Every time Star Wars puts out new content, we, the fans, eat that up with a constant desire for more. But after playing this game daily for over 7 years I just do not look at Star Wars the same anymore. Yes, the passion and desire for more is always there, but while that is now a desire to see higher quality content (like the quality of The Mandalorian and Andor over the sequel trilogy), I now look at new content differently – with Galaxy of Heroes in mind. I find myself looking at the Star Wars Universe and figuring out how Season 3 of The Mandalorian will fit in. So here are a few characters we could, or even should, see in SWGoH as Season 3 concludes. Note that EA Capital Games follows a clear pattern of time before adding characters from new Star Wars content, so any new characters from Season 3 would still be “off-limits” for a few months while some of these names are already fair game. This may include spoilers if you have not seen the Season 3 finale, so read ahead at your own risk.
POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD
Paz Vizsla appeared all the way back in Season 1 of The Mandalorian and has been a fun supporting character throughout the series. Obviously a tank in SWGoH, he reminds me of Wrecker and could bring a lot of added survivability to the Mandalorian faction in the game. Add in a nice synergy with The Armorer and I can see a LOT of survivability with the Beskar Armor buff she provides.
This HAS to happen. Make IG-12 with Grogu in the belly a marquee CG and enjoy your profits. This will sell like cold lemonade on a hot summer day.
Moff Gideon (Beskar Armor)
Moff Gideon (Beskar Armor) appeared in his bad-ass armor in Episode 7 of Season 3 (Chapter 23 I believe) and just the ability to have an Imperial Remnant character like this could make that faction relevant over night.
Beskar Stormtroopers or whatever they are calling the jetpack Stormtroopers in Chapter 23 that joined Moff Gideon would be a fun addition to the Imperial Trooper and Imperial Remnant factions. I can see Moff Gideon (Beskar Armor) and the Beskar Stormtrooper both as marquee characters to unlock the new Bo-Katan mentioned below.
The Praetorian Guards were awesome in Episode 8 as their fight scene with Rey and Kylo Ren was the highlight of that movie. I believe that CG is looking to bring Snoke to the game at some point and is saving the Praetorian Guards for that specific timing. However, now that we have Imperial Remnant Praetorian Guards as well, they could create variants of these characters and use them in-game twice to build and bolster two separate factions.
Bo-Katan Kryze (Darksaber)
Don’t stone me or start throwing pieces of Beskar at me for this, but could Bo-Katan be a future Galactic Legend character in SWGoH? We know Disney likes the female heroes and Bo-Katan’s ascension to the top of the Mandalorian people as their leader is a big, big deal. Her line in Episode 7 about how Mandalorian always live on no matter who is in power basically foreshadows the fact that we will not have a good and bad future with Star Wars, there will always be a Mandalorian presence as well, and that makes the future content very exciting. Who better than the Mandalorian leader, many times over, as a Galactic Legend with the Darksaber?
