DICE have confirmed that there won’t be any microtransactions in their upcoming shooter, Star Wars Battlefront. In an interview with Gamespot, Battlefront’s design director, Niklas Fegraeus, stated that microtransactions were “not part of the core design” of Star Wars Battlefront.
“The currency system is based on your game performance,” Fegraeus explains. “The credits that you use to buy things in the game are earned. You play the game, complete challenges, and that’s how you get credits. Just doing things in the game earns you points, and those earn you credits.”

“That’s the baseline system; the more you do, the more credits you get. But then there are other systems, such as small challenges for you to complete, and rewards for different actions.”
Star Wars Battlefront is set to be released on November 17th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. DICE has continued to share more information on the game leading up to its release, with four new game modes revealed today. An open beta, featuring three different game modes across three different planets (Hoth, Tatooine and Sullust) is due to go live in just three days.
