Star Wars Battlefront II May Feature Microtransactions

The Star Wars Battlefront II EA Play trailer leaked yesterday disappeared shortly after it was mentioned, as is the way with leaks. Here it is for real, and if it gets yoinked now it's because EA put in a DMCA complaint on themselves. The clips shows off gameplay and some cinematics that look better than some of the CGI from the prequel trilogy. GamesIndustry.biz also has details on how content in the game will be unlocked. Apparently the battlepass that caused controversy in the previous game is not part of the plan here, as all DLC for the game is to be free. But they do note there's a likelihood that the game will be adding microtransactions:
EA also mentioned Star Wars Battlefront II will introduce a new system for unlocking content such as weapons and customisations called Battlepoints. While you will be able to earn this in-game, there will almost certainly be microtransactions that will help the publisher offset the lack of revenue generated by a season pass.

WTF are you guys talking about, Pay-to-Win? They said specifically it's cosmetic items.

And Greed? Did you miss the part of the announcement where they said that all maps, guns, heroes etc. released post-launch are FREE FOR EVERYONE? They're giving the season pass away for free, and that indicates greed. K.

I swear to god, some of you guys just see what you want to see and have no place commenting on objective reality.

You are the one with no grounding in reality if you actually believe what they say at face value. EA/Actiblizz/Ubisoft don't exactly have the best track records when it comes to microtransactions and being honest with their customers.

Lol you obviously drank the Kool-aid.

EA "said" that all DLC for Titanfall 2 would be free. It happened. Now they're saying the same for Battlefront II.

But you're right, they're probably just using the biggest gaming event of the year to announce directly to millions of viewers a BIG FAT LIE. Oh EA, why you so greedy/evil?

Seriously, you guys need to adjust your world-view glasses to let in information that occasionally contradicts your established pre-determined narrative lest you miss everything good and die angry.
