Star Wars Battlefront II new update is released and that changes the game’s progress system filled with loot boxes. One of the biggest criticisms from fans since the start was the problematic system to unlock iconic characters from the game such as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. Now, the new patch unlocked every hero in the game.
During the game’s pre-release period, gamer Conner Rust made easy calculations on how long one would need to spend in unlocking some characters in the game. Rust assumed that players would need to spend at least 40 hours of gameplay just to unlock characters such as Luke Skywalker.
Rust then took his findings on Reddit that approved the infamous answer from an EA representative and grew the most downvoted Reddit comment of all time. However, EA was quick to perform damage control by lowering the cost of opening heroes in the game, giving some players an edge by just using real-world money to open hero characters within the game.
Now, to improve the progression system in the game, Battlefront II has now unlocked all heroes to players of the game.
“Along with these changes, we’ve also unlocked all currently available Heroes and Hero Ships for everyone,” says community manager Mat Everett in an official statement. “With all characters now having a Unit Level, we don’t want to limit anyone’s chance to progress as we change the way you interact with these characters.”
From today, you will only have to download a small patch before being able to access all of the characters and their ships. Also, the patch includes the Cloud City of Bespin to the game as a map for the Blast Mode, Heroes v. Villains and Arcade mode.
