LucasArts has officially lifted the lid on its next game in the Stars Wars franchise. ‘Star Wars 1313’ is a third-person action adventure title set against the seedy backdrop of the Coruscant underworld. The game is being developed in-house at LucasArts with contributions from Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm Animation Ltd. and Skywalker Sound.
Here’s more information on Star Wars 1313 from LucasArts’ press release:
“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.”
The game is set to make its formal debut at E3 2012 so stay tuned to E33tonline for all the latest details about this intriguing new entry in the Star Wars universe.
