In the wake of the LEGO Group’s 2019’s midyear financial report, they have also quietly announced a brand new LEGO game for the mobile.
LEGO Star Wars Battles is an online multiplayer mobile game which allows you to collect and upgrade LEGO Star Wars characters to do battle with each other.
This would mark the third online multiplayer game that was announced by LEGO this year with the previous being LEGO Tower and LEGO Legacy Unboxed.
The game will launch in 2020 which if you think about it, is only a few months away. It will be available on both iOS and Android platforms.
Here is the full press release:
What happens when an Ewok takes on a Tusken Raider? Can a flock of porgs tackle a stormtrooper in a standoff? Who would win in a showdown between Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett?
This is LEGO Star Wars Battles, a new mobile game that combines competitive combat, character collecting, and tower building with the classic charm and humor of LEGO. Lead an army of LEGO Star Wars characters into real-time multiplayer PvP battles in arenas inspired by iconic locations from throughout the galaxy. Collect and upgrade characters and vehicles and craft both light and dark side armies to take into battle. Build LEGO towers on the battlefield to strategically combat, defend, and capture territory as you push toward the enemy base to claim victory.
The newly announced game allows players to visit some of the most beloved locations throughout the galaxy across different arenas, including the tropical planet of Scarif, never before shown in a LEGO Star Wars video game.
Join forces with heroes or villains, mastering both the light side or the dark side, with some never before rendered in a LEGO Star Wars video game including Rey and Kylo Ren in costumes from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the First Order’s BB-9E, and a Duros rebel trooper inspired by Star Wars Battlefront.
Collect and upgrade over 40 units featuring characters, vehicles, and troops from Star Wars film and animation. Discover Champion characters such as Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Yoda, and more, each with a unique ability that can be triggered on the battlefield at your command. Use Darth Vader’s Force Slam to smash enemies into the ground or toss them aside with Luke Skywalker’s Force Push. Plus, support your characters with unconventional battalions including battle droids, AT-STs, Ewoks, and even a flock of porgs.
Engage in thrilling head-to-head matches against other players in a fight to destroy the enemy’s base by deploying troops onto the battlefield to claim territory and strategically utilizing Champion units and LEGO towers. With the right troops and towers, you can create an unstoppable army that will leave your enemies in pieces!
Finally, Yoda can team up with a flock of porgs to take on an army of the dark side.
LEGO Star Wars Battles will be available in 2020 on the App Store and Google Play.
