And if the Cartel happens to advance their business interests during the Feast, everyone wins! If Gaboorga and Duuba can cooperate, they could rocket the Cartel back into the upper echelons of the galactic underworld. But the Hutts’ conflicting priorities means they’re constantly undermining each other. Each week a new Story Mission will unlock to progress this storyline, leading to the climatic choice during the third and final week: Gaboorga…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes Galactic Legends: Unlock and Requirements

The devs over at Capital games are adressing some questions around which types of units and how many units will be required for Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and Sith Eternal Emperor. Both of these units will follow a similar roll out as previous Galactic Legends but with a shorter roll out and will not require previous Galactic Legends, such as Rey or Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, to unlock. There has also been some confusion around if there are 15 or 14 requirements as the two screens below show conflicting information. There are 15 units required for Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and 15 units required for Sith Eternal Emperor. The prerequisites screen is missing one of the units in a future batch and will be fixed in a future update. See you on the Holotables! Join the forum discussion on this post

The Facts About “Star Wars: Squadrons”

For many years, new “Star Wars” content was few and far between. When video games were released, we were expected to be content to play them for years on end. The idea of a new movie was laughable, and after the misery of the prequel trilogy, there weren’t all that many people who were receptive to the idea of seeing one anyway. A live-action television series like “The Mandalorian” would have been unthinkable. We all know what’s changed since then. Disney came in, and since then, “Star Wars” has been everywhere. There are new films, new toys, new games, and of course, “The Mandalorian” is one of the best TV shows of any genre that we’ve seen in years.  While “The Mandalorian” appears to have pleased everybody, and the most recent three movies split the crowd, our relationship with the newer “Star Wars” video games is a little more complicated….

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Developer Insight – Threepio & Chewie
