In a bit of a surprise move today EA has announce the addition of Veteran Smuggler Han Solo and Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca will be two new characters in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes in the near future. Designed to be “excellent in Territory Battles, where they are able to really shine.”
Both characters have been classified as “Light Side,” Scoundrel and “Attacker,” however “Resistance” is not a faction for either – yet. It will be interesting to see if they are indeed added to the Resistance faction since both helped the Resistance on Starkiller Base in The Force Awakens.
Details on both new characters is listed on the EA forums (links below):
