Star Wars: Battlefront II seems to be the next logical step in the evolution of DICE’s multiplayer shooting franchise. The game makes up for what was missing from the first game, most notably with a single-player campaign and improvements to maps.
It goes to show that the team is listening closely to fans this time around. And while not everything has been addressed yet – like the hubbub going around with the loot boxes – it certainly is paying attention.
Over on the Star Wars: Battlefront Subreddit, senior level designer Peter Vesti explained that DICE is “reading pretty much everything” fans write online, taking notes in the process. And even though they don’t always make comments, it’s mainly because “we don’t feel we can add anything useful to the discussion.”
Here’s the comment in full from Vesti: “I mostly respond to level design questions and feedback - since that's what I do. There hasn't been much feedback in that area for a while. When we don't comment on issues, it mostly means that we don't feel we can add anything useful to the discussion. We are reading pretty much everything though!”
The company had previous noted that “you can progress just by playing the game” without needing to purchase loot boxes…so fans can rest easy.
As far as what else the Battlefront picture holds, we’ll have to see what’s planned with the downloadable content in the months ahead.
