Yesterday, Disney announced a new turn-based combat game called Star Wars: Assault Team for mobile devices running on iOS, Android, and Windows 8.
The game involves collecting cards from the world of Star Wars and using them to defeat your opponents. During the course of battle, expect to re-visit locations from the trilogy.
The announcement came directly from Disney Interactive’s Tumblr and reads:
“Disney Interactive, in partnership with LucasArts, has announced limited early access to Star Wars: Assault Team, a new turn-based combat game for mobile devices with strategy and card-battle elements.
Collect classic characters from the Rebel Alliance and more to defeat enemies and players across the galaxy. Strategically deploy the team’s special tactics to battle through new graphically enhanced missions set throughout Star Wars planets and locations from the original trilogy.”
