Gameplay[]

An example of the game's gameplay.

Star Wars: Assault Team is a turn-based combat game involving card-battling elements, and takes players to locations from the Star Wars Trilogy.[7] Players must build a team of four individual "heroes" using cards they acquire. The team follows a preset path and encounter enemy forces which they must defeat. Each card has a passive ability (usually an attack or defense bonus) while some have a "charged over time" Special Ability. The game features a Tiered ranking system, and the attributes may be improved though Training Cards that are acquired while playing missions. Players must strategically assemble a four-man team for the missions, and use cunning strategy in combat to defeat their enemies.

Star Wars: Assault Team was announced on January 28, 2014.[1] It is offered as limited early access in selected markets,[2] Australia,[8] with a complete release in spring 2014.[2] It is available for mobile devices[1] and was released on March 26, 2014.[3]
