won’t arrive until next spring, but another game from the franchise is coming soon — and it’s an Apple Arcade exclusive. Lego Star Wars Battles is a real-time strategy game that pits players against each other in one-on-one showdowns.
You’ll amass a collection of upgradable characters, troops and vehicles from all eras of the Star Wars universe. You’ll be able to pit porgs against Boba Fett, for instance. Don’t expect to stick to one side of the Force — you’ll have a deck of light side and dark side armies, with different play styles for each. You’ll have a number of abilities at your disposal too, such as Darth Vader’s Force Slam and Luke Skywalker’s Force Push.
Battlefields will feature Lego towers that you’ll build, defend, attack and use to claim territory. The locations include some familiar environments, including Hoth, Naboo and Endor.
TT Games Brighton is developing Lego Star Wars Battles, while Warner Bros. Games is the publisher. It won’t be the first Lego game to hit Apple Arcade, though. Lego Brawls and Lego Builder’s Journey both landed on the service in 2019. The latter was in June.
