This author may like Star Wars Battlefront about as much as being force choked, but we're more than happy for those of you foolish enough to be enjoying the game to lap up the mediocrity for a little longer. EA Games announced on Twitter earlier this evening that it will be extending the PlayStation 4 blockbuster's server stress test through 13th October, which should give you ample time to come to your darn senses.

It's perhaps worth noting that your mileage may vary during the extra 24 hours. "These tests are to help us find some extreme scenarios, and that means that some players may experience occasional issues such as being kicked from the game or losing connectivity," a spokesperson said. "This is all being done in the name of shoring up our infrastructure before we launch on 17th November."

Credit where credit's due, we've found the beta to be a pretty flawless experience from a technical perspective, which is really rather impressive when you consider that every person in the world has been playing this over the weekend. It's a shame about the rest of it really...
