Ewoks, those guerilla warfare teddy bears from Return of the Jedi, will soon be playable in Star Wars Battlefront II. The upcoming Night on Endor update features an Ewok Hunt mode that appears to be a Star Wars riff on the popular “infection” multiplayer versus modes in other games. Ewoks hunt stormtroopers using their woodland weapons, and each stormtrooper killed turns into another ewok hunter. Flip enough stormtroopers, and the ewoks win, allowing them to rock out on some helmet drums and dancing.
The Night on Endor update will also bring the long-awaited cosmetic skins for regular troopers and officers. Here comes the alien heads for rebels and a rainbow of stripe options for stormtroopers.
