Star Wars Battlefront II

This genius went on to crunch some numbers on play time stating that if a gamer played 2.5 hours per day, spent $60 for the game, and $20 per month on microtransaction, that would work out at 40 cents per hour of entertainment.

"That's why we support EA's decision to temporarily remove in-game payments to address fan concerns". All of this comes after multiple days of outrage from fans who are upset that EA and developer DICE have implemented an online multiplayer system that gives an advantage to people who pay money.

This may be attributed to the recent controversy the game received regarding its implementation of microtransactions. With crystal purchases now disabled, you may not be able to pay for an advantage at present, but progressing still feels headache-inducingly convoluted and, worse still, thunderously boring, thanks to the luck-based doling out of ability-boosting Star Cards. The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date, only after we've made changes to the game.

So microtransactions will return.

United Kingdom and North American gaming habits aren't too dissimilar so it is possible the same fate will befall Star Wars: Battlefront II over on this side of the pond. But when it reemerges, EA is promising something players will find more palatable.

Star Wars: Battlefront II, the biggest first-person shooter of 2017 is finally out on retail shelves across the globe. "But as we approach the worldwide launch, it's clear that many of you feel there are still challenges in the design". And we've heard that this is overshadowing an otherwise great game. "Sorry we didn't get this right".

That they felt comfortable releasing a game with such contempt for its own player-base who paid "merely" £45 for the base retail game is appalling, and that "vanilla" PS4 owners are left with a jittery mess of a multiplayer mode only compounds how insulting a proposition Battlefront II feels at present.
