Teardown Overview

Executive Summary

Released in January 2017, Star Wars Force Arena is one of the most promising games of 2017’s first quarter.

High production quality, fast-paced, and the right simplification of MOBA mechanics provide a treat for a die-hard Star Wars fans and mid-core players alike.
