It's definitely a good time to be a Star Wars fan and a gamer, isn't it? The latest game to use the famous IP is Star Wars: Rivals, currently in soft launch in Australia and in early access on Google Play. To the surprise of many, Star Wars: Rivals is a cover-based action shooter designed for mobile devices and not a card game or match-three. The game offers both a campaign—mission-based scenarios filled with iconic heroes and villains—and real-time cross-platform PvP skirmishes.

The characters comes from different eras of the universe and even from films like the Force Awakens.
