Star Wars Battlefront II Will Have Microtransactions

EA pleased gamers worldwide earlier this week when they revealed free seasonal DLC would be coming to Star Wars Battlefront II. What they seemingly forgot to announce at the time were the title’s microtransactions, however.

Talking with Gamespot Battlefront II’s design director Niklas Fegraeus confirmed the game will include ways to spend your cash.

“The important thing is everything can be earned [through gameplay]. If you’re someone who spends time on the game, we love you, do your thing, do what you want to do. If you don’t have the time, you can spend money and we love you as well. It’s your choice.”

While this wont separate the player base in a way the first game’s paid maps and modes did, the ability to purchase anything other than cosmetic items – for example the game’s Battlepoints currency system – will surely cause a “pay-to-win” problem.
