Developed by TT Games Brighton and published by Warner Bros. Games, LEGO Star Wars Battles allows players to mix and match characters and vehicles from across the Star Wars galaxy to create unstoppable squads. Strategy is required to deploy troops and build LEGO towers on the battlefield as they attempt to destroy their opponent’s base. Players will master both sides of the Force with a deck of light side and dark side armies, each with their own play style.
 
“LEGO Star Wars Battles offers fans a new way to experience the playful appeal of LEGO Star Wars on their Apple devices,” said Jason Avent, Studio Head, TT Games Brighton. “It’s easy to pick-up and play while also offering deep strategy in deck building and innovative territory capture for more experienced players.”

As players progress and level up, they will unlock different arenas based on familiar Star Wars environments, including Scarif, Naboo, Hoth, Endor, Geonosis, and more.
 
Playable across iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV, the game will be available exclusively on Apple Arcade for a low monthly subscription of £4.99 with a one-month free trial. Apple Arcade is also part of Apple One’s Individual (£14.95), Family (£19.95), and Premier (£29.95) monthly plans, with a one-month free trial. *
