If there was ever any doubt before, there sure isnt any now:

Game Design is no longer about making good, fun, and entertaining games. Its pure sales now.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront II Incorporating Beta Feedback

There are many things you can earn in the game, including weapons, attachments, credits, Star Cards, Emotes, Outfits and Victory Poses.
As a balance goal, we’re working towards having the most powerful items in the game only earnable via in-game achievements.
Crates will include a mix of of Star Cards, Outfits, Emotes or Victory Poses.
Players earn crates by completing challenges and other gameplay milestones, or by purchasing them with in-game credits or Crystals, our premium currency.
If you get a duplicate Star Card in a crate, you will get crafting parts which you can then use to help upgrade the Star Card of your choice.
And lastly, you have to earn the right to be able to upgrade Star Cards and unlock most Weapons. You can only upgrade or unlock them if you have reached a high enough rank, which is determined by playing the game.

Seriously... none of these points addresses the issue of the game being Pay 2 Win.

I hope its more than just new levels and characters.

The first game was a lot of fun, but it felt like a Corvette that never went above 45 mph.

They really need to put in the features, functionality and customization that players have been asking for in the current game. Leaving all that out would make the sequel not much more than an over priced DLC.

It could also be that its lacking one of the main selling features of their big name series... Multiplayer Co-op.

Pretty much a let down, even for Dota fans (as expressed in this reaction video)

Valve CAN and SHOULD do better than this.

Typically, companies stick to what they are good at (ie: borderlands)

Not gearbox.

Takes over failed game project - Duke Nukem... game bombs
Takes over failed game project Aliens Col Mariness... game bombs
Tries to jump into the moba and FPS genre at the same time with Battleborn... cant compete with the bigger games and bombs
Having not learned their lesson with Battleborn... they try again with their 1v1 project.

Meanwhile... Borderlands fans are like, "Um, gearbox, we have money, if you want it... just sayin"

Great ARPG, hands down.

The expansion has me super hyped as well.

Between PoE and Grim Dawn, Blizzard should be ashamed at the state of D3's continual growth (ie: stuff they are adding or expanding upon)

Making modes exclusive to either console or pc, is just dumb.

All the PC players who have supported this game so far are basically getting a slap in the face by not getting this game mode.

Ive had my eye on this game for awhile, and a co-op horde mode sounds really fun. Im not a console gamer though, and this marketing move is enough to make me not give the devs my money.

I hope tons of people buy, and then refund on steam, and totally screw up their metrics for sales after this.

Looks pretty dated...

... and no co-op?

Way to progress backwards from their past games.

THe only plans I care to hear from them at this point:

- Fix/Improve ALL facial animations
- Squash many of the blatant, "should have been caught in QA" bugs that exist in the game. Need a bug list? Just look on youtube.

I dont care about DLC of any kind at this point.

I think this is ultimately going to piss off more people than it is going to excite.

From the steam forums, it seems that people are STILL having frame rate stutters in the game. 1080 users claiming they get on average 40-60 fps on medium/high settings, but that the game will still have these points where it just freezes for a second.

Clearly, this twitter engineer has a much higher style of living than is needed, and he is unwilling to give that up.

Time to cut back on the steak dinners, 50 dollar a day bar tabs, 50 dollar a day starbucks tabs, and complete lack of a structured budget plan for luxury items.

If it aint broke, dont fix it.

Should have just focused on Borderlands 3.

Now, if things get shaken up enough, we may never even see that.

Its like the people at Gearbox are ashamed of the game, and wanted to have other things they could say they were proud of instead.

I feel like Single Player DLC would of sold infinitely better. I would of bought it, if it had content and was priced appropriately. I realize that is probably more work though.

Pretty much this ^

Most good reviews of this game were based on how surprisingly good and fun the SINGLE player game was. Most negative reviews were based on how mundane and meh the multi was. Every DLC has been for multi. Just some backwards thinking going on.
