Darth Nihilus Arrives in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes with Dark Side Game Update

The slightly delayed yet greatly anticipated Lords of Hunger event is now hitting the mobile market as we speak for Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. According to a tweet by Electronic Art’s Community Manager Jesse Anderson the update was supposed to release yesterday to coincide with Valentine’s Day but a few issues got in the way.

Peace is a lie. This February embrace your passion. Through passion you gain strength. Through strength you gain power, and with that power, the Dark side will rise victorious.

The officially titled Dark Side Game Update throws in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II’s Darth Nihilus among other dark side characters. Darth Nihilus will certainly synergize with other Sith when instantly defeating enemies by draining their cooldowns. There’s also a rework of Captain Phasma, Count Dooku, Darth Maul, Darth Sidious, Savage Opress and last but not least Darth Vader. Based on previous character events you can expect the Lords of Hunger event to put the brand new dark side heroes into your control and offer ways to collect their shards shortly after.

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is available as a free-to-play title on the iOS App and Google Play Store. Click here to view the entire list of changes coming in the Dark Side Game Update.
