  • Star Wars: Rivals is PVP fun for your smartphone

Lucasfilm and Disney have announced "Star Wars: Rivals", a new mobile game for Android and iOS devices.

What's the appeal? Well, it's being able to, of course, play legendary characters and then pit them against each other in the Star Wars universe. Now up for pre-registration on Google Play, Star Wars: Rivals is a PvP title, all about ducking behind cover, moving to better positions, and blowing away your enemies.

Compete in PvP Arenas: Dominate your opponents in this fast-paced PvP shooter as you challenge players cross-platform in real-time combat arenas. The game also features some of the new characters that Disney introduced in "The Force Awakens" and "Rogue One", like Finn, Captain Phasma, Jyn Erson and Director Krennic. Swap your Heroes in-and-out during the heat of battle, instantly altering how the game is played. You'll pick a team of heroes and bring them into battle with you against a real opponent. As you advance in the Arena Leagues, you will be able to unlock increasingly rare and powerful heroes, including iconic characters like Princess Lei, Poe Dameron, and Lando Calrissian. You'll recognise a few of these like Chewbacca's bowcaster and Han Solo's DL-44 pistol.

Star Wars: Rivals take place in familiar places like the Death Star, Jakku, Bespin, Scarif, or Hoth.
