Amazon Leaks the Price of Star Wars Battlefront II Crystals

Star Wars Battlefront II Beta Sports Dynamic Resolution On Consoles; Full Technical Analysis Shared

Loot boxes, it appeared from the beta, were directly tied to progression, alluding to slight pay-to-win scenarios.

I think I speak for the majority of those who played the Star Wars Battlefront II beta when I say that, while the gameplay itself was fantastic and much improved, there were a few little niggles that made us concerned.

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

Fortunately, EA has been listening, and they've gone ahead and issued a response to all of the feedback gathered during the beta period.

Crates will be earned by completing challenges, reaching gameplay milestones, purchasing with in-game credits or Crystals, and premium currency.

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

"Rest assured, we're continuing to listen to you coming out of Beta", the developers wrote on the game's website. DICE claims there is more to becoming powerful than simply buying a crate and getting a good Star Card.

DICE is also considering changing Strike Mode to a best of three solution, nerfing the Spcialist's infiltration and buffing the firepower of the First Order Flametrooper. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.

Love them or loathe them, loot crates are a thing so let's hope they get this right.

We are beyond the Star Wars Battlefront II beta, and it looks like the game is going to have microtransactions. You'll also get instant access to a special The Last Jedi-themed Millennium Falcon, as well as an epic Lightsaber Mastery Star Card for Yoda.

To sum up the above, DICE is shipping a $59.99 game that will be tuned over time - even though it's a sequel to the 2015 outing - but they managed to add in a feature in the game that's a month out from release (although it's still now in "beta"), and they claim that it's not complete?

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

I guess we'll just have to see how players' feedback is interpreted and what we end up with at launch!
