Blast Ewoks in the Star Wars Battlefront II Night on Endor Update

Microtransactions are set to return to Star Wars Battlefront 2 Star Wars Battlefront 2 'Night on Endor' Update Lets You Play as Ewoks

Real-world currency can only be used to purchase Crystals, which are only redeemable for Appearances (learn more about Crystals in our FAQ). This will be the first ever time that you can play as the lovable Ewoks in the game. Loot boxes eventually returned, though could only be unlocked by playing the game rather than handing over real money, and no longer hand out Star Cards which could make your character stronger. This mode will pit Ewoks against stormtroopers, and players will have the chance to play either as an Ewok defending its village on the forest moon of Endor, or as a stormtrooper being ambushed by spear-wielding fluffs. Every Stormtrooper that is killed spawns a new Ewok.

But enough of the introductions, we've got a lot to talk about so let's dive straight in. Over 50 additional Appearances to personalize your units and heroes will be made available in this update.

That's now scheduled to start in May, which is also when the new Han Solo movie is released -so it's not too hard to imagine what the theme might be for the first few updates. As many of you have suspected, all our focus was on the Progression Update, as we felt this was the most important improvement to the game that we needed to make.
