Star Wars 1313 Announced by Lucasarts
Star Wars 1313 is going to happen. After the incredible success of the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed games it’s no surprise to see Lucasarts heading back into the fray with another dark take on everyone’s favorite sci-fi franchise.
This time, rather than playing as a distraught Jedi, users will control a “Boba Fett-style” bounty hunter in Star Wars 1313. The game is named for Level 1313, a ruthless criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet of Coruscant. The unnamed bounty hunter will have many weapons and gadgets to play with in order to take down his marks. Is that a jet pack we see in the above screenshot? Hopefully there are no blind men walking around with sticks!
As you hunt down criminals you’ll uncover a vast conspiracy, using your human skills in fast-paced combat. Lucasarts is promising big set-pieces in Star Wars 1313 in order to make up for the lack of lightsabers, as well as cover-based combat and “playable cinematic game play” – possibly some QTEs?
A website for StarWars1313 is already operational but there’s nothing of note up just yet. E3 is next week so expect to hear tons more about the game.
