Star Wars Battlefront II's progression system to be updated next week

Battlefront 2 Progression

You'll earn Experience Points for everything you do in multiplayer, and this can then be traded in to unlock or upgrade Star Cards. Since its release, a series of updates has looked at altering the game's progression system, including reduced prices for heroes, the complete removal of microtransactions, and changes to the credits that players could earn. Progression is now linear and tied to each class, hero, and ship. Once enough experience is earned so that the unit levels up, a Skill Point will be awarded - these can be used to unlock/upgrade a Star Card. Crates can also not be purchased with any currency, and will only be awarded as a daily login bonus, for completing timed challenges, or completing Milestones.

Everything you have unlocked already in the game you will retain and be able to use.

Everything players have already earned through Crates and Star Cards will still be theirs when the new update rolls out. It's a root and branch overhaul, that both greatly simplifies the player upgrade system, but also preserves all the progress you might have made up until now.

Crates will still be in the game, but they now no longer include Star Cards.

With this update, progression is now linear. They will only contain credits, emotes or other cosmetic items.

Snow alerts as Siberian winds bring 'mini Beast from the East'
Trains and planes were also cancelled as the snow persisted. "It is probably the coldest day of the lot", Mr Bowles said. He said: 'We don't expect anything like the same impact as a result of it, although there will be some snow about'.

The only thing that microtransactions will affect are the upcoming appearances, which are purchased directly with Crystals or in-game Credits.

We don't know what the first appearances will be but the Battlefront 2 blog post said: "If you've ever dreamed of being a part of the Resistance as a Rodian, your chance is right around the corner". It'll be interesting to see if EA's future games follow a similar model, or attempt to return to the paid loot box model Battlefront II featured at launch.

Whilst no more has been detailed, there is confirmation of new modes set to arrive within Star Wars Battlefront II within the coming months, all of which will offer all-new ways to play the game.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The new cosmetic system won't come into effect till April but from Wednesday, March 21 the game will feature an entirely new progression system. Hopefully this will have been a lesson learned by EA and other publishers.
