Preregister on Android at the Google Play store or download it from the App Store if you're on iOS. Avoid taking damage by strategically utilizing your surroundings, targeting and destroying your enemies with mobile-optimized controls. You'll pick a team of heroes and bring them into battle with you against a real opponent. From Darth Vader to Captain Phasma, there's a mix of characters old and new. Additionally, players can enhance special skills like Darth Vader's Choke and Admiral Ackbar's Orbital Strike.

As the name of the game suggests, having rivals fight will earn players extra battle points.

Battle in Familiar Star Wars Locations: Use cover, elevation, and destructible environments to your advantage as you take down rivals in PvP arenas across familiar environments that span multiple Star Wars eras including Bespin, Scarif, Jakku, and the Death Star. Apparently, the rarer a hero is, the better will perform in the arenas.

"Star Wars: Rivals" doesn't have a release date yet, but players on Android can pre-register on the Google Play Store now and get exclusive access to Death Troopers, the black-armored elite troopers features in "Rogue One". On the other hand, iOS player will get exclusive access to Rebel Special Forces (SpecsForces) support units for a limited time when the game launches.

The game actually came out on iOS last December, but is only now coming to Android. The SpecForces are the most elite soldiers the Rebellion has to offer, fighting alongside the players in skirmishes and restoring health on the battlefield.

The game seems to have been built on the same pay-to-win system that now plagues Star Wars Battlefront 2 game, but if you haven't played it yet, here's how Star Wars: Rivals will work.
