Ewoks vs Stormtroopers in new Battlefront II mode, Ewok Hunt

In Ewok Hunt, you start as an Ewok or in a group of stormtroopers. 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.

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. As the Ewoks kill the stormtroopers, they multiply until the Empire's armies have been wiped out. Well, EA apparently means it with its announcement that while it'll be bringing microtransactions back to Star Wars Battlefront 2, they'll be for cosmetic items only.

How Battlefront II managed to have a story level set on Endor, where you were specifically playing as a baddie, and not have them shoot any ewoks is baffling, but it looks like EA are about to address that oversight.

The update goes live on April 18 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and includes various other tweaks and balance fixes. To survive, stormtroopers need to hold out long enough to be rescued by an extraction team.

For the first time in Star Wars Battlefront II, you will be able to play as Ewoks. A Q&A near the end of the community update teases Clone Wars content coming to Battlefront II eventually, but whether that will be part of one of the monthly content drops or larger seasons remains to be seen. The first is in the same style as the Night on Endor Update that we're releasing on April 18th, and the second is Seasons. Over 50 additional Appearances to personalize your units will be made available in this update. "Credits are earned through in-game activity and can be redeemed for Appearances, as well". 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.

We can confirm that Season Two will be coming in May, and you'll get more details a little closer to the time.
