Star Wars: Uprising – Win 1 Million Credits if you assault Bespin!

Game Director for Star Wars: Uprising, Daniel Erickson announced a challange to the community. Here is your chance to win 1 million credits. Every Player who completes all of their Assault Missions (5/5 every day) between now and the next Sector Battle kick off AND runs at least 90% of those on BESPIN will go in a pool and one person will randomly be chosen to get 1 MILLION credits. Check it out: Hey Everyone, After so many questions this week I reviewed the Bespin Battle Readiness targets and last cycle people basically started to run Bespin, got discouraged, stopped and went and ran Mataou, frustrating many of the end-level players. In 2.1, Battle Readiness rewards will scale with level which should alleviate a lot of this problem but for right now I’m going to make a personal challenge with the tools I have. We’re already having an Assault Mission…

Star Wars: Uprising: Sector Battle Crew Opportunities vs. Battle Opportunities: A Guide

Lots of people ask about the differences between using crew to accumulate victory points and doing the missions yourself to accumulate them. User Xaereth_Tri has taken the time to create a guide for the Reddit Star Wars: Uprising subreddit to help with this. The guide contains: Battle Plans: This is the currency used during sector battles to “purchase” opportunities (both crew and battle – see below). Crew Opportunity: This term refers to the expenditure of battle plans on crew missions to accumulate victory points. Battle Opportunity: This term refers to the expenditure of battle plans to “purchase” a mission that your character runs in exchange for victory points. Victory Points: These are the points that you earn throughout the sector battle, which are used at the end of the battle to determine your final placement, and corresponding rank.

I Played 13 Star Wars Mobile Games. Here are the Best.

Over the past couple years, we’ve seen a lot of new Star Wars games, just not where you might expect them: on your phone. There have been tons of new mobile games that have come out since Disney took over the franchise, from Rebels-themed kids’ games and puzzlers to tower defense and shooters. But are any of them any good? Do they stand up to the classics, like Rogue Squadron and Shadows of the Empire? I had to find out, so I sat down and played 13 of them. It took me a while, but here’s what I found out. The Best: Knights of the Old Republic It’s getting old now, but this game has translated remarkably well to mobile platforms. The controls are really easy to use, the gameplay is intuitive, and the story is a classic one that stands the test of time. The graphics are what you’d expect for a game that’s…

Bespin Is Finally Unlocked in Star Wars: Uprising

Ever since Star Wars: Uprising was released on Android and iOS electronics around two months ago, it’s certainly gotten a loyal fan base of people who just want to free the Galaxy from Imperial enslavement. Of course they also want to collect all of the items, upgrade their crew and characters, and earn a ton of credits while they play. When the game was released it had five playable planets and they are Burnin Konn, Hoth, Anoat, Mataou, and Bespin. However, the fifth planet, Bespin, stayed out of every players reach. The game lets players have the chance to push the boundaries of where the story will go next. Every player has the opportunity to play five assault missions every day. When you repeatedly attack imperial settlements for a few days, the bar for “sector battles” will rise on each planet that is being attacked. Once the bar reaches its…

StarWars Uprising: Gear Types and Stats

There is a great post in the Uprising Subreddit that gives you all the info you need to know about gear types and stats. It has since been added to the game guides section so you can find it along with other great tools to help you in Star Wars: Uprising. Here is an overview: All the gear in the game has 3 primary stats, and 0 to 3 secondary stats. All of those stats can belong to one of 3 main categories: Offensive, Defensive and Utility. Please note that only Offensive and Defensive stats matter for PR, while Utility has more intangible advantages. At the moment precise correlation between the stats in the PR formula is unknown; it is clear that there’s no simple arithmetic addition or even multiplication, there’s more behind the curtain, but at least it’s clear that the addition of more stat usually gives more PR than comparison…

The Force Awakens First Order Hints In Star Wars: Uprising?

In this previous September, the Star Wars: Journey to the Force Awakens campaign began. This came along with a lot of brand new comics, books, and more clues that have started piecing together the 30 years that happens between Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. The new mobile game called Star Wars: Uprising was released with the rest of the above. The game follows a smuggler who helps the Rebels when one part of the Empire creates a blockade around the Anoat sector. This then sections off Hoth and Bespin from the other areas of the galaxy. The game will only be remembered as a way for players to be a smuggler, but it has plenty of hints in it about the future of Star Wars. One of these hints was initially found by a MakingStarWars reader, Shi, and this inspired others to…

Video: How Star Wars: Uprising connects Return of Jedi to Force Awakens

Star Wars games have a long history. While some have been a hit, others haven’t been. Some of the games capture the rich universe perfectly and makes it even enriched further. Others have used Star Wars to make a quick buck off of the fans and some should have probably known better when they purchased Kinect Star Wars. Star Wars: Uprising is a free mobile game and it connects some of the dots between Return of the Jedi and the upcoming installment of the Force Awakens. How much of the intervening period will it reveal? You have to play for a little while to find out or you can watch a video that this page is linked to at the bottom.

Star Wars: Uprising Review: The Mild Side of the Force

December is getting closer and we are all getting anxious and ready to visit the galaxy far, far away. The months that remain will not have any mercy on Star Wars fans that are shaking as they await more news about the upcoming Star Wars movie. The one thing that is making this wait even worse is that Disney has not been too shy about giving us supplementary merchandise that is based on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie. For example, you can play Star Wars: Uprising, which is a mobile MMOG that seems to be running parallel with the upcoming movie’s events. At least, it mainly is the same but there are some moments when the game does not intersect with the new movie releasing in December. However, you should not worry because you will not ruin anything or cause any spoilers. That’s actually kind of hard to…

Star Wars: Uprising’s new canon is a sign of Lucasfilm’s trust in Kabam

  When Lucasfilm first introduced Star Wars: Uprising, many fans of the franchise were not happy when the name Kabam came up. Along with many gamers, the online and mobile game studio does not have a great reputation like BioWare or Obsidian. But the company’s role-playing game studio, Kabam RPG, took a very intelligent approach to becoming one of the first to include a Star Wars’ new post-Return of the Jedi canon by hiring on some of the Extended Universe’s best seasoned veterans. This is a very smart move in the $30 billion mobile gaming industry and this shows how important this current release for Kabam is. Also, by allowing a mobile publisher to make a part of Star Wars’ new canon shows a sign of trust from Lucasfilm and the importance of gaming on smart devices. “It’s extremely exciting. Being the first canon thing that was worked on at…

Star Wars Uprising – Dev Diary Introduction

  I have been looking forward to Star wars: Uprising and thus, following along with updates from the dev team that tell us a bit more about the game. All too often we see mobile games that are movie tie-ins just created to be quick money grabs.
