While Star Wars fans wait anxiously until Star Wars Battlefront’s release next week, there is a way to earn in-game credits which you can spend on weapons, equipment, and other stuff, before the game’s officially out.
I’m of course, talking about the Star Wars Battlefront Companion app, which can be downloaded for iOS and Android devices right now. With DICE confirming that Battlefront won’t have micro-transactions, that means players who want advance credits in the actual game need to actually do well with the app. Oh, yes! It’s a game all its own.
Here’s the official description straight from the Google Play Store:
Play this strategic Star Wars™ card-game anytime, anywhere to earn Credits for Star Wars Battlefront. Use your Star Cards in Base Command to advance to new sieges as you take on increasingly powerful Imperial forces.

Are you planning on playing Base Command? Word is, it’s a good game all its own. I’ll definitely give it a go so I can buy some in-game stuff the moment I get my mitts on Battlefront this November 17.
