EA and DICE will continue to be under a microscope with each new update to Star Wars: Battlefront 2, having to gradually work their way back into the green after a suspect launch. The latest update, patch 1.1, delivers a fresh new Blast map on the planet Crait and also adds Iden Versia's TIE Fighter to the Starfighter Assault ship roster.

Pre and post-launch for Star Wars: Battlefront II has been quite the rollercoaster ride. Loot crate reveals begged the question "Is this game pay to win"?. The answer turned out to be a resounding yes and the developers and producers have scrambled to get things back in order ever since, even needing to cut the price of the unlockable heroes because of other seemingly nefarious practices put in place to extend the life of the game. Additional updates put into place for patch 1.1 are the results of fan feedback and/or bug reports and the development team has more in store. If you're one of the many still playing Battlefront II, keep the feedback going so you can help to build a better place to play.
