EA reduces cost of Star Wars Battlefront 2's locked characters by 75%
14 November, 2017, 01:56 | Author: Janis Wilson
Characters such as Emperor Palpatine, Chewbacca and Leia Organa require 40,000 credits, while the game's protagonist Iden Versio requires 20,000. "It's a big change, and it's one we can make quickly".
This change is set to go into effect with an update today. That the likes of Darth Vader are only attainable via excessive amounts of grinding is just as much as a design flaw as a poor frame rate or a shoddy camera.
"There's been a lot of discussion around the amount of in-game credits (and time) it takes to unlock some of our heroes", reads an excerpt of today's company blog post.
Additionally, to keep a dialogue going, DICE members will be participating in a Reddit AMA this Wednesday where players can talk to them regarding the game.
The original story is below.
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.
The above response from EA's Star Wars Battlefront 2 community management team now sits at 440,000+ downvotes, well and above the most disavowed, disagreed-upon comment in Reddit history.
Subscribers to the gaming service EA Access, who get first dibs on some games during their prerelease trial period, figured out that unlocking playable heroes like Luke Skywalker requires either a 40-hour grind fest or pay-to-play.
It adds that EA determined the in-game credit cost of heroes based on data from the open beta and more. And this is on top of the $60+ it cost to initially buy the game, mind you.
We appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion the community has put forth around the current topics here on Reddit, our forums and across numerous social media outlets.
EA concluded by saying it "will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback", and it's already delivered - a new post confirms that the characters' costs will be reduced by 75%.
It's progress of sorts, and it shows that EA and DICE are listening. Of course you do.
