Please help me figure out the meaning of the following sentence from the description of the game "Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes":
Recent updates to the late game allow your Empire team to go to the next level courtesy of a revamped Mod system that gives players even more agency over how their characters turn out.
I am confused by the phrases "late game" and "next level".
One of the answers received on another forum suggests that the phrase "late game" means "final part of the game". My confusion is that if the phrase "late game" means "final part", the phrase "next level" must mean "new height" because there can be no next level (in a literal sense) if the player is in the final part. However, I am not sure about this.
Is it possible that the phrase "new level" concerns rich customization options available to players?
Thank you for your time.
