Star Wars: Uprising may look like yet another mobile Android game set in the Star Wars universe. However, the storyline for this free-to-play role-playing game takes place after the events of Return of the Jedi and before the upcoming movie The Force Awakens.

Here are the main features in the game, which was developed and published by Kabam:

  • Create the Hero the Galaxy Needs: Choose from a wide range of special skills, species, visual customizations 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.

You can download and play Star Wars: Uprising right now in the Google Play Store. You can also check out an interview with Kabam's Daniel Erickson about the game at our sister site iMore.
