EA: Star Wars Battlefront 2's Loot Boxes Will be "Balanced"

  • 'Star Wars Battlefront 2' news: Beta test extended for two more days

Additionally, unlocking most weapons and upgrading Star Cards will only be accessible in accordance with a player's rank, which can only be progressed by playing the game. Any duplicate Star Card that you receive, incidentally, will provide crafting parts for upgrading the card of your choice.

The last thing that EA clarified is that players will have to "earn the right" to be able to upgrade their Star Cards and or unlock "most weapons". 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.

The beta for Star Wars Battlefront 2 wrapped up earlier this week, and DICE has had to face some backlash for the game's "crate" system.

"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", the post reads.

Players have not responded well to the loot crate system in the Battlefront 2 beta, which grants users various perks based on what they collect from them. The post then goes on to directly address the concerns that players have over the loot crate system stating that "the complete system was not in the beta". "Like everything else, we will be continually making necessary changes to ensure the game is fun for everyone", EA said.

Extending the beta also gives the developers a good idea of what bugs there might be left that still need to be iron out.

"Rest assured, we're continuing to listen to you coming out of Beta".

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

The publisher noted that they're considering changing the small-team Strike mode to best-of-three matches, toning down the Specialist's close-quarters Infiltration ability and tuning up the First Order Flametrooper's 'firepower.' While the beta had rewarded players that stuck together with bonus points, EA is also thinking about adding further rewards users in a spawn wave.
