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

Microtransactions are set to return to Star Wars Battlefront 2

Microtransactions are set to return to Star Wars Battlefront 2

If you're curious about the name, it seems to have come down to a new game mode called Ewok Hunt.

"The ambush begins as the Ewok attacks the unsuspecting stormtroopers, using spears, Wisties, and whatever abilities they can muster to take down the intruders", says EA. When someone playing one of the Empire's foot soldiers dies, they rejoin the game as an Ewok, whittling down the survivors until they're all eliminated or they last long enough to be extracted. Crystals must be purchased with real money, but EA emphasized that they can only be used to directly acquire "Appearances" for playable characters, which are also accessible via credits earned through gameplay.

The update will also unlock special Appearances available to buy using Crystals (bought with real-world currency) and/or in-game Credits, including Endor Leia and Endor Han Solo.

The new Battlefront 2 mode Ewok Hunt will be coming out on April 18, so you can start racking up pelts (or stormtrooper helmets) in another week's time.

"Whether you begin as an Ewok defending your homeland and stalking your Imperial enemy, or as a stormtrooper fighting to escape the ambush, players can fight through the night for control of Endor in the all-new Ewok Hunt mode".


In total, more than 50 additional Appearances will be included in the update, such as Wounded Chewbacca with an arm patch, Scarred Kylo Ren, Administrator Lando, Hooded Yoda, and Ahch-To Rey, as well as forty new Trooper Appearances.

We have loads more content in the pipeline, too.

Remember that there's a new Challenge every day and a bonus one over each weekend.

"Seasons will focus around a specific theme (such as a new Star Wars film, or an anniversary in the Star Wars Universe) and will usually span multiple months". You can read about the official details posted down below. We're aiming for the first look at this to go live at the same time as Season Two arrives. We think we know which side we'd rather be on.
