In case you didn't watch the videos:
Ewok Hunt is a new temporary game mode set on Endor at night. Stormtroopers, only using first person mode, equipped with flashlights with the worst batteries ever, will be fighting in pitch dark conditions against Ewoks, who will be playing in third person only. When a Stormtrooper dies, the player will respawn as an Ewok.
It releases on April 18th.
Sounds... Interesting. Tense. I look forward to giving it a shot.
Customization details - 40 new appearances for troopers, 10 for heroes (hooded Yoda, wounded Chewie, administrator Lando etc). No word on Clone Wars era customizations, IIRC only OT and NT stuff has been talked about.
Season 2 will be revealed and launched in May.
Solo releases in May, so that'll be Season 2, and Season 3 will probably be a Clone Wars season, launching a couple of months later (September/October) because the Clone Wars cartoon's 10th anniversary is in October.
The in-game holographic effect for spawning troopers will be changed, probably so we can spend more time admiring our fine customizations.
Also, with the Season 2 update we'll be getting another update that'll let us spend our skill points between rounds, instead of exclusively from the main menu.
