The only way to obtain crystals is to spend real money on them, and crystals themselves can only be spent on new "Appearances" to use in game. "Credits are earned through in-game activity and can be redeemed for Appearances, as well".

The new mode is called Ewok Hunt and recreates the Battle of Endor.

What makes it worse (for the stormtroopers at least) is that the mode also takes a page out of Halo's "Infection" gametype. The good news is that this isn't the return of a pay-to-win situation, since the crystals will only be usable on cosmetic items that have no effect on gameplay, with 50 different new outfits to choose from. The limited-time mode that we mentioned before is Ewok Hunt, and it involves clearing out a platoon of Stormtroopers or holding out against an extremely punishing Ewok assault. It chose to temporarily disable crystals at launch and later overhaul "Battlefront II's" loot box and progression systems.

Night on Endor looks like a promising addition to Star Wars Battlefront 2. The game's subreddit highlights transparency issues on whether or not continuing players will receive content beyond shallow microtransactions as well as berating EA for exaggerating the content it is adding within the update.

The Night on Endor update isn't arriving alone, though. Frankly, Ewok Hunt sounds like a whole lot of fun and we can't wait to try it out. We have improved the melee combat responsiveness for all melee attacks including things like lightsabers and Phasma's staff attack. 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.

We can confirm that Season Two will be coming in May, and you'll get more details a little closer to the time.

Ahead of the Endor Update, EA also outlined Battlefront II's overhauled progression system.

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