Disney announces Star Wars: Rivals, a PvP shooter for Android and iOS

Star Wars: Rivals is being marketed as "the first real-time Star Wars competitive action shooter for mobile devices", and as someone that hasn't been all that interested in previous Star Wars mobile games, this might be the first to get my attention.

Disney and Lucasfilm has announced the upcoming Star Wars: Rivals, a third person shooter featuring your favourite characters from the franchise.

Players will battle it out in familiar surroundings like the Death Star and Jakku.

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

Though, that shouldn't be too surprising for Star Wars fans to find out, as Disney is always looking to make some money. The gameplay offers several combat arenas to fight battles using the characters offered in the mobile game. Will Star Wars: Rivals become a successful mobile game for Disney/Lucasfilms?

Lucasfilm also applied for a trademark on Star Wars: Rivals on February 23, 2017. Though, a lot of people are speculationg Lucasfilms will release Star Wars: Rivals as an animated show. We've seen mentions of new characters like Finn and Phasma, as well as classics like Han, Luke, Leia, Vader, and Chewie from the original. Master special abilities unique to the Star Wars universe like Darth Vaders Choke and Admiral Ackbars devastating Orbital Strike. Jyn Erso versus Director Krennic. Defeat rivals in combat to gain extra Battle Points and win faster as you ascend the leaderboards.

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

Preregister on Android at the Google Play store or download it from the App Store if you're on iOS.

Star Wars: Rivals is available for pre-registration on Google Play now. Users on iOS get access to Rebel Special Forces, the most elite soldiers in the Rebellion if they register now.
