Star Wars: The Force Awakens Content Comes to This Star Wars Mobile Game

  • Written by Gamespot

New content themed around Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now available in the mobile strategy game Star Wars Commander, Disney and Lucasfilm have announced. Specifically, the free mobile title now lets players travel to, and take part in battles on, the planet Takodana, which has been seen in trailers for The Force Awakens.

There are two new Force Awakens-inspired mercenary units, Dowutin Hunter and Luggabeast Muitioneer, added to Commander as part of this update. You can earn them as permanent rewards for completing certain objectives; they can also be upgraded.

Disney has also announced that, starting today, December 3, everyone who logs into Commander will receive five free consumable units of each new mercenary. Click through the images in the gallery above to get a closer look at the new content; full descriptions are available below.

  • Luggabeast Munitioneer – Players can hire the armored Luggabeast Munitioneer, 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.

Commander launched in August 2014 and has now reached more than 20 million downloads. Disney has regularly supported the game with new content, including new storylines and even zombies.

It's not the only game that's getting Force Awakens-inspired content, as the Battle of Jakku DLC started its rollout this week for EA's Star Wars Battlefront.

The Force Awakens comes to theaters on December 18.
