Star Wars Battlefront II discounted to $6.25 on the Microsoft Store

Star Wars Battlefront II is a multiplayer shooter which places you in various combat scenarios across the Star Wars galaxy as you embark on a first or third-person action experience. Iconic characters like Darth Maul, Han Solo, and Kylo Ren make an appearance in this game, and there are be plenty of other surprises across its campaign and multiplayer modes. While the campaign may be short, it's a lot of fun.

Star Wars Battlefront II is currently a part of EA Access, a subscription service which grants you access to numerous EA titles, but it's also discounted to just $6.25 on the Microsoft Store. This sale will only last for the next 3 days so if you're interested in the game, you have to act quite soon.

Star Wars Battlefront II ignited a microtransactions controversy which a lot of foreign governments cracked down on. While EA eventually changed the business model of the game, it still left fans disillusioned. Not only did the microtransactions impact the review scores, but they overshadowed anything positive about the game, like its single-player campaign. Hopefully the publisher has learned its lesson from this launch.

Over the past few months, EA has turned the game around. It no longer features a pay-to-win microtransactions model and lets you earn gear and other cosmetics rather easily. However, it seems like the damaged has been done. Are you interested in Star Wars Battlefront II? Let us know. With games like Anthem around the corner, Star Wars Battlefront II definitely has its work cut out.

  • The battlefront games never piqued my interest. I mean come on how can you have a star wars game without the insane force powers you have in games like force unleashed and SWTOR
  • Jedi Academy is free later this month, that's a proper campaign.
  • I picked it up for $6... However can't play it for about 2 more months until I finish up this deployment 🤔
  • Now that's a tempting price. I'm actually going to pick this one up!
  • Its a good game with bad press. Not the greatest game of all time, but worth $10 easily. $6.25 is a steal for some fun
  • I thought it would be FTP with microtransactions funding it by now...
  • Bc ea is ea, which sucks for developer, I don't even want to give them $7. But this IS a good deal. Decisions, decisions... Anyone want to chime in with their opinions?
  • It's worth 10 dollars.
  • No, it’s barely even worth $5. However, If you like laggy servers, wish to see how well other players use hacks from while Microsoft ignores video blithely ignores video evidence, and EA would rather take action against abbreviated profanity than test their patches don’t break critical parts of the game then the game’s worth any price. TL;DR: The game’s got more bugs and holes than a dockside whorehouse. One that would be free to offset customer cost of antibiotics.
  • I don't think Battlefront II will ever get out from under their initial woes if every single article about it spends time focusing on the negative reception initially.
