Since the start ofthe project, listening to fans has been important in making sure Star Wars" Battlefront" II is the very best experience for all of
you- were done this with the closed alpha, through the beta last month, and our Play First Trial. And we continue to make adjustments based on
your feedback as the game launches worldwide this week. Listening, and providing choices in how you play, will always be our principle
with Star Wars Battlefront II. We want to ensure the game is balanced and fun both today and for years into the future.
Making games great comes from regular tuning. As one example, today we' re making a substantial change based on what we' seen during
the Play First trial. There' s been a lot of discussion around the amount of anygame credits (and time) it takes to unlock some of our heroes,
especially Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, Unlocking a hero is a great accomplishment in the game, something we want players to have fun
earning. We used data from the beta to help set those levels, but it' s clear that more changes were needed.
So, we' re reducing the amount of credits needed to unlock the top heroes by 75%, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader will now be available for
15, 000 credits; Emperor Palomino, Chewbacca, and Leia organa for 10, 000 credits; and Iden at 5, 000 credits. Based on what we' seen in the
trial, this amount will make earning these heroes an achievement, but one that will be accessible for all players.
It' s a big change, and it' s one we can make quickly, It will be live today, with an update that is getting loaded into the game.
We' also been listening to how much you' re loving features in the game (Starfighter Assault, 40 player MP battles, Darth Maul lightsaber
throws, etc.) as well as what you haven' t liked. We know some of our most passionate fans, including those in our subreddit, have voiced their
opinions, and we hear you- were making the changes to the credit levels for unlocking heroes and we' re going to keep making changes to
improve the game experience over time. We welcome the conversation.
