The latest Star Wars Commander update brings a couple of new and highly anticipated faces to the game, in terms of two new heroes: Luke Skywalker for the Rebels and Darth Vader for the Empire. I am sure that everybody is extremely curious to know everything about the just-released heroes and I am here to share with you the details on the latest Star Wars Commander hero for the rebels, Luke Skywalker – as I am playing the Rebels in this game.
And since an image speaks better than 1,000 words, here is Luke Skywalker in our favorite game:
He’s a really good hero, that’s for sure and those who hated Chewie until now I am sure will get a new enemy number one in Luke Skywalker. Which makes a lot of sense, right?
But back to Star Wars Commander and the latest hero, apart from some really nice starting stats, it is also coming with a new feature: Hero Ability. Lightsaber Whirlwind is the name of his super power and it’s pretty awesome: when players activate it in battle, Luke Skywalker starts spinning around, deflecting all incoming fire from the turrets and sending all those projectiles back to surrounding buildings. A joy to watch!
But even without the special hero power, Luke remains a great hero: he has good speed, a good starting attack and even better health, plus it is a Destroyer class hero, preferring to attack Turrets first. Combine that with his power, and you have a one man army ready to cause some serious damage when played.
Luke Skywalker becomes accessible in the game as a hero when you upgrade your Hero Center to level 8, but can also be used in the upcoming event, Echoes of the Force, as a consumable. You can check out the stats of Darth Vader here.
