EA to Bring Back Micro-transactions in Battlefront 2

EA to Bring Back Micro-transactions in Battlefront 2

Not only will the new game mode be added, but there will also be new Endor-themed cosmetic items added for certain heroes.

The catch is that the Imperials, much like the real-world force they're modeled after, can not survive an extended war of attrition: Players start the mode as either an Ewok or a Stormtrooper, but every Stormtrooper felled respawns as an Ewok. Each defeated stormtrooper spawns as another Ewok, multiplying until the Empire's forces have been completely eliminated, and the Ewok celebration can begin. Players will be able to purchase those new appearances, as EA calls them, either with in-game credits or crystals. "Credits are earned through in-game activity and can be redeemed for Appearances, as well". A Q&A near the end of the community update teases Clone Wars content coming to Battlefront II eventually, but whether that will be part of one of the monthly content drops or larger seasons remains to be seen.

DICE is planning a new limited-time event for Star Wars Battlefront II that pits a squad of stormtroopers against spear-wielding Ewoks and that's just the kind of silly thing to get me back into the game. First, Crystals can only be used to buy Appearances, which are cosmetic items. The story has Ewoks ambushing a brigade of Imeprial troops on the Forrest moon, ans players can fight through the night for control of Endor in the all-new Ewok Hunt mode.

Crystals are also making their way back into the game after the controversy surrounding Star Wars and microtransactions.

Night on Endor looks like a promising addition to Star Wars Battlefront 2. Seasons will revolve around specific themes; the studio hasn't revealed what Season Two's theme will be, but focusing on the upcoming Solo film is a possibility.

You'll be able to read about all the fixes coming in the next update when the full patch notes go live. We think we know which side we'd rather be on.
