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

Posted by on February 5th, 2015
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

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.

According to Reddit’s iOS Gaming Board, Square Enix seems to have mixed opinions on iOS 8 compatibility updates for The World Ends With You: Solo Remix. User ‘chupwn’ posted a copy of their support ticket, which reads:

“Unfortunately we have been notified that this title will not be receiving an update to be compatible with iOS 8 and forward. For this we and the development team deeply apologize. We can only suggest that you play the game on an iOS 7 or earlier device at this time. If have purchased the game recently and would like a refund or reimbursement you will need to contact Apple Support as they would act as the retailer in this case. Since we are not the retailer and simply the publisher we would be unable to provide a refund under any circumstances. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

Afterwards they received another reply from Square Enix correcting their previous email:

“We apologize, the previous response was premature as our teams have reviewed their response and realized that it was a lot more severe than they meant to provide. They have corrected our notification. This title’s patch is more complex than expected and it is taking extra time to patch the game, unfortunately they do not have a final ETA as to when this will be complete.”

Currently, The World Ends With You: Solo Remix is simply unplayable on iOS 8 – it gets stuck on an “Initializing” screen. Naturally users are in an uproar over the email and have spoken out on the Reddit message board about Square Enix’s performance. 148Apps has reached out to Square Enix for clarification but we have yet to hear back.
