Star Wars: Battlefront II Team Is Paying Close Attention To Fan Feedback

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. Like everything else, we will be continually making necessary changes to ensure the game is fun for everyone. 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.

EA has recently addressed some of these concerns with a recent statement that says they are looking at the system for launch, and "working towards" having the most powerful items earned only through in-game achievements. In addition, it will give developers more time to gather information on how to better improve the game before its release.

We're far from the only ones that have had similar concerns, with the imminent Star Wars: Battlefront II having one of the most worrying set-ups. You can earn crates through "completing challenges and other gameplay milestones, or by purchasing them with in-game credits or Crystals, our premium currency". Pre-ordering the standard edition of Battlefront 2 gets you Star Wars: The Last Jedi outfits for Kylo Ren and Rey, as well as a total of six Star Cards for upgrading Rey, Kylo and your starfighters.

The publisher said that duplicate Star Cards earned through Crates will be turned into crafting parts which allows users to upgrade their weapons and Star Card abilities.

Additionally, unlocking most weapons and upgrading Star Cards will only be accessible in accordance with a player's rank, which can only be progressed by playing the game.

Battlefront 2 open beta went live for all players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this past weekend.

EA also promised a deeper progression system than that found in the public beta.

The space opera inspired video game "Star Wars Battlefront 2", developed by Electronic Arts Dice will be released in November.
