We already knew that a Star Wars game from Visceral was in the works, but details have been hazy until now.

During the Star Wars Celebration event today, writer Amy Hennig took the stage and dropped some hints on what we can expect from the upcoming title. Hennig compared the writing of the game to be similar to her past work with Uncharted, which resulted in hearty applause and cheers from the audience. She also described the game as "an original Star Wars story with new characters, new locations, new tech, new creatures, you name it." 

She hopes that the game will resonate with Star Wars fans the same way it would if they watched one of the beloved films of the series. "We want you to finish playing the game and feel like you just saw a really good Star Wars movie," she said. 

Additionally, she showcased a batch of concept images, which you can view below. The (as of yet) untitled Star Wars game is expected to launch in 2018. For more on Star Wars Celebration, learn about the two new DLC coming to Star Wars Battlefront, Death Star and Rogue One: Scarif.
