Like Imperial clockwork, Star Wars: Assault Team has landed on Android, iOS, and Windows Phone as scheduled. The game lets players assemble a Star Wars dream-team, comprised of Luke, Han Solo, Boba Fett, Chewbaka, Leya... we can go on like this for too long, so let's cut to the lightsaber fights, shall we.
Assault Team is a card-based action game that offers combat-ridden missions, which form a storyline set between Star Wars Episodes IV and V. Disney (owner of the SW franchise) has revealed that you will "escape enemy ships, find the Wookie resistance, survive ambushes on the streets of Mos Espa, and much more." Additional locations that players will visit are Tatooine and Kashyyyk. Well, sounds like a trip!
Bear in mind, though, that Assault Team is not a visceral first or third-person shooter, but a card-game. Still, it's an especially flashy, action-driven one. Instead of cards, you will deal actual lightsaber blows, Force tricks, and laser wounds to Imperial troops and interstellar fiends. Tusken Raiders? Oh, yeah! They tortured and killed momma Anakin, after all, so we're glad to punish them at every occasion.
In addition, Assault Team features character leveling, PvP combat, and possibly Darth Vader. Hopefully his presence isn't limited to the trailer. Regardless, Assault Team is definitely a different Star Wars experience that looks like it's worth a try. The game is free, but it expects you to take out your wallet for in-app purchases. We thought the Empire would accept only Imperial Credits, but it looks like dollars will do just fine. After all, there are Death Stars to be built, and these come at cost.
And with this, our barely-in-control bout of Star Wars geekery ends. But feel free to carry on by downloading the game from the link below.
