'Can a flock of porgs take down a stormtrooper? We’ll soon find out.

Warner Bros. Games, The LEGO Group, and Lucasfilm Games today announced LEGO Star Wars Battles, a new action-strategy game coming soon exclusively to Apple Arcade, Apple’s popular game subscription service. Featuring real-time, PvP multiplayer battles, fans can have the minifigure matchups of their dreams.

In addition, players can collect and upgrade LEGO Star Wars characters, troops, and vehicles from across the Star Wars saga to build their own army; they’ll also build LEGO towers on the battlefield to strategically attack, defend, and capture territory. Heroes and villains will have their own unique abilities, from Darth Vader’s Force Slam to Luke Skywalker’s Force Push, while locales range from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace‘s Naboo to Hoth from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.’

 

 

LEGO Star Wars Battles will return as an Apple Arcade exclusive after shutting down in July’:-

So the ‘Lego Star Wars: Battles’ game that was released in 2019 and available on all mobile platforms, is cancelled (and players were told to spend any in-game currency before the closing date), yet is then re-released as a ‘new’ game just a couple of months after cancellation… and is now only made available to the monthly subscription service on Apple Arcade.

That’s pretty shite.
