Overview: Start earning Star Wars Battlefront Credits early in Base Command
We are happy to announce that the Star Wars™ Battlefront™ Companion app, featuring the game Base Command, is now available. Télécharger the Companion on the Apple App Store™ and Google Play™ store. The Companion can also be accessed at StarWarsBattlefront.com.
As detailed in a previous post, the Companion app lets you connect with friends, track your Star Wars Battlefront career, and play the card-based game Base Command. In this post, we’d like to deep-dive into the gameplay of Base Command – and how playing it will earn you in-game Credits for use in Star Wars Battlefront.
SURVIVE THE SIEGE
Base Command is a lightweight card-based game that can be played with or without owning Star Wars Battlefront. Your objective is to defend a Rebel base under siege by the Empire. You’ll fight off the Imperial forces by playing Star Cards featuring the iconic vehicles, weapons, and power-ups from Star Wars Battlefront.
A mission in Base Command is called a Siege, and not without reason – Imperial forces are advancing on your base, determined to wipe it out. Each game turn in Base Command, the enemy units move closer to your base. By strategically playing your cards you can defeat the invading forces, survive to fight another siege, and collect your Credits payout.
PLAY UNIT CARDS AND STAR CARDS
Your line of defense in Base Command is two decks of cards. The first is a deck of Unit Cards, consisting of Rebel Soldiers, A-wings, T-47 airspeeders, and X-wings. Simply play a Unit Card on an enemy to engage in combat. Victory or defeat is determined by factors like the firepower, defense, and health values of the combatants. Each unit also has a set number of attacks that it will deliver, and combat is over when both units have made all of their attacks (or until one unit is defeated).
The deck of Star Cards are powerful boosts and strikes that can enhance your Unit Cards. One example is the Cycler Rifle card that you can play on a Rebel Soldier to increase its firepower value. Star Cards can also be used for direct attacks; Orbital Strike, for instance, deals massive damage in an entire sector of the board.
