New Star Wars Battlefront 2 mode will let you play as Ewoks

Microtransactions are set to return to Star Wars Battlefront 2 Star Wars Battlefront 2 'Night on Endor' Update Lets You Play as Ewoks

After removing the microtransactions and refining the progression system Star Wars Battlefront II has become a much better experience. This time, players can use crystals to purchase in-game skins (known as "Appearances"). As part of this months release, Crystals will return to Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II as one of the ways for fans to unlock Appearances, including Endor Leia and Endor Han.

The update will also introduce the first game mode that allows players to play as Ewoks.

After the Night on Endor update though EA are hoping to draw a line under the whole debacle, with all the new content after this being classified as "season two".

The update will also feature a new limited-time multiplayer mode called Ewok Hunt. As the Ewoks kill the stormtroopers, they multiply until the Empire's armies have been wiped out. Don't let their teddy-like appearance fool you, Ewoks are vicious and not at all cuddly and pointless excuses created to appeal to children. Meanwhile, the Stormtrooper players will have to try and win by holding off the Ewoks for a period of time until an extraction team arrives.

Infection-style modes like these are always interesting to play, as they usually culminate in one lone survivor battling against a horde of other player-controlled adversaries in panic-inducing chaos.

'Battlefront 2's Ewok Hunt mode has players looking for furry creatures in the dead of night.

The reintroduction of microtransactions-bought Crystals is potentially dicey, but EA made it clear in the announcement and FAQ that they can only be used to purchase items that don't affect gameplay. These are among the 50 new personalization items that will be available with the new update. As many of you have suspected, all our focus was on the Progression Update, as we felt this was the most important improvement to the game that we needed to make. But enough of the introductions, we've got a lot to talk about so let's dive straight in.
