It is the fourth major installment in the “Star Wars: Battlefront” series and was released in November 2017. The game is available on various platforms, including PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. The game faced considerable controversy upon its initial release due to concerns related to microtransactions, loot boxes, and the progression system. Players were critical of the game’s perceived pay-to-win mechanics and the time it took to unlock certain characters and upgrades.
