The update introduces, among other things, a new play mode, which could become permanent if enough people like it, according to Dennis Brännvall himself.

Dennis Brännvall has also confirmed that the new Squad System is not getting introduced in today's update, but the team is still working on it.

In case you missed them, you can catch the details of the Night on Endor update below.

The Battle Begins

In the new mode, you start as an Ewok or in a group of stormtroopers. The ambush begins as the Ewok attacks the unsuspecting stormtroopers, using spears, Wisties, and whatever abilities they can muster to take down the intruders. Each stormtrooper defeated spawns as another Ewok. If the Empire’s forces have been completely eliminated, the Ewoks win and their celebration can begin.

However, the stormtroopers’ superior training and firepower are more than a match for the frantic Ewoks. 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.

Crystals Return – and Some Special Appearances

Our April update isn’t just about Ewok Hunt. As part of this month’s release, Crystals will return to Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II as one of the ways for fans to unlock Appearances, including Endor Leia and Endor Han. Real-world currency can only be used to purchase Crystals, which are only redeemable for Appearances. Credits are earned through in-game activity and can be redeemed toward Appearances, as well. Over 50 additional Appearances to personalize your units will be made available in this update

Star Wars Battlefront II is now out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in all regions.
