As you might expect, fans already know about one of the biggest changes to be made to the game.
Currently, there are no microtransactions available in Star Wars Battlefront 2, which has made significant changes to how things are unlocked.
“We’ve heard the concerns about potentially giving players unfair advantages. And we’ve heard that this is overshadowing an otherwise great game. This was never our intention. Sorry we didn’t get this right,” a recent DICE statement explains.
“We hear you loud and clear, so we’re turning off all in-game purchases. We will now spend more time listening, adjusting, balancing and tuning. This means that the option to purchase crystals in the game is now offline, and all progression will be earned through gameplay.
“The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date, only after we’ve made changes to the game. We’ll share more details as we work through this.”
And now EA and DICE have released the game’s first patch, something that fans have been waiting for.
But if you were expecting Star Wars Battlefront 2 update 1.3 to include their return, you’re not going to find them.
The development team have confirmed that while the changes to microtransactions being removed is temporary, this patch was focused on other things.
“This first patch is specifically focused on issues we found during the later stage of development, as well as addressing some critical gameplay and user interface problems across the game,” a message from DICE explains.
“We have also made major improvements to our games stability and performance across all platforms to make the gameplay experience better for everyone.
“Rest assured, we will focus strongly on improving the game based on the feedback we get from everyone in our community in our upcoming patches.
“So, stay tuned, and if you have the time to give us your feedback on our official forums, we really appreciate it.”
It should be noted that like mentioned above, this new update does not contain any real multiplayer balancing, meaning that more patches will be released quite soon.
