Star Wars Battlefront 2's loot boxes feature stat altering Star Cards


"Star Wars: Battlefront 2" won't be out until November 17, but it looks like some fans will be able to play the game's alpha soon.

It appears that the testing has no current end date penciled in and is only on the PC platform.

Multiple members of NeoGaf have reported that they're receiving emails containing codes for the alpha and that it begins on the 29th of this month. The alpha period apparently starts today.

You may want to check out your email inboxes because EA is in the middle of sending out closed alpha invites to some people to test an early playable build of Star Wars Battlefront 2. The alpha version of the upcoming sci-fi shooter is said to have a file size of 7.3GB for the PC.

The alpha test was apparently mentioned in a post by EA community manager Mat Everett on the game's official forums last week.

The main way to get crates is with Credits which are awarded with most of the gameplay, but a real money option will also likely be available.

We've known since before E3 that Star Wars: Battlefront 2 was going to get a multiplayer beta prior to its launch. Gamers will be able to progress through the game by buying crates with in-game credits. The quality of the Star Cards varies based on the rarity of the crate that it came from.

There also seems to be crates given away for simply logging into the game, as the Alpha contained a free loot box for doing just that.

Those crafting components are used to upgrade Star Cards that you already own, though you can only take them up to "Epic".
