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

Star Wars: Battlefront II Team Is Paying Close Attention To Fan Feedback

Battlefront II uses loot boxes, and the beta enabled players to get better items and perks through this system.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 finished up its open beta only hours ago, and player response is muddied: people love the actual game but not so much its loot box and progression systems. Crystals, is what EA is calling this microtransactions currency. It was supposed to be a weekend-only affair but EA has chose to extend the deadline so that more people can take the beta for a spin.

"Players earn crates by completing challenges and other gameplay milestones or by purchasing them with in-game credits or Crystals, our premium currency", reads the blog.

It turned negative, as 65 investors sold MET shares while 349 reduced holdings. 81 funds opened positions while 307 raised stakes. The Company's US segment is organized into Group Benefits, Retirement and Income Solutions and Property & Casualty businesses.

"Rest assured, we're continuing to listen to you coming out of Beta", the developers wrote on the game's website.

EA then acknowledges the following issues, which are being looked at: crates and progression, Strike mode, the Specialist's Infiltration ability (too powerful), and the First Order Flametrooper (too weak). The post went on to clarify exactly what will be in Battlefront 2's crates and how players can upgrade the game's Star Cards. Inside crates, you'll find Star Cards, emotes, victory poses, and outfits; any duplicate Star Cards you receive are turned into crafting parts that can be put toward other Star Cards of your choosing.

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

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? There is more player choice in multiplayer through a deeper progression system and an evolving, event-driven live service that keeps the community together by moving away from Season Pass and having all new gameplay content free for all Star Wars Battlefront II players. You can only upgrade or unlock them if you have reached a high enough rank, which is determined by playing the game.

EA and DICE also explained that players may spend real money to acquire loot boxes.
