This is indeed disappointing for many players around the globe who doesn’t have a good Internet connection. The reasoning behind this move is still unknown. However, the good news is that the game will not have any loot-boxes. Instead of the luck based nature of loot-boxes, EA now prefers to let players to have the cosmetic item they want. Also, the game will not support any kind of pay-to-win services. After the big controversial Star Wars: Battlefront 2 incident, I think EA made a good choice.
Last but not least, we have a new gameplay trailer in which developers explain many things about the game itself. Enjoy it fellas and stay tuned for more E3 news.
