Star Wars: Rivals is a PvP shooter coming soon to Android

You can even play as Jyn Erso or Director Krennic from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Lucasfilm and Disney have announced "Star Wars: Rivals", a new mobile game for Android and iOS devices. Get a first look in the screenshots below.

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

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

Players will battle it out in familiar surroundings like the Death Star and Jakku. You'll pick a team of heroes and bring them into battle with you against a real opponent. Since the game supports cross-platform play, we have a feeling that this could lead to some fun battles. From Darth Vader to Captain Phasma, there's a mix of characters old and new. You'll recognise a few of these like Chewbacca's bowcaster and Han Solo's DL-44 pistol.

Utilize Faction Bonuses: Form teams of the same faction like the Rebellion, Empire, First Order, and Underworld to gain faction bonuses for increased damage, health regeneration and more. Apparently, the rarer a hero is, the better will perform in the arenas. These include Bespin, Scarif, Jakku, and Death Star.

Star Wars: Rivals is now up for pre-registration on Google Play (Android) and has been soft-launched in the Philippines App Store (iOS). For players on iOS, they will get exclusive access to Rebel Special Forces support units when the game launches. Available for a limited time at launch, death troopers (Rogue One‘s black-armor clad elite Imperial forces) fight alongside players in PvP skirmishes using advanced weaponry to lay down cover fire. Like most action shooter games, Star Wars: Rivals is "free-to-play' but offers in-app purchases that cost anywhere between $4.99 and $99.99".
