Electronics Arts has released the free companion app for Star Wars Battlefront. The app lets you track progress and stats, displays the Star Cards, Blasters, and Credits that you've unlocked, and lets you customize your character.
In addition, the app includes Base Command, a strategic card game that pits the player against Imperial enemies. In this mini-game you can use your Star Cards from Star Wars Battlefront to compete in sieges in order to earn more credits. These credits can be used to purchase new Star Cards, Blasters, and more in the main game.
"Whether you're in a galaxy far, far away or closer to home, get ready for battle with the official Star Wars Battlefront Companion app," The description reads. "Featuring the strategic card-game, Base Command, the Companion lets you earn in-game Credits that unlock Star Cards, blasters, and more in Star Wars Battlefront. In addition to Base Command, the Star Wars Battlefront Companion also lets players check game stats and progression, customize hands and appearance, connect with friends, and get notified when they're playing Star Wars Battlefront - as well as gather intel on their stats and progress so you can see how you match up!"
SW Battlefront Companion is available to download for free now for Android and iOS devices, and Base Command is also available on the Star Wars Battlefront website.
