Lucasarts has finally come clean about their next big Star Wars title, Star Wars: 1313! A few weeks after Lucasfilm sent the Star Wars community into a flurry of activity by trademarking the title Star Wars: 1313 and snapping up any URLs relating to the title, we’re finally getting our first details about the project.
Star Wars: 1313 will be a third person action game, centering around cover shooting and platforming. The setting of the game is perhaps the most interesting piece of news. The game’s title seems to be taken from “Level 1313, a ruthless criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet of Coruscant” according to Lucasarts. This sounds vaguely familiar to the Star Wars: Underworld concept that has been thrown around in regards to the Live Action series. Could this be a possible tie-in?
In regards to gameplay, fans of The Force Unleashed waiting for a sequel or spiritual successor are going to be disappointed, as Lucasarts is describing the main character as a bounty hunter who, “uses human skills and gadgets, rather than supernatural Force powers, to make his way through this dangerous world”.
More information is coming next week at E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, so stay tuned for news as we learn more about this project.
