A few days ago LucasArts officially announced their newest Star Wars video game Star Wars 1313, and today we have our first look at the game's cinematics and gameplay! LucasArts brought the game to E3 2012 to talked about it and showed off what they have so far. I've gotta say... it looks fantastic! Gamers will take on the role of a lethal Bounty Hunter, and according to the developer this is going to be a "darker" and "more mature" Star Wars experience. The clip and gameplay footage shown, give you a solid idea of what's in store for us. I think it looks pretty badass. Here's the previously released description...
As players take control of a lethal bounty hunter in a never-before-seen dark and mature world, Star Wars 1313 introduces an integrated development approach by bringing together great artists across the Lucasfilm organization, including LucasArts, Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm Animation Ltd. and Skywalker Sound. A third person cinematic action adventure game, Star Wars 1313 will bring to life the Coruscant underworld, the most dangerous place in the Star Wars™ galaxy.
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.
There's a little Q & A in the video below between the host Geoff Keighley and the developer of the game, but you can skip to 0:50 for the first clip, and then 2:00 and 3:00 to see the gameplay action.
I'm excited about this game, and I can't wait to be able to actually play it! It looks like the game will bring happiness and joy to Star Wars fans. Check out the footage below, and let us know what you think about what you see!
