Announced this morning, LEGO Star Wars Battles is on the way, scheduled to hit Android and iOS in 2020.
From the app’s description, which is all we have right now, the game sounds similar to Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, where you build a team of Star Wars characters and then fight them against another player’s team. Here’s what the press release says.
LEGO Star Wars Battles allows players to mix and match characters and vehicles from all eras of the Star Wars galaxy, building a deck of light side or dark side forces to battle in fast-paced, competitive matches.
Featuring content from all nine saga films, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, players can collect iconic heroes and villains such as Luke Skywalker, Rey, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Boba Fett, and Darth Vader, along with characters such as Porgs, Stormtroopers, Battle Droids, and a variety of vehicles from AT-ATs to TIE bombers, and even the Millennium Falcon.
In Battles, we’ll see all of the characters, locations, and vehicles we hold dear from the Star Wars universe. For a Star Wars game, that’s about good enough for me. My only hope is that the mechanics of the “real-time multiplayer battles” are as good as Galaxy of Heroes.
We’ll keep you posted on this title.
