Lucasfilm and Disney just announced a brand-new game called Star Wars: Rivals that has me genuinely hyped. The gameplay offers several combat arenas to fight battles using the characters offered in the mobile game.
"Highlighting legendary clashes, the character roster is an all-star lineup spanning multiple eras of Star Wars, allowing players to experience the saga's most famous conflicts", Lucasfilm and Disney said in a post published on the official "Star Wars" website.
The real-time PVP element will also appeal to those who want the fun of being able to play against actual players.
All characters come with their own weapons and special abilities that players will have to learn to master, such as Darth Vader's Force choke and Han Solo's DL-44 blaster.
Though, that shouldn't be too surprising for Star Wars fans to find out, as Disney is always looking to make some money. We've seen mentions of new characters like Finn and Phasma, as well as classics like Han, Luke, Leia, Vader, and Chewie from the original.
Star Wars: Rivals take place in familiar places like the Death Star, Jakku, Bespin, Scarif, or Hoth. This will grant players faction bonuses like increased damage and health regeneration. As you advance in the Arena Leagues, you will be able to unlock increasingly rare and powerful heroes, including iconic characters like Princess Lei, Poe Dameron, and Lando Calrissian.
There is no shortage of Star Wars things these days, especially games, and it looks like we're getting yet another one for Android very soon.
Star Wars: Rivals is now up for pre-registration on Google Play (Android) and has been soft-launched in the Philippines App Store (iOS). Users on iOS get access to Rebel Special Forces, the most elite soldiers in the Rebellion if they register now.
