StarWars.com has officially announced a new Star Wars competitive action shooter game for mobile devices. The game title is "Rivals" .

Check out the details below, and  head on over to the Rivals website for more information and to pre-register for access to the game.

Edit: Here is an invite link if you want to be a beta tester.

Luke Skywalker versus Darth Vader. Jyn Erso versus Director Krennic. Finn versus Captain Phasma. Salacious Crumb versus R2-D2. Finally, there’s a game celebrating the iconic rivalries of a galaxy far, far away. (Well, except that last one.)

The gameplay is rooted in cover-based PvP skirmishes where players build the ultimate team to challenge opponents in combat arenas. Get a first look in the screenshots below.

Key features include:

Compete in PvP Arenas: Dominate your opponents in this fast-paced PvP shooter as you challenge players cross-platform in real-time combat arenas. Avoid taking damage by strategically utilizing your surroundings, targeting and destroying your enemies with mobile-optimized controls. Swap your Heroes in-and-out during the heat of battle, instantly altering how the game is played.

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.

Master Iconic Weapons and Special Abilities: Rule the playing field with powerful weapons like Chewbacca’s bowcaster, Han Solo’s DL-44 pistol, and Boba Fett’s EE-3 carbine rifle. Master special abilities unique to the Star Wars universe like Darth Vader’s Choke and Admiral Ackbar’s devastating Orbital Strike.

Utilize Faction Bonuses: Form teams of the same faction like the Rebellion, Empire, First Order, and Underworld to gain faction bonuses for increased damage, health regeneration and more.

Battle in Familiar Star Wars Locations: Use cover, elevation, and destructible environments to your advantage as you take down rivals in PvP arenas across familiar environments that span multiple Star Wars eras including Bespin, Scarif, Jakku, and the Death Star.

Enlist in a Guild: Strategize with guildmates to climb the Arena leaderboards and claim Credits, Data Tapes, and Reward Crates to unlock featured Heroes and level up characters in your roster.

Star Wars: Rivals is available for pre-registration on Google Play now. Players who download from Google Play will get a special bonus: exclusive access to death trooper support units. Available for a limited time at launch, death troopers (Rogue One‘s black-armor clad elite Imperial forces) fight alongside players in PvP skirmishes using advanced weaponry to lay down cover fire. That’s something even Director Krennic would love.

App Store users will get exclusive access to Rebel Special Forces (SpecForces) support units for a limited time when the game launches. The SpecForces are the most elite soldiers the Rebellion has to offer, fighting alongside the players in skirmishes and restoring health on the battlefield.

Prepare to take on your Star Wars rivals…anywhere you go.
