The price and state of Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot crates at launch


The 10-hour Star Wars Battlefront 2 trial is now live for EA Access on Xbox One and Origin Access on PC. This is the full version of the game, meaning we can use it to see how loot crates work at launch. The only restricted content is single-player, where three levels are available to play.

The 10-hour trial reveals the buyable currency in Star Wars Battlefront 2 as Crystals, which can be bought in bundles:

  • 500 Crystals for £3.99/$4.99
  • 1000 for £7.99/$9.99
  • 2100 for £15.99/$19.99
  • 4400 for £31.99/$39.00
  • 120,000 for £79.99/$99.99

Ooh, a discount!

The loot crates vary in price across three types: Trooper, Starfighter and Hero. Each contains one or two Star Cards related to the theme of the crate, plus one other item and then some crafting parts or credits – in-game currency.

Trooper loot crates are the most expensive at 200 Crystals or 4000 credits, then it’s Starfighter crates at 120 Crystals or 2400 credits, and finally Hero crates at 110 Crystals and 2200 credits.

To give an idea of what you get from them, XfactorGaming bought and opened 85 crates. Out of those they picked seven blue-tier/three-point Star Cards (the penultimate tier), 48 green-tier/two-point Star Cards, “countless” grey-tier/one-point Star Cards, as well as 3915 crafting parts and 18,700 credits.
