Today’s trailer showcases a selection of the competitive arenas and the diverse roster of Hunters fighting for glory within Vespaara’s in-game sporting complex. Highlighting each individual combatant’s unique fighting style – Rieve and J-3DI’s lightsaber wielding expertise, Zaina and Sentinel’s deadeye blaster accuracy, Imara Vex’s arsenal of bounty hunting weaponry, Grozz’s brute strength, the cunning tech of Slingshot’s droideka and Utooni’s resourceful use of scavenged scraps – the Arena becomes their stage for epic 4 x 4 battles.
“Today’s gameplay reveal gives players their first look at the Hunters in action, showcasing eight of the dynamic characters which will be available at launch,” said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing at Zynga. “Our teams at NaturalMotion and Boss Alien are excited for fans to enter the fray and compete for galaxy-wide glory in the Arena next year.”
Set after the fall of the Galactic Empire, Star Wars: Hunters will connect players in real time to battle in arena settings inspired by iconic Star Wars locales in teams of four. Players will compete as daring bounty hunters, heroes of the Rebellion and holdouts of the fallen Empire in an action game that immerses players in fast-paced and visually stunning Star Wars conflict. Upon launch in 2022, Star Wars: Hunters will be available as a free download for the Nintendo Switch, on the App Store and on Google Play and will support cross-play across all platforms.
