The Lego Star Wars Battles is back and it’s going to be exclusive to the Apple Arcade. It is being developed by TT Game Brighton and published by Warner Bros. Games.

The game was first announced back in September 2019 and was planned to be released on Android and iOS. Despite the excitement, Star Wars fans were surprised when it was revealed back in May that the game was shutting down by July 1. At that time, it was to be published by Playdemic, which has since been acquired by EA.

It’s definitely good news that the game is back. However, it will be difficult to access the game since it’s limited to iOS. In addition, there’s extra money needed to subscribe to the Apple Arcade service. There’s a one-month free trial for the service but the monthly subscription cost is $4.99.

The game gives players access to characters, vehicles, and locations from the Lego Star Wars universe and then puts all of them in real-time multiplayer battles. For those wondering, characters include not only those from the Star Wars series but even from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. That means a chance to control porgs, stormtroopers, and battle droids. There are also the likes of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, Rey, Boba Fett, and Darth Vader.

Players can also try out different vehicles like AT-ATs, TIE bombers, and even the Millennium Falcon. As players progress and level up, they unlock different areas, including Scarif, Naboo, Hoth, Endor, and Geonosis.

By now it should be clear that the game allows players to master both sides of the Force. That should offer some interesting combinations.

In a statement, TT Games Brighton Studio Head Jason Avent shared that the team has been working hard to offer an original Lego Star Wars experience. He went on to say that the game has real-time multiplayer matches, excellent visuals, and fast-paced gameplay of the Lego Star Wars.
