EA has been teasing its upcoming Star Wars RPG for months now, and we’re happy to report that it’s finally here. Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes has made its way to the Google Play Store.
This is a standard turn-based RPG that features your favorite (and not-so-favorite) characters from the Star Wars universe such as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Ahsoka and many, many more. Characters in the game aren’t just from the original trilogy, though. You can collect characters from all six movies, as well as characters from The Clone Wars and Rebels, too. The aim of the game is to build up your team to win as many battles as you can across the galaxy on familiar planets such as Hoth, Bespin, Tatooine, Coruscant and more. You can craft both light and dark side teams with Jedi and Sith lords. You’ll need to make strategic choices to pick characters with abilities that compliment one another.
You’ll win new characters automatically every once in awhile, but there’s a faster way to build your team: in-game currency. You’ll be rewarded with a certain amount of gems that can be used to buy new characters. If you don’t have enough gems, you can (surprise, surprise) buy more gems with real money. See how this works?
This is a free-to-play title from EA, so you can expect tons of in-app purchases. Maybe it’s just my love for Star Wars that’s clouding my vision, but in the short time I’ve been playing the game, the in-app purchases haven’t really been bugging me too much.
