Star Wars: Uprising RPG game to debut on Android this fall, serve as prequel to The Force Awakens
Not having enough Star Wars games to play on your Android device? Fret not, a new one is heading to Google Play this fall! It's called Star Wars: Uprising and it's going to be a role-playing game whose storyline takes place after Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

Obviously, you won't be seeing much of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine here, given that they both met their demise in Ep. VI, but at least the trailer shows the reptilian face of Jabba The Hutt, and it's a face that you know and love... even though Jabba kind of took his last breath by the Sarlaac pit in Episode VI, so it's kind of unclear what he's doing in the trailer. Perhaps not all hutts are Jabba? Anyway! You are also going to visit some familiar places on your intergalactic quest, such as the icy planet Hoth and Bespin, the city in the clouds.

According to the game's creators at Kabam, players will be able to "learn hundreds of abilities" and play through the storyline as a smuggler, bounty hunter, rebel, diplomat, gambler, or their own unique character type. In true RPG fashion, players will have to collect gear and skill sets, put together a team of characters, and engage in real-time co-op battles against the Empire.

Check out the trailer below to get a feel for the new game. There's a strong Clone Wars vibe to it, although the title is actually more of a tie-in to the upcoming movie, The Force Awakens, which will hit theaters in December. Uprising's storyline will effectively bridge Episode VI and VII, so Star Wars maniacs will get a really good opportunity to fill any plot holes.

Looks promising. Hope it will be similar to KoTOR.

Hutts is a clan, not a specific surname,

Hutt is a sentient species, not really a clan, from the planet Nal Hutta. There are Hutts not affiliated with the crime syndicates. There has even been a Hutt Jedi. -The More You Know

Why so they can microtransaction us to death? Id rather pay $5-$10 bucks for it and get the full on game.

I rather pay upwards of 30+ for a game if it meant I get the full thing. I want fallout 3 on my 1520, full game no microtransaction.
