EA "temporarily" turns off Microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront II


Electronic Arts has announced that they have "temporarily" turned off the pay-to-win real money crystal purchases in the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II.

My take would be that they will turn them back on the second they get past the holiday shopping season. This is just to try to salvage their week 1 sales now that word is out about this game and the review scores are bad.

Yup, you will still need 2000+ hours of gameplay to unlock everything.

EA didn't react to gamers.

They reacted because Disney told them to drop it.

I was so looking forward to this game until I played beta and saw micro transactions were going to ruin it.

So does that mean as of right now there is no way to unlock Darth Vader?

Of course they are going to add micro transaction back in before the holiday season starts.

I never had plans to buy this game anyway. WWE 2k18 was ruined by loot boxes. 75% of the characters/moves/items etc. were locked behind a loot box system this year. I finally gave up and sold my copy on Ebay.

I'm not saying I work with Disney but, if I did work with Disney, I would tell you that when the Mouse calls you, you shut up and listen. Occasionally you offer a "Yes sir, Mr. Mickey."

Comedy gold there. Read them! You won't regret it!

"Congratulations, EA. You have earned one point. More points can be earned in 24 hours. Additional points can be purchased for $4.99 each. This is to give EA a sense of pride and accomplishment."
