Star Wars Battlefront 2 Night on Endor Update detailed, releases on April 18th, brings back micro-transactions

Microtransactions are set to return to Star Wars Battlefront 2

A new game mode coming to Star Wars Battlefront 2 will let players relive the battle between the Ewoks and Imperial stormtroopers on the forest moon of Endor from Return of the Jedi. If the Empires forces have been completely eliminated, the Ewoks win and their celebration can begin.

Star Wars Battlefront II had the makings of an epic comeback following the disappointing response from many fans with its predecessor.

Crystals are also making their way back into the game after the controversy surrounding Star Wars and microtransactions. To help balance the advantage of weaponry out, a new Ewok will spawn every time a Stormtrooper dies, so if you're not careful, the match could very well end up with many Ewoks hunting down a few remaining Stormtroopers.

Raw footage of USA strikes on Syria pours in on social media
The combined American, British and French response to these atrocities will integrate all instruments of our national power. President Trump's order to strike Syria Friday night was as predictable as his Saturday morning tweet storms.

Ewoks will be using weapons like spears and Wisties, but Stormtroopers will obviously have an edge with their blasters and flashlights.

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". EA backtracking on their approach to cosmetic microtransactions is somewhat amusing to witness now, especially considering how they had mistakenly assumed we wouldn't want a pink Darth Vader cosmetic skin. Are you team Ewok or team Stormtrooper?

Players who don't want to purchase these items by spending real-world money on Crystals can still purchase the items using in-game credits. The new update will bring with it 50 additional Appearances to personalize your units with as well. Seasons will revolve around specific themes; the studio hasn't revealed what Season Two's theme will be, but focusing on the upcoming Solo film is a possibility. Night on Endor will also feature a balancing update and bug fixes.
