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

Here is the latest Developer insights from the guys over at Capital Games on Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes.

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Grand Arena Season 7: The Empire Strikes Back

Starting next week, Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes got a brand new season of Grand Arena Championships, and with the 40th anniversary of Empire Strikes Back happening during this GAC, Capital games thought it would be an excellent idea to theme the GAC with that movie in mind to celebrate!
