Star Wars Battlefront 2 Live-Action Trailer is fantastic

Star Wars Battlefront II 40 Hour Hero Unlock Controversy

The above response from EA's Star Wars Battlefront 2 community management team now sits at 440,000+ downvotes, well and above the most disavowed, disagreed-upon comment in Reddit history.

In a detailed statement on the game's official website, EA explained that this adjustment will be available today and will reduce the amount of credit needed to unlock "top heroes" by 75%. Characters such as Emperor Palpatine, Chewbacca and Leia Organa require 40,000 credits, while the game's protagonist Iden Versio requires 20,000.

Regardless of all the controversy now surrounding the game's microtransaction situation, a Star Wars campaign only comes along every so often, and I'm still looking forward to it. Stay tuned to TL;DR Games to find out what we end up thinking of Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

So to play as any of the characters/vehicles just above, you'll unfortunately need to purchase them with Credits in the Collection tab of the main menu, before you can spend your in-game Battle Points to play as them. More information on that AMA will be coming down the pipeline shortly, but for now, head down to the comments section and let us know if this change is enough to get you to reconsider your stance on Battlefront 2. And we continue to make adjustments based on your feedback as the game launches worldwide this week.

The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes. "Unlocking a hero is a great accomplishment in the game, something we want players to have fun earning". We're making the changes to the credit levels for unlocking heroes and we're going to keep making changes to improve the game experience over time.

Barcelona to make £106 million Philippe Coutinho bid in January
Even if Coutinho doesn't leave Liverpool in January, it's nearly certain that Barcelona will come back for him in the summer. Former Liverpool striker Suarez praised Coutinho for committing himself to the Reds' cause for the 2017-18 season.

It takes something pretty special to create the most downvoted comment in Reddit history, and game developer EA has discovered that annoying Star Wars gamers certainly doesn't help. That starts tomorrow for those who have ordered the Elite Trooper edition, or the end of this week for regular editions of the game.

We'll be paying close attention to DICE and EA this week and spending some significant time with the game in live servers in order to bring you an accurate and fair Star Wars Battlefront II review later this week.

For lots more on the current state of Battlefront II's loot box system and why we think it's problematic, check out the video above. Issues range from concerns over the Loot Box system, to EA's own response to the community's uproar over it.

The Star Wars Battlefront franchise originally launched in 2004, and the reboot for modern consoles came in April 2015, once again giving players the opportunity to take part in the beloved franchise with updated graphics.

It's progress of sorts, and it shows that EA and DICE are listening.
