Thanks to EA & CG’s GameChangers program, Gaming-fans.com is please to bring you the latest update details which sees two new characters added to SWGoH and two recent additions who will become Free To Play (FTP). Joining the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes community will be two new Resistance characters from The Last Jedi – Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo and Rose Tico. The kits for both characters are listed below. Holdo is described as a “Seasoned Resistance Tank with powerful ally support and enemy debuffs” while Tico joins the Resistance described in-game as “A brave Resistance Attacker who can Stun and grant allies buffs.”
Both Resistance characters will join SWGoH on January 27th as past of the Spark of the Resistance events and both will have separate packs (for 1,299 crystals) as well as separate bundles which will allow players to buy 25 shards along with ability materials and gear to power the new toons up.
In addition to the two new characters coming to SWGoH, two of the more recent additions, Kylo Ren Unmasked and First Order Special Forces TIE Pilot will now be Free To Play (FTP). KRU and his TIE Silencer (or TIE Slicer as Cubs Fan Han likes to call it) will be farmable on Cantina node 3-F, while FOSFTP and his TIE Fighter will be available in the Guild Store.

What’s Ahead in SWGoH?
