Star Wars Battlefront II Progression System To Be Revamped Next Week
Star Wars Battlefront II will receive a major update next week, introducing the long-anticipated changes to the game’s progression system.
Starting from March 21st, Star Wars Battlefront II will sport a linear progression system, with Star Cards and other items impacting gameplay only being obtainable by playing. Everything that has been unlocked will stay unlocked, and crates will not longer include Star Cards.
With this update, progression is now linear. Star Cards, or any other item impacting gameplay, will only be earned through gameplay and will not be available for purchase. Instead, you’ll earn experience points for the classes, hero characters, and ships that you choose to play in multiplayer. If you earn enough experience points to gain a level for that unit, you’ll receive one Skill Point that can be used to unlock or upgrade the eligible Star Card you’d like to equip.
You’ll keep everything you’ve already earned and unlocked. You will keep all of the Star Cards, heroes, weapons, or anything else you have already earned. What you have earned will still be available to use with this update regardless of how much or little progress you have already made.
Crates no longer include Star Cards and cannot be purchased. Crates are earned by logging in daily, completing Milestones, and through timed challenges. Inside of these crates, you’ll find Credits or cosmetic items, such as emotes or victory poses, but nothing that impacts gameplay.
New appearances will only be available through in-game Credits and Crystals starting next month.
Starting in April, you’ll be able to get appearances directly through in-game Credits or Crystals. The first new appearances are coming soon, meaning you’ll be able to grab new looks for your heroes and troopers directly by using either Credits (earned in-game) or Crystals (available to purchase in-game and through first-party stores). If you’ve ever dreamed of being a part of the Resistance as a Rodian, your chance is right around the corner.
Star Wars Battlefront II is now out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
