Update: As pointed out by PCGamesN, it appears the refund button is disabled for all pre-orders on EA’s Origin store – not just for Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

While EA does indeed offer refunds for up to seven days after a pre-ordered game launches, the refund button only appears once the game is out. This means that anybody who wants to cancel their pre-order will have to go through the customer support chat by default.

Or alternatively, wait for the refund button to show up once Battlefront 2 launches officially on November 17.

i guess fact checking is hard.

Gamers are generally salty and curse each other, but when developers decides to monetise one of our all time favourite title, we come together united as one voice

I'll be gloating when SG PC gamers log onto the game come Friday. Mark my words, the complaints and moaning will be flooding in before the month has ended.

I thought this trend has been around since BF2142?

Star Wars Battlefront 2 ditches real-money currency hours before launch

Star Wars Battlefront 2 won’t offer paid microtransactions in-game when it launches. Electronic Arts confirmed in a blog post that it will remove “all in-game purchases” for the time being, following a week of furious criticism regarding Battlefront 2’s economy and progression system.

EA will bring microtransactions back later.

Anyway SEA players always get high ping servers and no proper anti-cheat mechanism. See both BF1 for history.

So still your choice to make the purchase but I know personally I won't step into that pit along with 20+ other players.

It's all a psychological manipulation by EA to distract us all. Never believe Evil Always.

lol. 'temporarily'.

they are aiming for 'whales' to spend on micro transaction and lootboxes. those rich ppl will spend hundred or even thousands for that. but the whales wont be interested if most of the peasant decided not to buy the game thus resulting in reduced player.

so, probably their tactic now is to get everyone buy the game...after few weeks, restore micro transaction, whale spend on it, go in game and show superiority and kill all the peasants.

just assumption i read on reddit
