Star Wars Battlefront II Review Roundup: Play It or Skip It?

Seriously? I paid 80$ to have Vader locked? : StarWarsBattlefront - Reddit

The publisher told fans in a blog post that, effective immediately, a handful of iconic characters including Luke and Darth Vader would be far easier to earn. You can participate in the most famous battles of the saga, fly around in the coolest spacecrafts and step into the shoes of your favorite heroes. Star Wars Battlefront II is expected to be a massive holiday blockbuster for EA, so the company should probably face these issues head-on and fix them quickly before it evolves into a full-blown rebellion. The previous record was 24,000. The campaign supposedly ends with the creation of the First Order.

How tantalizing. Could it be that Luke is not in self-exile in Ahch-To after losing his nephew Kylo Ren to the Dark Side, but that he's guarding something that is hidden in the temple at Ahch-To? The real trouble started when one EA developer replied to concerned gamers on reddit stating, "The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes". However, this isn't the case. Playing the objective also rewards players with huge amounts of experience points, so make sure you carry the objective in Strike or shoot the main target in Galactic Assault. That continues as we move towards worldwide launch this week, and we're making adjustments to the game based on player feedback. As sceptical as I am about boycotting, perhaps it would be best to make an example of Star Wars Battlefront II and send a message to all developers; don't get too greedy, or consumers will vote with their feet. You're giving them everything they want. Despite EA's promises to ease concerns about its pay-to-win loot crate system, it's still a fact that players can pay to gain power and other advantages over non-paying players.

The microtransactions are a goddamn shame, because by all accounts, the game contains a short but sweet single-player campaign that gives us a unique perspective on the Star Wars universe in the period between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Reviewers and players with access to the trial period (through EA Access) have discovered that the highly anticipated multiplayer shooter had a major problem with unlockable content. After a big controversy, EA has made the change to reduce hero costs by a whopping 75%.
