DICE addresses Star Wars: Battlefront II loot box concerns

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta end date has been confirmed

There's been quite a backlash recently against loot crates and progression systems that encourage players to spend more cash.

I think I speak for the majority of those who played the Star Wars Battlefront II beta when I say that, while the gameplay itself was fantastic and much improved, there were a few little niggles that made us concerned.

On second thought, we'll allow Blackburn's pro-life ad
Her campaign paid to have the video promoted as an ad on Twitter , but the social media company on Monday moved to bar Blackburn from doing so.

"As a balance goal, we're working towards having the most powerful items in the game only earnable via in-game achievements", it explained.

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. Pre-ordering the standard edition of Battlefront 2 gets you Star Wars: The Last Jedi outfits for Kylo Ren and Rey, as well as a total of six Star Cards for upgrading Rey, Kylo and your starfighters. The post went on to clarify exactly what will be in Battlefront 2's crates and how players can upgrade the game's Star Cards. "Like everything else, we will be continually making necessary changes to ensure the game is fun for everyone".

Kentucky's John Calipari gets in heated exchange with reporter
Kentucky head coach John Calipari got a dose of that reality during the Wildcats' media day on Thursday. Calipari snapped back and said, "We don't even know if what you're saying is true".

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. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news. Star Card upgrades and unlocking weapons can be achieved with a high enough rank which means you need to play to get your hands on these.

Love them or loathe them, loot crates are a thing so let's hope they get this right. Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be released on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on November 17. Crates can also be bought using Credits, a currency earned from playing the game. Thankfully, DICE listens to player feedback, and this may lead to a final product with less of a grind.
