In a galaxy not so far away, Lucasfilm and Disney had recently announced their upcoming mobile game, Star Wars: Rivals! The game will be the first real-time Star Wars competitive action shooter game on mobile.
Unlike other Star Wars games that’s been out for mobile, this time, we might say Lucasfilm and Disney has done it right. The game features legendary clashes based off the universe with an all-star lineup of character rosters from multiple eras of Star Wars. Players will be able to experience the saga’s most epic clashes on mobile. As seen in the screenshots below, players will be playing against other players in a PvP skirmish alongside their teammates.
Below are some of the Key Features included:
Compete in PvP Arenas: Dominate your opponents in this fast-paced PvP shooter as you challenge players cross-platform in real-time combat arenas.

Build the Ultimate Combat Team: Collect Heroes to assemble the ultimate team and unlock increasingly rare and powerful Heroes as you advance through Arena Leagues. Choose from a cast of legendary Heroes including Princess Leia, Poe Dameron, and Lando Calrissian — each with different roles that you mix and match to gain a tactical advantage.
Confront Your Rivals: Experience iconic rivalries from the Star Wars universe like Han Solo and Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, Finn and Captain Phasma, and more. Defeat rivals in combat to gain extra Battle Points and win faster as you ascend the leaderboards.
