Star Wars: Commander Introduces New Content Inspired by “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”
New Armory System also launches with game update, allowing players to customize and strengthen their units and structures
Disney and Lucasfilm Ltd. today unveiled the first wave of new content inspired by the first of the Star Wars standalone films, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” for the hit mobile combat strategy game Star Wars: Commander. With this update, new characters and vehicles from the highly anticipated film such as Shoretroopers, Rebel Commandos, Gigoran Fighters and AT-ACT Walkers will be added to the game. Additional “Rogue One” content will be added in-game later this year.
The update also introduces a new Armory feature that allows players to customize the appearance of their troops though special equipment. These customizations include recognizable Armory content from the classic Star Wars films, including Imperial Snowtroopers, Cold-weather Rebel Soldiers and Captain Han Solo in protective gear to battle sub-zero temperatures on Hoth.
Players can join the battle for control of the galaxy by downloading the game from the Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore and Windows App Store.
The Star Wars: Commander update coincides with the global launch of the “Rogue One” product line and the Go Rogue UGC contest on StarWars.com/GoRogue. Fans 13+ are invited to create and share their own short stories or skits based on the characters from “Rogue One” for a chance to win a trip to Lucasfilm in San Francisco to see an advance screening of the film and have their winning video premiered on the big screen.
