Kabam, Disney Interactive, and Lucasfilm Launch Star Wars™: Uprising
A highly anticipated, next generation role-playing mobile game set in an entirely new Star Wars™ chapter
San Francisco – September 10, 2015 Kabam, in collaboration with Disney Interactive and Lucasfilm Ltd., today announced the launch of Star Wars™: Uprising, the first mobile role-playing game that takes place between Star Wars™: Return of the Jedi™ and Star Wars™: The Force Awakens, following the death of the Emperor. The game is available now for free on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Google Play for Android devices.
Star Wars: Uprising introduces players to the Anoat Sector, where they can band together with smugglers, freedom fighters, bounty hunters and gangsters to rise up against the Empire as it tries to maintain control of the galaxy. They can also create unique characters, go on missions, develop skills, build up their gear, and recruit crew members for sector battles, all in an effort to create their own version of a Star Wars hero.
“Star Wars: Uprising introduces players to a whole new Star Wars storyline in a deeply immersive RPG experience,” said Aaron Loeb, Senior Vice President of Studio, Kabam. “The community will be excited for massive sector battles that will shape the game’s future. It’s an amazing design that has a lot of surprises in store.”

Create the Hero the Galaxy Needs: Choose from a wide range of special skills, species, visual customisations and classic Star Wars gear to become the next Han Solo, Boba Fett or 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.
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.
