Ewok Hunt mode coming to Star Wars Battlefront 2

DICE  Electronic Arts

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.

As well as bringing back microtransactions, the Endor update will also introduce a brand new multiplayer mode called Ewok Hunt. They can also use credits to unlock iconic "Star Wars" characters like Luke Skywalker, but prior to the game's launch the characters were prohibitively expensive. Stormtroopers must hold out until an extraction team arrives, but it's not going to be easy, Even with stormtroopers being armored, equipped with advanced weaponry, and even flashlights, Ewoks can ambush from anywhere with spears, firefly-like creatures known as Wisties, and various other skills. The mode lets players battle for the forest moon as either the cuddly murder bears or stormtroopers.

DICE and Electronic Arts have announced that there are big plans set to take place with Star Wars: Battlefront II.

EA removed crystals a year ago following controversy over "Battlefront II's" microtransaction and loot box systems. Overall, there are more than 50 additional appearances in this update. We have improved the melee combat responsiveness for all melee attacks including things like lightsabers and Phasma's staff attack.

We've heard a lot about the Iden the last couple of weeks and the consensus amongst the Community has been that she was a little overpowered.

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".

"We hear you loud and clear, so we're turning off all in-game purchases", Gabrielson said. "We had the intent that was designed for us to have more people play it over a longer period of time", Söderlund explained.

Ahead of the Endor Update, EA also outlined Battlefront II's overhauled progression system.

We've got more to come.
