While this is not breaking news now after a series of teasers over the weekend stole much the thunder of the SWGoH GameChangers‘ announcement, it has been confirmed that Jango Fett will be the next character added to Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. Alongside the addition of Jango Fett, Zam Wesell is set to get a rework and Cad Bane’s ship, Xanadu Blood, will also be added to the game. The addition of Jango and rework of Zam has led to much discussion, including Smithie D’s thoughts that Padme Amidala will be added to SWGoH next in a Legendary event.
While the news of new characters is always of interest, the feedback from the community is clear as interest continues to wane given the long list of Marquee Events. The community continues to provide the feedback, so much so that popular GameChanger CubsFanHan released the hilarious Galaxy of Marquees music video in August which featured a cameo from AhnaldT101, Thad from GoingNerdy and our own Director of Content, LJ.
Details for Jango Fett, Xanadu Blood and the rework of Zam Wesell are below, and do not miss out on Gaming-fans.com’s recent addition on how to mod Jango Fett in SWGoH which is now live.
