Snippet -

Star Wars Battlefront 2 has been review bombed over its recent "pay to win" controversy, with EA's upcoming shooter already being slammed online before its release.

The game's official Metascore sits at a respectable 79, an improvement over its predecessor's rating of 73. However, its user scores have been bombarded with negative reviews, as gamers continue to take out their frustrations on the sequels's use of microtransactions and loot boxes.

Its user score currently sits at a lowly 1.5, generated from 744 ratings, which indicates that users "overwhelming dislike" the game. The content of these reviews veers from measured complaints over EA's treatment of Battlefront 2's microtransactions, through to insults leveled at the game and the publisher.

DICE fails to quell Star Wars Battlefront 2 controversy in reddit AMA

Snippet -

DICE's much-anticipated, and impressively civil, Reddit AMA (that's Ask Me Anything, sort of like a Q&A) for the controversial Star Wars Battlefront 2 has now occurred. Unsurprisingly, it wasn't the bringer of too many revelations.

Battlefront 2's executive producer John Wasilczyk, associate design director Dennis Brannvall, and producer Paul Keslin were all on-hand to answer questions from the reddit community, and the whole thing passed on by with the effortlessly evasive slickness of a well-oiled corporate PR machine.

Hundreds of questions were posed by redditors, and 30 were answered during the discussion. Unsurprisingly, many of the community's tougher questions were gracefully avoided, with the general message of the evening seeming to be 'we'll keep an eye on the data and make adjustments later if need be'.

One of the biggest concerns around Battlefront 2 at present is just how long it will take players that don't want to dabble in loot crates to acquire everything in the game. It was, after all, recently reported that it could take up to 40 hours just to unlock one character - albeit via data which didn't take into account the game's full range of ways to earn credits.
