New Live-Action Star Wars Battlefront II Trailer from PlayStation

EA responds to Star Wars Battlefront II lootbox controversy, becomes most downvoted response of all time on Reddit

Because in-game credits are handed out on a time-played basis, rather than an accomplishment basis, one user calculated it would take 40 hours of playing just to unlock Luke Skywalker's character.

The post has become the most "downvoted" (a way for users to show their disapproval) post in Reddit history, crushing the record set by a user who specifically asked to be downvoted as much as possible. Some of the posts are people - from fans to those claiming to be a part of the games industry - going into what they dislike about the game, while others are making fun of EA and the situation as a whole.

There are many different obtainable items you can get hold of in Star Wars Battlefront 2 through the Loot Crates system, all of which are obtainable with in-game currency. The first-person shooter "Star Wars" game costs $60, and is scheduled to launch on November 17 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Speaking of earning credits, we're constantly evaluating and tweaking the earn rates versus the cost of crates and heroes. There's a wide range in there between "a sense of pride and accomplishment", a cakewalk, and the absurd amount of play now required, especially considering that some of the current locked characters (not to mention future additions) are exactly the ones you'd buy a Star Wars game to play. You don't have to buy them - they're earned through playing the game.

Apologies for not being more active these past weeks leading up to launch - as you know things get really hectic and you tend to spend whatever spare freetime you have recovering.

"We selected initial values based upon data from the Open Beta and other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch". We can't say for certain how many Credits you'll earn for a particular performance, but we can say that the better the performance, the more Credits you'll earn.

Joe Biden: 'I'm Not Closing The Door' on 2020 Run
Since leaving the White House, Biden has launched the political action committee American Possibilities and the Biden Foundation. Biden will be 76 by the time the next Presidential election comes around, just 2 years older than Trump will be at that time.

The dev team will be around Battlefront II for a long time. In fact, nearly no one is taking the cheeky response to not "rebel" seriously.

It's a major selling point of the "Battlefront" series, offering "Star Wars" fans a greatest-hits version of the beloved sci-fi universe.

It's unfortunate that players may need to grind continuously to unlock iconic characters from the Star Wars, which is a huge appeal in Battlefront 2 for hardcore fans.

The previous "Battlefront" game had no such system.

According to the post, the company's intent in locking the hero characters behind that much work is "to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment".
