Electronic Arts is set to revisit the Star Wars franchise later this month, with the second entry to its Battlefront shooter series. Aiming to build on the shortcomings of the original, Star Wars Battlefront 2 delivers some promising additions, with a deeper multiplayer sandbox spanning all three eras of the universe. The game also debuts an all-new single-player narrative, which ties directly into the established movie series.

Xbox One owners now have the chance to jump into Star Wars Battlefront 2 ahead of launch, via Electronic Arts' subscription-based game service, EA Access. As a part of the $4.99 monthly fee, players can now play the game's 10-hour trial, prior to the official launch on November 17.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 captured from an Xbox One X, running on a 4K display.

As a part of the trial, players will have the chance to explore several aspects of the full Battlefront 2 experience, across both the single-player campaign and competitive multiplayer. Players gain full access to the reworked class-based multiplayer sandbox, including new maps, modes and heroes. A portion of the single-player can also be accessed, however, most of the experience remains locked behind the $59.99 price tag.

Battlefront 2's EA Access trial is also loaded with enhancements to take advantage of Microsoft's newly-released Xbox One X console. During our brief testing of the trial, it appears the game doesn't hit full/native 4K resolution, however, but it supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) on compatible displays and looks truly stunning. Battlefront 2 also offers no customization over graphical output, unlike some games that give players choice over resolution and frame rate.

To download Battlefront 2 on an Xbox One console, simply search for "Star Wars Battlefront 2" on the integrated Microsoft Store. EA Access subscribers will be given the option download a free trial, which comes in at 51.22 GB with Xbox One X assets.
