Disney and Lucasfilm has announced the upcoming Star Wars: Rivals, a third person shooter featuring your favourite characters from the franchise.
It’s competitive, so all of your battles are online. You’ll pick a team of heroes and bring them into battle with you against a real opponent.
Battles involve strategically dashing from cover to cover as you trade fire with your opponent. At any moment, you can swap between your heroes to change your approach.
Star Wars: Rivals is an upcoming competitive cover shooter
As you can expect, pretty much all of your favourite characters feature. You’ll unlock them as you progress through each of the arenas.
Not only are there a bunch of characters to unlock, there are also weapons too. You’ll recognise a few of these like Chewbacca’s bowcaster and Han Solo’s DL-44 pistol.
Finally, there are a bunch of recognisable locations from the movies as well. You’ll fight in Bespin, Scarif, and even the Death Star itself, amongst others.
Star Wars: Rivals is already available for pre registration on Google Play, so head on over there if you’re interested. You’ll get exclusive access to death trooper support units.
