Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is now a video game which, broadly talking, folks like. (If you someway just dropped in from 2017, boy, we have received a whole lot to converse about.) It was recently offered away for cost-free on the Epic Game titles Store, a giveaway which proved so well-liked that the servers fairly a lot went all Demise-Star-at-the-conclusion-of-A-New-Hope, and now we know exactly how lots of people grabbed it.
EA suggests that in excess of 19 million gamers picked up Battlefront 2 as portion of the advertising. Yeah, people like cost-free Computer system game titles and all, but that’s an unquestionably absurd number of gamers to be in for the advertising in just a single week. (For a rough comparison, The Sims 4 has experienced all around 30 million players above its life time.) This is, at the very least, a very reliable notion of how preferred factors other than Fortnite can get on Epic’s launcher.
Regardless of the new attractiveness, EA reaffirms that the video game has presently experienced its “final information drop”. Final 12 months, along with that last update, DICE reported it was transferring on from Battlefront in order to aim on the following Battlefield sport.
EA is even now generating Star War games, but under the new Lucasfilm Games initiative, Disney is increasing its licensing offer to let Ubisoft to make a major, open-planet Star Wars title.
