Community Transmission - Night on Endor - STAR WARS™ BATTLEFRONT™

Microtransactions are set to return to Star Wars Battlefront 2
Players might remember that the original version of Battlefront 2 by Pandemic Studios had a "Hunt" mode, where players could take control of the native species of planets like Endor, Kashyyyk, and Naboo. The limited-time mode that we mentioned before is Ewok Hunt, and it involves clearing out a platoon of Stormtroopers or holding out against an extremely punishing Ewok assault. These are among the 50 new personalization items that will be available with the new update. Crystals are purchased using real money but can only be used to purchase Appearances, aka skins.
The "Battlefront II" controversy, along with similar quarrels between publishers and fans in games like "Destiny 2" and "Middle-Earth: Shadow of War" led to a larger debate about the role of loot boxes in video games.
For more, check out IGN's Star Wars Battlefront II review, which called it a "Star Wars experience that's stunning to look at and wonderfully faithful to the source material, but it stumbles hard on the delivery". "In March we launched the Progression Update, April is Night on Endor and moving forward we're committed to keeping up this cadence of content updates". Ewok Hunt is a limited-time, asymmetric mode that pits a team of Ewoks against a team of Stormtroopers. If the Empires forces have been completely eliminated, the Ewoks win and their celebration can begin. We think we know which side we'd rather be on.
No word yet on whether these Ewoks will try to eat the stormtroopers, too. "And like a lot of other games on the market, to be able to afford to do that we had an idea of getting returns from that". Credits are earned through in-game activity and can be redeemed for Appearances, as well.
"Seasons will focus around a specific theme (such as a new Star Wars film, or an anniversary in the Star Wars Universe) and will usually span multiple months". Star Wars Battlefront II would provide free DLC as to not separate its playerbase.
