For those who are fans of the Star Wars franchise and wouldn't mind playing Star Wars-related games on their mobile devices, you'll be interested to learn that Disney has announced a new game called Star Wars: Rivals, an action shooter title that will be available for both iOS and Android 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", Lucasfilm and Disney said in a post published on the official "Star Wars" website. Players can unlock rare Heroes including popular characters like Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, and Poe Dameron, each with different traits in the game. You'll unlock them as you progress through each of the arenas.

As the name of the game suggests, having rivals fight will earn players extra battle points. You'll recognise a few of these like Chewbacca's bowcaster and Han Solo's DL-44 pistol. Master special abilities unique to the Star Wars universe like Darth Vaders Choke and Admiral Ackbars devastating Orbital Strike.


Star Wars: Rivals is now up for pre-registration on Google Play (Android) and has been soft-launched in the Philippines App Store (iOS).

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. You'll get exclusive access to death trooper support units. The SpecForces are the most elite soldiers the Rebellion has to offer, fighting alongside the players in skirmishes and restoring health on the battlefield.

Star Wars: Rivals take place in familiar places like the Death Star, Jakku, Bespin, Scarif, or Hoth.
