'Star Wars Battlefront II' adds Ewoks to 'Night on Endor'


Over 50 additional Appearances to personalize your units and heroes will be made available in this update. Instead, players are taking on the role of Ewoks on the forest moon of Endor as they hunt down Imperial stormtroopers.

You'll soon be able to live out your Return of the Jedi dreams in a new limited-time mode coming to Star Wars Battlefront II on April 18. First, Crystals can only be used to buy Appearances, which are cosmetic items.

EA also confirmed that another "season" of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is on the way. With crystals, you can purchase appearances such as the new Endor Leia and Endor Han.

Body cam footage of police interaction with YouTube shooter released
Aghdam was reportedly offended with the YouTube because of it had stopped paying her for her motion pictures. In the video, Aghdam tells police she left home because "We don't get along together, so I left them".

Micro-transactions aside, Star Wars fans can actually be excited about Night on Endor.

The bad news is EA has just confirmed that real-money spending is coming back, with the return of the premium crystal currency. In Ewok Hunt, you start as an Ewok or in a group of stormtroopers. Each stormtrooper defeated spawns as another Ewok, multiplying until the Empire's forces have been completely eliminated, and the Ewok celebration can begin.

Night on Endor looks like a promising addition to Star Wars Battlefront 2. The first is in the same style as the Night on Endor Update that we're releasing on April 18th, and the second is Seasons. 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.

Shawnee School District planning projects
Stults said from now on, there will be a police presence at both scheduled and unannounced fire drills at the district's schools. Dennis Filippone, who has served as acting superintendent this year, said he is looking forward to stability in the district.

We have loads more content in the pipeline, too.

What makes it worse (for the stormtroopers at least) is that the mode also takes a page out of Halo's "Infection" gametype. While there hasn't been any mention of a pink Darth Vader skin (sadly we may only have mods for that), there are a number of other skins included in the official forum post, such as Ach-To Rey and Wounded Chewbacca.
