Star Wars Battlefront II Patch Drastically Reduces Prices on Heroes

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Heroes Take 40 Hours to Unlock

It's a direct response to some fan outcry over the weekend about the game's virtual currency economy, and it may help give fellow devs a bit more insight into what players are willing to tolerate when it comes to rewards in a full-priced multiplayer game.

Fans can look forward to the change today, as an update will be "loaded" into the game according to DICE. One EA developer, whose tweets are now protected, said that they had received multiple death threats over the way microtransactions work in Battlefront II. Specifically, a controversial change to the game made it more hard to get Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker will now cost 15,000 credits each, while Leia, Chewie and the Emperor are 10,000 credits each, and Battlefront II's homegrown hero Iden Versio is 5,000 credits. However, by having to spend an inexplicable amount of time grinding to earn enough credits to buy them, in its current state EA has ensured that the majority of players won't actually be able to put in the time or throw up the cash to unlock every hero. Those loot boxes, combined with a new unlock system for heroes in which characters are acquired with in-game credits, has attracted no small amount of controversy in the run-up to release. "As one example, today we're making a substantial change based on what we've seen during the Play First trial".

Eminem Drops New Single "Walk On Water" Ft. Beyonce [Stream]
Another fan - Jalen A - was overjoyed as he wrote: 'Beyonce just gave nothing but church vocals on that song lol i live'. If you listen carefully and closely, you can hear the sounds of Eminem writing and ripping up paper in the background.

EA's response and subsequent backlash came after a Battlefront 2 player figured out it would take 40 hours to gain the 60,000 credits needed to unlock a hero or villain in another Reddit post. 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.

This is certainly a step in the right direction for Star Wars Battlefront II. "We know some of our most passionate fans, including those in our subreddit, have voiced their opinions, and we hear you". That means if a crate shipment turns up a duplicate of a card already owned, players will get a credit value based on its rank (starting at 200 credits). We're making the changes to the credit levels for unlocking heroes and we're going to keep making changes to improve the game experience over time. "And we are engaged in that conversation, engaging with our players on a daily basis as we think about that". Check out our helpful tips and tricks just below for how to earn the Battle Points quickly, in order to play as your favorite Star Wars characters as quickly as possible in an online game.
