1. Create a new Xbox One Profile
If it’s possible for you to create a new Xbox One Profile to only play the EA Star Wars Battlefront 2 video game then we’ll recommend you to do that. This is one of the most common issues for Xbox One users. Keep in mind that EA doesn’t allow players to get into the online multiplayer mode for the under 13 years of age. So, don’t get confused with EA and Xbox policy. Therefore, we can assume that Xbox support may not completely help you out of this situation.
So, creating a new Xbox One profile with an 18 years old age or higher will be recommended for playing EA games completely. Make sure that we don’t encourage such things to Non-Adult players whatsoever. But if you’re an adult person then it’s okay to create a new one.
- Go to your Xbox home screen or dashboard.
- Make sure to log out from your existing profile (if any).
- Select the bar in the top-left corner > Choose Add New from the Sign in! interface.
- Now, input a valid email address > Enter a valid birthday date which should be at least 18 years old or above.
- Follow the on-screen instructions and complete the profile creation process.
- Once you’re signed in to your new Xbox One profile successfully, you’re good to go.
- Just launch the Star Wars Battlefront 2 game and check for the error code 524 whether it’s appearing or not.
But if you already have plenty of saved games on your existing account and you’re not interested to shift into a new account or you’re a PC gamer, then follow the next method.

- Now, create a support ticket for your problem.
- A support agent will be with you in a short time over a live chat and ask for help.
