Star Wars: Rivals Mobile Game

Today, Lucasfilm and Disney officially announced Star Wars: Rivals — the first real-time Star Wars competitive action shooter for mobile devices. 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. The gameplay is rooted in cover-based PvP skirmishes where players build the ultimate team to challenge opponents in combat arenas.

Be sure to check out the screenshots of the game!

Key features include:

Compete in PvP Arenas: Dominate your opponents in this fast-paced PvP shooter as you challenge players cross-platform in real-time combat arenas. Avoid taking damage by strategically utilizing your surroundings, targeting and destroying your enemies with mobile-optimized controls. Swap your Heroes in-and-out during the heat of battle, instantly altering how the game is played.

Build the Ultimate Combat Team: Collect Heroes to assemble the ultimate team and unlock increasingly rare and powerful Heroes as you advance through Arena Leagues. Choose from a cast of legendary Heroes including Princess Leia, Poe Dameron, and Lando Calrissian — each with different roles that you mix and match to gain a tactical advantage.

Confront Your Rivals: Experience iconic rivalries from the Star Wars universe like Han Solo and Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, Finn and Captain Phasma, and more. Defeat rivals in combat to gain extra Battle Points and win faster as you ascend the leaderboards.

Master Iconic Weapons and Special Abilities: Rule the playing field with powerful weapons like Chewbacca’s bowcaster, Han Solo’s DL-44 pistol, and Boba Fett’s EE-3 carbine rifle. Master special abilities unique to the Star Wars universe like Darth Vader’s Choke and Admiral Ackbar’s devastating Orbital Strike.

Utilize Faction Bonuses: Form teams of the same faction like the Rebellion, Empire, First Order, and Underworld to gain faction bonuses for increased damage, health regeneration and more.

Battle in Familiar Star Wars Locations: Use cover, elevation, and destructible environments to your advantage as you take down rivals in PvP arenas across familiar environments that span multiple Star Wars eras including Bespin, Scarif, Jakku, and the Death Star.

Enlist in a Guild: Strategize with guildmates to climb the Arena leaderboards and claim Credits, Data Tapes, and Reward Crates to unlock featured Heroes and level up characters in your roster.

Star Wars: Rivals is available for pre-registration on Google Play now. Players who download from Google Play will get a special bonus: exclusive access to death trooper support units. Available for a limited time at launch, death troopers (Rogue One‘s black-armor clad elite Imperial forces) fight alongside players in PvP skirmishes using advanced weaponry to lay down cover fire. That’s something even Director Krennic would love.

Available On: Android, iPad, and iPhone
