Hi everyone,

Our "Night on Endor" Update finally brings playable Ewoks to the game! In Ewok Hunt players will take on the role of both Stormtroopers and Ewoks as the former try to survive the night on the forest moon.

We're also excited to bring more Appearances into the game so you can start to customize your Troopers and Heroes. This is just the beginning when it comes to ways to customize your look in-game, and we'll continue to add more options as time goes on.

Fresh off the back of our Progression Update last month, we're now providing the option for you to use your remaining Crafting Parts and convert them into Skill Points for your favorite Unit. If you've been hanging onto those Parts, now is the time to utilize them!

One last thing. We’ve added a bonus Credit reward for the winning team in each match. Now is the time to hop in, play the objective, and start winning some matches!

To close, in this update we've also continued our commitment to fixing bugs and balance tweaking by making a variety of updates. Read on below to see what we've changed and be sure to continue providing your feedback so we can identify more things to update.

The Star Wars Battlefront II Team

HEROES AND VILLAINS
IDEN VERSIO
Iden's STUN DROID ability was shocking twice for 0.5 seconds with a 1.3 seconds delay in between. The intent was to give a chance to the target to roll away from the second stun and provide some skill reward. This ended up being confusing and rarely worked out as intended. Given Iden's recent improvements, this ability became too powerful and we needed to lower its effectiveness.
  • Removed double stun
  • Increased stun duration from 0.5 to 0.9 seconds
REY
  • The RESILIENT DASH Star Card is now giving the proper, listed damage reduction. Previously the damage reduction was higher than stated.
  • The INSIGHT ability's description now properly states that Rey's Stamina does not deplete while the ability is active
BOSSK
  • Fixed an issue where a red glint could appear on his Relby V-10 while scoped. In the Star Wars universe this weapon does not have a red glint at all!
  • The explosion timer of the grenades from PREDATOR INSTINCTS is now back to 1.7 seconds as intended
DARTH MAUL
  • The SABER THROW ability should now be more reliable than ever and will connect properly with its target
  • The FOOL ME ONCE Star Card now applies the proper bonuses
DARTH VADER
  • The DARK LORD Star Card now applies the proper bonuses
  • The BONUS HEALTH Star Card now applies the proper bonuses
  • Fixed an issue where Darth Vader would stay in the CHOKE animation when that ability was used in the air
  • The FURIOUS RESILIENCE Star Card is now giving the proper, listed damage reduction. Previously the damage reduction was higher than stated

LUKE SKYWALKER

  • Updated the description of the RUSH ability so that it now properly states that it is an attack

YODA
  • Updated the description of the DASH ATTACK ability so that it now properly states that it is an attack
  • Fixed an issue where the FEEL THE FORCE Star Card description did not state that allies receive bonus health

BOBA FETT
  • Fixed an issue in Arcade where Boba Fett's horizontal speed was too fast while using the JET PACK
  • Boba Fett can now properly melee while FOR THE HUNT is active

LEIA ORGANA
  • Updated the description of the RELENTLESS FIRING ability to reflect that the time decrease per blaster shot fired is lower
  • The HIGH SPIRIT Star Card will now give the proper amount of max health regeneration

EMPEROR PALPATINE
  • The GROWING DARKNESS Star Card will now properly increase the radius of DARK AURA
CAPTAIN PHASMA
  • Fixed an issue where the last staff strike was not dealing more damage than the previous strikes, even with the FINISH THEM OFF Star Card equipped
  • Fixed an issue where the THE MORE THE BETTER Star Card was not properly affecting turret rotation speed

CLASSES, SPECIAL UNITS, & VEHICLES
  • Improved melee combat responsiveness for all melee attacks, including lightsabers. Timing for effects, audio, camera shake, and the application of damage have been closer aligned to the expected moment of the impact to make the melee combat experience feel tighter.

  • Fixed an issue where XP for Speeders was given to the last Class played instead of the Speeder Class
