It was only a fortnight ago that Lego Legacy: Heroes Unboxed was announced. But apparently, that simply wasn't enough Lego coming to mobile. Now we have Lego Star Wars Battles on its way too. It'll be a strategy game that's set to release on iOS and Android in 2020.
Lego Star Wars Battles will be a deck builder/strategy game hybrid where players will create a deck using light or dark side characters and vehicles from all eras of the Star Wars universe. The aim of the game will be to create Lego towers and defend them so you can slowly gain territory over your opponent.
This game mode will be available in one versus one multiplayer matches so you can take your strategy online to see how you fare against other people.
As mentioned it will feature characters from all nine saga films alongside Rogue One and The Clone Wars. This will give players a potentially gigantic roster to choose from covering characters as small as Porgs all the way to to the behemoths of the franchise like Darth Vader. Alongside the characters, the vehicles they drive will also make an appearance with everything from AT-ATs to the Millennium Falcon accounted for.
Of course, in Star Wars the locations are almost as iconic as the characters that inhabit them. So it's good to see there's plenty of variety there too. As players win battles and level up they will unlock new arenas to fight in that are all based on famous Star Wars locations. A few of these locales include Hoth, Scariff and Geonosis.
Lego Star Wars Battles will be available on both the App Store and Google Play sometime in 2020. It will be a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.Check out our news section to discover the latest, and greatest, games.
