Star Wars Game In U-Turn After Player Anger

Star Wars Game In U-Turn After Player Anger

At the weekend a redditor complained of the excessive costs to unlock heroes such as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader - 60,000 credits at the time, equivalent to US$80. A reply by an EA Community Team employee who said the cost was meant to "provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes" was heavily ridiculed and became one of the most downvoted posts in Reddit history. "We used data from the beta to help set those levels, but it's clear that more changes were needed", he explained.

In case you missed the news, Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a game that you're going to have to sink plenty of hours into to unlock everything it has to offer, which includes one of its biggest attractions: Heroes. Unfortunately, overzealous fans have taken it way too far and harassed the game's developers - even sending deaththreats, which, and I can't believe I have to write this, is never okay. "Based on what we've seen in the trial, this amount will make earning these heroes an achievement, but one that will be accessible for all players".

Furthermore, EA announced they will be holding an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Wednesday with the community on their official subreddit.

Battlefront II features a single-player story mode - which lets you take control of a member of the Empire - but the controversy has surrounded its multiplayer.

EA's somewhat bold reaction on Reddit yesterday earned it the title of the most downvoted comment in the site's history. After all, much like Need For Speed: Payback, Battlefront 2 is a game that's being sold at full price at retail by a publisher who still seems intent on gouging more money out of players after purchase. It will go live today ahead of the game's launch on November 17th, but players who pre-ordered Battlefront II for early access should see the discount when they boot the game up tomorrow. The company has now thanked that particular community for its passion.

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

During an earnings call recently, EA CEO Andrew Wilson suggested that the players voicing concerns about Battlefront II's loot boxes are a vocal minority.

Yeo says this isn't great for the games industry because it can cause it to focus more on creating false values for items rather than creating compelling games.

Many are also anxious about how much credit can be earned through gameplay and how loot boxes - which, when opened, offer randomised rewards - bought with real money provide competitive advantages, including better items and faster progression. "And we are engaged in that conversation, engaging with our players on a daily basis as we think about that".
