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

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 in-game currency 'Crystals' priced; Loot Crate contents detailed

'Star Wars Battlefront 2' news: Beta test extended for two more days

As is typical for beta tests, the recent Star Wars Battlefront 2 public beta generated quite a bit of feedback.

Each loot crate has been detailed to contain more than just cosmetic items - the crates will contain Star Cars, Weapons and "other" valuable resources.

To sum up the above, DICE is shipping a $59.99 game that will be tuned over time - even though it's a sequel to the 2015 outing - but they managed to add in a feature in the game that's a month out from release (although it's still now in "beta"), and they claim that it's not complete?

The full system for the loot boxes in Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a series of 6 points. You can only upgrade or unlock them if you have reached a high enough rank, which is determined by playing the game.

Alphabet Inc. (GOOG) Sees New 52-Week High
July 21 investment analysts at Deutsche Bank maintained a stock rating of "Buy" and lowered the price target to $1.00 from $1.00. The expected GOOGL's profit could reach $5.79B giving the stock 29.82 P/E in the case that $8.43 earnings per share is reported.

EA has outlined a plan that they believe will prevent Star Wars Battlefront 2 from becoming pay-to-win.

I'm not going to go over the current loot box controversy, if you don't know what's been going on then read this, so let's jump straight in with the news that EA are listening to the ferocious feedback and have posted a short blog clarifying exactly how loot boxes work in Star Wars: Battlefront II.

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.

That's the closest EA have come to an assurance that paying for microtransactions won't give players a significant edge over their competition, though they also say "you have to earn the right to be able to upgrade Star Cards and unlock most Weapons". The game makes up for what was missing from the first game, most notably with a single-player campaign and improvements to maps. And even though they don't always make comments, it's mainly because "we don't feel we can add anything useful to the discussion". The company also addressed other concerns and issues about the final version of the game and promises that it's already working on it. We're taking a look at some of the most discussed topics, from Crates and progression to Strike mode (which we're considering changing to a best of three), the Specialist's Infiltration ability (which might be a little too overpowered) and more.
