Strategy is required in the game, as the aim is to destroy your opponent's base, so you will need to be quick in building Lego towers, deploying troops across the battlefield and taking control of your favorite heroes and villains. 

Players will be able to choose characters from a range of eras across the "Star Wars" universe, including all three trilogies, "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Rogue One." That means playable characters will include Luke Skywalker, Rey, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader as well as Porgs, Stormtroopers, battle droids and more. 

Playable vehicles include AT-ATs, TIE Bombers and even The Millenium Falcon. As players level up, more arenas will become available, including Scarif, Hoth, Naboo, Endor, Geonosis and more. 

Because the game is available on Apple Arcade, it will be playable across iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV.
