Star Wars Battlefront Receives Balance Patch
John Williamson / 5 years ago
Star Wars Battlefront is possibly one of the most shallow games I’ve ever experienced and suffers from a severe lack of content. While the game’s visuals are awe-inspiring, it’s difficult to look past the unbalanced multiplayer, poor map selection and terrible character customization. This results in one of the most disappointing titles this year and raises questions about EA’s ability to properly honor the Star Wars saga. On the other hand, EA has just released a patch including balance tweaks, enhanced optimization and improved physics. Hopefully, this helps to create a more enjoyable multiplayer experience but I’m not hopeful.
Here is the complete patch notes in full:
General bug fixes for vehicles and physics improvements
Game modes balancing tweaks
HUD UI adjustments
General crash and stability fixes
Online traffic performance improvements
Various text fixes for all languages
General bug fixes for both Missions and Multiplayer
Legacy Controls should now work as intended
There’s no need to manually apply the update as it will automatically install via EA’s Origin client. I’d love to hear feedback on this particular update and if it makes the game more playable. I personally find it a repetitive mess which doesn’t reward good players. Furthermore, EA’s pricing with the digital deluxe edition and season pass leaves a lot to be desired.
