New Battlefront 2 Game Enrages Star Wars Fans

14 November 2017

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a game that can't seem to make its economy work, and that failure is dominating the conversation about a game that, outside of these loot crate systems, looks and plays pretty great. The team is fully committed to listening to our community, continually adjusting the game, and providing even more great Star Wars content over the upcoming months and years of live service updates.

This representative went on to say that the credit amounts for each hero were based on data from the game's open beta testing period, and that they will "be making constant adjustments to ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding and of course attainable via gameplay".

It's good news that they're already planning to adjust the rates as they go, but there's no guarantee they'll be much more reasonable than the roughly 40 hours of play now required to attain a single hero-all while not making any other in-game purchases to slow down the process. The story covered the outrage sweeping across the 'net regarding the game's increasingly controversial loot boxes and the notion that heroes - that's Darth Vader and the other powerful, named characters - would be locked behind huge in-game currency costs. Naturally, people are up in arms, and you certainly can't blame them. We're making the changes to the credit levels for unlocking heroes and we're going to keep making changes to improve the game experience over time. Wrote another, "If I had a credit for every downvote you've gotten I could finally unlock Darth Vader!".

Star Wars Battlefront II isn't officially out until November 17, and yet it's already earning awards...

Wasilczyk continues: "We're reducing the amount of credits needed to unlock the top heroes by 75%". Players will still be able to pay to purchase credits and unlock heroes more quickly.

Now, this isn't exactly a first for the industry. If you have further grievances you'd like to air, then, it sounds like that's the place to do it. That's progression. However, gamers did the math and realized it would take 4o hours of gameplay to unlock Darth Vader, which is an unreasonable thing to ask of anyone who isn't a teenager with a holiday break on the horizon. "Iden is on a quest to search for her missing husband when she stumbles across a First Order conspiracy that crosses paths with both Star Wars The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi film timelines". More information on that AMA will be coming down the pipeline shortly, but for now, head down to the comments section and let us know if this change is enough to get you to reconsider your stance on Battlefront 2.
