There is no doubt that the “Star Wars: Battlefront 2” giveaway is very popular.
Last Friday, EA started a week-long giveaway event in the Epic Games Store.As revealed the previous week, this week’s new giveaway is Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Celebration edition.
“Battlefield 2” is a very compelling game, and more importantly, it is a multiplayer online cooperative game. Unfortunately, those who started early encountered some problems when the server was hit hard.
On Friday nights and weekends for a few hours, EA’s servers were running at full capacity, resulting in Battlefront 2 errors 623, 721, and 918. Although Battlefront 2 does have single player games and some offline content, it is mostly multiplayer games.
Hey #StarWarsBattlefrontII Players, update quickly for you! We are still increasing the ability to allow more players to enter, and we want to thank you for your patience so far. Once there are further updates, we will definitely notify you!

If you want to make any progress, you need to connect to EA’s server. All players obviously need a stable connection to enjoy cooperative games or multiplayer games, but this is difficult to achieve when seemingly millions of users try to log in and play games at the same time.
EA did not disclose how many new players or returning players “Battlefront 2” attracted at the time, but the publisher had to increase server capacity twice on Friday to keep up with the growth in demand.
Most of these problems were eliminated during the weekend, but when I played with some friends, I still encountered some interpersonal problems. However, this is a good question for EA.
The game will last until Thursday, so be sure to catch it.
