Star Wars: Hunters

About the GAME:

Back in February, Zynga and Lucasfilm announced Star Wars: Hunters. Over the months, development continued, and this past September, we learned that Star Wars: Hunters would be officially released in 2022. As Zynga gears up for this release, the title has started popping up in soft-launch in a few exclusive territories.

Star Wars: Hunters is an upcoming competitive arena combat game. Set after the fall of the Galactic Empire, Star Wars: Hunters will bring players together in thrilling, team-based multiplayer battles. And select from a diverse cast of new characters, including daring Bounty Hunters, heroes of the Rebellion and Imperial stormtroopers. 

About the characters:

The trailer reveals several playable characters that make for a varied, gloriously zany roster, including:

Imara Vex, a masked and mysterious bounty hunter seen unleashing a barrage of rockets.

Grozz, a ferocious Wookiee who can rip a boulder from the floor to wield at enemies.

Sentinel, a heavy Imperial gunner that calls in reinforcements.

Slingshot, a droideka and Ugnaught combo that makes good use of a shield.

Rieve, a lightsaber-wielding (and throwing) dark-side warrior.

J-3DI, a droid that thinks he’s a Jedi and employs a deadly lightsabre spin move.

Zaina, a rebel hero who cheers on her squad.

Utooni, a pair of Jawa brothers that stand on each other’s shoulders to wreak havoc, with the skill to quickly assemble a scrap cannon.

Releasing on:

Star Wars: Hunters will be free to download for the Nintendo Switch, on the App Store and Google Play in 2022.

As for gameplay, it’s a real-time, team-based arena combat game taking place in some of the most iconic locations in the Star Wars universe. The game is also slated for release on iOS and the Nintendo Switch, although we don’t yet know if cross-play will be available. Stay tuned for more details in early 2022!
