The Star Wars Battlefront beta is only days away, but before you sink your teeth into it, take a look at some new gameplay videos that have been released.

Thanks to YouTuber jackfrags, a number of new gameplay videos can now be seen. While you’ll have to go to his channel to see all of the videos, you can watch the “Luke vs Darth Vader – Star Wars Battlefront Hero Guide” video below:

Or, you can watch some Survival mode gameplay here:

In other Battlefront news, it has been revealed that the game will not feature micro-transactions. Speaking with GameSpot, Design Director Niklas Fegraeus mentioned that currency can only be earned by playing the game. 

Well, the currency system is based on your game performance. The credits that you use to buy things in the game are earned. You play the game, complete challenges, and that’s how you get credits.

And, finally, thanks to IGN’s hands-on playthrough of the upcoming beta, four new Battlefront game modes were revealed. While details on what those modes might entail haven’t been released yet, you can at least check out their names:

  • Supremacy
  • Blast
  • Cargo
  • Droid Run

Are you prepared for the Star Wars Battlefront beta to come out later this week?
