This is one of a number of new patches being rolled out this week, with this one handling end-of-round payout, Credits and Daily Login Crates.
Here’s what changed, according to DICE: “The end-of-round payout has been increased. This is an area we agree needed to be buffed a bit, especially when it comes to rewarding players for doing well in-game. We’re upping the number of Credits you get for a match across the board, and specifically bumping the top players on each team by even more.
“Earn 3X more Credits daily in Arcade Mode. It’s been made clear that you were hitting the Arcade Mode Credit cap faster than we expected, so we wanted to alleviate that by increasing it to 1500 Credits.
“While we’re still looking into ways to add more content into it the mode in the long-term, we think that this should help in the near-term for those who want rewards for completing the different scenarios.
“Daily Login Crates will now provide more crafting parts than before. You’ll notice the change right away when you log in.
“Crafting the Star Cards you want will help make sure you’re progressing in the direction you want, and we absolutely want to empower that. This should help you get where you want to go faster when it comes to crafting and upgrading.”
As noted above, a second Star Wars Battlefront 2 update is being launched this week, which will add the first Factional Challenges to the game.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 The Last Jedi Season begins tomorrow, allowing players to choose between The First Order or The Resistance.
Helping one side will earn rewards for players, such as new heroes, maps, and vehicles, while EA have also confirmed that new single-player content will be released as well.
Here’s some of the new things coming to the game, with The Last Jedi Season: “Stormtrooper-turned-hero Finn joins the fight for the Resistance and Captain Phasma steps on to the battlefront for the First Order.
“New locations and vehicles will also arrive: you can fight on the ground on the salt-covered planet of Crait in Galactic Assault mode, or take to space in the Starfighter Assault map of D’Qar (flying Tallie Lintra’s RZ-2 A-wing, a vehicle you’ll be seeing in the film).
“And, of course, Iden Versio returns in Star Wars Battlefront II Resurrection during the days of the First Order’s rise to power.
“These new chapters of Star Wars Battlefront II’s single-player story mode will be available December 13.
“Thank you again for your passion around this game. Star Wars is special to all of us, and we all want to experience that world in fun, exciting ways.
“If you’re already playing the game and are loving it, we want to thank you for taking the time to do so. We have a lot planned, and are excited to show you what’s to come.”
