The lights are on
The rumors were true. Lucasfilm today announced Star Wars 1313, a new, internally developed game in the Star Wars series. Described as a "third person cinematic action adventure," players take control of an unnamed bounty hunter as they explore the depths of the Coruscant underworld.
“We’re excited to share one of the projects LucasArts has been hard at work developing,” said Paul Meegan, President, LucasArts. “Star Wars 1313 dives into a part of the Star Wars mythos that we’ve always known existed, but never had a chance to visit. We are committed to bringing the best gameplay experience and visual fidelity to life and I truly believe the work we are showcasing at E3 will speak for itself.”
Here's a rundown of the game's plot:
Named for Level 1313, a ruthless criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet of Coruscant, the game puts players in control of a deadly bounty hunter as he uses an arsenal of exotic weaponry to hunt down his marks and uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy. Star Wars 1313 emphasizes epic set pieces and fast-paced combat with a hero who uses human skills and gadgets, rather than supernatural Force powers, to make his way through this dangerous world.
Sounds awesome! Now lets see if they can deliver.
Well, any game that lets me play as a bounty hunter has my attention. This game could be something really good, hopefully they don't screw it up.
This is the type of Star Wars game that fans have long awaited.
Color me intrigued.
Sounds fun, I've been waiting for something like this ever since Star Wars Bounty Hunter came out forever ago. Prey 2 was supposed to be along these lines as well (except not Star Wars) but it sounds like it might get cancelled.
sounds like the last place in the star wars universe they could make content that didn't violate or advance canon.
This sounds very interesting, a way for them to not advance the story chronologically but not get stuck in the still mold of 'filling in the gaps.' Also, after the underwhelming Force Unleashed games, I like how you don't play a dumbed-down Jedi. If Prey 2 disappears forever, this will be my remedy. :)
Sounds an awful lot like a sequel to Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, starring Jango Fett. It wasn't a perfect game, but it was actually really fun and had a great story.
That shadowy figure in the picture up there even looks like Boba Fett without a helmet on. And of course, he's a human bounty hunter with lots of exotic weapons and gadgets, and no force powers. AND, his main years of operation were after ep. 3 and before ep. 4, which is an unexplored time that "we've always known existed, but never had a chance to visit." Well, except Force Unleashed and a few other things, but it's close enough.
Yep. Spiritual sequel to "Bounty Hunter". That's my official guess.
Wow... I never thought we would actually get Bounty Hunter 2.
it sounds good hope they make it a good game i need a good Star Wars game
Not sure how I feel about this upcoming game.. I lost interest in the Star Wars games after STFU & STFU2 ... I dont mean to be rude its just how I feel and Im probably one of the biggest STAR WARS fans out there. And that says alot :(
I wonder if the bounty hunter will be cybernetically enhanced, like Dengar. From the image he definitely looks human.
finnaly this sounds really good i hope it will be as good as repub commando
Assassin's Creed Star Wars Style!
Sounds great....still would have liked to see Battlefront 3 =(
It's no Battlefront 3, But I think this makes up for it.
