Star Wars Battlefront II has been witnessing a rise in its player count ever since it was made available for free on the Epic Games Store. Players have been reporting a number of issues that prevent them from playing the game online. Two of the most common error codes players are facing are error codes 623 and 918. If you are facing any of the errors, here is all you need to know about it.
What are error codes 623 and 918?
The reason for the errors is the sudden influx of a large number of players, which has been straining the game’s servers. While the error code 623 simply reads that the server is down because of heavy traffic, error code 918 states that the “EA Account is restricted.” This has made some players think that their account has been banned, which EA usually does when players use certain mods.
However, just like error code 623, error code 918 is also occurring due to the server strain. EA also issued a statement confirming the same, and it has assured players that the developers are working on scaling up the servers. While EA has not given a time frame by which we can expect the issue to be resolved, this can take a bit of time since quite a large number of players are playing the game right now.
How to fix error codes 623 and 918
Right now, the only fix is to restart the game and try signing in again until you are able to login. You can also keep an eye on the Twitter handle of EA Help to stay updated about the game’s server status and other relevant stuff.
Star Wars Battlefront II’s player base had dwindled before it was made available for free, with EA even moving away from delivering more content updates back in April 2020. As of now, there is no information about the next Star Wars game from EA, although it still has the Star Wars license till 2023. On the other hand, Ubisoft had announced that it is collaborating with Lucasfilm Games on a new open-world game, set in the Star Wars universe. Until the next Star Wars game is released, it is a great time to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront II.
