Yes, you can now do battle ewok style in the latest mode, Ewok Hunt.

Whether you begin as an Ewok defending your homeland and stalking your Imperial enemy, or as a stormtrooper fighting to escape the ambush, players can fight through the night for control of Endor in the all-new Ewok Hunt mode.

Nevertheless, EA has announced today that with the upcoming update there will be more than 50 new appearances, including new Endor-themed looks for Han Solo and Leia Organa.

EA posted more information on the "Night of Endor" DLC over on the official Star Wars Battlefront 2 forum pages.

Tech Tent: Questions for Zuckerberg and Cambridge
Analysts and investors keep close tabs on Facebook's user statistics as a way to gauge the company's financial health. The fallout from the scandal also precipitated Mark Zuckerberg's appearance before the US Congress this week.

EA has already detailed its plans for Battlefront II's revamped progression system, this time removing any pay-to-win mechanics. It plays a little bit of Horde Mode defense for the stormtroopers, who must fend off the technologically-deficient Ewoks as they swarm through the forest of Endor at night, waiting for extraction. When someone playing one of the Empire's foot soldiers dies, they rejoin the game as an Ewok, whittling down the survivors until they're all eliminated or they last long enough to be extracted. But enough of the introductions, we've got a lot to talk about so let's dive straight in. If all of the Empire's troops are wiped out, the Ewoks win. The Crystals represent the micro-transaction system, as you will be able to buy them with real money. They can also use credits to unlock iconic "Star Wars" characters like Luke Skywalker, but prior to the game's launch the characters were prohibitively expensive.

Going forward, DICE implied that they want to keep up a monthly cadence of smaller content releases, while also providing larger multiple-month Seasons that will pair with big events like Star Wars film releases an anniversaries in the Star Wars universe.

However now that we know crystals are coming back for cosmetics only, will fans be pleased with the news too?
