Fake Star Wars Battlefront beta websites becoming a problem

Be wary. I sense a disturbance on the Internet.

In a recent post on Reddit, EA Community Manager, Matthew Everett (who goes by the username Sledgehammer70), stated a concern over websites that have been falsley offering sign-ups for the highly-anticipated October beta for Star Wars Battlefront.

So how can you protect yourself from signing up on a false website?

Well for starters, signing up isn't even open yet, so any website offering you the option to do so may as well be waving a red flag the size of the Death Star.

Secondly, Everett mentions that the only place you will be able to sign up, is directly through the game's website.

"Do not be fooled by fake beta sign-up sites. Our beta registration will live on our official site here: starwars.ea.com." 

Star Wars Battlefront is one of the most anticipated games on tap for this year's holiday release window. The series was last seen releasing semi-spinoffs for the PSP back in 2009 with Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron, so fans are more than eager to see how DICE intends to evolve the series.
