Electronic Arts scraps Battlefront II microtransactions

Battlefront 2

Electronic Arts is removing all in-game purchases from Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

The option to purchase crystals – an in-game currency – is now offline, and all progression will be earned through gameplay.

DICE General Manager Oskar Gabrielson said the company listened to feedback from the community and would make changes to Battlefront II to reduce the potential for unfair advantages.

He said microtransactions will return to the game once changes have been made and more free content has been added.

“The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date, only after we’ve made changes to the game,” said Gabrielson.
