EA rebuffs 'pay to win' loot criticism of 'SW Battlefront 2'

Each loot crate has been detailed to contain more than just cosmetic items - the crates will contain Star Cars, Weapons and "other" valuable resources.

Following the controversy and complaints players have had about Star Wars Battlefront 2's loot boxes, a roundup following the beta has clarified what the development team are aiming to do with the loot system. Star Cards can be upgraded with crafting parts we get by destroying duplicate Star Cards. As well as villains such as bounty hunter Boba Fett, Electronic Arts confirmed that Darth Vader is a playable character in Star Wars Battlefront 2, so those looking to push the power of the Dark Side in the game are bound to have plenty of options available to them. You can only upgrade or unlock them if you have reached a high enough rank, which is determined by playing the game.

The open beta for "Star Wars Battlefront 2" came to a close earlier this week and it has raised concerns that the final version of the game may be "pay to win".

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

The loot box system outlined in the beta saw players able to earn Star Cards in the game's purchasable "crates", which changed their abilities and were directly tied to progression in its multiplayer component.

It remains to be seen how these changes will affect Star Wars Battlefront 2's gameplay, but after really enjoying my time with the beta I'm glad to hear that EA is adjusting its stance on loot boxes.

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

DICE has provided a list to clear up some issues players may have had. And even though they don't always make comments, it's mainly because "we don't feel we can add anything useful to the discussion".

Following the beta, they're also listening to criticisms on balance, with the Specialist's Infiltration ability being considered too powerful and the First Order Flametrooper being underpowered.

So far, developer DICE and publisher Electronic Arts have been putting a lot of focus on the game's single player, which was sorely missed from the reboot of Star Wars Battlefront.
