If you're one of those PC gamers who weren't fortunate enough to have a friend on your Origin list that you could use as a springboard for getting into a Star Wars: Battlefront game last night, and searching alone didn't help, DICE is coming to your aid.
In a post on Twitter, DICE's official Star Wars account has confirmed that the studio are adding more PC servers to their clusters around the world following the interest in the open beta. "We’re bringing more PC servers online and appreciate your patience," DICE posted.
It'll be nice when this sort of thing stops happening, and you'd think after DICE ran betas for Battlefield Hardline, Battlefield 4, Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3, they would have gotten used to an excess of demand. That said, I can't fault them too much — the performance for me last night was pretty flawless (on PC, I stress). And while I had to wait about five minutes initially, once I got into a game I had no problems playing and hopping in and out of matches by myself for the entirety of the night.
For those fortunate enough to have spent most of the day playing: what do you think of the beta so far?
