Star Wars Battlefront II Is Bringing Back Re-Designed Microtransactions

DICE  Electronic Arts

Real-world currency can only be used to purchase Crystals, which are only redeemable for Appearances. This will be the first ever time that you can play as the lovable Ewoks in the game.

The new mode is called "Ewok Hunt Mode" and it's going to pit the Ewoks against Imperials.

The ambush begins as Ewoks attack unsuspecting stormtroopers, using spears, Wisties, and other skills to take down their opponents.

Nevertheless, EA has announced today that with the upcoming update there will be more than 50 new appearances, including new Endor-themed looks for Han Solo and Leia Organa. Once the battle begins, players start as either a stormtrooper or an Ewok, with the stormtroopers defending themselves from an Ewok ambush.

Gamers originally asked EA and DICE about the Hunt Mode back when Star Wars: Battlefront II was still in development but EA denied that the mode would be available during launch, much like how cosmetic options for the characters weren't present during launch.

For the first time in Star Wars Battlefront II, you will be able to play as Ewoks. Some Crystals will also be rewarded when hitting in-game milestones.

The Endor update to Star Wars Battlefront 2 will go live on April 18.

Not only will the new game mode be added, but there will also be new Endor-themed cosmetic items added for certain heroes. "We'll continue to improve the game, we'll continue to push on these things, and we'll have to be very cautious with what this means for future products".

The update is scheduled to come out next Wednesday on April 18th. Frankly, Ewok Hunt sounds like a whole lot of fun and we can't wait to try it out.

"We hear you loud and clear, so we're turning off all in-game purchases", Gabrielson said.

We can confirm that Season Two will be coming in May, and you'll get more details a little closer to the time. People seem to appreciate what we've done, players are coming back, and we're seeing stronger engagement numbers.
