Watch Star Wars: Uprising's First Diablo-Esque Gameplay

The mobile RPG offers co-op, customization, and a new Star Wars story.


Star Wars: Uprising, the upcoming mobile game that will bridge that gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, has gotten its first gameplay trailer.

The new RPG was announced early last month, but was accompanied only by a CG trailer and a small screenshot that resembled a Diablo-style action game. Based on today's new gameplay video, that appears to be a somewhat fair comparison. While the details are still sparse, it does look to be an isometric action game where you'll be able to outfit your character with a variety of weapons (including blasters and melee weapons) and items.

Despite being an iOS and Android game, Uprising offers real-time cooperative play for what appears to be up to at least three players.

Uprising "introduce[s] a new chapter of the Star Wars universe that will illuminate dramatic events in the Anoat Sector, inclusive of Hoth and Cloud City, following the Battle of Endor and the death of the Emperor." It's in the works at Kabam, a mobile studio also responsible for games based on franchises like The Hobbit and The Godfather.

A specific release date for Uprising has still not been announced; we only know it's coming in September. You can pre-register to play on the official website, which will entitle you to in-game rewards like a Stormtrooper helmet upon release.

Meanwhile, other new Star Wars games are also on the way, including a 1313-esque project from Visceral and DICE's Star Wars Battlefront.
