DICE offers clarification on Star Wars: Battlefront 2's controversial crate system

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta end date has been confirmed

Each loot crate has been detailed to contain more than just cosmetic items - the crates will contain Star Cars, Weapons and "other" valuable resources.

Duplicate Star Cards picked up in crates will also give crafting parts so players can upgrade Star Cards of their choice.

Although there had been plenty of optimism coming up to the release of Star Wars Battlefront 2, it's fair to say that there's a little bit more caution from fans now, after the game's beta brought up concerns that its loot box system could be considered pay-to-win. You'll also get instant access to a special The Last Jedi-themed Millennium Falcon, as well as an epic Lightsaber Mastery Star Card for Yoda.

"You have to earn the right to be able to upgrade Star Cards and unlock most Weapons", it explained, "You can only upgrade or unlock them if you have reached a high enough rank, which is determined by playing the game". However, rather than a total overhaul and scrapping of microtransactions, I think we'll probably see a more generous distribution of in-game currency at the end of a match, or something similar.

The blog then offers six bullet points describing the progression system in more detail, as well as implying that that in the future there'll be a game mode where all players will have the same set of Star Cards with the same values. In its post, EA was quick to state that the system that was represented in the beta was not complete, and it will continue to be tuned.

EA has officially confirmed today that the Star Wars: Battlefront 2 open beta deadline has been extended. This is due to the fact that no additional new content will be made available, so players will still have to wait for the November release to be able to play the full version of the game - if they have already grown exhausted of the beta test. It provides them with valuable data that they can use to ensure that the game's final launch goes off without any issues.

"Star Wars Battlefront 2" will be released on November 17 for the PLayStation 4, Xbox One and the PC.

Now that EA has clarified how the Crates will work in "Star Wars Battlefront 2", the publisher also thanked everyone who were able to participate in the open beta.
