Microtransactions temporarily removed from Star Wars Battlefront 2

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

Video game players have widely criticized Battlefront's economy, claiming it encouraged players to spend money to advance rather than naturally earning in-game items based on skill. But so much of the excitement has been buried under an avalanche of fan outrage surrounding the game's loot crates and unlockables. For now, this is simply a step in the right direction. Rush through waves of enemies on Starkiller Base with the power of your lightsaber in your hands. The heavy class also ace in defending a position or simply fights and make its way out.

From there, the petition discusses the Visceral Star Wars game helmed by Amy Hennig.

EA paused the purchases last night after a player backlash online.

EA and Dice have decided to temporarily pull microtransactions from Star Wars Battlefront 2. The abilities have a cool down time, you have to wait to use it again.

Post maintains his Buy rating and $137 price target, believing that the company's sports titles can offset these losses. They also don't know how many boxes they might need to unlock in order to finish the game.

This development comes a few days after fans discovered that unlocking iconic Star Wars characters like Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader would require dozens of hours of gameplay apiece.

Star Wars Battlefront II should've been a slam dunk.

If you head on over to Change.org, you'll discover a petition is circulating called "Lucasfilm: Revoke EA's Star Wars License". This basically encouraged players to pay, rather than play to win.

Earlier statements EA has surfaced some interesting news. Players said many of the in-app purchases were for content that should come with a $60 game. Regulators in Belgium, meanwhile, are looking at whether the game constitutes a form of gambling. For more information, check out the games official website. EA eventually caved and lowered the cost of the heroes by 75 percent. Publisher and consumer dialogue is an important relationship as any in today's climate.

The future Jedi master isn't the only familiar face in Battlefront 2 though. "We've worked diligently to craft a compelling story of what it's like to view a familiar conflict from a very different perspective by allowing players to experience the Battle of Endor and destruction of the second Death Star as an Imperial". "We will fix this", one developer said during the AMA.

"Star Wars: Battlefront II" was expected to fix the issues with the first "Battlefront" game. Go for it! That's getting trickier these days now that Lucasfilm is maintaining a more unified canon, layering background information across television and publishing about characters and worlds and events seen on the big screen. And Lando continues to serve as a General in the Rebellion long after the destruction of the second Death Star.
