If you're like me, you're probably itching for the chance to get home so you can fire off your blasters once again. In that case, the Star Wars: Battlefront beta will be the perfect tonic.
But while you might be familiar with the Battlefield games, DICE's re-entry into the world of Star Wars brings with it a few changes that mixes up the traditional formula.
Mark and I played through the single-player component of the beta on PS4 yesterday and earlier today I covered what settings you'll be able to flick through on the PC. But if you're interested in knowing what the game is actually like to play, then this should help you out.
I've gone over some of the quirks players will want to know when they're just starting out, including the Gears of War-esque active reload system, the battle cards, how the servers have held up so far and more.
As a note, apologies for the croaky voice: I knocked up the voice-over early this morning and I didn't have any lozenges or tea on hand.
And as I promised in the video, I'll be playing more Battlefront over the next few days. If you're doing the same, let me know and perhaps we can get a Battle-TAY-Front squad together and I can record some of the action for everyone to enjoy.
(Or maybe a BattlefronTAY group. I haven't decided on the pun yet.)
