Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection Used A Mod Without Creator’s Permission

The creator was seemingly not mentioned in credits.

Story Highlights

  • The Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection dev Aspyr has allegedly used a modder’s work without permission.
  • The modder, Iamashaymin, recently appeared in an interview to address concerns surrounding the new release.
  • The collection has launched to negative reviews on Steam due to a slew of bugs and networking errors.

The Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection studio Aspyr has recently been accused by the modder, Iamashaymin, of using their work without permission. Initially, one of the creator’s mods was discovered to be in the trailer for the game, resulting in the devs issuing a statement. However, the veteran Battlefront modder took to Twitter to address concerns after his work was still spotted in the final release without any credit.

On Reddit, some sharp-eyed players noticed that the PS5 version of the game featured Asajj Ventress from Iamashaymin’s mod before the character was replaced by another design created by the devs in a new patch. 

This release has been a total mess. The fact they had to release patches both before and immediately after releasing two decade old games really says it all. Especially considering part of the patches is rumoured to have removed content they had already said was removed months ago,” said Iamashaymin in a statement to IGN.

Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection’s Release Is A Critical Disaster

High expectations were riding on the awaited collection, but it was chock-full of bugs and server issues after release. While the essence of the original games is there, a myriad of glitches make it difficult to be a worthwhile experience at the moment. Therefore, the current rating on Steam alone is sitting at “overwhelmingly negative.” However, the devs have confirmed that they’re working to resolve all the issues.
