Just in time for The Force Awakens’ release in theaters, Electronic Arts’ RPG-style turned-based mobile CCG, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, has received a new update that adds a number of the film’s major characters. As of today, Finn, Rey, Poe Dameron, Kylo Ren, and Captain Phasma can now be collected and added to your roster of characters spanning every corner of the Star Wars universe.
Below are each of the new character’s highlights:
- Finn: Resistance Tank that keeps the pressure up with a balance between offense and defense
- Kylo Ren: Versatile First Order attacker that evades projectiles and can reuse special attacks when damaged
- Captain Phasma: High damage leader that can grant First Order allies many extra attacks
- Poe Dameron: Resistance Tank with a Taunt that inflicts Expose for big reversals
- Rey: Risky Attacker with high damage and evasion, but is vulnerable to debuffs
- First Order Stormtrooper: First Order Tank that uses Advantage to disrupt enemies
- First Order Officer: First Order support that grants Advantage and can manipulate both ally and enemy Turn Meters
- First TIE Order Pilot: First Order attacker that can deal extreme damage in a single turn with Advantage
- Resistance Pilot: Resistance attacker that can use Expose, Foresight, and Turn Meter gains to surprise enemies
- Resistance Trooper: Opportunistic Resistance attacker that can deal heavy damage to debuffed enemies
These characters are available in Chromium Data cards or as shard drops, so you are able to farm them for free by simply playing the game. Alternatively, there’s also The Force Awakens Ultimate Bundle ($99.99), which includes all of the following:
- 4-Star Kylo Ren
- 4-Star Finn
- 50 Poe Dameron Shards
- 50 Captain Phasma Shards (which is actually enough to unlock her)
- 40 3-star Training Droids
- 300,000 Credits
