Lead your squad and master the arena in Star Wars™: Force Arena
Netmarble joins forces with Lucasfilm Ltd. for a completely new Star Wars™ experience on mobile The real-time PvP game launches pre-registration today to players around the world
SEOUL, Korea – November 17, 2016 – Netmarble Games Corp., the fastest-growing mobile game company in Asia, in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd, today announced the development of Star Wars™: Force Arena, a real-time PvP game based on the globally popular Star Wars franchise. The free-to-play real-time PvP game optimized for the mobile environment will feature over 65 iconic characters, vehicles, and units upon its global launch.
Star Wars: Force Arena takes place within the Star Wars universe and allows players to choose between the Rebellion or the Empire and command a squad of units to battle against each other in real-time. Players can build squads by recruiting characters with different skill and attack abilities with character cards that can be acquired after each battle and upgraded to strengthen the squad.
Dominating your opponents in the arena will grant top leaderboard placement for rewards, special characters, and bonus items. Strategy and skill will be put to the test as players can build customized decks of characters that feature legendary duos, such as Han Solo and Chewbacca, which boost effectiveness in combat. Leveraging this duo advantage effectively could mean the difference between victory and defeat.
Compete with your favorite iconic characters such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Darth Vader, Ezra Bridger, and more. In Star Wars: Force Arena players can form unique squads providing seemingly endless ways to play. The game also has various modes of play to choose from, such as single player, training, and real-time 1v1 or 2v2 multiplayer.
“We are thrilled to announce Star Wars: Force Arena, a real-time PvP mobile game based on the globally popular Star Wars franchise,” said Seungwon Lee, Chief Marketing Officer of Netmarble Games. “We hope to bring the same level of excitement to the mobile arena that Star Wars has given its fans around the world.
