LOS ANGELES   - Disney Interactive and Lucasfilm have launched Star Wars: Commander, a game for mobile devices.

Commander, launching on Apple devices first, is a free-to-play combat strategy game in which players choose whether to fight for the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire and lead a force in epic battles.

The game offers an original Star Wars storyline with new characters set within the Galactic Civil War of the Star Wars: Episodes IV and VI movies with players controlling a leader on the front lines.

Those who choose the Rebellion will be able to call upon Han Solo, Chewbacca and Princess Leia to support their missions.

Leaders of the evil Imperial forces will command AT-ATs, TIE fighters and Stormtroopers to control the galaxy.

In the game, players build and defend a base, deploy armies and vehicles to attack other players and travel to multiple planets to complete missions.

Commander is available through the Apple App Store, and is playable on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
