Star Wars Battlefront 2 has had a troubled marketing campaign to say the least. We'll update you on the situation as it continues to unfold, but as of right now don't expect to be able to purchase any Crystals, no matter what platform you're playing on.

In news that should make everyone (including us!) happy, EA finally, finally caved and is taking out all the Star Wars Battlefront II microtransactions that are making everyone very unhappy.

Gabrielson added that crystals will be available to purchase in-game at a later date.

"We hear you loud and clear, so we're turning off all in-game purchases", general manager of DICE, Oskar Gabrielson, stated.

Details are scarce on what Battlefront 2's new progression will look like, but all in-game purchases are gone for now. We want you to enjoy it, so please keep your thoughts coming. This also creates a pay to win environment, similar to that in a mobile game like Clash of Clans, where the players willing to spend the most amount of money will perform better in matches.

Before the announcement was made, players were expecting to either earn credits that unlock bonus material by putting a helluva lot of time and patience into it, or by getting their wallets out. The post is now the most down-voted post in Reddit's history, current sitting at negative 678,000 points.

In the past two weeks leading up to the release, Battlefront II has been firebombed with bad press. After widespread complaints on Reddit and other place, it was suggested that the game was imbalanced where it could take dozens of hours to unlock iconic characters like Luke Skywalker to be unlocked without paying. As long as they can rework the system so that microtransactions don't in any way affect progression or give advantages in the game, they will remain entirely optional.

Regardless if this was changed due to gamer pressure or not, it's certainly a victory for gamers worldwide.

His statement didn't directly address the concerns of the Belgian Gaming Commission, which is investigating how players in Battlefront II and similar games are rewarded by unlocking "looting boxes".
