Star Wars: Battlefront II microtransactions go offline until EA can 'make changes'

Star Wars: Battlefront II microtransactions go offline until EA can 'make changes'

You could be cynical and assume that EA is waiting for people to pick up the game now that its in their good graces again, and later microtransactions in their original form.

The first collectible crate in the level is at the back of the plaza tucked away within the right hand corner facing towards Gleb's capital building.

With those points in mind, it's hard to truly consider this a victory.

Star Wars Battlefront II is now available worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC. The game features all three eras of Star Wars canon, alongside a single-player campaign and a wider selection of content at launch, directly addressing concerns that players had with the previous title.

You can purchase Star Wars Battlefront II from the Microsoft Store or Amazon for $59.99. Vociferous objections have prompted the publisher and developer of "Star Wars Battlefront II" to turn off a controversial system of in-game payments. It was the standard EA Sports cake, with some Battlefront 2 icing and some sprinkled Need for Speed. NSFW Video (Language): EA responded to the post, justifying its position by saying its intent was to "provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes".

This runs counter to the loot box systems in EA's most recent releases and here's where players may want to take stock about microtransactions and the games they inhabit. For many players, the issue isn't the cost of getting ahead in the game, it's the fact that the option is available at all.

Talking to local news outlet VTM, Belgian Gaming Commission Peter Naessens confirmed that he is investigating whether loot boxes should be classed as gambling.

You can hear the cheers on the wind. Many said it was unfair for EA to charge $60 for the game and then give some users an unfair advantage if they pay more to unlock capabilities. It's like coming on a pasture of poppies that will get you high. The game's sound design is equally top-notch, with beefy explosions, authentic blaster noises, and signature Star Wars scores that make every multiplayer match feel like a movie scene.

Nothing is too late. The report doesn't mention what they might have talked about, though a chat about Battlefront II's loot crate system seems more likely than discussing plans for the weekend.

However, maybe you aren't the best at gunning down enemy troopers. This is their response to the ongoing controversy and fan anger. But even Rogue One faced hefty, late-stage retooling, reportedly to make it less of a traditional war film. Keep checking back for more.

As I said before, the Star Wars universe has endless possibilities, and this must be taken as an opportunity to deviate from what we're expecting and surprise us. A few hours after that call, players are finding out that they can no longer make in-game purchases with real money. For the other classes below are the details you must know.

If no one embraced it, this business model would be dust.
