Battlefront 2 revamped progression system inbound

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Promising 'significant changes.'

A reworked progression system will be coming to Star Wars: Battlefront 2 within the next few months.

DICE has announced that the new system will introduce “significant changes” and takes into account player feedback.

More information on the specific changes is due in March.

Previously, EA cut the cost of heroes in the game by 75% before eventually taking the drastic step of disabling microtransactions altogether. Developers DICE then got to work on improvements to the progression system, with promises of large changes in the future.

Several months down the line, it appears we’re getting closer to hearing what form these changes will take. Though four months from release may prove too little too late.

Battlefront 2 recently received its first patch of the year, adding Iden Versio’s TIE fighter, a new Blast map, and tweaks to Wookies and Boba Fett. February will also see a new limited-time mode called Jetpack Cargo make its way into the game.
