Star Wars Battlefront II originally released on November 17, 2017. In our review, we said “Star Wars Battlefront 2 has great feeling blasters, but its progression system makes firing them an unsatisfying grind.”
Since its release, EA has continuously supported it and even revamped the progression system and addressed the loot box controversy. With these updates and planned ones for February and March, it doesn’t look to be stopping that support any time soon.
