EA and developer Capital Games have detailed the February update for Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, revealing the game’s first ever event — featuring a new character.
As explained by EA, this event will feature seven stages which must be unlocked progressively. Only Jedi units are allowed, and the requirements for each stage are based on the star rarity of the Jedi units. Here’s how it will work:
The first Battle in this Event requires five Jedi which are 1 Star or above. Completing that Battle will award Shards of the new character, and unlock Stage 2.
Stage 2 requires five Jedi which are 2 Star or above, and so on up to Stage 7 which requires five Jedi at 7 Stars to get the final Shards needed to Promote the new character to 7 Stars! Once players have completed Stage 5, they will have enough Shards to Activate the new character at 5 Stars.
EA is planning to have this event available for one week before it disappears for “a number of weeks”. It will return again for another week and so. “This approach will give players multiple opportunities to progress int he Event, with time in between to prepare as needed,” explained developer Capital Games.
This will be the only place to gain Shards for the new character, who is not expected to be for sale or acquirable elsewhere in the game.
EA has not revealed the identity of the new character, but many speculate it to be Clone Wars Yoda. We’ll have to wait and see.
