Electronic Arts has extended the beta of the sci-fi video game for an additional two days, giving gaming enthusiasts even longer to sample the much-hyped title.

The beta had initially been scheduled to end on Monday (09.10.17), but will now run until Wednesday, though the technology giant hasn't explained its reasoning behind the move.

The full version of the game is due out in November, but fans have already been given a real insight into what they can expect from the title.

As well as the beta version, Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen said earlier this year that 'Star Wars Battlefront 2' will be "dramatically larger" than the last instalment.

Speaking during the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference, Jorgensen promised that the new title will be much bigger and will have "a lot of new characters" from the newer 'Star Wars' movies, leading to fans speculating they will come from sequels 'The Force Awakens' and 'The Last Jedi', which hits cinemas this December.

Jorgensen said: "The 'Star Wars' universe is just unbelievable to build games in because it's so vast."
