STAR WARSTM: GALAXY OF HEROES CONTINUES TO EXPAND, ADDING GUILDS, RAIDS, CHAT, AND NEW CHARACTERS

In its biggest update yet, Star Warsâ„¢: Galaxy of Heroes now lets players team up in all-new Guilds, strategise and socialise in real-time chat, and embark on Raids against some of the most notorious characters and more from the Star Warsâ„¢ universe. Offering new players a chance to team up with powerful Guild mates, and giving elite players new high-level challenges and rewards, Guilds and Raids delivers new ways to collect, compete and conquer.

The new update includes:

Guilds
o Guilds are unlocked when players reach level 22. To join a Guild, players can search for a friend, explore recommended Guilds, or create their own.
o New chat functionality lets players connect and strategise with Guild mates in real time.
o Guild activities provide ongoing challenges to inspire competition and cooperation with Guild mates for epic gear and rewards.
o A deep set of Guild management tools allow Guild leaders to customise a logo, make their Guild public or private, promote officers, manage membership, and more.

Raids
o Players can go deep into The Pit, the first in a series of multi-tier Raids that will grow over time. The Pit challenges Guilds to square off against a ferocious rancor, with multiple difficulty levels and a variety of rewards for players from levels 22 to 80.
o Raid leaderboards let players keep tabs on who’s ahead and who’s behind in the race to be the best and wealthiest in the Cantina.

Earn New Characters
o Han Solo (Rancor Raid) – Rebel Scoundrel Attacker who always shoots first. Han gets a free attack at the beginning of the battle, allowing the player to start with a substantial advantage.
o Gamorrean Guard (Guild Store) – These powerful warriors use Taunts and Counters with multiple Damage Over Time effects.
o Jawa Engineer (Guild Store) – High-speed Jawa Healer with a critical chance buff that supports both Jawas and Droids – teams that have, until now, not had a healer of their own.
