Leak Reveals Character Customization in 'Star Wars Battlefront II'

Star Wars Battlefront 2 update 1.03

It's integration into Star Wars Battlefront II caused a huge uproar among fans, and it's finally starting to effect the company's stock value.

The loot boxes in Star Wars Battlefront II couldn't contain cosmetic items because EA didn't want to mess with Star Wars' established fiction, the publisher says.

"The one thing we're very focused on and they are extremely focused on is not violating the canon of Star Wars", Jorgensen said at the Credit Suisse Annual Technology, Media and Telecom Conference.

"The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date, only after we've made changes to the game".


Not that opening an article with "Electronic Arts' shareholders are running for the hills this month and for good reason" is good reporting, but it solidifies the micro-transaction controversy surrounding Star Wars Battlefront II as one of the biggest gaming stories of the year. "We're not giving up on the notion of MTX", he said. And so listening to the consumer when they start playing the game six months from now or six years from now is very important to us. But Star Wars fans may also want to tailor things - a different colored lightsaber, things like that.

"So there might be things we can do cosmetically and we're working with Lucasfilm on that". That said, he sees the current controversy over microtransactions as "a learning experience" in an effort to get to a place where people can enjoy playing "if you grind in the game, if you pay in the game, or both". The best solution would be to completely remove Star Cards so that players can not pay in real-world currency for game-altering upgrades.

We don't know what goes on in the board rooms where these agreements are signed or what restrictions developer DICE was given, and whether those directives were handed down by EA or Disney. "We do not believe loot boxes are gambling, and suspect player angst over mangled approaches to MTX will naturally self arrest further game development errors", Benchmark analyst Mike Hickey wrote in an email. "Some people have more money than time, and some people have more time than money, and you want to always balance those two". "If we're not making some mistakes along the way, that's when you should worry about it". As so many players have been trying it, games can get filled with AFK players which is not much fun for those trying to play the game seriously. "We feel like we've nailed that in the sports games, and we'll continue to try and find the best model that works in the non-sports games". "And we'll be adding in the next couple weeks, more content than we've ever added in a game before".
