Konami just announced a brand new Star Wars card battling game for iOS and Android. It's called Star Wars: Force Collection,. The game will feature "more than 230 heroes, villains, and vehicles from all six episodes" which will be used to build decks to complete quests, participate in "massive battle events," and there's even a light and dark side system.
The game uses video footage, music and sound effects from the Star Wars films and has a questing and card battling component. On the questing side, players will be able to take a lead character card to one of six planets and explore the areas on the planets. While questing, players will encounter enemies who they have to fight, and these fights take the form of the player using energy points to perform attacks. Upon winning, players can gain experience and earn cards.
In the meatier card battle mode, players will create their decks and take them into battle against real-life opponents. The game has more than 230 heroes, villains and vehicles from Star Wars Episodes 1-6, and each character has different stats, strengths and abilities. These individual cards can also be enhanced by spending crystals (which is the in-game currency that can be earned through battles or bought with cash), or they can be evolved by merging more than one of the same card. Players can buy additional cards with crystals or credits.
Once a player creates their deck, they can choose to take part in player versus player rank battles, attack rivals, seek revenge on those who attacked them or loot for pieces of a vehicle. When looting, players will be matched with opponents who have the vehicle parts they need, and they will fight it out for the pieces.
The game is expected to be a free-to-play mobile card battling game...
Battlefield 4’s executive producer Patrick Bach gave an update of the development of DICE’s upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront game:
“We haven’t really locked that down yet” Bach told VideoGamer.com earlier today when asked which direction DICE was taking for the upcoming reboot, and whether it would feel more familiar to Battlefield players than Battlefront fans.
“I think there’s of course a part of the DICE DNA to build the games that we’re building, but then again we’re building games like Mirror’s Edge as well. So I think it will be a challenge for us."
“[You’re] damned if you do, damned if you don’t,” he continued. “People don’t want another Battlefield with Star Wars graphics; they want a Star Wars game that is proper."
“But then again, if you compromise brilliant design choices from Battlefield just because you’re not allowed from some kind of moral standpoint, then I think that’s also wrong. We need to make the best game possible. What that means in detail, we will see.”
