Data Miners Found There Is Cosmetic Customisations In Star Wars Battlefront II
Star Wars Battlefront II features no cosmetics customisation, despite the 2014 Battlefront having some minor options available. Battlefront II is not offering cosmetics so that the game will adhere to the canon, claims EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen.
“Darth Vader in white probably doesn’t make sense, versus in black,” he said. “Not to mention you probably don’t want Darth Vader in pink. No offense to pink, but I don’t think that’s right in the canon.”
However, data miners have found that cosmetics were at least considered for inclusion in Battlefront II. These menus are not accessible in the game, but this YouTube video and Imgur album shows that the system is still in the game, just not activated.
This could also mean that character customisation will be added into the game later. But more importantly, it serves as a contradiction to the statement Jorgensen said on why they made the loot boxes contain game-winning cards essential to gameplay. We rather have a pink Darth Vader than a pay-to-win system in those loot boxes, it’s the lesser evil.
