Watch the Star Wars Battlefront 2: Ewok Hunt – Night on Endor Trailer to see what’s in store for this limited-time mode that will be available starting April 18. In this new mode you start out as either an Ewok or one of a group of stormtroopers. The Ewok ambushes the stormtroopers, and each time a stormtrooper dies, he respawns as another Ewok. If all stormtroopers are eliminated, the Ewoks win. However, stormtroopers have flashlights as well as an arsenal of weapons at their disposal, giving them a chance to hold out until the extraction team arrives.
Beneath the evening skies of Endor, the might of the Empire means little to the Ewoks as they fight for control of their home world. In Ewok Hunt*, Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II’s exciting new mode, spears and blasters battle for dominance as a squad of stormtroopers are ambushed by a tribe of Ewoks descending from the trees to channel their hidden fury. Available only for a limited time, Ewok Hunt lets you stalk your Imperial enemy under the cover of night, or desperately fight to hold off the pint-sized throngs until you can escape.
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.
This looks like so much fun, but I don’t have Battlefront 2. Recommendations for or against?
