EA was heavily criticized for its approach to microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront 2 so it obviously won't be taking the same approach with Battlefield 5.
In a recent interview with The Verge, EA executive Patrick Söderlund says the company learned from the mistakes it made with Star Wars Battlefront 2's controversial loot system.
Acccording to Söderlund for "games that come next, for Battlefield or for Anthem" gamers have "made it very clear that we can’t afford to make similar mistakes. And we won’t."
EA says Battlefield 5 won't come with any "pay to win" features and won't include Battlepacks like the ones in Battlefield 1.
The company's confirmed two forms of in-game currency. One is called Grind Currency which can be earned by playing the game.
The other form is called Real-Money (Premium) Currency which players can buy to obtain cosmetic items for use in the game.
