There’s a new Star Wars mobile strategy game on the horizon and EA needs fans’ help to test it.

Starwars.com reports:

Lucasfilm and EA announced today Star Wars: Rise to Power, an upcoming mobile strategy game set in the Star Wars universe. While specific details and a release date are yet to be revealed, Android users on Google Play can sign up to play the Closed Pre-Alpha Test. If you qualify, you’ll get to play the game and provide feedback. Visit the registration page and sign up.

Over at EA.com, they say:

Star Wars™: Rise to Power is a mobile strategy game set in the Star Wars™ universe. Still in development, we are inviting Android users on Google Play to join a Closed Pre-Alpha Test where they will have the opportunity to play the game, provide valuable feedback, and help shape the next great EA Star Wars mobile game.

Jumping in to play is not guaranteed. But things sound pretty interesting if you qualify.

“Players will form or join an alliance and engage in epic galactic warfare with other players from around the world in the hopes of emerging victorious,” explained EA. “Power is earned by outwitting adversaries in carefully orchestrated attacks and by building a mighty coalition through the loyalty of other players.

“In Star Wars: Rise to Power, players embrace destiny by engaging in diplomacy or deception to ultimately become a leader of the Empire or New Republic.”

Good luck to everyone who signs up to play!  If you get in, let us know what you think! Tweet us @jmbishopjr or @makingstarwars. JB
