Rumor: EA Paying Celebrities To Give Positive Reviews For Star Wars Battlefront

by Damian Seeto

According to an Instagram post from Breaking Benjamin’s Ben Burnley, EA is paying off some famous stars to say positive things about Star Wars Battlefront.

As noted by GearSiege, the Breaking Benjamin singer said some interesting and disparaging things about Star Wars Battlefront on his Instagram account. Warning some foul language is used.

He posted: “They wanted to pay me to post that I like this piece of shit game .. They can shove it up their ass this game sucks I’d rather watch the god awful prequels then play this piece of shit one more second that’s for ruining Star Wars EA :)

He even posted the picture you see above. It sounds like EA gave him a free copy of Star Wars Battlefront to promote it to the many Breaking Benjamin fans out there. Instead, he told his true feeling about the game. He probably only played it for a few hours and decided to literally break the disc.

The main issue people have with the game is the lack of content. The graphics and gameplay are good, but the longevity is missing. Not to mention people are kind of annoyed that EA is already advertising a $50 Season Pass. It will be interesting if other stars come out and feel the same way…
