In the course of the Nintendo Direct immediately, we had been proven a short glimpse of an intriguing new sport, Star Wars: Hunters.
The very transient trailer took us by way of what appeared just like the underground entrance of a fight area whereas varied opponents appeared through hologram. There have been Jedi, bounty hunters, Imperial troopers and extra.
Following the trailer, it was revealed that Star Wars: Hunters is a aggressive area fight sport coming to Nintendo Swap (and cell units) in 2021. The sport is about in between Episodes VI and VII, so after the autumn of the Galactic Empire however earlier than the rise of the First Order.
Shortly after the Nintendo Direct, Zynga and Lucasfilm Video games shared a press launch that exposed a couple of extra particular particulars. Particularly, the press launch mentions “thrilling, squad-based multiplayer battles that includes a various array of distinctive new Star Wars characters.”
My preliminary thought was that Star Wars: Hunters can be a first- or third-person motion fight sport fought in an area, just like EA’s Rocket Enviornment. Nevertheless, the point out of “squad primarily based” battles leads me to imagine gameplay will probably be extra of a real-time strategic fight sport.
It sounds such as you’ll acquire varied heroes and create a squad from them. You then’ll deliver that squad into completely different area settings — “impressed by iconic Star Wars locales” — and compete towards different groups.
With little else proven or defined, all we will do is hypothesize as to what gameplay will include. I’m going to guess will probably be a real-time motion sport wherein the characters take turns auto-attacking and also you’ll be capable to launch particular assaults when some form of meter is charged. This appears to take advantage of sense given the outline and platforms Star Wars; Hunters will probably be accessible for.
We additionally know that will probably be free to obtain, so I’m assuming there will probably be some form of vitality system or character leveling mechanic that encourages you to spend cash. Sometimes these squad-based hero collectors can help you degree up every character individually which makes them stronger and unlocks particular talents. Or there are some particular occasions that require tickets to take part and you may solely get them if you happen to spend cash.
Clearly, there are nonetheless plenty of questions surrounding Star Wars: Hunters. Will the roster be comprised of fully new characters or will we be seeing some acquainted faces as nicely? Hopefully, we don’t have to attend lengthy for particulars.
Star Wars: Hunters is about to launch in 2021 for Nintendo Swap and cell units (iOS and Android). A Nintendo Swap On-line membership is not going to be required to obtain and play.
