Disney has brought the official Star Wars app on the Google Play Store. The free application is aimed to be a central hub for everything Star Wars–breaking news, trailers, posters, social media updates, and more.
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.
Kabam RPG Studio has teamed up with Lucas Films and the Walt Disney Company to create “Star Wars: Uprising,” an upcoming game on mobile devices.
The game will “introduce 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,” according to a release.
The RPG will immerse players in the Star Wars universe during a unique time following the fall of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine.
Although there is no set date for the app’s official release, users can pre-register to receive a beta rollout in the coming weeks.
Hit the break for the full presser and the app’s promotional video.
Star Wars has been one of the most popular movie franchises in history, but one thing it lacked was digital availability. That is all changing as it will now be available digitally starting this Friday, April 10.
This means it will be available on Google Play, and it will also be available on iTunes, Vudu, Amazon, Verizon Fios, Xbox Video, and Disney Movies Anywhere.
Nothing can stop the Star Wars franchise at this point. From television to apparel to movies and video games, George Lucas’ beloved child can be seen around the world. Star Wars Rebels is an ongoing television series airing on Disney XD. To supplement the television series, Disney has released a mobile game titled Star Wars Rebels: Recon. This action-platformer tasks players with fighting against (suprise!) the Empire.
A long time ago it took a decently powerful desktop computer to run a major RPG title like Knights of the Old Republic from the Star Wars universe. Fast forward a few years that computing power can now be found in devices that fit in the palm of your hand. To prove that point, Aspyr Media, Inc. has released the full Knights of the Old Republic game for Android devices. Read more
If you’re an Angry Birds addict, here’s some good news.

Google is having a Star Wars sale, and Amazon has responded with their own. From now until May 10, the Amazon Appstore will be offering deals on all types of Star Wars related content. In addition, Star Wars oriented Free App of the Day will be featured on Sunday, May the 4th.
The current deals going on include Star Wars Pinball 3 free with 50% off in-app purchases, 50% off in-app purchases for Star Wars: Tiny Death Star, and Angry Birds Star Wars Premium HD (Kindle Tablet Edition) at $0.99.
May 4th is a holiday for Star Wars fans everywhere, due to the punny “May the fourth be with you” phrase, and Google is taking advantage of that by offering deals. Named simply the “May the Fourth Be With You” sale, you can find all kinds of Star Wars games, apps, and books, discounted, or even free beginning today.
These deals will presumably run until May 4th, but it’s not clear whether the deals will change as it gets closer to the 4th. You can check out what’s available via the link below.

Rovio is finally updating Angry Birds Star Wars to include its final 30 levels and a finale to the saga in the game. There are 15 levels on an Imperial Star Destroyer and 15 levels on the Death Star, all of which build up to boss fights against Lard Vader and the Emperor. We’ll also finally see Lard Vader unmasked at the conclusion.
Unfortunately, Rovio’s first Star Wars crossover had to come to an end sometime, but it looks like they’re going to make this ending almost as epic as the original Star Wars trilogy. The update (and original game) is free to download below.
