Star Wars: Commander Gets a Big New Update, Adds Time-Limited Campaign

Fans of Star Wars: Commander are in for some good news: Disney and Lucasfilm are updating the game with a time-limited campaign called "Secret Alliances."

The new campaign brings a host of new units and features; per the press release:

Campaign Reward units include:

Universal
· Johhar Kessen Hero Unit: Former senator Kessen's custom sniper blaster, "Karina," deals extreme damage to soft targets. While he can out-range many static defenses, his ability to damage them is low.

Rebel
· A-Wing Starship Strike: The Rebel Alliance uses A-Wing starfighters to support ground forces. Their powerful weaponry employs an advanced targeting system, concentrating firepower to dispatch particle shields. (Requires Starship Command)

· HWK-290 Starship Strike: Originally manufactured without weapons, this HWK-290 freighter was outfitted to drop incendiary bombs. The bomb blast affects a moderate area, making it most effective against infantry, but also very capable for attacking enemy HQs.

Empire
· TIE Advanced Starship Strike: A newly developed advanced prototype of the TIE Starfighter line, these starships are equipped with a highly sophisticated target tracking system, making them extremely useful against shields. (Requires Starship Command)

· VT-49 Decimator Starship Strike: Receiving command of a VT-49 Decimator is considered an honor in the Imperial Navy. Used as a raiding vessel, this ship drops firebombs which burn a moderate area. It is most effective against infantry, but also very capable for attacking enemy HQs.

New Features:
· Contraband: A new currency called "Contraband" will be introduced with this build. Players will be able to unlock a new, powerful unit that can only be leveled up using this currency.

· Traps: Players will be able to place three new traps around their base as a defense mechanic. Traps will have to be 'reloaded' using currency once they have been used to defend a base in battle.

We had an opportunity to formally review Star Wars: Commander last year. It's available for free (with optional in-app purchases) on the App Store now.

Fans of GAMEVIL's relatively new MORPG Darkness Reborn are in for a treat: the game is getting a January update.

Per the recent press release, version 1.1.1 brings:

Elemental Dungeons: Every Monday through Saturday, players can participate in daily dungeons, where they will encounter and defeat monsters of different strengths and elements such as fire, ice, poison, and lightning, in order to receive Evolve Stones.

Item Evolution System: Using these newly introduced Evolve Stones, players can evolve their maximum-enhanced Epic and Legendary items for the chance to increase their items' Gear Scores.

Equipment Salvage System: In addition to having an Evolve option, Epic and Legendary items now have a Salvage function through which players can acquire crafting materials, Evolve Stones, and Evolution Catalyst (an item that increases the chance of a successful evolution).

Expert Mode: After clearing all 15 stages in the Fallen Iron Castle map in Hard Mode, players can attempt to clear stages in Expert Mode, beginning in the Archen Forest map. The Expert Mode will bring challenges such as increased HP, Attack, and number of monsters.

We had an opportunity to formally look at Darkness Reborn last year and enjoyed it quite a bit. It's available for free (with available in-app purchases) on the App Store now.
