The much-maligned progression system in Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be getting a heavy revamp, according to EA and DICE. They haven’t shared any further details; we’ll have to wait until March for that. They’ve also announced a new season, and a new game mode, called Jetpack Cargo. Hopefully, they’ll be able to save whatever there is left to save.
EA and DICE have finally announced their first real step into real damage control with Star Wars Battlefront 2. After they’ve turned off the microtransactions, the game has basically become a boring grindfest slog. So, according to a new update post on the Star Wars Battlefront 2 website, they’re finally planning to do something about it. I don’t recommend that you read the post too closely, though. It’s full of EA showing of the “success” of the game, and touting everything that the players have achieved. Also, they maintain that their goal “has always been to create the best possible experience taking into account the feedback of our fans to continue to evolve and grow Star Wars Battlefront II.” Yeah, it’s kinda gross, but oh well.
That being said, let’s go over what exactly they have in plan. Well, nothing in particular. They’re apparently working on “significant changes to progression that will address many of the things we’ve seen players asking for.” That’s all we know so far. More details will be coming in March. That’s next to nothing to work on, and they sure are relying on player good will to stay until March. That being said, at least they’re making some progress. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what they have in mind.
Other things mentioned in the update include a new game mode, Jetpack Cargo, and the announcement of a new season that’s “coming soon”. So, that’s what we can look forward to in the future of Battlefront 2. Let’s see what the future brings.
