Opening comments Edit
First, thank you all for playing Star Wars Battlefront II.We at the Live Team hope that you are having a blast with our game! Now, let’s talk about the improvements and updates that are coming with this patch (patch 1.03).
As you might have seen, our last patch (patch 1.02) we focused on fixing issues we found during the later stage of game development, as well as addressing critical gameplay and user interface issues.
In the 1.03 patch, we will introduce a redesigned End of Round MVP screen - the screen where we highlight the top players of the round in game. With this redesign, we will highlight players based on their score instead of specific "honors". This means that a larger number of players will have the chance to become highlighted in the End of Round MVP screen.
We have also focused on doing a pass on collision and traversal issues on Jakku, Kashyyyk, and Endor as well as tweaks to the combat areas on Tatooine, Endor, and Hoth for certain game modes. This means that movement are now more fluent and no weird or invisible barriers are stopping your movement.
Additionally, players will no longer get an error message when quitting a game. A detailed list of all the changes can be found in the patch notes below! So, what’s our next steps? We are working hard to improve the game in our upcoming patches and we keep an eye out for the feedback we receive from all of you. In the upcoming patch, one of items we are looking at is balance changes for the Heroes vs. Villains mode. And as always, if you have any feedback or ideas on how to improve the game, please post on our official forum. We want to hear from you! The Star Wars Battlefront II Live Team
