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. In Ewok Hunt, you start as an Ewok or in a group of stormtroopers. When someone playing one of the Empire's foot soldiers dies, they rejoin the game as an Ewok, whittling down the survivors until they're all eliminated or they last long enough to be extracted. As the Ewoks kill the stormtroopers, they multiply until the Empire's armies have been wiped out.

EA is continuing to dish out new free DLC for Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Remember when the Galactic Emperor sent an entire legion of his best troops-his best-to Endor and they got their asses kicked by a gang of ambulatory teddy bears with sharp sticks?

Starting on April 18, players can jump into a new, limited-time mode, unlock special Appearances via Crystals and/or Credits and more in the Star Wars Battlefront II Night on Endor update. As with other cosmetic items, they can be bought using earned in-game currency or by using crystals, which can be purchased using real currency.

The "Night on Endor" update will also reintroduce microtransactions into the game, but as promised you won't be able to buy any gameplay-changing items - only cosmetic items. Armed with an arsenal of weapons as well as flashlights to cut through the darkness, players must hold back the Ewok ambush if they have a hope of surviving until an extraction team can arrive. Over 50 additional Appearances are making their way to Star Wars Battlefront II with this update.

Welcome to the very first edition of the Community Transmission the brand-new Star Wars Battlefront II Community update. "In March we launched the Progression Update, April is Night on Endor and moving forward we're committed to keeping up this cadence of content updates".

What makes it worse (for the stormtroopers at least) is that the mode also takes a page out of Halo's "Infection" gametype.
