EA Outlines 'Night On Endor' DLC For Star Wars Battlefront 2

DICE  Electronic Arts

One of the cool new features coming is a new mode called "Ewok Hunt". 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. The set-up for the mode sounds like the the Ewoks will be defending their home of Endor in a nighttime ambush of the Stormtroopers that have invaded their land. The ambush begins as the Ewok attacks the unsuspecting stormtroopers, using spears, Wisties, and whatever abilities they can muster to take down the intruders. As each Stormtrooper is defeated they'll spawn as an Ewok until all Stormtroopers have been eliminated. That puts you in the shoes of Ewoks or Stormtroopers, as the latter group tries to survive a night on Endor in a forest surrounded by carnivorous bears.

EA also confirmed that another "season" of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is on the way. Do so, and they'll make it off of Endor and claim the win. EA has announced that, starting on April 18th, Battlefront II players will have the option to play a limited-time mode, and unlock special Appearances via Crystals and/or Credits, in the new "Star Wars Battlefront II Night on Endor".
