Lucasfilm and The Walt Disney Company have today announced the development of Star Wars: Uprising, a mobile game from Kabam, who previously created The Lord of the Rings: Legends of Middle-earth, Fast & Furious: Legacy, and Marvel Contest of Champions.
Fans who pre-register to play Star Wars: Uprising on the official website will be given a chance to shape the future of the universe and gain exclusive in-game rewards.
“Star Wars: Uprising is a deep role playing game (RPG) experience that will immerse players in the Star Wars universe during a unique time following the fall of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine,” said Loeb. “The Kabam RPG Studio has taken its collective experience and passion for role playing games to focus on creating a unique and immersive gameplay experience for Star Wars fans and RPG gamers around the world.”
Star Wars: Uprising will be the first mobile game to take place after Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and before Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 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.
