Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Content Update 6/21/2018

While last week may have seemed relatively quiet from the surface, The SW:GoH team has been working to bring you lots of interesting new content in this week’s update. Check out the notes below for information about everything included in this update, scheduled for today.

The Ships PvE table, Fleet Battles, has finally arrived! Unlock Fleet Battles at Level 60 to start earning Ship blueprints, Reinforcement Materials, and even Ship Omega Ability Materials! With a new energy dedicated exclusively to ship combat, the Fleet Battles table is a great place to test out new strategies and collect your favorite Star Wars ships and characters.

GEAR 12+
Gear Tier 12 has been expanded to include the 4th and 5th slots with an all new set of Gear pieces. Equip these brand new items and strengthen the Galactic Power of your collection! These pieces will be available exclusively in the Heroic Sith Raid to start, but will arrive in other locations later.

We’ve also made changes to the Heroic Sith Triumvirate reward structure which you can read about here.

In this update we’re bringing a brand new unit and a rework of an existing one. Range Trooper is an aggressive Empire Support that provides other Imperial Trooper allies with Assist Chance. For more information on this unit, check out their Character Kit below.
