Today's update some tweaks to the game's progression and economy systems, and are the first step in a number of major changes going forward.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 update detailed
The end-of-round payout has been increased. This is an area we agree needed to be buffed a bit, especially when it comes to rewarding players for doing well in-game. We’re upping the number of Credits you get for a match across the board, and specifically bumping the top players on each team by even more.
Earn 3X more Credits daily in Arcade Mode. It’s been made clear that you were hitting the Arcade Mode Credit cap faster than we expected, so we wanted to alleviate that by increasing it to 1500 Credits. While we’re still looking into ways to add more content into it the mode in the long-term, we think that this should help in the near-term for those who want rewards for completing the different scenarios.
Daily Login Crates will now provide more crafting parts than before. You’ll notice the change right away when you log in. Crafting the Star Cards you want will help make sure you’re progressing in the direction you want, and we absolutely wantto empower that. This should help you get where you want to go faster when it comes to crafting and upgrading.
Tomorrow will see another update rolled out that introduces The Last Jedi Season for the game. This offers a host of new content, including new heroes, maps, and vehicles.
Among the new faces joining Battlefront 2 include Finn for the Resistance and Captain Phasma for the First Order. New story content chronicling the First Order's rise to power will be available on December 13.
