Star Wars Battlefront 2’s new cosmetic microtransactions are finally here

Electronic Arts and DICE have its new cosmetic microtransaction system into Star Wars Battlefront 2.

The in-game purchases come as part of this week’s ‘Night on Endor’ update which also adds a new mode where players can take control of Ewoks.

Cosmetic options available, with more to be added in future, include new outfits for Rey, Kylo Ren and an assortment of standard units in different rarities.

Much like the loot-boxes which were removed from Battlefront 2 upon its release, cosmetic items can be purchased using in-game credits or crystals.

Crystals can be purchased with real world money while credits are earned through gaining experience and levelling up in online multiplayer.

You can purchase crystals in a number of different quantities. Courtesy of Eurogamer, we’ve compiled the full list of prices below:

  • 500 Crystals – £3.99
  • 1100 Crystals – £7.99
  • 2100 Crystals – £15.99
  • 4400 Crystals – £31.99

Electronics Arts said it will “be better” following criticism of Star Wars Battlefront 2’s progression system and it can’t afford to make the same mistakes with Anthem and Battlefield 5

We recently doeve back into Star Wars Battlefront 2 to see how it’d improved since its initial release. It’s still an enjoyable shooter, and the overhauled progression system is a welcome thing to see:

“Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will never be the game it was meant to be, but this patch takes it a little closer, if only by a few small steps. However, microtransactions are far less frustrating now, and that’s a good thing.”
