Eine Woche hat es gedauert, nun sind sie endlich da: Die detaillierten Patchnotes für das Update auf die Version 1.03, das der Entwickler DICE am 1. Dezember 2015 für Star Wars: Battlefront veröffentlicht hat. Die zum Zeitpunkt des Patch-Releases bereitgestellten Patchnotizen waren lediglich eine allgemein gehaltene, grobe Übersicht - was von vielen Spielern als mangelnde Transparenz kritisiert wurde.
Einige der Balancing-Änderungen waren jedoch offensichtlich: So wurden unter anderem Explosionsschaden reduziert und ein Seitenwechsel nach jedem Match eingeführt. Außerdem gibt es nun vor jeder Partie eine Wartephase direkt auf der jeweiligen Map, wodurch wohl insbesondere die Emote-Benutzung im Spiel inflationär steigen dürfte.
Die weiteren Änderungen offenbaren nun die offiziellen Patchnotes.
So wurde etwa der Explosivschussschaden um 50 Prozent reduziert. Und auch die Aufschalt-Reichweite des Zielschusses wurde angepasst - von ursprünglich 200 auf den neuen Wert 160.
