Star Wars Uprising poster

Kabam, the makers of the upcoming Star Wars: Uprising will have a significant presence at PAX Prime in Seattle later this month. The gaming festival, which will run from August 28th to 31st, will feature a series of events and giveaways focused around the much anticipated mobile Star Wars game.



The Kabam booth will feature photo opportunities and a chance to speak with game developers. In addition they’ll be giving away pins and lanyards to attendees as well as Star Wars: Uprising T-Shirts to those who help promote by meeting specific criteria.


T-Shirts will be given out to those who can do one of the following:

Stream Star Wars: Uprising and get more than 3000 concurrent viewers (at any given time, starting Day 1 of PAX. Must provide proof that viewership numbers were achieved.)


YouTubers who showcase the game and receive more than 100,000 views on a single video with Star Wars: Uprising content.


Cosplayers who come to the booth in Star Wars cosplay — bonus if it is Star Wars: Uprising cosplay


Are randomly selected among PAX attendees wearing Star Wars: Uprising lanyards and PAX Pins




Last but certainly not least Lando Calrissian himself, Billy Dee Williams, will be on hand signing autographs and doing meet and greets from 1PM to 3 PM on Saturday 8/29.

    i feel that Im the only one interested in this game. basicly the first worldwide accessible content set after ROTJ.

    • August 18, 2015 at 11:09 pm

      Nah, I’m excited for it too.

    • August 18, 2015 at 11:25 pm

      No, you are not alone

      • August 19, 2015 at 7:32 pm

        It seems like everyone wants to be vader after his death. This guy and now kylo ren. you dont know the POWER of the dark side!!

    • August 18, 2015 at 11:29 pm

      oh yes, after ROTJ we have more force ghosts…

      will they appear in TFA?

      ‘d be happy to see Yoda.

      any rumour?

      • August 19, 2015 at 1:15 am

        I really want to see a Yoda force ghost! Basicly the only one we could have other then maybe qui-gon or if they make obi-wan appear young for some reason. There is no way they are gutsy enough to bring back little ani as a force ghost

    I’ve been playing the beta in Australia for a few weeks now. It’s a lot of fun although still missing a lot of content.

    The story so far is very individual and set in a sector that has been walled off by part of the empire so probably don’t expect much overall canon changing events

  • August 18, 2015 at 11:28 pm

    Lando’s not a system. He’s a man.

    • August 18, 2015 at 11:56 pm

      Apropo Lando, something interesting about the rebels:

      It is from the topical Rogue One article on announcing the cast and other infos:

      ‘…Rogue One, which tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star…’

      So rebels are called resistance fighters from now. (?)

      • August 19, 2015 at 12:37 am

        It was the Empire that called them Rebels. Besides, I wouldn’t read too much into that one word… LucasFilm is running a TV show on Disney XD right now called “Rebels” not “Resistance”….

      • August 19, 2015 at 6:48 am

        I’m speculating they may not actually be members of the rebel alliance. The cast photo they released doesn’t look classic rebels. Also there was a rumor a while ago about the movie focusing on a team of bounty hunters.

  • August 18, 2015 at 11:41 pm

    Cool! i wanna go

  • August 18, 2015 at 11:44 pm

    I’m actually going to PAX next weekend, so this will make the trip even more worthwhile! I can’t wait to (hopefully) meet this guy!

  • August 18, 2015 at 11:51 pm

    Is this game highly anticipated? We just learned about it a month ago and haven’t been given much to chew on since. I think we all might want to temper our expectations for this one.

  • August 19, 2015 at 12:02 am

    Excited for the game, don’t like the developer. Kabam is a known pay to play developer. I’d rather pay a flat fee for a game rather than being nickled and dimmed for content.

  • August 19, 2015 at 12:04 am

    What’s with the Vader Wannabe in the poster?

  • August 19, 2015 at 12:19 am

    I live in Sweden and I’ve been playing the game for a month or so. It’s amazing, although a bit repetitive.

  • August 19, 2015 at 1:50 am

    EDIT: looks like the post i was replying to got deleted… (the post was a bit racist) Oh well, my idea still remains 🙂

    They need more Greeks in Star Wars if you ask me.

    In fact, i have a great story idea for post ROTJ, pre TFA:

    Luke Skywalker goes to the planet Yavin and trains 300 students from the planet Sparta in the ways of the force.

    The result:

    300 Jedi Greeks take on the Empire.

    The main characters:

    Master Mistos
    Master Constantinos
    Master Efstathia
    Master Haralambos
    Knight Tsipras
    and many more 🙂

    They’re not being phased out. You’re just an insecure racist.

    Hope that helps!

  • August 19, 2015 at 2:19 am

    Heaven forbid we have diversity. (eyeroll)

  • August 19, 2015 at 4:56 am

    But why isn’t Lando in TFA?! He did voicework on Rebels, Only guess is that he’s not in good enough shape to act anymore……even though he’s good enough to go to this thing. Maybe Finn is his kid and that was there way of including a Calrissian in the new trilogy?

    • August 19, 2015 at 7:34 am

      Finn is a Skywalker

  • August 19, 2015 at 10:13 am

    the villan looks like a knock off vader… my mate had a “space wars” bedspread… Had look a like but not quite right star wars things… including a vader-a-like not unlike this guy.

  • August 19, 2015 at 10:47 am

    hey! just realised that the imperial dude is a grand moff! wich, according to new canon, is not controllong only one sector… Plus the novel tarkin says it’s a designation created specifically for Tarkin.

  • August 19, 2015 at 5:24 pm

    Is Finn Lukes son or Has son or is he Hand grandson or is he Mace Windus grandson or son or Obi wans.Rumor that first appeared was that he was Obi wans descendant.My bet he is Mace Wondus descendant.I think General Hux is Lukes son and I’d an infiltrators to destroy the first order long ball strategy.

      What? You drunk, bro? Spellcheck is your friend. Also, might want to read your comment before you post; just a thought.
