Star Wars Battlefront II was definitely the star of EA’s E3 Press Conference. They showed tons of gameplay, revealed all DLC will be free and apologized for the disaster that was the first game.
EA was on the right track. But this is EA we’re talking about folks. Should have known this was all too good to be true.
Despite all the good they’re doing with the game EA decided to leave a sour taste in our mouths by including microtransactions in the game. According to the plug,
“You’ll be able to progress and unlock content using earned in-game currency, but if you want to accelerate that, if you can’t play for a week, you can purchase that.
The important thing is everything can be earned [through gameplay]. If you’re someone who spends time on the game, we love you, do your thing, do what you want to do. If you don’t have the time, you can spend money and we love you as well. It’s your choice.”
Despite all this news EA claims Battlefront II won’t be pay to win. We’ll see about that when the game drops this fall.
