EA Addresses Pay-to-Win Controversy With Star Wars Battlefront 2

EA Addresses Pay-to-Win Controversy With Star Wars Battlefront 2”

Retailer Amazon has revealed the name and price tag that the Star Wars: Battlefront II Microtransactions currency will carry, and for what players are going to use them. This caused many people to express their worries that EA and DICE would let people pay to win. EA has now addressed this issues via a new post.

"As a balance goal, we're working toward having the most powerful items in the game only earnable via in-game achievements".

The progression outlined here is a little better than what was expected in the beta, but it's not flawless. 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.

Star Cards impact gameplay and are players' major concern.

Crates will include a mix of of Star Cards, Outfits, Emotes or Victory Poses.

The game's premium currency is called "crystals", and if you played the beta you likely saw the icon in the upper right between credits and crafting parts. You can only upgrade or unlock them if you have reached a high enough rank, which is determined by playing the game.

Despite DICE's reassurances, there are still those who want to play a version of the game where you don't have to worry about what Star Cards you or your opponent have access to.

The standard edition of Battlefront 2 releases on November 17 and includes all of the core game features, including a cinematic campaign and a full suite of online and offline multiplayer modes.

"We also have heard some players are looking for a way to play where all players will have the same set of Star Cards with flattened values", reads the blog. We've covered how EA makes billions from its online-based service games, especially from games like Federation Internationale de Football Association, and typically any time they discuss non season-pass approaches to service games that means heavy lootbox-style pay-to-win monetization.
