DOWNLOAD: Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes is now available for Android

In case you haven’t heard, Star Wars has a hot new game that’s now available on Google Play. It’s Galaxy of Heroes, a card game where you collect Star Wars characters to use in various turn-based battles and missions. The game features characters that span the entirety of the Star Wars timeline and universe, including the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, the animated series and even new characters from the upcoming 7th episode titled The Force Awakens.

Every card and character have unique abilities and attributes, and some even synergize with other cards to incentivize collecting. You can train your cards to get more powerful, to boot, so the more you play the stronger your heroes are.

The collectible card genre has exploded in recent years, so we aren’t surprised to see Disney and LucasArts take another stab at it. We say “another” because the company actually had a similar game back in 2014 named Star Wars Assault. It was a pretty fun game then, but for some unknown reason it had been removed from Google Play.

Now we know why — Galaxy of Heroes looks even better, and to have all the content from every era of Star Wars is a pretty big deal on its own. Watch the trailer above to see what it’s all about, then go ahead and download it for free from Google Play if you like what you see.
