Another Star Wars title is in the works. I am sure there are plenty more that we just don’t know about. However, this one we do know a little bit about. Game developers Kabam, along with Disney and LucasFilm, are working on a new RPG titled Star Wars: Uprising. The game will be a deep role-playing game (RPG) experience that will immerse players in the Star Wars universe following the fall of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine. According to their timeline, this story line will fall between Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and before Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
As a gamer, you will be able to create your own unique character, go on missions, build up your gear and skills. Along your journey you will learn hundreds of abilities and collect iconic Star Wars gear to create the next generation of hereos:Â Smuggler, Bounty Hunter, Rebel Guerilla, Diplomat, Gambler or something completely different. Where things start to sound even better is that the title will have you create a crew and cartel to join in on large-scale sector-wide battles that will dictate the future of the game universe. Mix in real-time co-op with friends against the Empire and it is starting to sound like a pretty interesting title, to say the least.
You don’t have to sit around and twiddle your thumbs until Star Wars: Uprising is launch in the fall of 2015 to get involved with the game. Kabam has the official Star Wars: Uprising website up and running where you can pre-register for the title and win exclusive prizes like a storm trooper helmet, by voting for in-game content.Â Â They also mention that they are going to begin a beta testing roll out in the coming weeks in select territories too. I don’t see a way to register to get included in that, but I would assume by participating on the site you will have better odds of getting in the door.
