EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II drew widespread backlash last year for its predatory “pay to win” implementation of in-game gambling, with the selling point multiplayer mode’s progression system, high cost of unlocking popular franchise icons, and sparingly awarded rewards all revolving around loot-boxes and microtransactions. The controversy on Electronic Arts’ hands grew so dire, to the point it attracted both media and government attention, that the publisher suspended in-game payments before the game’s public launch.

Unfortunately, the possibility of Battlefront II‘s microtransactions returning since remained, and now it’s official. Hit the jump for more information.
