Get ready for Star Wars: Uprising as it comes out for iOS and Android this week
In a galaxy far, far inside your pocket
If you're not caught up in all the Star Wars hype this year then it's about time you were. Why? Kabam is launching Star Wars: Uprising for iOS and Android on September 10th.
It's not just another spin-off game either. Uprising is being used to tie the events between Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
It'll have you create a character (choosing looks and species), equip them with gear and skills, and then complete missions with your own crew.
Battles are conducted in real-time and most involve exchanges of blaster fire. But you will see some Jedis turn up with their lightsabers, as well as casting fire from their hands.
As the focus here is on massive battles you can join up with friends to fight alongside them online.
The results of these big battles determines which new planets, gear and crew members will be added in future expansions.
