Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Beta Ends, Here's What DICE Is Changing

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Beta Ends, Here's What DICE Is Changing

So even if you splash some real-world cash, some gameplay is still required to get your Star Cards to their most powerful form.

Crates will include a mix of Star Cards, Outfits, Emotes or Victory Poses.

During the quote-unquote "beta" of Star Wars Battlefront 2 by EA and DICE, a lot of gamers raised concern over the controversial implementation of loot boxes that called for heavy grinding to make progress through its system. Star Cards can be upgraded with crafting parts we get by destroying duplicate Star Cards.

Secondly, the most powerful items can only obtained by playing the game and will not be found in loot boxes. Unlike most "crate" systems in full-priced games, in the beta these crates actually affected your ability to perform.

In a post discussing the reaction to the beta, which saw many players expressing concern that the finished game would be pay-to-win as a result of its loot crates, EA wrote: "Rest assured, we're continuing to listen to you coming out of Beta". The wording of the statement seems to show that this is a direct result of the feedback from the beta, the game is out in month and the in-game economy would have been finalised many months prior to release so for EA to say they are "working towards" something it does sound like they have changed their minds. This is due to the fact that no additional new content will be made available, so players will still have to wait for the November release to be able to play the full version of the game - if they have already grown exhausted of the beta test.


The space opera inspired video game "Star Wars Battlefront 2", developed by Electronic Arts Dice will be released in November.

The Beta was just a small piece of what we're making.

DICE has provided a list to clear up some issues players may have had.

The publisher noted that they're considering changing the small-team Strike mode to best-of-three matches, toning down the Specialist's close-quarters Infiltration ability and tuning up the First Order Flametrooper's 'firepower.' While the beta had rewarded players that stuck together with bonus points, EA is also thinking about adding further rewards users in a spawn wave.
