Star Wars Battlefront 2 Loot Crate Changes Coming Following Backlash

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Loot Crate Changes Coming Following Backlash

During the beta for Star Wars Battlefront 2, progression was nearly entirely locked behind loot crates, which gave players a random chance at getting anything from upgrades to pittance worth of scrap - an in-game crafting item. The game has gone Gold!

If nothing else, EA is listening to the fans for Star Wars: Battlefront II. In epic multiplayer battles, players will be able to pilot a First Order TIE fighter through intense dogfights in space, and play as ground troopers or iconic heroes and villains, such as Yoda and Darth Maul, across all three Star Wars eras. Battlefront 2 is slated for a November 17th release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Stay tuned for more! The beta version of the game saw weapons randomly handed out just like any other kind of loot, prompting concerns about both lack of progression and big advantages for players who spend extra cash.

The crafting mechanic also comes into play when you're upgrading the cards in your collection.

The list has not yet been completed, as EA promises to continue balancing and changing Battlefront 2 according to player feedback.

Epic Star Cards, which allow players to use extra abilities or weapons, will no longer be confined to loot crates. Weapons are also now locked behind specific milestones and class-specific gear and items are unlocked by playing as that particular class. Some Epic Star Cards will still be available through starter packs, by pre-ordering, or through special editions of the game. However, EA does say "a select few" weapons will still be available in boxes.

To slow players purchasing crates and breaking them down into resources for crafting, a level requirement will be imposed on some cards. These will include a mix of Star Cards and Crafting Parts to benefit your class's development. The teams claimed that they are committed to keeping the community together.

The bottom line here is that DICE wants everyone to be on the same playing field regardless whether or not you use real or in-game money to buy crates.
