EA and DICE have detailed the changes being made to Star Wars: Battlefront II's progression system after the games virtual currency raised some eyebrows when the game launched last year. Progression is now linear, meaning that star cards and all gameplay-impacting items are now earned as set rewards for leveling up. Experience points are doled out for characters, classes, and ships that give you skill points at level ups to unlock or upgrade star cards. Loot boxes in the Battlefront II no longer contain star cards at all and can only be earned through daily login bonuses, milestones, and timed challenges. Cosmetic items like emotes and victory poses can still be gotten through crates, but anything gameplay-related is off the table. Starting next month cosmetic outfits can be purchased through in-game credits or the virtual currency crystals. The outfits are for both the troopers and the heroes. The new progression system launches March 21.
