The official 2.0 update synopsis:
"Embark on a quest to unlock the power of the light and dark sides of the Force, as you seek your path to one of the Galaxy’s rarest weapons for the elite few, the Lightsaber."I'm actually glad I waited to post my full review of Star Wars: Uprising, as now the free-to-play mobile MMO game has added the two biggest missing items from a Star Wars title- the Force and lightsabers. There's actually a ton of new additions to the game, including more missions and gear. The whole list of changes can be found on Kabam's official Uprising forum.
The game was originally supposed to be merely an underworld type group escaping a planetary blockage and breaking the grip of the Empire's remnants taking place in between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. It's pretty interesting they are changing the game and adding these things for the 2.0 update. I mean, now that they've added the most magical part of this universe I may actually return to the game.
