EA Addresses Players’ Concerns Over Star Wars Battlefront 2 Loot Boxes

Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta has just ended and those who played the beta were not amused by the implementation of loot boxes as many are saying that the game is a $60 pay-to-win title. However, EA has come forward and addressed the Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot boxes and microtransaction concerns.

In its latest blog, EA addressed players’ concerns over Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot boxes and revealed that the beta didn’t include the complete system and there are a lot of things that players can earn in the final game and the system itself will be tuned over time.

  • There are many things you can earn in the game, including weapons, attachments, credits, Star Cards, Emotes, Outfits and Victory Poses.
  • As a balance goal, we’re working towards having the most powerful items in the game only earnable via in-game achievements.
  • Crates will include a mix of Star Cards, Outfits, Emotes or Victory Poses.
  • Players earn crates by completing challenges and other gameplay milestones, or by purchasing them with in-game credits or Crystals, our premium currency.
  • If you get a duplicate Star Card in a crate, you will get crafting parts which you can then use to help upgrade the Star Card of your choice.
  • And lastly, you have to earn the right to be able to upgrade Star Cards and unlock most Weapons. You can only upgrade or unlock them if you have reached a high enough rank, which is determined by playing the game.

Also, in the anticipation of the Star Wars Battlefront 2’s launch, Disney has restored multiplayer servers for 2005′ Star Wars Battlefront 2.

2005’s Star Wars Battlefront 2 multiplayer support has been restored and the game will also support cross-play between GOG and Steam which will allow in faster matchmaking.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a first-person action shooter in development at DICE and is scheduled to launch this fall for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
