Star Wars: Battlefront II achieves unprecedented numbers

Star Wars: Battlefront II achieves unprecedented numbers

Even though Star Wars: Battlefront II struggled a bit in its beginnings due to the big controversy related to lootboxes, the game managed to convince quite a lot of players by offering players to take part in massive battles in the Star Wars universe. It took DICE and Criterion Games quite a bit of time to finish released all the content they have planned for the game but Star Wars: Battlefront II had a very stable base of players long before that. What nobody probably anticipated is that thanks to an Epic Games Store giveaway the game would become more popular than ever. 

Star Wars: Battlefront II could be claimed for free on Epic Games Store for just a week, but it's been more than enough time to massively increase the number of players in the game, reaching numbers that nobody expected. According to Electronic Arts, more than 19 million players got Star Wars: Battlefront II Celebration Edition during the promotion. 



The massive influx of players suddenly coming into Star Wars: Battlefront II has caused some problems with the servers, which are struggling to keep up with the demand even today. The good news is that you do not need to connect to the server to enjoy the single-player content so you can give it a try anytime and have a lot of fun by playing Star Wars: Battlefront II.

Now that EA has lost the exclusive rights for Star Wars videogames we are bound to see the release of a wider variety of titles based on the famous sci-fi universe. It wouldn't be inaccurate to say that this is probably the last opportunity of joining such a huge amount of Star Wars fans in a multiplayer video game, but it will depend on the popularity of the ones coming in the future.
