[Update]: After two years of patches, development on Battlefront 2 is now coming to an end.

Star Wars Battlefront 2's upcoming Night on Endor update will be bringing with it a rather interesting new game mode - Ewok Hunt. In it a group of heavily armed stormtroopers will be faced off against a swarm of Ewoks equipped only with spears and other such primitive weaponry. Since a straight up firefight will always result in the Ewoks getting annihilated, the Ewok team will need to heavily rely on ambush tactics and teamwork in order to bring down even a single stormtrooper.

Killing a single player might not sound like much, but each stormtrooper the Ewoks take down will respawn as one of them, essentially giving the Ewok team more and more momentum as the match goes on. This will either continue until all Empire forces have been eliminated or until the stormtroopers finally reach their extraction team and make it off Endor. A simple little mode in the grand scheme of things, but one that I must admit sounds quite entertaining. After all, who doesn't want to stab stormtroopers in the shins with a bunch of Ewoks!

Besides this new game mode, the April 18th update will also add a bunch of new cosmetics that can be acquired through either Crystals (bought with real money) or with in-game Credits. Perhaps most importantly, none of this will be found in loot boxes of any sort, so if you see a cosmetic you like you can just buy it directly. In total there will be 50 new cosmetics, including things like: "Officer Appearances for the First Order and The Empire, Rebel Trooper Appearances such as the Heavy Quarren Rebel and the Twi'lek Specialist, plus Heavy Zabrak and Duros Officer cosmetics for the Resistance."

You can learn a little bit more about the Night on Endor update over at the official website. And finally, here's the trailer for the new Ewok Hunt game mode. Enjoy!
