EA has released the official Star Wars Battlefront companion app for Android, which enables those in a galaxy far, far away to prepare for battle in the upcoming title. The app itself features a strategic card game called Base Command, and allows you to earn in-game credits that can be used to unlock Star Cards and more in the full title.

As well as earning credits and flipping cards, the companion app for Star Wars: Battlefront includes features that tap into game statistics and progression for user accounts. Troops can connect with fellow team mates and be notified when they're playing Battlefront, not to mention inspect their stats to see just how they match up.

If you're looking to take on the Empire or squash the Rebellion, you'll need this companion app. Give it a download and let us know what you think.
