Kylo Ren. Captain Phasma. Finn. Rey. As far as The Force Awakens goes, these are the four big new characters everybody is talking about. They’ve been in trailers, on posters, and in every toy store you can imagine.
And starting today, they’ll be joining the cast of the recently released mobile strategy game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes.
Mixing RPG-style combat with a huge roster of collectible characters, Galaxy of Heroes really hits the sweet spot when it comes to fandom. I’ve played it every day since launch, and have since amassed a group of warriors so diverse that Count Dooku fights alongside Lobot and the Emperor’s crimson clad Royal Guard every night (when I should be doing the dishes).
The complete list of The Force Awakens characters that are now available in the game, along with their powers, has been cut and paste from today’s press release below. It’s worth noting that not all are new additions. The First Order Stormtrooper, First Order TIE Pilot and Resistance Trooper have been available in the game since launch.
- Finn: Resistance Tank that keeps the pressure up with a balance between offense and defense
- Kylo Ren: Versatile First Order attacker that evades projectiles and can reuse special attacks when damaged
- Captain Phasma: High damage leader that can grant First Order allies many extra attacks
- Poe Dameron: Resistance Tank with a Taunt that inflicts Expose for big reversals
- Rey: Risky Attacker with high damage and evasion, but is vulnerable to debuffs
- First Order Stormtrooper: First Order Tank that uses Advantage to disrupt enemies
- First Order Officer: First Order support that grants Advantage and can manipulate both ally and enemy Turn Meters
- First TIE Order Pilot: First Order attacker that can deal extreme damage in a single turn with Advantage
- Resistance Pilot: Resistance attacker that can use Expose, Foresight, and Turn Meter gains to surprise enemies
- Resistance Trooper: Opportunistic Resistance attacker that can deal heavy damage to debuffed enemies
