I have to admit that this news from the LEGO Star Wars front fell off from my radar. With the hype and excitement behind the upcoming LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga video game, I guess it’s kind of easy to be distracted and miss out on what LEGO has in store particularly on the mobile gaming platform. And starting next year, fans of LEGO mobile games can look forward to LEGO Star Wars Battles on their Android and Apple mobile devices, as announced over at StarWars.com.
This latest LEGO mobile game will feature a tower-building and defense gameplay, coupled with a huge collection of Star Wars characters and vehicles to collect. It’s a pretty cool idea to see all your favorite SW characters (including newer ones from the upcoming Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker) mashed-up in a hilarious, brick-built battleground. Check out the LEGO Star Wars Battles official press release below.
LEGO STAR WARS BATTLES LETS YOU ENTER THE BRICK ARENA
THE NEW MOBILE GAME, AVAILABLE IN 2020, BRINGS TOGETHER EVERY ERA OF STAR WARS STORYTELLING TO COLLECT, BUILD, AND FIGHT IN THE GREATEST LEGO STAR WARS BATTLES THE GALAXY HAS EVER SEEN.
What happens when an Ewok takes on a Tusken Raider? Can a flock of porgs tackle a stormtrooper in a standoff? Who would win in a showdown between Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett?
This is LEGO Star Wars Battles, a new mobile game that combines competitive combat, character collecting, and tower building with the classic charm and humor of LEGO. Lead an army of LEGO Star Wars characters into real-time multiplayer PvP battles in arenas inspired by iconic locations from throughout the galaxy. Collect and upgrade characters and vehicles and craft both light and dark side armies to take into battle. Build LEGO towers on the battlefield to strategically combat, defend, and capture territory as you push toward the enemy base to claim victory.
The newly announced game allows players to visit some of the most beloved locations throughout the galaxy across different arenas, including the tropical planet of Scarif, never before shown in a LEGO Star Wars video game.
Join forces with heroes or villains, mastering both the light side or the dark side, with some never before rendered in a LEGO Star Wars video game including Rey and Kylo Ren in costumes from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the First Order’s BB-9E, and a Duros rebel trooper.
Collect and upgrade over 40 units featuring characters, vehicles, and troops from Star Wars film and animation. Discover Champion characters such as Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Yoda, and more, each with a unique ability that can be triggered on the battlefield at your command. Use Darth Vader’s Force Slam to smash enemies into the ground or toss them aside with Luke Skywalker’s Force Push. Plus, support your characters with unconventional battalions including battle droids, AT-STs, Ewoks, and even a flock of porgs.
Engage in thrilling head-to-head matches against other players in a fight to destroy the enemy’s base by deploying troops onto the battlefield to claim territory and strategically utilizing Champion units and LEGO towers. With the right troops and towers, you can create an unstoppable army that will leave your enemies in pieces!
Finally, Yoda can team up with a flock of porgs to take on an army of the dark side.
LEGO Star Wars Battles will be available in 2020 on the App Store and Google Play.
