Default Star Wars Battlefront II microtransactions

Not a rant from me since I'm totally uninterested in the game, but plenty of players who are are ranting over the microtransactions and loot chests they've introduced.

same, but I don't buy any game anymore before I make a proper check with reviews etc

hearing that CoD, battlefront, NFS & Shadow of War etc etc. all have lootboxes in different kind of ways.

tells me it won't stop and it will only become worse if this shit continues

already scrapped some games I had on my wishlist but because of those reasons I removed them

It's the worse kind of microtransactions: the pay to win ones. You can literally use real money to buy shit ingame to give you an advantage in multiplayer.

Nowadays any game with any kind of microtransactions or just lootboxes gets taken off of my wish list.

If I didn't like the old Battlefront games so much I probably wouldn't care about this at all, but lordy lord is EA making a dog's dinner out of the Battlefront series. Their PR must be pretty upset after making Reddit history with one of the most downvoted comments of all time.

the entire AAA industry has gone insane for quite a while. I say let them. As long as smaller studios don't participate with the nonsense and keep making proper games... I'll be happy.

Even if you take the lootboxes out of those games. They're still not fun to play.

That's EA for you, the only thing they care about is their bottom line. Nothing else matters. This is yet another example.

Haven't bought an EA published game in years, that won't change either.

If the way they treat their franchises isn't enough to make you swear off EA, the number of studios they've killed should be.

Bullfrog, Maxis, Pandemic, Origin, Mythic... the list goes on and on.

Now they bought Respawn Entertainment, the company that made the Titanfall games. Can't wait for Titanfall 3: War of the Lootboxes and then the studio being shutdown.
