During Star Wars Celebration, fans are invited to play the game and take a photo to show off their alliance to either the Empire or Rebellion. Fans will be able to share their faction choice by entering their phone number at an iPad station and text themselves the photo. Fans can then upload the image to any social channel, including Facebook and Twitter, with the hashtag #ImperialCommander OR #RebelCommander. Those who share their photo will also be able to display their faction by receiving, and wearing, a reversible Star Wars: Commander wristband.
In addition, attendees of Star Wars Celebration will be the first players to enjoy brand new, unreleased gameplay features. Fans will have to have to go to the booth and play to find out what they are.
