages in Google Docs. One of the most amazing surprises is Leia's hero ability--we knew she'd be in the game from previous leaks, but her super is pretty amazing...however we won't spoil the fun.
