Star Wars Battlefront II developer DICE has apologized for the shooter’s recent technical issues by way of an in-game Crate full of goodies.
Players have recently reported issues with claiming rewards after completing the game’s Challenges and Milestones. According to a post on Reddit, a free Crate accompanied the recent patch meant to address the issues. The Crate, appropriately titled Fixes Deployed, attempts to make amends with the community by offering 4,000 credits and four randomized Star Cards to all players.

Battlefront II‘s Crates were originally intended to be partially monetized, but the feature was so unpopular that the real-money currency was removed from the game before launch. To that end, there is something a little ironic about DICE using them to apologize for technical issues, with many gamers making jokes in the image’s Reddit thread about the fixes being randomly awarded to players from the box.
Despite players’ wishes for microtransactions to stay removed from the experience, EA recently announced that they would be returned in the next few months. The publisher has yet to announce what changes are coming to the system to make it more player-friendly.
In more optimistic Battlefront II news, DICE recently detailed the game’s next major update, which will include the Jetpack Cargo limited-time mode, along with a selection of balance changes and more. There is also hope on the horizon for the return of the classic Conquest mode, based on recent comments by the game’s design director.
