An exciting update has just gone live in Star Wars Commander, bringing us a ton of new features and improved game mechanics, as well as brand new content that everybody should be excited about. The game looks better now, is faster than ever and the new update make it more exciting than ever. So in this article we’re going to talk about the new features in Star Wars Commander: Heroic Defense Challenges, Sonic Cannon Turret, Dropship Starship Strikes, Traps and much more!
Star Wars Commander Heroic Defense Challenge
At the moment of writing this article, we only know that the Heroic Defense Challenges have been announced for the game. They will surely take place as a new event in the game and they will be more defense oriented. The official description only tells us this: “Deploy up to 3 Heroes to aid in your defense, in an all new event type!”
So we can easily understand that it will be a change to the regular, attack-minded challenges and it will focus on defense. We will be allowed to deploy three heroes too in order to help so if that much is needed, I believe we’re talking about a really difficult set of new missions. So my advice? Start upgrading your three favorite heroes as much as possible right away! And we’ll discuss the Heroic Defense Challenges once they go live – in the comment section at the end of the article!
There’s a ton of new content that will make the wait for the Heroic Defense challenges a lot easier. First of all, for those who had maxed out their Headquarters, there’s a new level for it – so you can now upgrade it to level 9.
We also have a new Turret that unlocks once you get your Headquarters to level 9 – the Sonic Cannon Turret which attacks multiple enemies in a straight line with a destructive sound blast. It’s slow but extremely powerful.
Dropship Starship Strikes – Both Empire and Rebel players can now deploy ground troops anywhere on the map via Starship Strikes.
Dropship Traps – All new traps that call in Dropships that deploy ground troops to defend your base!
Improvements & Changes
We also have a redesigned squad interface, an Starship Strike rebalance that makes all Starships more specialized, as well as new animations for our Starships in battle. All in all, just like all the updates that we have received lately from the creators of the game, we’re talking about an amazing new update!
Of course, the most exciting thing of them all is the upcoming Event – the Star Wars Commander Heroic Defense Challenge, and I am sure we’ll all do our best to get the most out of it. As I said, we should discuss the event in the comment section below.
