Kabam, Disney Announce Star Wars: Uprising for Mobile

The RPG will see players exploring the Star Wars universe in a time between Star Wars: Episode VI and The Force Awakens.

Social and mobile game developer Kabam, in collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm, has announced the development of Star Wars: Uprising, a mobile game set in between the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In development at Kabam RPG Studio in San Francisco, the RPG will allow players to create their own unique character to take on missions.

Star Wars: Uprising will see players exploring the Anoat Sector, including Hoth and Cloud City, with action taking place after the Battle of Endor and the death of the Emperor. Gamers will complete missions, collecting gear and new skills for their character over time. As players learn these abilities and collect new items, their hero can take on the qualities of a smuggler, bounty hunter, rebel guerilla, diplomat, gambler or something entirely unique.

In a statement, Kabam’s senior vice president of studios, Aaron Leob, commented on the game:

Star Wars: Uprising is a deep role playing game experience that will immerse players in the Star Wars universe during a unique time following the fall of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine. 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.
