Star Wars: Uprising is an upcoming mobile game that will take place between the events of Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The title is being developed by Kabam, in collaboration with The Walt Disney Company and Lucasfilm Ltd, and will have players creating their unique characters to send forth on dangerous missions. From here on, players will be tasked with hooking up with new companions and forming a powerful crew to join in large scale battles “that will dictate the future of the universe.”
Star Wars: Uprising will introduce a new chapter of the Star Wars universe that will illuminate dramatic events in the Anoat Sector, inclusive of Hoth and Cloud City, following the Battle of Endor and the death of the Emperor.
Star Wars: Uprising will have its own gear crafting and skill leveling system. According to an official press release, the game will sport hundreds of abilities to learn and various iconic Star Wars gear to craft for themselves.
The developer has also confirmed that players will be able to play cooperatively with friends against the Empire.
Star Wars: Uprising will enter its beta phase in the upcoming weeks, but will be available only in select territories for iOS and Android devices.
