Star Wars Battlefront II Sells Over 800K in Debut at Retail, New The Last Jedi Challenges Are Up

Just a few days ago, we posted the Star Wars Battlefront II The Last Jedi season challenges. Well, it looks like there’s a bunch of new ones up right now. Thankfully, the new one is super easy and just consists of defeating 75 enemies using any class.

Speaking of The Last Jedi, check out the season trailer right here to see Finn and Captain Phasma in action. There’s also talk of microtransactions not coming back at all to Battlefront II, which should make a ton of people very happy.

In other Battlefront II news, the game has reportedly sold 882,000 units at retail in its first two weeks of availability according to the NPD Group. This sales figure doesn’t count digital downloads and is only applicable for US sales. For reference, 2015’s Battlefront sold 1.8 million copies at retail in its launch month.

This is a massive drop off in sales, which no doubt have been affected by the negative word of mouth surrounding loot boxes and microtransactions.

Are you surprised at all in Battlefront II’s initial sales numbers or did you expect it given the negative reaction to the game and how EA tried to force in microtransactions?
