    Hi Holotable Heroes,

    In this update, we’re proud to present Galactic Challenges! This all-new game mode represents a huge step for Galaxy of Heroes as it lays the foundation of our new content initiative, allowing us to generate fresh content, challenges, and feats on a regular basis going forward.

    With Galactic Challenges, players will be presented with new battles that provide the opportunity to utilize many parts of their character and ship roster in a fun and meaningful way. Galactic Challenge events keep the game fresh and engaging by offering interesting and unique encounters that feature always-changing combinations of modifiers, locations, and conditions, along with multiple tiers of difficulty. Modifiers add a wide range of positive and negative effects to the battle, meaning you’ll have to mix up your strategies to succeed.

    The best part? This is just the beginning. Galactic Challenges will lay a foundation that allows Capital Games to continue expanding the variety of content we are able to offer now and in the future. We’re all really excited at the studio and can’t wait for our passionate community of players to dive in!

    See you on the Holotables!

    Hi Holotable Heroes,

    Mon Mothma, the Chancellor of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, is arriving on the Holotables! Mon Mothma's leadership and fearlessness propelled her to the top of the Empire’s “Most Wanted” list and served as an inspiration to all members of the Rebellion. Ever mindful of the consequences of war, but always willing to stand for justice, Mon Mothma is a welcome addition to Rebel squads as she uses the Field Promotion ability to summon increasingly stronger Rebel units to battle.

    Thankfully, many Bothans don’t have to die for you to add Mon Mothma to your band of Rebels. You can obtain this Rebel non-combatant leader by completing the new Marquee Event, The Alliance Chancellor!

    FIXES
    • UNIT - Fixed an issue that caused Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker's animations not to play
  4. 3cztzr8obrnt.png

    Hi Holotable Heroes!

    Few pairings in Star Wars have had each other’s backs like Threepio & Chewie, who are arriving as a unique combo on the Holotables! The bond forged on Cloud City between one of our favorite droids and Wookiees showed the Empire this unlikely duo is a force to be reckoned with. In addition to being a unique combination unit, Threepio & Chewie offer new gameplay strategies by providing both damage and support abilities, ramping damage, and afflicting Blind on enemies. Only an overgrown mophead would miss out on the chance to add Threepio & Chewie to their collection! So, don't do anything foolish and make sure to participate in the Marquee event, Escape From Cloud City.


    CHARACTERS AND SHIPS

  5. Hi Holotable Heroes,

    Today’s Update improves many of the underlying technologies that we use to create Galaxy of Heroes. These significant tech upgrades enable us to continue to support this amazing game for years to come and bring you a Star Wars experience that’s better than ever.

    It may seem like nothing has changed when you log in, but there are plenty of updates under the hood that allow for numerous improvements in the future. With a unified toolset and modernized APIs, these changes allow us to access more design tools and build a smoother process for developing new content. The updated version of Unity (the game engine used to create Galaxy of Heroes) expands the possibilities of what the designers can do when they create characters and events.

    On the visual side, this update also enables us to create better character animations and cutscenes that truly capture the exciting moment of Star Wars. Besides giving artists more polygons to work with, tools like a new particle system will improve the visual effects we can create for everything from characters to menus. Some of those improvements you may have already seen in the Mandalorians characters or the Jedi Knight Luke event and this update allows us to do even more in the years to come.

    Why not couple this Update with a larger release of characters or a new feature? There are a few forward facing Update notes below that this upgrade allowed us to fix, but this is a substantial release for us internally as it touches many (if not all) parts of the game. We have done a large amount of work to ensure this release is smooth but we wanted to separate this from any major content or feature updates and isolate any issues before Galactic Challenges is released.

    This is a large, exciting update for the long term future of the game. We strive to provide you with the highest level of service because we believe in the game, and the community. That’s why we have invested time in upgrading the game’s technology, so we can all enjoy this game as passionate Star Wars fans for years to come.

    Thank you all for your support!
