You can now work towards unlocking characters like Finn, Rey, and Kylo Ren. However, you won't have to do anything past signing in to receive a new character from The Force Awakens.

Apple device users will get X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron and a First Order Stormtrooper for free, while Android users will unlock the chromed-out Captain Phasma and a Resistance Trooper.

There's currently an event to see who can unlock Kylo Ren first by collecting character shards, but the game is also offering to sell him to you in a bundle for $99.99 for a limited time. That bundle includes characters Kylo Ren and Finn, 50 character shards each for Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma, 40 three-star Training Droids, and 300,000 credits. The offered bundle ends on December 24.

The new additions join characters from the Star Wars movies, television shows, and video games. Knights of the Old Republic fans might recognize the assassin droid HK-47.

The full list of characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens can be found below:

  • Finn: Resistance Tank that keeps the pressure up with a balance between offense and defense
  • Kylo Ren: Versatile First Order attacker that evades projectiles and can reuse special attacks when damaged
  • Captain Phasma: High damage leader that can grant First Order allies many extra attacks
  • Poe Dameron: Resistance Tank with a Taunt that inflicts Expose for big reversals
  • Rey: Risky Attacker with high damage and evasion, but is vulnerable to debuffs
  • First Order Stormtrooper: First Order Tank that uses Advantage to disrupt enemies
  • First Order Officer: First Order support that grants Advantage and can manipulate both ally and enemy Turn Meters
