STAR WARS Battlefront II

This is a third-person and first-person shooter. The action of the game takes place between the movies Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. You will play as many characters and shoot hundreds of enemies, whether in the one-player story mode, or in online multiplayer. It is possible to improve the skills of each of the characters with many cards. These cards can be obtained by playing for long hours. The game is very faithful to the movies, and many environments take up the best moments of them.

If the game has a bad reputation with gamers because of these beginnings where you could buy lootboxes to improve your characters with real money, the game has been corrected since the criticisms came out in large numbers. So there are no more microtransactions.
