Today Disney has launched a new Star Wars game for mobile devices called Star Wars: Force Arena.
This free-to-play game let’s players compete in online versus battles of one-on-one or two-on-two. Collect cards to upgrade members of your squad, then build and customize your squad with just the right characters. Genre wise, the game seems to be somewhere between a real-time strategy, and a MOBA, so players can engage in real-time action gameplay, as opposed to the turn based gameplay found in many recent mobile Star Wars games.
Force Arena features over 80 notable heroes from the Star Wars universe such as Darth Vader, Han Solo, and Princes Leia Organa. In addition to classic characters, the game also features characters from Rogue One, including Jyn Erso and Grand Moff Tarkin.
The game does include in-app purchases that can provide players with new characters and units. Hopefully players won’t be able to gain an advantage simply by paying for bigger and better units or characters.
Star Wars: Force Arena is available now for iOS and Android devices.
