Tiny Death Star Update Adds New Missions, Weekly Events

by Bryan Vore on Feb 06, 2014 at 05:00 AM

Aside from some minor tweaks and a special holiday event, there haven't been a whole lot of changes to Tiny Death Star since its November release. Now Disney Mobile is launching its first major content update sometime today. 

The update will include weekly timed special events similar to the holiday event in which players could earn a limited edition Boba Fett, an Imperial assignments system where players can receive over 100 new missions, and a new Cargo Bay floor where players can pick up new rewards for their efforts. The new goodies include VIPs, Imperial Bux, characters, and more. This marks the first time players can receive rewards outside of standard coins in the normal game.

Get a look at the new Cargo Bay in the image below.


Our Take:
I, and many others, maxed out my Tiny Death Star floors awhile ago so having something new to do is definitely welcome. However, I imagine that a certain amount of fans will be frustrated that this update does not include new business or apartment floors to actually expand the Death Star further. I'm also concerned, based on past Emperor missions, that these new missions will require me at some point to build new floors to proceed. Since this is impossible at my point in the game, I'll either be stuck until the next update or have to pay with coins or Bux to skip it. Let's hope that's not the case. It shouldn't be much longer today before we can find out ourselves.
