Review: Star Wars Battlefront II

In the time since I posted my review-in-progress for Star Wars Battlefront II, EA temporarily halted the sale of in-game purchases. "This means that the option to purchase crystals in the game is now offline, and all progression will be ea...

Review in Progress: Star Wars Battlefront II

Star Wars Battlefront II has left me scatterbrained. It's simultaneously the game I wish we would've gotten from DICE last time around and also a worst-case scenario with its far-reaching, impossible-to-ignore loot boxes and progression sys...

A better look at Star Wars Battlefront II's story

Loot boxes aren't considered gambling, claims ESRB

The first major appearance of loot boxes in the western marketplace was in September 2010, when Valve transitioned Team Fortress 2 from a pay-once model to a free-to-play model. Players could earn "crates" that could be opened with purchasa...

What did you think of the Star Wars Battlefront II beta?

Xbox Live goes free for the Battlefront II beta this weekend

The open beta for Star Wars Battlefront II is all the rage right now, but some people might not be sure if they want to pay for Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus just to play a beta. I know I wouldn't, but I also have PC as an option. If y...

Star Wars Battlefront II is a much-needed step up

I've spent a few hours with the Star Wars Battlefront II multiplayer beta, and, you know what? I wouldn't mind playing for a few more hours rolling around as a droid or going HAM as Darth Maul. Shallow as the last game often felt, I stuck w...

Take a look at this week's Star Wars Battlefront II beta

The Star Wars Battlefront II beta is nearly here and based on how well the beta for the last game went, it should be huge. We recapped the modes and maps last week, but now we've got a concise video to match those words. I'm glad DICE is i...

I like where Star Wars Battlefront II's story is headed

Now this is what I was missing from DICE's Star Wars Battlefront. The sequel will have an honest-to-goodness campaign that falls between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, hence that double-take-inducing image. Here's a...

Star Wars Battlefront II's early access period is set

As is the case with most of EA's big games, Star Wars Battlefront II (read: not Star Wars: Battlefront 2, that old game that is still better than most recent Battlefront entries) will be available in early access form before launc...

Battlefront II will not have a season pass

One of the worst things about 2015's Star Wars Battlefront was that the game shipped with a season pass while being light on content. It would be one thing if the game packed a wallop and had players wanting to return, but gating off a bunc...

Star Wars Battlefront II will span multiple eras

Based on where Star Wars Battlefront started and where it has ended up after numerous updates and several paid expansion packs, I'm expecting better things for the sequel. A story mode is, of course, the big one. We already knew to expect t...
