Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection gets first patch following troubled launch

Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection did not have a good debut. On its release, players were met with a myriad of bugs and limited servers for each platform, resulting in many asking for a refund. The collection currently sits with an “Overwhelmingly Negative” review average on Steam.

Aspyr acknowledged the poor launch state soon after the collection was released, stating it had “experienced critical errors”, and would work to address the many issues. Now, it is starting to make good on that promise, with the first major patch for its Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection.

This patch aims to address a multitude of issues across multiplayer, audio and visuals, many of which really should have been ready at launch. It is available now for those on Steam, with Aspyr saying it is still in the submission and certification process for PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo consoles.
