A new game mode for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is in the works by Electronic Arts to allow players to relive the battle between the Ewoks and Imperial stormtroopers on the forest moon of Endor.The new playable mode is called Ewok Hunt and allows players to battle each other either as an Ewok defending their village or a member of the Empire trying to survive an ambush.
Here's how EA describes the new mode:
"The ambush begins as Ewoks attack unsuspecting stormtroopers, using spears, Wisties, and other skills to take down their opponents. Each stormtrooper defeated spawns as another Ewok, multiplying until the Empire’s forces have been completely eliminated, and the Ewok celebration can begin. However, the stormtroopers’ superior training and firepower are more than a match for the Ewoks. Armed with a cadre of weapons as well as flashlights to pierce the darkness, players must hold back the Ewok’s ambush if they have a hope of surviving until an extraction team can arrive."
Wisties: Originally seen in the Star Wars universe's made-for-TV movie Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure
Along with the new playable mode, Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will also get some new, Endor-themed cosmetic items for existing characters, including Endor Han and Leia. Players will be able to purchase those new appearances with either in-game credits or crystals. Crystals will be available for purchase using real-world currency in the next week.
This adorable new game mode will be available in Star Wars: Battlefront 2 on April 18.
