"Ewok Hunt" allows you to start off as either an Ewok or a stormtrooper, with your objective playing out differently depending on what side of the battle you're on. The ambush begins as the Ewok attacks the unsuspecting stormtroopers, using spears, Wisties, and whatever abilities they can muster to take down the intruders. If the Empires forces have been completely eliminated, the Ewoks win and their celebration can begin.
The bad news is EA has just confirmed that real-money spending is coming back, with the return of the premium crystal currency. Credits are earned through in-game activity and can be redeemed toward Appearances, as well. The Battlefront II team has added 50 more of the cosmetic options to the game with this update, including Han and Leia in their Endor outfits as well as The Last Jedi costumes for Rey and Kylo (no, not shirtless).
Electronic Arts announced today that Star Wars Battlefront II is getting a new mode: Ewok Hunt, in which you play as Endor's furry occupants and stalk Imperial invaders in the cover of night - or try to survive as a stormtrooper, fending off menacing Ewoks until evac arrives. This new update introduces a limited time mode. Thankfully, Crystals can now only be spent on cosmetic "Appearances" - they can no longer be used to get weapons or Star Cards.
EA is continuing to dish out new free DLC for Star Wars Battlefront 2. Seasons will revolve around specific themes; the studio hasn't revealed what Season Two's theme will be, but focusing on the upcoming Solo film is a possibility.
