Why are they giving away this game?
Battlefront II is big AAA title game and what could be the possible reason to give it for free?
So the game was kind of dying even the multiplayer part of the game had very less player as compared to before, this happened because they announced that they won’t be updating the game, after the skywalker saga ended with the last movie Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker.
Well why did they do that?
If you think from a business perspective, if the kept updating the game with future Star Wars project they won’t be making good amount of money except some microtransactions which won’t be enough for them. So they stopped updating the game and hence the number of players just started falling
One BIG Issue..
So, the story part of the game is just amazing, if you’re a Star Wars person you are definitely going to love it. but there is some slight issue with the multiplayer side of the game. If you live in Europe, some American countries then you’re not gonna face any issues. but in the Middle -East, Asian region there are no Servers there, not even in Singapore. They may make one Asian server considering a boost in a number of players after the game goes free because there used to be one before they stopped it.
