DICE Comments on Battlefront II Loot Crates After Beta Feedback

Now, publisher EA has come out with a statement addressing fans' concerns and made some clarifications on how loot boxes work. To balance everything what players can earn, EA says that the most powerful items can only be earned through in-game achievements. While the overall experience was good, the test highlighted some definite concerns from players, particularly in the case of the game's handling of loot crates. In the full game, you will be able to purchase crystals with real money and use them to buy more crates.

Crates will include a mix of of Star Cards, Outfits, Emotes or Victory Poses. You can only upgrade or unlock them if you have reached a high enough rank, which is determined by playing the game.

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 loot box system outlined in the beta saw players able to earn Star Cards in the game's purchasable "crates", which changed their abilities and were directly tied to progression in its multiplayer component.

The open beta for "Star Wars Battlefront 2" was supposed to end on October 9, but EA extended its availability through October 11.

Ireland played their first one-day worldwide against England in 2006 and qualified for the World Cup the following year, where they beat Pakistan and Bangladesh.

In the day and age where triple-A titles like to abuse the words "Alpha" and "Beta" to show how "early" a title is - despite it being a month out from release - we also have to deal with the act of microtransactions and cut content via DLCs that are no more than a cash grab.

The "Battlefront 2" open beta lets players earn credits by winning matches. Star Cards can be upgraded with crafting parts we get by destroying duplicate Star Cards. Sony's improved PS4 Pro is capable of rendering Star Wars Battlefront II at 1296p with dynamic res scaling bumping it up to 1400p, with Digital Foundry reporting that all versions of the game dip below 60FPS.

EA has outlined a plan that they believe will prevent Star Wars Battlefront 2 from becoming pay-to-win. However, DICE has assured players that they won't be doled out entirely randomly in the final release; rather, their acquisition will be based on individual level.

Unfortunately, we don't know if the system we saw in the beta will remain the same or see some tweaks.
