There’s a big first happening in a galaxy far, far away.
Star Wars: Uprising is in development, and it’s the first mobile game set in between Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (Uprising also has some of the first post-Return of the Jedi details in the entire Star Wars universe.) Kabam, who is working alongside The Walt Disney Company and Lucasfilm, announced the news today on StarWars.com.
The release describes the game as follows: “Star Wars: Uprising will feature key events set in the Anoat Sector, inclusive of Hoth and Cloud City, and will allow players to create characters, go on missions, build their gear and skills, and organize crews and factions to participate in wide-ranging battles. Keeping up with tradition of Star Wars roleplaying games, players will learn hundreds of new abilities and collect classic gear and equipment conducive to creating their own takes on iconic roles: Smuggler, Bounty Hunter, Rebel Guerilla, Diplomat, Gambler, or something new entirely.”
