Star Wars Battlefront 2: Most Powerful Items Will Be Earned In-Game

Now, publisher EA has come out with a statement addressing fans' concerns and made some clarifications on how loot boxes work.

Crates will continue to contain Star Cards, along with outfits, emotes, and victory poses.

As a balance goal, we're working towards having the most powerful items in the game only earnable via in-game achievements. EA has attempted to clarify what these crates will do in the full game. You can earn crates through "completing challenges and other gameplay milestones, or by purchasing them with in-game credits or Crystals, our premium currency".

Star Cards, which grant players special weapons and abilities, were also briefly mentioned by EA.

Duplicate Star Cards picked up in crates will also give crafting parts so players can upgrade Star Cards of their choice.

EA says that the complete system with Loot Crates and progression was not in the beta, and that it will be tuned over time. It was supposed to be a weekend-only affair but EA has made a decision to extend the deadline so that more people can take the beta for a spin.

Reports have suggested that each loot crate in Battlefront 2 will be worth 1,100 in-game credits. You'll also get instant access to a special The Last Jedi-themed Millennium Falcon, as well as an epic Lightsaber Mastery Star Card for Yoda. Sony's improved PS4 Pro is capable of rendering Star Wars Battlefront II at 1296p with dynamic res scaling bumping it up to 1400p, with Digital Foundry reporting that all versions of the game dip below 60FPS. Thankfully, DICE listens to player feedback, and this may lead to a final product with less of a grind.

Today DICE has released a 'Thank You For Playing' post on the game's website, stating: "we're humbled that so many of you took time to not only try the Star Wars Battlefront II Beta, but to share your thoughts with us too". We're taking a look at some of the most discussed topics, from Crates and progression to Strike mode, the Specialist's Infiltration ability and more. Oh, and the First Order Flametrooper needs some work - we agree he could use a little more. firepower.

"Star Wars Battlefront 2" is scheduled for release on November 17 for the PS4, the Xbox One, and the PC.

We're far from the only ones that have had similar concerns, with the imminent Star Wars: Battlefront II having one of the most worrying set-ups.
