The northeast is largely apathetic too, save for New York, Delaware, and New Hampshire. Things are different in the Midwest and West, where many of the Twitter reactions are decidedly negative. Out of all the Western states, only Montana and New Mexico are fine with Battlefront II‘s DLC.This past week hasn’t been great for the upcoming Star Wars title. A recent Reddit thread from EA meant to explain some of the game’s most criticized aspects backfired big-time; leading EA to slash the price of in-game heroes by 75%.
