Star Wars: Battlefront

Is the Battlefront 2 Campaign the Best Star Wars Story in Gaming?

There hasn’t been a great Star Wars game with a quality story since The Old Republic. Those of you who have been here with us since the beginning know that it’s been nearly 6 years now. Needless to say, we’re overdue a new game with a great story. Will Star Wars Battlefront be that game? Some have hoped for it but the first game didn’t measure up. So did DICE listen to the fans for the sequel? Some say yes. Time will tell for sure. Early access was given to a handful of gaming reviewers and from that, we ask the question: Is the story any good? Gamerevolution seems to think it was. From their preview of the game: “My time with the Star Wars Battlefront 2 campaign has shown there’s hope that Star Wars storytelling in video games isn’t dead.” Okay, I’m intrigued. Tell me more… He says this…

Star Wars Battlefront II Multiplayer Review

When it comes to Star Wars Battlefront 2’s multiplayer mode, the fans had a lot of feedback to deliver to DICE. It would seem the developer may have taken some of this into consideration when it comes to making With a lot of early previews out, we got to see what some game reviewers think of the game before it was available to everyone on November 17th. We already know there is a big controversy around loot boxes, and the amount of time or money it will take to unlock everything. But what about the gameplay itself? What about the multiplayer modes and features? What about the modes and maps? Is there still a playable, enjoyable game in there, despite the complaints? This reviewer from Twinfinite seems to think so. They say, “We recently got some extensive hands-on time with the multiplayer, and what we found was a robust offering with…

The Microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront 2 have been temporarily disabled

EA is temporarily pulling the microtransactions from Star Wars Battlefront II. This is probably due to the outcry in the community, and the little calculation we posted the other day. This is a pretty daring move just hourse before the official relase of Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Community Manager Apologizes for Angering Players

There has been a lot of drama in the Star Wars Battlefront 2 community in the past few days. Some of it was regarding a post that EA community manager Mat Everett made on Twitter that ticked a lot of people off. He says the tweet was “taken out of context” but many who had purchased the game believed he was insulting them over their complaints about the game. Like we said, drama! So, what actually went down? Star Wars: Battlefront 2 has been in the headlines a lot lately, and not for very good reasons, honestly. It was recently reported that it could take up to 40 hours to unlock even a single hero in the game without purchasing loot boxes, leaving players to feel like it’s a money sink. Some have criticized EA for what they are calling predatory microtransaction practices. In fact, the debate over this has become so…

Developers Blame EA for Star Wars Battlefront 2 Controversy

Speaking of the big Star Wars Battlefront 2 controversy of the past couple of days, more and more details are emerging and no one seems to want to admit blame for anything that’s happening. Players were enraged days before the official release (Nov 17th) because of the multiplayer monetization methods that are being called aggressive and predatory. First, it had loot boxes, which people weren’t keen on. Then, they tried to modify the loot box system to calm the angered fans, but they may have even made things worse. As review copies made their rounds, details came out about the game that includes Star Wars Battlefront 2’s wildly expensive hero/villain unlocks, requiring countless hours of play in order to amass enough credits to purchase just one character. The restrictions that were uncovered, combined with EAs poor solution to the backlash just made it worse. So, before the game even officially…

It will take 4,528 hours of gameplay (or $2100) to unlock all base-game content in star Wars: Battlefront 2

Just a heads up. With the system implemented in Star Wars: Battlefront 2, it will take you quite a big wallet, or tons of free gaming time on your hand, to unlock the whole game. Here is the break down: Remeber also to check out: STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT 2 All Cutscenes Full Movie 2017 Notes I’m assuming that all cards are already possessed, are at level 3, and that the player has 0 credits and crafting parts left over. I’m also assuming that all one time rewards (challenges and level rewards) were used while getting the cards to level 3, so they are not factored in. Cards from loot crates are assumed to be level 1 55% of the time, level 2 40% of the time, and level 3 5% of the time. Duplicate credit values are assumed to be 200 for a level 1, 400 for a level 2, and…

EA removed RNG progression system for Star Wars Battlefront II, rebalanced loot crates

EA and DICE have announced that they have made changes to crates and progression based on player’s feedback. According to the press release, the beta gave the team a chance to test all of its systems in action and tune things up for better balance. As such, Epic Star Cards, the highest tier of Star Cards available at launch, have been removed from Crates. Here’s what I’ve realized from this entire P2W controversy. Most gamers are people with lots of time and not a lot of money, or at least not a lot of money they’re willing to spend on games. Most of them also want to retain whatever advantages they can, but don’t like it when the tables are turned on them and someone has an advantage over them. How do I know this? Simple. Because people aren’t remotely bothered by the notion that Player X has an advantage…

The long-anticipated Star Wars Battlefront 2 game is packed to the brim with action, plot twists and more. Any self-respecting Star Wars enthusiast will have a keen idea of what to expect, story-wise, having watched the single and multiplayer trailer a few times just for good measure. However, not many people are aware that EA and DICE have made the decision to bring back an original Star Wars character back from the dead for a small cameo appearance, and this could make the game even more successful. Spoiler Alert Battle Front 2 takes players straight into the action, just like a CAD casino. The game kicks off somewhere towards the end of Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. This is the part just before the rebels are able to penetrate the Empire’s defences and destroy the Death Star. If you are one of those players who always want to be…
