Disney continues to capitalize on the Star Wars franchise and what better way to keep fans entertained than another Star Wars mobile game.

Star Wars: Rivals is being marketed as "the first real-time Star Wars competitive action shooter for mobile devices", and as someone that hasn't been all that interested in previous Star Wars mobile games, this might be the first to get my attention. Swap your Heroes in-and-out during the heat of battle, instantly altering how the game is played.

App Store users will get exclusive access to Rebel Special Forces (SpecForces) support units for a limited time when the game launches.

As a big Star Wars fan, Disney buying Lucasfilm has been great. Arenas/ environments on the game are similar to those previously seen in Star Wars.

Lucasfilm also applied for a trademark on Star Wars: Rivals on February 23, 2017.

Star Wars: Rivals is a cover-based third-person shooter. For example, you'll experience Darth Vader vs. Luke Skywalker, Jyn Erso against Director Krennic, as well as Finn vs. Captain Phasma. "Available for a limited time at launch, death troopers (Rogue One's black-armour clad elite Imperial forces) fight alongside players in PvP skirmishes using advanced weaponry to lay down cover fire", the announce blog post reads.

Star Wars: Rivals take place in familiar places like the Death Star, Jakku, Bespin, Scarif, or Hoth. Since the game supports cross-platform play, we have a feeling that this could lead to some fun battles. Master special abilities unique to the Star Wars universe like Darth Vaders Choke and Admiral Ackbars devastating Orbital Strike. You'll also form factions like the Rebellion, Empire, First Order, or Underworld to gain bonuses like increase damage or faster health regeneration.
