Disney and Kabam have just released the first details and a teaser trailer for a new Star Wars game that’s coming to mobile later this year: Star Wars: Uprising. Being made at the Kabam RPG Studio in San Francisco, the one that made Spirit Lords (Free), this is sounding like an action-RPG where you can create a Rebel character, go on missions, collect gear, and do all the things that action-RPGs entail. Kabam is promising real-time co-op so you can battle the empire with friends with your own crew and cartel. There will be raid missions that will supposedly affect the game universe based on how they go, too. Seems interesting.
The setting of Star Wars: Uprising is interesting, too: it’s taking place between Episodes 6 and 7 in the Anoat Sector which includes Hoth and Cloud City, with the galaxy in flux after the death of the Emperor and Darth Vader. Sounds interesting! This one is expected to launch this fall, and my guess is that we’ll hear about it going worldwide not too far ahead of The Force Awakens. Consiering Avengers: Age of Ultron led to many games, my money is on there being a number of other Star Wars games getting revealed ahead of The Force Awakens this year, so expect to be hearing about more and more Star Wars games.
