Star Wars Battlefront 2 Hands Out Double Experience Points

EA DICE is giving away extra XP to all Battlefront 2 players for the next two weeks.


Developer EA DICE has doubled the number of experience points offered in Star Wars Battlefront II on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One until March 27. According to a tweet by the company's global community lead, DICE will then start giving Battlefront II players triple the experience points for the weekend of March 28-29.

This news comes as a bunch of companies issue responses and countermeasures to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Many reports suggest self-quarantining for 14 days to minimize possible infections.

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has cancelled E3 2020 in light of the coronavirus and begun considering digital alternatives. Other companies--including Ubisoft, Square Enix, and Xbox--are also exploring other options to deliver news. Here's how companies are responding to E3 2020's cancellation.

Despite its cancellation this year, E3 will return in 2021 as "a reimagined event that brings fans, media and the industry together in a showcase that celebrates the global video game industry," according to the ESA.

Battlefront II recently received a free major expansion in the form of the Age of Rebellion, an update that adds new playable characters, additional co-op locations, extra maps and weapons, and more. EA DICE also dropped a small patch that addresses a few bugs and implements some community-requested features.
