EA and DICE are adding more microtransactions into Star Wars Battlefront 2. The Crystals will make a return in an update that will release next week. Star Wars Battlefront 2 players will take on the role of both Ewoks and Stormtroopers in the new Ewok Hunt mode, part of the Night on Endor update.
Along with the update, more appearances have been added to Star Wars Battlefront 2, with more customization options being added over time. These new options can be bought directly with Crystals or earned via in-game Credit rewards.
Limited Time mode Night on Endor and the patch will release on April 18 alongside a bunch of bug fixes and other improvements. Here’s the official description of the new mode:
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 Ewok Hunt, you start as an Ewok or in a group of stormtroopers. The ambush begins as Ewoks attack unsuspecting stormtroopers, using spears, Wisties, and other skills to take down their opponents. Each stormtrooper defeated spawns as another Ewok, multiplying until the Empire’s forces have been completely eliminated, and the Ewok celebration can begin. However, the stormtroopers’ superior training and firepower are more than a match for the Ewoks. Armed with a cadre of weapons as well as flashlights to pierce the darkness, players must hold back the Ewok’s ambush if they have a hope of surviving until an extraction team can arrive.
