6 Reasons Not to Buy Star Wars Battlefront 2 & 3 Reasons You Should

While some of you might want to order Star Wars Battlefront 2 right now, many others are better off waiting a few more days or maybe even a few more weeks.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 has landed for Xbox One, PS4, and Windows PC. DICE’s new entry into the series comes in a few different editions including a Deluxe version that grants you some extra items at the start.

Like the last version of Battlefront, Star Wars Battlefront 2 includes a pretty robust multiplayer experience with huge battles, iconic characters, and well-known locations. The company plans to expand the game with free content and the first free DLC expansion arrives in December.

Unlike the previous game, Star Wars Battlefront 2 includes a real single-player campaign and a controversial progression system that EA’s been forced to alter just days into its release.

The game’s progression system and microtransactions have put it into the spotlight ahead of Black Friday and the holidays and many people are trying to decide if it’s worth buying for the Xbox One X, Xbox One, PS4 Pro, PlayStation 4, or a Windows PC.

While it might be tempting to buy Star Wars Battlefront 2 right now now or in the near future, some of you might be better off taking a rain check. If you’re struggling with this decision, take a look at our list of reasons to buy, and avoid, Star Wars Battlefront 2 right now.

    Did they get rid of all the cheating going on in the first game? If not, what’s the point of getting this one? Players able to kill in one shot with crap weapons from across the battlefield, jet packs that are always charged, shooting someone in the FACE repeatedly and they don’t die, turn and shoot you once and you’re dead. It goes on and on and on and yeah you can report people but they never seem to be banned and an entire game of cheaters is back the next day. Do you have control of your damned game this time or not??

    Preordering is why EA keeps beating up your favourite titles. If you’d stop that stupidity they’d actually pay more attention to what they’re doing.

    You’ve already let them know that all they need to do for your money is release a fantastically early announcement coupled with a snazzy teaser trailer and everyone will make them richer.

    Invite them to work for their money for a change.
