"This is a fairly uncovered time frame within canon. What happened right after the Emperor died? How did the news reach the people? What happened to the rebellion? This is a really fertile and interesting time period to be playing in."
―Aaron Loeb, senior Kabam executive[src]

Star Wars: Uprising was a mobile game by Kabam. The game had a beta rollout in the summer of 2015, with a full release on September 10, 2015 for iOS and Android.[2]

Uprising is set shortly after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and deals with the aftermath of the Battle of Endor, which saw the deaths of Darth Sidious and Darth Vader. The Galactic Empire, reeling from its loss, locks down the Anoat sector. A rogue band of resistance fighters comes together to create an uprising against the Empire in the sector.

On September 22, 2016, it was announced by Kabam that Star Wars: Uprising would be ceasing operations on November 17, 2016. The game's servers were taken offline at 9 AM PST on that day.[3]

Gameplay

Bragh

Commander Bragh, a new character created for Star Wars: Uprising, enforces Imperial rule in the Anoat sector.

Players will begin Star Wars: Uprising as a smuggler targeted by the Galactic Empire, which catches the smuggler transporting contraband in the Anoat sector. The smuggler is put on the run, and the player learns how to fight and flee from Imperial forces.[7]

The player begins missions that allow them to go on new smuggling and recovery operations, as well as to begin creating a crew of characters. According to Kabam executive Aaron Loeb, players are able to create the kind of Star Wars hero that they want to be. The game also includes large-scale, staged sector battles that players can take part in with other players.[7]

Development

Star Wars: Uprising was first announced on June 4, 2015. The game was developed by Kabam, guided by senior VP Aaron Loeb, in collaboration with Lucasfilm and The Walt Disney Company.[8] Kabam designed the game to evolve throughout gameplay, with staged events that bring players into sector battles that allow players to engage in real-time battles with fellow players. The game's story is part of the canon storyline between Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens.[7]

Continuity

Star Wars: Uprising is a canonical game set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, and it is the first mobile game to be set in that era.[7] The game, which deals with the aftermath of the events of Return of the Jedi, is set in the Anoat sector,[1] which first appeared in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.[11] Two of the game's locations, Cloud City and Hoth,[1] also first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back.[11]

  5. The opening crawl for Star Wars: Uprising states "In the months following Emperor Palpatine's death..." Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places Palpatine's death onboard the Second Death Star in 4 ABY. Because Uprising is set in the months following, it can be assumed that it could take place in 4 or 5 ABY, or at least the beginning of the game. Furthermore, Star Wars Battlefront II refers to the Uprising in the Anoat Sector, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary dates Han Solo meeting with an Imperial defector at Maz's castle to get information that would help in the liberation of Kashyyyk to twenty-nine years before the Starkiller Incident, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY. Therefore, the meeting and the resulting skirmish took place in 5 ABY. As the mission to Chinook Station took place between Solo's meeting with the Imperial defector, and the Battle of Jakku, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 5 ABY, therefore, the Mission to Chinook Station also took place in 5 ABY, meaning that the events of Star Wars: Uprising must have been occurring in 5 ABY.
  6. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary establishes that Landonis Balthazar Calrissian liberated Cloud City twenty-nine years before the "Starkiller Incident." As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Starkiller Incident to 34 ABY, it can be deduced that the liberation, which appears in Star Wars: Uprising, took place in 5 ABY.
