Battlefront 2 gets a jetpack mode and goes 60% off in Origin sale

More than ever before, games these days get very cheap, very fast. Even with that in mind, it seems awfully soon for a AAA, multi-million seller like Star Wars: Battlefront II to be going this low in price, even with some significant controversies along the way.

Dig into the best Star Wars games on PC.

EA are hosting a major sale on their titles across all platforms, including Origin on PC. Battlefront II is down to $23.99, and recent releases like Need for Speed Payback and FIFA 18 are getting similarly steep discounts. This is, of course, also a chance to get deals on other big EA franchises, including Battlefield, Titanfall, The Sims, Dragon Age, and Mass Effect. The sale lasts through March 6.

The latest patch for Battlefront II also brings some major additions, including a new mode called Jetpack Cargo. As the name implies, it has you jumping around in jetpacks for the entire round while wielding rocket launchers. This mode will only be available for a “limited time.”

Patch 1.2 brings some balance changes for heroes across the board, including a more maneuverable Boba Fett and a deadlier Yoda. There’s plenty more, and you can see everything the full patch notes. Worth noting - because I know how you love Battlefront II’s progression system - you’ll now get a few more credits for duplicate items.

Isn't it technically not so bad to buy the game as long as you don't buy any microtransactions?

If you like the changes they made from the first one for the sake of monetization then by all mean, buy it. I for one do not. I have it any way because it came with the PS4 Pro I bought my kids for Christmas and I think I played for about 3 hrs before I uninstalled it.

Typically, the longer it takes a MP game to go on sale for half off or greater, the better it's selling. I know from friends who still play it and from popular forum sties, that people are complaining that it's getting more and more difficult to find matches in their preferred modes of play. I'm sure the 60% off is to try and stop the bleeding of players.

Funny thing that as SWBF2 falls in players, SWBF1 has risen in players.

EA is a terrible company and you shouldn't support them.

A multiplayer game lives and dies by the size of its playerbase. So even if you "technically" don't engage in microtransactions yourself, you are supporting them, albeit indirectly, by keeping the game alive for those who do.

The only reason they are doing this is so schmucks buy the game before they reintroduce pay to win lootboxes.
