Anticipation for the new Star Wars movie is slowly but surely building up, and one of the best ways to get people all the more hyped up is to release a video game even before the movie actually comes out in December. Game developer Kabam, Disney and Lucasfilms have announced that mobile gamers will have something to look forward to as they will be releasing the Star Wars: Uprising RPG, set in a whole new chapter of the Star Wars story.

The game universe is set right after the death of the Emperor and the fall of Darth Vader in Return of the Jedi, and just before the events of the new movie coming out in December, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The deep RPG will let you create your own characters, with your own gear and skills, and building your own crew and cartel as well. You will be joining a sector-wide battle, playing and interacting with the other players in the game as all of you shape the universe and “dictate” the future of the entire game.

The official website of Star Wars: Uprising is now live and those who are too excited to wait can pre-register already. And if you do pre-reg, you will get a storm trooper helmet (virtual of course) and other in-game rewards when the game finally launches. You can also help shape the future of the game by voting for which rewards will be gifted to those who signed up.

The beta rollout of Star Wars: Uprising will start in the next few weeks, but only in select territories. So whether you plan to become a Smuggler, Bounty Hunter, Rebel Guerilla, Diplomat, Gambler or something really different, you better start brushing up on your Star Wars and even your RPG skills as well.
