Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes Developer Insights: Darth Revan

Te Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, CG_SBCrumb, sat down with CG_ParkingInstructor to discuss Darth Revan and where this character fits into Galaxy of Heroes. If you haven’t met CG_Parkinginstructor, he is a designer who mainly works on character creation and was the main designer on Darth Traya, Darth Sion, Chewbacca, and Ahsoka Tano (Fulcrum) among many others. OVERVIEW SBC: So who is the Darth Revan character?PI: Darth Revan is a dominant leader for the new Sith Empire faction and powers up a team by weakening its own defensive capabilities. Darth Revan will lead a very aggressive Sith Empire team that aims to take down enemies quickly but with a different approach than most. Darth Revan’s kit is focused on effectively taking down the enemy leader while applying beneficial debuffs. We think this will be a very powerful character with longevity in PvP and do fairly well in raids. Check out Darth Revan’s kit…

Star Wars Games: Top 5 Honourable Mentions

Star Wars games are like a fine wine – they only age better with time. But to be fair, the saga had its ups and downs throughout almost three decades of existence on the gaming market. Back in the mid-1990s and ‘00s, there have been more than two dozen Star Wars universe-themed games released explicitly for PC, and frankly, not every release fulfilled the developer expectations. Just like the movies, some games are remembered much more fondly than others. There’s even this common saying about the whole deal – for every beloved Star Wars game, there’s half-dozen of the ‘ehh’ ones. But today is not about the dark side of the Star Wars games industry. Today’s all about those all-time classics, amongst which, there’s even a game that, by some fans, is considered as being better than the entire film saga! Is the force still strong with such a bold…
