Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, The LEGO Group and Lucasfilm have announced an action strategy mobile game, “LEGO Star Wars Battles.”
“LEGO Star Wars Battles” was developed by TT Games Brighton and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment along with Playdemic. It allows players to use characters and vehicles from Star Wars to build a deck of the light side or dark side teams to battle in matches. Using touch controls, players can deploy troops and build LEGO towers on the battlefield and capture territory as they attempt to destroy their opponents’ base.
“We’re very proud to extend the LEGO Star Wars video game legacy with LEGO Star Wars Battles, a new experience built from the ground up for mobile devices,” says Jason Avent, studio head, TT Games Brighton. “We hope players will enjoy the unique combination of LEGO Star Wars with a deep strategy in deck building and innovative territory capture by constructing LEGO towers.”
The game features content from all nine films in the saga series, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” animated series, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Players can collect heroes and villains from the franchise such as Luke Skywalker, Rey, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Boba Fett and Darth Vader. Vehicles available from the series include AT-ATs, TIE bombers and the Millennium Falcon.
“For over 15 years, LEGO Star Wars video games have been offering a unique take on Star Wars, engaging and delighting fans around the world,” says Douglas Reilly, vice president, Lucasfilm Games. “We are thrilled to bring new LEGO Star Wars experiences to mobile audiences with ‘LEGO Star Wars Battles,’ which introduces new ways to play in a galaxy far, far away that is still uniquely LEGO.”
“LEGO Star Wars Battles” will be available at the App Store and Google Play in 2020 and for free with in-app purchases.
The game continues the LEGO Group’s strong relationship with the Star Wars franchise. The toymaker has previously launched a slew of video games and models based on the Star Wars property. Most recently, LEGO debuted special-edition Star Wars sets in honor of LEGO’s 20-year partnership with the series.
