Warner Bros. Games, in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games and the LEGO Group, announced today that LEGO Star Wars Battles, a new action strategy game, is coming exclusively to Apple Arcade, Apple’s game subscription service ($4.99/month). The game blends iconic Star Wars characters, vehicles, and locations with real-time, one-versus-one multiplayer battles. From WB Games:
Developed by TT Games Brighton and published by Warner Bros. Games, LEGO Star Wars Battles allows players to mix and match characters and vehicles from all eras of the Star Wars galaxy to create unstoppable squads. Strategy is required to deploy troops and build LEGO towers on the battlefield as they attempt to destroy their opponent’s base. Players will master both sides of the Force with a deck of light side and dark side armies, each with their own play style.
Featuring characters and locales from all Star Wars eras, 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. As players progress and level up, they will unlock different arenas based on familiar Star Wars locales, including Scarif, Naboo, Hoth, Endor, Geonosis, and more.
Jason Avent, studio head of TT Games Brighton, said in a statement:
“Our team has been working to bring mobile players a new and wholly original LEGO Star Wars experience, exclusively on Apple Arcade. LEGO Star Wars Battles blends real-time multiplayer matches, striking visuals and the charm of LEGO Star Wars in fun, fast-paced gameplay.”
No release date has been announced for the game. This is not the only Star Wars game coming our way from LEGO, as in Spring 2022, the highly-anticipated LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is supposed to be released.
