While we wait for the seventh Star Wars (The Force Awakens) to be completed, game developer and publisher, Kabam, has released some early footage of its new game, Star Wars: Uprising slated for release in September. We have more details and the alpha gameplay video after the break.
Star Wars: Uprising takes place after Return of the Jedi in the franchise’s mythology, with its characters seemingly using blasters and the Force to fight off the evil Galactic Empire. Gameplay appears to be a top-down experience, Gauntlet-style.
