Fight as Ewoks on Wednesday’s Night on Endor update

by Charlie Fripp

Fans of Star Wars Battlefront II can look forward to the Night on Endor update, which is due to roll out on Wednesday.

The limited-time mode will unlock special appearances through the use of Crystals and/or in-game Credits.

“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,” a press release detailed.

It also explained that in Ewok Hunt, players will begin the round 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.”

As for the Crystals, those will return to Star Wars Battlefront II to unlock Appearances, including Endor Leia and Endor Han.

If you so choose, you can also fork out real-world cash to purchase Crystals, which are only redeemable for Appearances.

“Credits are earned through in-game activity and can be redeemed for Appearances, as well. Over 50 additional Appearances to personalize your units will be made available in this update,” the press release concluded.
