Lucasfilm Games has announced a new Star Wars game they are developing with Zynga titled Star Wars: Hunters, and the first teaser trailer for it has been released! It sounds like it’ll be a fun game!
This is a competitive arena combat game, and it will bring players together to engage in thrilling, team-based, multiplayer battles featuring a diverse array of distinctive new Star Wars characters. Some of the new characters teased in the trailer include a wookiee warrior and a mysterious red lightsaber-wielding fighter as holograms.
Here’s a description for the game:
If you’ve ever dreamed of competing in a galactic arena, the roar of the cheering crowd in your ears, a new Star Wars game promises to capture that spirit with all-new characters and Star Wars-inspired locations.
Set after the fall of the Galactic Empire, Star Wars: Hunters will connect players in real time to battle in arena settings inspired by iconic Star Wars locales. Play as daring Bounty Hunters, heroes of the Rebellion, and an Imperial stormtrooper, in an action game that immerses players in fast-paced and visually stunning Star Wars conflict.
Douglas Reilly, VP of Lucasfilm Games said in a statement:
“Star Wars: Hunters draws inspiration from classic Star Wars stories and settings, but with a look and feel that is different from anything we have done before. We’re thrilled to introduce this wildly creative cast of characters to our fans on Nintendo Switch, where they can join with their friends in thrilling battles at home or on the go.”
Star Wars: Hunters will be available free to download for the Nintendo Switch, on the App Store and on Google Play later this year.
