'Star Wars: Rivals' Coming Soon To Mobile Devices, Adds PvP Combat Mode

Star Wars Rivals Action Shooter Announced for Android and iOS

Lenovo (YouTube) Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, the mobile VR/AR game from Lenovo that lets players become Jedi Knights and battle virtual enemies with a lightsaber, will add a free update in January 2018. It ...

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. The gameplay is rooted in cover-based PvP skirmishes where players build the ultimate team to challenge opponents in combat arenas. 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.

The game actually came out on iOS last December, but is only now coming to Android.

The idea behind the game seems to be reimagining and reliving classic Star Wars battles. By downloading Star Wars: Rivals from Google Play, Android owners will get access to Death Trooper support units while iOS owners get access to Rebel Special Forces support units when the game officially launches.

The patch for the vulnerable processors requires intervention on a feature that is directly meant to boost chip performance. Meltdown, Google explains , "breaks the most fundamental isolation between user applications and the operating system".

Players will also be able to form teams of the same faction like the Rebellion, Empire, First Order and Underworld.

As the name of the game suggests, having rivals fight will earn players extra battle points. This will grant players faction bonuses like increased damage and health regeneration. So, you can compete in PvP arenas by challenging players cross-platform in real-time combat.

Lucasfilm also applied for a trademark on Star Wars: Rivals on February 23, 2017. As reported by Touch Arcade, the game already had its soft launch in Australia a year ago in June.

We're not sure when Star Wars: Rivals mobile game will be launched on the App Store or Google Play, but Disney is offering some exclusive content to those who signup for pre-registration for the game.
