Star Wars Action RPG "Uprising" Is Shutting Down
The servers will go dark in November.
Star Wars: Uprising, a mobile game that bridges the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, is closing down, just a year after it was released. Developer Kabam made the announcement in its forums, explaining that the game had a solid launch, but failed to sustain a big enough audience.
"Despite the best efforts of our team here at Kabam, unfortunately, Star Wars: Uprising will soon be decommissioned," the studio said. "On November 17th, 2016, all Star Wars: Uprising servers will be shutting down permanently."
Ahead of the server closure, Kabam stopped accepting payments for the game on September 22.
In a FAQ posted in the Kabam forums, the developer explained that its resources are better served supporting more popular games and making new ones. The developer also said that there will be no way to access player data after the shutdown, so it's advised that you take screenshots or videos of your accomplishments now before it's too late.
Uprising came out in September 2015 for iOS and Android devices. As you can see in the gameplay trailer above, it is an isometric action game that bears a resemblance to Blizzard's Diablo series. Players can outfit their character with a variety of weapons, while real-time cooperative play is also included.
Ahead of Uprising's server shutdown, it looks like the game has been removed from iTunes and Google Play, as it did not show up when GameSpot searched for it on both platforms. The game's website remains operational, at least for now.
