The stormtroopers might have more firepower behind them, but the Ewoks are far more capable of moving around on their own terrain. Players can start either as an Ewok or Stormtrooper, but each time a Stormtrooper is taken out they become an Ewok. 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.

Those loveable, little hairballs are making their way to Star Wars Battlefront II in an upcoming limited-time mode dubbed Ewok Hunt. Very much akin to the Infection game mode in the Call of Duty series, once a Stormtrooper has been defeated, they respawn as an Ewok until the whole of the Empire's forces have been wiped out.

After the Night on Endor update though EA are hoping to draw a line under the whole debacle, with all the new content after this being classified as "season two".

For those who absolutely don't want to spend real money no matter what, these looks can also be purchased in your in-game credits.
