You’ll be able to choose from a number of different classes that differ according to your preferred playstyle. The Damage class is naturally better at dealing several heavy attacks, while Support is better equipped to heal teammates and lengthen the duration of battles. Finally, Tank characters can decimate multiple foes together and are great at drawing attention away from others.

Why not take a peek at our first impressions of Star Wars Hunters before you go on?

The title will feature several game modes, each offering something different from the last. Dynamic Control and Power Control are similar to capture the flag and teams are tasked with controlling areas and holding them to gain points. Then there’s Squad Brawl where the first team to reach 20 eliminations wins, whereas in Trophy Chase, the first squad who manages to hold the TR0-F33 droid wins.
