Star Wars Battlefront II Official Launch: EA stops Microtransactions

You can obtain Crafting Parts or Star Cards through Star Wars Battlefront 2 Loot Boxes, and as you can see in the screen just below, we were lucky enough to obtain a Star Card for Boba Fett in this specific Loot Crate. We played a little bit of it, insulted each other, drank club soda (for some reason) and then murdered each other.

The silence after the drama has allowed EA time to decide how they will re-implement the microtransactions, allowed analysts to begin releasing their opinions on the situation, and given room for Lucasfilm to release a statement on the drama. Taking current value along prior value is a smoothing technique similar to that used in calculating an exponential moving average.

Apparently, according to an analyst over at KeyBanc Capital Markets not only has all the controversy over BFII's loot crates been an overreaction, EA should be charging more for their base game on top of that. Battlefront II humanises the enemy, in much the same way as Finn made Stormtroopers actual people in Episode VII.

This may be attributed to the recent controversy the game received regarding its implementation of microtransactions. It only takes around five hours to finish all the missions, and the story will resonate most with players already dedicated to the franchise, but the cinematic presentation is captivating regardless.

It's a fairly PR friendly reply from the studio whose films are tied to the game.

Wingren came to this conclusion after calculating the amount of time players will spend with Battlefront 2 compared to watching The Last Jedi.

However, governments in Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK have separately launched investigations into whether the video game feature does raise the risk of problem gambling in players.

Wingren's comments follow an Internet backlash over EA's in-game purchase model to unlock premium characters in Battlefront II, such as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. It transitions beautifully to vehicle sequences as well, seamlessly putting you into the cockpit of a Tie Fighter or an out-of-place Cloud Car to engage in epic space dogfights.

"Gamers aren't overcharged, they're undercharged".

"You have gaming lobbyists who don't want us to talk about this". This was never our intention.
