Star Wars Battlefront II New Mode Coming Soon; Premium Currency Returning

For newcomers who may not be aware of the goings on with Battlefront 2, crystals originally debuted along with the game, however, the backlash that EA received on their "pay-to-win" method led to them pulling crystals from the game completely.

Star Wars Battlefront II is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players.

This will reportedly be a "revamped" microtransaction system that will bring back in-game purchases with real-world money into the controversial game title. These special currency items can be used to unlock any one of the 50 new Appearances (and older ones too) "including Endor Leia and Endor Han". A great way to earn some additional Credits towards the Appearance you have your eyes set on. These change will come as part of the Night on Endor update that's being released next Wednesday (18th April).




The mode, which is called Ewok Hunt, takes place on the forest moon of Endor during the night, and is between Ewoks and stormtroopers. It is the Ewoks' task to eliminate the Stormtroopers; the troopers must withstand the attack until evacuation. Don't let their teddy-like appearance fool you, Ewoks are vicious and not at all cuddly and pointless excuses created to appeal to children.

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. Ewoks, armed with Wisties and spears, must wipe out all Stormtroopers to win the match, while Stormtroopers win by holding off the Ewoks for an undefined amount of time until an extraction team arrives. For each Stormtrooper that is killed, a new Ewok will spawn. "We'll continue to improve the game, we'll continue to push on these things, and we'll have to be very cautious with what this means for future products". "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".
