While Star Wars: Battlefront has been capturing the headlines lately, there is another Star Wars video game in development that has a lot of fans buzzing. Star Wars: Uprising is a mobile game that was announced a few weeks back that is set immediately after Return of the Jedi and begins to fill in the gap between Jedi and The Force Awakens. The game is slated for a release in September and Lucasfilm has just given fans a first look at the gameplay in Uprising. Check it out below,

I'll be honest and say that I'm looking forward to this game more than I am Battlefront (yes, I know I'm in the minority on that). While this doesn't have the flash or the style of Battlefront, the story implications intrigue me and I'm excited to get to know the state of the galaxy in the time between Episodes VI and VII. The game is set in the Anoat sector, where the Moff is denying the destruction of the Death Star and death of the Emperor. Players will go up against this Moff as a variety of classes. I look forward to seeing how the storylines play out and how this could affect our view of the post-Jedi galaxy.
