10 things we wish we'd known before starting Star Wars Battlefront 2

Report – Star Wars Battlefront II Microtransactions to Still Provide “Accelerated Experience” When They Return

EA said a player could succeed in Star Wars Battlefront 2 without buying crates.

Shares of Electronic Arts ( EA ) fell Friday after the video game publisher halted in-game purchases for its new game "Star Wars Battlefront 2" in response to customer complaints. Take a look at the various guides based on Star Wars: Battlefront II down below.

The single-player campaign (mostly) delivers.

Players have trashed the game this week (portions of the game have been available to players since last week), complaining about how much money they need to spend to unlock sought after features and characters through in-game purchases, and on top of the game's $60 sticker price.

And while the makers try to mix things up a bit with the odd space shootout and stealth mission, I did feel that the campaign ultimately offered little new in the gameplay than what the base multiplayer has.

It's the best-looking Star Wars game ever. It is a random process, there is no specific item will always be there but do check the Daily Loot Crate to gather your rewards. We're talking about the game that literally everyone hates and had the worst attempt at damage control I've ever seen. I want people to know what it's like to live and breath the Empire. Controversial loot boxes and microtransactions mired its image, and through EA's multiple attempts to save face, we've arrived at a launch state many probably wouldn't have predicted. As a psychological ploy, every death shows which cards your opponent used to defeat you, encouraging you to give in to the dark side to get revenge and simply compete. So I think that having been logged the amount of hours that I have as a gamer is the thing that helped me the most in this experience.

The progression system stinks.

Once you purchase Star Wars Battlefront II from the PlayStation Store the game will be added to your Downloads List/Library on your PlayStation system. The powerful Heroes, and even more powerful Star Card abilities are all locked away.

Not everything is doom and gloom though, some fighting sequences seem awesome. As I mentioned before, campaign is a blast to play. Thankfully, changes have been made to the game so it's not as bad as it used to be. It's the sense of speed when the boosters kick in, the light and imagined heat of a narrowly-missed explosion. - -and Iden begins to question her commitment to the cause.

It sounds like gamers aren't the only ones upset with EA over Star Wars Battlefront 2. It's still too early to say. "We will fix this", one developer said during the AMA. The Wall Street Journal has explained that, between the anger from the fanbase and pressure from the Walt Disney Company, which owns Lucasfilm and Star Wars by extension, Electronic Arts has opted to pull the microtransaction option from Battlefront II entirely... And it's so visually stunning, painstakingly recreating so many different places and eras of the Star Wars universe, that for diehard fans it's almost impossible to resist.
