Watch the First Three Missions of the Battlefront 2 Campaign


Already annoyed by the system of loot crates and microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront II from the open beta, players had calculated that the cost of unlocking heroes such as Darth Vader would take around 40 hours of play to reach, and that was only if you didn't touch a single loot crate in that time, which would mean unlocking no Star Cards in the process. Now, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader will cost 15,000 credits; Emperor Palpatine, Chewbacca, and Leia Organa will run 10,000 credits; and Iden will be 5,000 credits.

The aforementioned controversy surrounding Star Wars Battlefront 2 is nothing new, and you can tell that EA is starting to enter damage control mode - at least to some extent.

So to play as any of the characters/vehicles just above, you'll unfortunately need to purchase them with Credits in the Collection tab of the main menu, before you can spend your in-game Battle Points to play as them. EA is constantly changing and adding things to the game however, so you can be sure that we'll update our guides to reflect any changes that are made to Star Wars Battlefront 2.

"There's been a lot of discussion around the amount of in-game credits (and time) it takes to unlock some of our heroes, especially Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader", the post reads.

No team has ever lost the first leg of a World Cup play-off at home and retrieved the situation. I don't know what happens in this situation, I try to shoot and someone blocks my shot.

DICE also confirmed that they will be hosting a Reddit AMA on Wednesday to discuss key topics with players.

In response to this, EA released a statement on Reddit-and it didn't go well, reportedly becoming the most-downvoted comment in the history of Reddit with more than 433,000 downvotes. For example, you're bound to earn more credits if you can be the one to recover the item in a game of Strike, or take out the enemy bombers in a game of Starfighter Assault.

Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can.

The team used data from the Play First Trial to set the pricing to unlock heroes.

QUALCOMM, Inc. (QCOM) Set To Reject Broadcom's Takeover Offer This Week
This could lead to a higher bid from Broadcom in the future, but there's no word on when Broadcom might make another offer. Qualcomm is set to reject the multi-billion takeover bid from fellow chipmaker Broadcom, reports have claimed.

The official PlayStation YouTube channel has released an epic live-action trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II, and I have to say that this is one of the best video game trailers I've seen in recent years.

Of course, this won't be the last that we hear of Battlefront 2's loot boxes.

Imagine that your shiny, shrink-wrapped copy of Star Wars Battlefront 2 just arrived in the mail from Amazon. While I've enjoyed what I've played thus far in EA Access, the looming presence of its loot boxes blemish the overall presentation, and it now serves as a reminder that at their worst microtransactions aren't just unappetizing side dishes in a three-course meal - sometimes they spill out onto your dessert and make that taste a bit awful, too. Well, it looks like EA and DICE might be listening, kind of.
