Star Wars Battlefront Companion App Now Available

Earn some extra credit with Battlefront’s new app

Star Wars Battlefront

Although Star Wars Battlefront won’t be hitting shelves until November the 17th, EA has decided to roll out the game’s companion app a little early. The app, conveniently named ‘Star Wars Battlefront Companion’ is available to download at no cost on iOS, Android, and the web.

As one may expect, Battlefront Companion features a stat tracker, allowing players to check their progress and the progress of friends. But wait, there’s more! App users may also view their in-game card collection, customize the in-game load-out, and send and receive game invites.

Interestingly enough, the Battlefront app also features a mini-game. The game, named Base Command, seems to be a tower defense/card-based hybrid that challenges players to protect their Rebel bases from waves of Imperial Troops. By playing this game players can collect weapons, represented by Star Cards, power-ups, vehicles, and more. Credits can also be earned that can be used in both Battlefront, and Battlefront Companion. Credits in Battlefront itself may also be used in both.

EA has stressed that there will be absolutely no microtransactions in Base Command – a rarity for the company – and assures that all acquired Star Cards will remain in the player’s deck.

Downloading the app is as simple as searching your app store; get a head start while you can.

 

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
