Lucas, Disney and Kabam have announced a new Star Wars RPG for mobiles called ‘Uprising’ for the end of this year. And while that’s exciting the best news is it takes place between Return of the Jedi and the Force Awakens giving us our first look at the landscape for the upcoming film.
Heres the official synopsis for the game:
Players will be able to create their own unique character, go on missions, and build their gear and skills, while amassing a powerful crew and cartel to join in large-scale sector-wide battles that dictate the future of the game universe. Players will also be able to engage in real-time co-op with friends against the Empire.The game 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. Players will learn hundreds of abilities and collect iconic Star Wars gear to create their own takes on the next generation of heroes: Smuggler, Bounty Hunter, Rebel Guerilla, Diplomat, Gambler or something completely unique.
Now that sounds like a good hook right there to me- but incase you’re not sold here’s the first trailer too.
