The Star Wars Battlefront 2 Multiplayer beta is in full swing, at least if you’ve pre-ordered the game. If you haven’t, you’ll be able to access the open beta soon enough. Of course, since this is not only a Star Wars game, but a ridiculously popular EA / Dice game, data miners have been all over the game. They’ve been diving pretty deep into the game’s code, and unearthing a ton of interesting things. Reddit user GarrusValkyrin has been compiling the stuff that people have been uncovering in one post, and, yeah, there’s quite a bit to unpack. As you’d expect, from here on out, there’ll be some minor spoilers. If you want to go into the game without knowing anything, click away now. Consider yourself warned.

For example, the data miners have revealed the lists of Hero Abilities for various characters. To be fair, most of them are exactly as you’d expect. Darth Vader has Force Choke, Kylo Ren has Force Freeze, Darth Maul has Saber Throw and Force Choke Push. In the other camp, Lando and Han both have Sharpshot, and Han has several melee attacks, too. Luke has Force Dash, Force Push, and Force Jump. Finally, Rey has Jedi Vision, the Jedi Mindtrick (this should be interesting), and the Dash Strike.

Other stuff that has been uncovered includes stuff like various vehicles. The list includes Yoda’s Starfighter, the X-34 Landspeeder, the Hoth Fighter, the U-Wing and the A-Wing, and more. Also, there’s different maps, character models, alien races, and so on.
