Star Wars Commander Unveils The Force Awakens Content Update


Wildly popular mobile app game — Star Wars Commander — has unveiled an all new content update, featuring Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

Disney and Lucasfilm have officially announced today, all new content — for the popular mobile app game Star Wars Commander — based on the first live-action Star Wars film in 10 years, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Star Wars: Commander is a combat strategy game that sets players in the worlds of the Star Wars universe. The game features player vs player, and mission based content, as well as base-building. In this newest content update to the game, players will be able to relocate to, and engage in conflicts on, the world of Takodana, as seen in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailers. If you are unfamiliar with the planet of Takodana, it is the world where Maz Kanata’s castle is located.

As to the mercenary units that players will have access to, player vs player conflicts on the planet of Takodana, will battle for two new Star Wars: The Force Awakens inspired mercenary units: The Dowutin Hunter, and Luggabeast Munitioner. Players will also earn the merc units as prizes for completing planetary objectives. These two new units will be permanently unlockable through a leveled-up Cantina and can be upgraded. For a limited time — beginning December 3  players will also receive five free consumable units of each new mercenary by following directions when they log into the game.

Details of the new units and planet for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens inspired update for Star Wars Commander includes:

  • Luggabeast Munitioner – Players can hire the armored Luggabeast Munitioner, based on the cybernetic-enhanced beast of burden in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to support their massive armies as they apply a damage buff to nearby friendly units.
  • Dowutin Hunter – Inspired by a new species unveiled in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Dowutin Hunters are lumbering infantry hired to dispatch enemy defending units with shock and awe, troops and vehicles alike. They carry a grip of thermal detonators and a modified starfighter blaster to ensure that the job gets done
  • Planet Takodana – Featuring Maz’s Castle, the planet Takodana is the home to many unaligned scoundrels and provides the perfect setting for new Conflicts in Star Wars:Commander.
