A new update is coming to Star Wars Battlefront 2 and brings with it Ewok Hunt, which is the latest limited-time mode to make its way to Star Wars Battlefront 2.
The new update, titled ‘Night on Endor’ arrives on April 18th. This same date will also commence the new limited-time game mode. This means that for the first time in Star Wars Battlefront 2, you will be able to play as an Ewok. For those of you that are old enough to remember, Ewok’s haven’t been playable in the Battlefront series since the OG Battlefront. Naturally, this new mode takes place on the forest moon of Endor.
The ambush begins as the Ewok attacks the unsuspecting stormtroopers, using spears, Wisties, and whatever abilities they can muster to take down the intruders. Each defeated stormtrooper spawns as another Ewok, multiplying until the Empire’s forces have been completely eliminated, and the Ewok celebration can begin. Imperial forces will need all their training to survive until their evacuation arrives. Do so, and they’ll make it off of Endor and claim the win.
The new ‘Night on Endor’ update also brings with it a number of additions in appearances. For heroes, the following will be added to the game:
• Wounded Chewbacca, with Arm Patch
• Scarred Kylo Ren, Patch over Scar
• Administrator Lando, Bespin
• Commander Iden, no Helmet
• Hooded Yoda, pulled up Hood
• Endor Leia
• Endor Han
• Ahch-To Rey
Heroes aren’t the only ones getting some new Appearances, as Troopers are also going to be receiving some brand-new looks. We know this is something that many of you have been asking for, so we can’t wait to see them in action across the galaxy. In total there are 40 new Trooper Appearances, including new Officer Appearances for both the First Order and The Empire. Rebels will be receiving appearances across all Trooper classes, including the Heavy Quarren Rebel and the Twi’lek Specialist. Heavy Zabrak and a Duros Officer are just two of those that you’ll have available when playing as the Resistance.
Lastly, Crystals will return to Star Wars Battlefront II as one of the ways for fans to unlock Appearances, including Endor Leia and Endor Han. Real-world currency can only be used to purchase Crystals, which are only redeemable for Appearances. Credits are earned through in-game activity and can be redeemed for Appearances, as well.
