Warner Bros. Games has announced that strategy game Lego Star Wars Battles will be revived as an Apple Arcade exclusive.
You might have heard of Lego Star Wars Battles, but it’s unlikely that many of our readers have played it. The multiplayer mobile strategy game was tested in several countries – including Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands – for two years before closing down in July. WB Games and TT Games Brighton have now announced that the game is returning, this time as an Apple Arcade exclusive.
As you might expect, the game features a host of iconic Lego Star Wars characters and vehicles, as well as locations including Scarif, Naboo, Hoth, Endor, and Geonosis.
As you might also expect, the game also involves collecting characters, unlocking locations, deploying troops, and assembling squads to send into battle. It’s typical stuff for a mobile strategy game. Thankfully, by being included with Apple Arcade, it will be free from the Dark Side of advertising and in-app purchases.
Speaking about the game, TT Games Brighton studio head Jason Avent says:
“Our team has been working to bring mobile players a new and wholly original LEGO Star Wars experience, exclusively on Apple Arcade LEGO Star Wars Battles blends real-time multiplayer matches, striking visuals and the charm of LEGO Star Wars in fun, fast-paced gameplay.”
The game will be playable across iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV. Apple Arcade subscriptions start at $4.99, and service is also available as part of Apple One’s Individual, Family, and Premier monthly plans.
Last week, WB Games also announced that Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be released for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in Spring 2022.
