Comments from Zynga on the title
“Today’s reveal gives viewers their first look at the Arena, a competitive, spectator stadium attracting Hunters from the far reaches of the galaxy to seek their fortunes,” said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing at Zynga. “Giving a brief glimpse of the Arena’s high-stakes, team-based action, this trailer showcases just a few of the dynamic characters inspired by the Star Wars galaxy that fans will experience in the game. Our teams at NaturalMotion and Boss Alien are excited to show more updates and can’t wait for players to transition from ‘spectator’ to ‘Hunter’ in the future.”
