The headliner for the content drop is Ewok Hunt, a new game mode that seems like it will play like an infection-style game.

The update also brings with it a new, limited-time multiplayer mode called Ewok Hunt, which pits Ewoks against Stormtroopers.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will get some new, Endor-themed cosmetic items for existing characters, namely Endor Han and Endor Leia. EA and developer DICE temporarily removed microtransactions from Battlefront II, and later made changes to the game's progression system to make it more linear and less grindy.

Night on Endor launches on April 18th on all platforms, check out the screenshots below.

Infosys Q4 net profit grows 2.4 per cent to Rs 3690 cr
Operating margin for Q4 was 24.7 percent, while basic earnings per share (EPS) were Rs 16.98, posting a YoY growth of 7.7 percent. The forecast for full-year revenue growth was slightly below brokerage firm Macquarie's 6.5 to 8.5 per cent forecast.

In total there are forty new Trooper Appearances, including new Officer Appearances for both the First Order and The Empire. Ewoks, armed with Wisties and spears, must wipe out all Stormtroopers to win the match, while Stormtroopers win by holding off the Ewoks for an undefined amount of time until an extraction team arrives.

We've heard a lot about the Iden the last couple of weeks and the consensus amongst the Community has been that she was a little overpowered. As each Stormtrooper is defeated they'll spawn as an Ewok until all Stormtroopers have been eliminated. While the update will finally allow you to convert earning crafting parts into skill points. Plus, if you want, you can use the play-generated Credits currency to pick up these "Appearances" instead. 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.

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

Our spotlight this month falls onto VicenteProD, who has been creating some truly remarkable Star Wars Battlefront II screenshots.
