Most of the big Star Wars gaming news has been focused on DICE’s Star Wars: Battlefront and a rumored Uncharted-esque Star Wars title from Visceral. But there is another Star Wars game that’s slightly smaller but should get your attention, and it’s Star Wars: Uprising.
Star Wars: Uprising is an isometric Diablo-style action game for Android and iOS that will bridge the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Developed and published by Kabam, Star Wars: Uprising offers a fully fleshed out story with deep character customization and real-time cooperative play with up to three players.
Check out the full official description of the features that will be available for the game:
Create the Hero the Galaxy Needs – Choose from a wide range of special skills, species, visual customization and classic Star Wars gear to become the next Han Solo, Boba Fett or entirely unique hero of your own design.
Shape the Future of the Game Universe – Join players worldwide in massive sector-wide battles to dictate the expansion of in-game content, including new planets, exclusive gear and unique crew members.
A New Chapter in Star Wars – Play the first mobile game in the Star Wars universe that takes place between Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Real-Time Co-op Against the Empire – Explore the secrets of the sector, build a powerful crew with allies, and play alongside friends in synchronous cooperative play.
Brave Challenges on Classic and New Worlds – Battle your way through missions on Hoth, Cloud City and more, fighting against powerful bosses led by an ominous new adversary.
The preview trailer showcased some of the gameplay and visuals for Star Wars: Uprising and, despite being in Alpha, it looks pretty decent for game on a smartphone/tablet.
Although no concrete date has been announced, Star Wars: Uprising is expected for release sometime this fall. Most likely in order to coincide with the release of the Star Wars: Force Awakens movie. Here’s hoping that we can get our hands on this awesome game soon!
