Lucasfilm and Disney have just announced that they’re teaming up with video game publisher Kabam to bring a new Star Wars game to Android this fall. Entitled Star Wars: Uprising, the new role playing game takes place after Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and before Episode VII: The Force Awakens, following the fall of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine.
Players will get to create and customize unique characters, go on missions, develop skills and collect gear, all while building up a powerful crew and cartel to fight in large-scale sector-wide battles. The game will take place in the Anoat Sector in Hoth and Cloud City, which follows the Battle of Endor and the death of the Emperor. Kabam explains:
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.
Players interested in the game can visit the official Star Wars: Uprising website, where they can pre-register and vote on exclusive in-game rewards that will be gifted to all who pre-register. A beta version of the game will also be made available in select regions within the coming weeks.
