Battlefront II uses premium currency, prices revealed

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta end date has been confirmed

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is nearly here, and if you just played the recent beta, you're probably aching to engage in more intergalactic warfare when the game hits PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 17. The Star Cards are the focus of contention as they offer competitive upgrades.

DICE pointed out that the loot box and progression systems in the beta are not representative of the final product, but it also confirmed that players will find Star Cards (that give your character bonus abilities) in those randomized crates - you just won't get the best ones.

As a balance goal, we're working towards having the most powerful items in the game only earnable via in-game achievements.

We are beyond the Star Wars Battlefront II beta, and it looks like the game is going to have microtransactions.

Tim Hortons is selling Buffalo sauce-flavored lattes - and people are disgusted
TIM HORTONSĀ® has more than 4,600 system wide restaurants located in Canada , the United States, and around the world. The lattes are available today, but only at two Tim Hortons locations in - you guessed it - Buffalo, New York.

Yes, EA has dropped the season pass and all future DLC will be free, but that doesn't necessarily mean players will be happy with pay-to-win loot crates.

The description section provides information on where you can make use of these Crystals - "Use Star Wars Battlefront II virtual currency Crystals to purchase Crates, giving you a selection of new Star Cards, weapons, emotes, and other valuable resources to continue your Star Wars hero's journey". You can see what they said down below. "You have to earn the right to be able to upgrade Star Cards and unlock most weapons", it explained.

Despite DICE's reassurances, there are still those who want to play a version of the game where you don't have to worry about what Star Cards you or your opponent have access to.

The developer also mentions that voices asking for ways to play the game with the same set of star cards with flattened values have been "heard" even if no implementation was promised. Like everything else, we will be continually making necessary changes to ensure the game is fun for everyone. Hopefully, the changes on deck, particularly around loot crates, will make for a solid release in the coming weeks.
