Character customisation could be on its way to Star Wars Battlefront 2

Datamining players have found evidence of a character customisation system in Star Wars Battlefront 2.

While currently not present in the sci-fi multiplayer shooter, this uncovered evidence suggests that a more comprehensive model of progression could be on its way.

Reddit user uninspired_zebra discovered the customisation tools in a recent video, showing that numerous skins can be applied to standard soldiers.

Battlefront 2 has received ample criticism for its progression system relying primarily on loot boxes, with customisation options present in the previous game being almost completely absent.

Microtransactions have currently been removed from Star Wars Battlefront 2 with plans to add them back in at a later date. Currently, you can only purchase loot crates with credits earned in-game.

The cost of purchasing heroes such as Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker was also reduced by 75 percent followed fan backlash. However, grinding to unlock them is still required for the most part. 

Time will tell how Electronic Arts and DICE hope to reinvent Star Wars Battlefront 2, but a robust customisation system would certainly be a good start.
