Games that are constantly online often have a bumpy ride at launch and Star Wars: Battlefront has proven to be just the same. Instead of sitting back and letting players struggle along EA have released a short list of common errors experienced by players and how to fix them.
On of the more common problems experienced by players is a high level of lag. This can be solved by using different ports on your Xbox. If you have never setup ports before then Xbox offers a handy guide here. Some good ports to use on the Xbox One are these, 53, 88, 500, 3074, 3544, 3659, 4500.
Game installation freezes or does not finish.
- Make sure to give your game plenty of time to install.
- If you continue having problems, install your game and choose not to play the installation Darth Vader minigame when asked to do so, or close the minigame if you’re already playing.
- Allow installation to finish before playing any part of the game.
Xbox One players cannot join servers/matchmake
- We’ve fixed an issue causing problems with matchmaking or joining servers on Xbox One.
- If you’re unable to matchmake or join servers on Xbox One, close your game and check for a game update.
- Once updated, you should be able to join servers normally.
Infinite server loading screen/Stuck at server “joining” screen
- If you get stuck while matchmaking, or encounter an infinite loading screen when connecting to a server, exit your game fully and try joining a game again.
“You are not allowed to access online features” error
- Could be due to playing on an underage, or child, account.
- Make sure you’re playing on an account registered to a user of-age and try again.
Sudden disconnection from, or cannot connect to, server
- Stay connected and logged into Origin to avoid disconnection from servers you’re playing on.
- If you disconnect from a server, make sure you’re still logged into the Origin client.
