Yep, so we have Loot Crates in Battlefront 2. It seemed too good to be true now, didn’t it? Worst of all: it’s not cosmetic…
Recently EA had so far been making incredible strides with Battlefront 2. Seemingly righting the wrongs of the first game.
There is a promising new story, characters, and troops from different time periods plus even free DLC. I’m not going to lie it was all very exciting and personally I was very tempted. Now I am a sucker for Star Wars but not really an FPS guy so that is quite some feat.
Today, however, things changed slightly: They now have added loot crates into the game. Presumably, this is to offset the free DLC.
Now if it was purely cosmetic I would think, hey why not. However, the loot is balance changing. Basically, they reward you with more effective abilities. I just hope it doesn’t tip the game into a pay to win direction.
Check out the video below chronicling the loot boxes.
Does this factor into your interest in the game?
