Star Wars Battlefront II |BETA| Execute Pre-Order 66

Played one round of Galactic Assault as the GAR. I really like it, its not as different from 2015 in terms of gunplay as I thought. ADSing doesn't really do much to help you, hipfire is where its at again. Though the default Assault blaster has much more recoil and spread than any blaster in the 2015 game did.

One thing is that the blaster bolts look too small so its harder to see where your shots are going compared to the 2015 game.

Anybody have a spare Xbox One code kicking around? Don’t mean to shit up the thread with code begging but I pre-ordered on PS4 and apparently all of my friends wound up on Xbox this time around so I’d love to hop in there.

Oh and just a tip for streamers, if you title your stream anything in the proximity of “Beta HYPE!”, there’s a 99.99% chance I’ll be turned off, lol.
 
Played 3 matches. Its a blast to play, much better than the first one. The star card system is pay to win imo, there are damage buffs and much more that makes you better. I hope you are getting enough crates while playing. And boy does this look ugly on the x1, its not even funny
 
Anyone else having an issue on Xbox where it locks on the User Agreement? I have tried quitting the game and restarting my Xbox, but it still locks every time it gets to the User Agreement. Won't let me Accept or Decline or anything. No button inputs do anything (except the Xbox button).
 
Download is up now for me on PS4! (with redeemed code last week)

Searched the beta in the store and the button that said "Not available for purchase" earlier now said "Download".

WTF. Really?

In that case, unless the single player is great, im fucking out.
 
How does the reload system work this time? Sometimes I get the overheating minigame and sometimes I get this 'Press X' input.

Also, graphics are ROUGH on XB1. Flametroopers are garbage amd heavies are way too strong.

Awesome glad it helped someone else! The communication from EA on this is appalling.

Let's not the jump the gun here - we always knew that Star Cards would give some small advantages and the alpha was handing out the boxes like crazy - if it is the same in the beta/release it most certainly is not P2W

Any kind of advantage you can buy is a P2W economy.

No, not really. Its not P2W at all. Everything can be unlocked by playing normally. Stuff in crates is just shortcuts.



My first round.

Issue is you can not buy direct - they are loot boxes.

However upon reflection i do agree with you - there is an element of P2W but not in the traditional sense. as said above - the creates are shortcuts so it is pay to cut time off rather then items giving you an advantage behind a paywall.
