Star Wars Battlefront 2 progression system has been the reason for extreme controversy because of the microtransactions and the loot crates, which made the game seem like a pay-to-win. Last year, DICE decided to shut down all microtransactions as a reaction to the players' negative feedback. They also stated the change was temporary and that the system would be reviewed in time. The latest DICE blog post said the Star Wars Battlefront 2 progression system will be revamped and that we will know more about it in March:
"We're working on a revamped progression system. Your feedback has been essential here, and we are preparing significant changes to progression that will address many of the things we've seen players asking for. We'll be sharing more details about these changes in March."
Alongside with this announcement, DICE said that a new game mode will be available to players starting February. The game mode is called Jetpack Cargo and will be available only for a limited time, so make sure you make the most of it. The mode consists in "two teams of eight players equipped with jet packs compete in Jetpack Cargo, a frantic, fast-paced way to play".
In the same blog post a new Season has been announced:
"A new Season is coming soon. We’ve learned a lot from the first season of content for Star Wars Battlefront II, and we're integrating those insights into our plans moving forward. We know you’re waiting for details on what’s coming in the next season, and we’ll have more to tell you soon."
DICE says they are taking into account the players' feedback and that they want to give them "the best possible experience", so let's hope that they will do the right thing regarding the progression system.
