Star Wars: Assault Team blasting its way to Windows and Windows Phone this spring

Star Wars Lede

The official Star Wars Twitter profile has announced that a new game will be launching on not only Android and iOS, but Windows 8 and Windows Phone too – Star Wars: Assault Team. Prepare those blasters as Disney will be releasing a brand new experience for you to travel to a galaxy far, far away.

So just what is Star Wars: Assault Team? We're not entirely sure, but according to the screenshot teased by the social team on Twitter, we could well be looking at a strategic card game. It's interesting to note that we're likely to see a simultaneous cross-platform launch, something previously unheard of when it came to Windows Phone.

We'll hopefully have more details in the coming weeks as to exactly what Star Wars fans can expect to see in this latest mobile title. For now, consider yourself teased with the above and stay tuned for updates on our part should we learn anything else.

First thought it to be something like COD:strike team.Anyway good for wp but 8.1 should have sd card installation to make use of it.

Will it be delayed by a month or more, and then come stripped of features found on iOS and Android?

Yeah, I could deal with no Xbox live integration, but games lately lacking cloud saves and moga support like on other platforms is seriously bumming me out :(  I refuse to purchase any large games like San Andreas until they have those featues implemented.  So annoying having to restart from scratch when moving to a new device/replacing a broken device.

Great news. Thanks for the heads up. I hope Windows 8.1 comes with SD card installation. It would make our lives much more easier rather than uninstalling and reinstalling things over and over again. Looking forward to this game. I'm 100% sure its gonna be available for 1GB ram phones. Now on all the good games will roll out that way only.

can't wait..
are there any good "strategic card" games for the Windows Phone platform anyway?

Well, this game will be going to all platforms, so the only conclusion that could be drawn here is that you posted this comment just to rile people up. Congrats.

So, if you see it in the store, but you can't download it until you get on wifi, which will be hours later (when your done work), you won't beleive it?

Like it would be the first time an app showed up on the store only to go MIA after a while, or like a wrong version of an app was never submitted.

Will Rudy please make us a cool, SiFi, Cortana app to play with while we patiently wait... I want to see Cortana talking on my device with cool animation's... Because I know MS isn't "cool" enough to do this for us..

Judging by the look, I dont think its going to be a card game exactly. Have you guys played Avengers Alliance on Facebook? (idk any other example), but I believe its going to be like that. Instead of those being "cards" in the pic, I think they are just the icons of your character line up to attack and assault.... But I could be very
wrong. **sorry for grammar errors if any.

Mass support for Windows Phone. Disney I Love you! Clone Wars ending with a comic. Disney I Hate You!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Disney releasing more Windows Phone Games. Disney I love you again!!!! Now lets talk about the Clone Wars......
