Thank You For Playing the STAR WARS Battlefront II Beta - Electronic Arts

Thank You For Playing the STAR WARS Battlefront II Beta - Electronic Arts”

With the beta now over, EA and DICE have addressed those complaints (and given a few examples of how the game will change based on player feedback) in a thank you post on the game's website. In light of the feedback from players who participated in the preview event, DICE released a blog post that clarified on how some of the game's mechanics, especially its crate system, will work in the official release. The game studio also gave an assurance that the player rewards can only be obtained through in-game currency, and not actual money. Your character can look as cool and advance as fast as you want if you're willing to fork over the extra money. EA said that players will still have to actually play the game in order to upgrade Star Cards and unlock Weapons via in-game experience, and that "the most powerful items" will be reserved for in-game achievements. Believe us when we say that your participation is making the game better, and we're humbled that so many of you took time to not only try the Star Wars Battlefront II Beta, but to share your thoughts with us too.

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

That last point is interesting: the things you receive randomly in crates (Star Cards) will have a barrier to entry when it comes to upgrades. But, you have to earn the right to upgrade the cards and unlock most weapons by playing the game and ranking up.

Still, the specter of microtransactions remains as this statement refers to loot crates being available for purchase with credits or "Crystals, our premium currency". The developers also announced that they're implementing a feature at launch that "rewards all players in a spawn wave", which it hopes will let players stick together and work as a team. Again, that didn't seem apparent in the Beta so only when the full game releases will we have a real understanding of just what the difference a few loot crates can make.

The Star Wars Battlefront II beta came to a close earlier this week. Like everything else, we will be continually making necessary changes to ensure the game is fun for everyone.
