Last month Konami announced a new card-battling game based in the Star Wars universe, and today Star Wars Force Collection (Free) has gone live in the App Store. Force Collection allows you to build a team of characters and vehicles spanning all six of the Star Wars movies, and then battle it out by either choosing to play on the side of the Jedi Order or indulge in your inner evil by joining the Dark Side. Beyond that, your cards can be upgraded to expand on each of their unique features and abilities.
Star Wars Force Collection is free-to-play, and is an online-only game. So far the impressions in our forums are that the loading times are atrocious, which is kind of killing peoples’ enthusiasm for the game. Hopefully that’s something that can be sorted out down the line, but I am curious to see how the actual card-battling and card upgrading works in practice. The Star Wars universe is perfect for a game like this, so if you’re interested give the free download a shot and give it a spin for yourself.
