Update: Now on Windows 8.1! Link below
The recently released iOS-based Clash of Clans-like action-strategy game Star Wars: Commander has now made its way to Windows Phone, allowing those owners to join either the Rebels or the Empire in this free-to-play title that's based on the classic Star Wars movie trilogy timeline.
Here's the quick bullet list of features (you can also watch the accompanying trailer):
- Choose your side: Will you command AT-ATs and TIE Fighters as the Empire? Or call on iconic heroes like Han Solo and Princess Leia as the Rebellion?
- Build and defend your base: Train unique troops specific to each faction, and fortify your base with deflector shields, turrets, heavy artillery, and other defenses!
- Lead epic battles: Strategically deploy powerful armies, units, and vehicles against enemies and players around the galaxy!
- Form the ultimate Squad: Build strong alliances with friends and other players!
- Travel to multiple planets and complete special missions: Play an all-new story as a valiant leader on the front lines of the Galactic Civil War.
- Upgrade your strike team and its defenses: Strengthen your forces with multiple levels of upgrades for each unit!
- Download now and play in your choice of English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish!
While the game is free, it does support in-app purchases for content. The bad news? This first release of the game does not support 512MB phones. Hopefully this will be dealt with in future updates. The game is also supposed to be released for Windows 8.1 as well but so far that has yet to go live in the Windows Store. We will update this post when that happens.
