EA denies accusations that 'Star Wars Battlefront II' loot boxes are a form of gambling
The loot box system in Star Wars Battlefront II does not constitute as gambling, EA said in a statement today. This is in response to many people saying that it is, in fact, gambling by definition.
EA has been under fire for the loot box progression system in Star Wars Battlefront II since it was first revealed. Members of the gaming community have been adamantly against it, saying it encourages players to pay for loot boxes that give players random loot and upgrades to improve their multiplayer load outs.
