So, No premium pass, no loot boxes, no battle packs. What's the catch?

 

Look at the content drop for Battlefront 2, there's your catch. If people think they're getting anywhere near the amount of post release content as BF1 they're in for rude awakening.

No one will believe it until after they end up ponying ~$30+ for the game and realise the lack of content. 

 

I am sure that BattleFront 2 would get a content drop around STAR WARS IX. Oh! Wait, they will release BattleFront 3 alongside that.

Battlefield DLCs are 3-6+ months apart. 4 major expansion over the course of 2 years. Not yearly cycle. 

 

Second, Battlefront II is active as ever and better than the first game by a mile. It's been like 7 months and has received enough post-launch content. The next season is scheduled for E3.

  • November - game release
  • December - multiplayer rewards get a significant boost
  • December 5th - faction challenges start
  • ‘Resurrection’ releases as part of The Last Jedi DLC.
  • At the same time, the game’s multiplayer expands with The Last Jedi content including a new Galactic Assault map on the planet Crait and Starfighter Assault battle above D’qar. It also adds two new heroes: Finn and Captain Phasma.
  • Patch 1.2 brings major major hero changes in February. 
  • Jetpack Cargo mode is added to the game
  • The Cloud City of Bespin is added as a map for Blast Mode and Heroes vs. Villains near the end of March. 
  • Patch on March 21st unlocks every hero and ship in the game
  • A limited time Ewok Hunt event is added.
  • Night on Endor  
  • Han Solo Season 
  • Hero Showdown Game Mode
  1. Starfighter
  2. Custom Arcade
  3. Jabba's Palace
  4. Leia Boushh

Laughing my fking a*s off :rofl: :rofl:

 

1 new map, 1 old map, 2 new heroes and zero new weapons. This is what constitutes to enough post-launch content now :lol:

^only 2 or 3 of those are actual new content like maps or characters. 

 

Although, I feel if the gameplay is strong then content updates being spaced out isn't a big problem. I put over 120 hours in Overwatch and never got bored of the maps which launched with the game. 

 

I am very much in favor of not having season pass. Fragmentation is a big issue in BF1.

Yeah, Joe's comment reads like when you have to write a 500 word word answer but you know only 2 sentences so you just pad it out.

I mean, there's a limit to how much you can spin bad stuff. One new map and no new weapons, vehicles or fighters? None? From a lore so rich with stuff to add? Come the fk on.

You can mostly solve the fragmentation issue by letting people play on new maps as long as someone in the lobby has the map pack. I read about some game doing this already but can't remember. I know GT5 did this, you could race on DLC tracks as long as lobby leader had them. Everyone downloads them as part of the patch anyway.

Overwatch is also a competitive shooter, so that aspect has to be looked at too. 

 

BattleFront has no such excuse. Even if they deliver, one new map per quarter, it would qualify as some support. Currently, they are struggling even to add content with the movie releases. I mean the last event based shenanigan from their side was for The Last Jedi. Post that, it has been awfully quiet. 

 

The way it is right now, F2P titles like Warframe, Paths of Exile, War Thunder offer a faster ToT than the major established houses in the field.

Not enough. Need monthly maps and characters. Doesn't matter if you had 120+ hours of fun. You still need more maps. Daily updates.

Free. Better than paying $$$ for half-arsed content you get these days. Imagine complaining about free content. Life must be sad. 

 

Overwatch in 2 years added these maps:

  • Horizon Lunar Colony
  • Rialto
  • Junkertown
  • Blizzard World
  • Eichenwalde
  • Numbani
  • Ilios
  • and arena maps

Same old Assault / Escort / Control modes. Some new characters.

 

Guess that's okay. aujJ24D.gif 

 

Season pass $60 - complain.

Free content $0 - complain.

 

The guy has not even played the base maps and all characters but first to complain about post-launch content. People these days. ROFL. aujJ24D.gif

SOLO movie just came out and there has already been an update adding the content. Plus, the 2nd part of the SOLO season is coming next month.

Oh they did bunch of event based, umm, events, the kind that Destiny 2 also shits out on bi-weekly basis for free users. I'm talking about actual new content, like stuff you get from map packs and stuff.

I wasn't complaining about post launch support just making light of your comment which was several lines long yet listed only 3-4 actual content updates.

Battlefront is an anomaly and it's a financial failure for all intents and purposes. It's not fair to judge all future endeavors using an anomaly as a reference point.

Although, not having a season pass takes off a lot of pressure from the devs for delivering new content. If they earn good money from MTX there would be very little motivation for them to come out with non cosmetic content.

This is EA's first attempt into this kind of model so I'll reserve my judgement for when it actually comes out.

Its not, far from it. There are publishers that would kill for 8M+ sales, especially for a title with mediocre review score and bad publicity.

Except it's not?

  • New single-player DLC that contains three new campaign chapters.
  • New arcade locations: Kashyyyk, Hoth, Endor, Crait, Jakku, and Death Star II.
  • New map: CRAIT (Galactic Assault)
  • New map: D’QAR (Starfighter Assault)
  • New map: Bespin
  • New hero ships – Tallie Lintra’s RZ-2 A-wing. For Poe Dameron, there is a new hero ship upgrade for his T-70 X-wing.
  • New mode: Jetpack Cargo
  • New event & mode: Ewok Hunt
  • More cosmetic customizations
  • New map: Jabba's Palace
  • New game mode: Hero Showdown
  • New arcade stuff - Starfighters added
  • Plus, new progression, a tonne of challenges and whatnot. 

Plus, the part 2 of SOLO will be out in June.

 

If you have not played or have no interest in other parts of the game, then don't bother posting half-arsed information. Battlefront II is doing just fine. Whoever plays it know how fun it actually is.

Both things came out within 17 days of game release (along with bunch of other TLJ stuff). That is one hell of way to Millennium Falcon your way through development, testing, balancing and QA. Unless of course it was cut from original game and held hostage for movie release, but that is a ridiculous thing to even think about. Why would anyone do such a thing?

Don't tell me what to do. I post whatever the frick I want.

 

Jokes aside, you get way too much worked up over this game. I can feel your heart-rate shooting up with your posts. You have way too many f**ks to give about nothing. I mean, may be it is doing fine may be it's not. Who gives a f**k. It's just a game. Just another piece of entertainment made to be gobbled up by people like you and me.

EA? Monies? I dunno? EA?

 

Well its not money because EA suddenly had a change of heart for no apparent reason and removed MTX, so I firmly believe they did it all in 17 days.

Well it is. It made way way less than expected. That's a financial failure. The license cost a lot of money and the game itself is very expensive. On top of that, EA has crazy good margins with its games. I'll go out on a limb and say it did not make the required ROI.

You got to be scraping the bottom of the barrel when you have to pad out the added content count with cosmetics and reworked mechanics because you released it broken.

Totally not related to Disney holding them by their balls.

We would have heard about heads rolling at DICE if that were the case. 

 

Not sure if this was posted here but two in-game currencies confirmed by EA. Most F2P titles have two currencies, I wonder why this needs as many.
