LucasArts has announced Star Wars 1313 ahead of this year’s E3 where it’s set to make its formal debut. 1313 sees players strap on the jetpack (we hope) of a lethal bounty hunter in a ‘mature’ slant on the Star Wars universe.
1313 introduces an integrated development approach by bringing together great artists across the Lucasfilm organisation, including LucasArts, Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm Animation Ltd. and Skywalker Sound.
‘We’re excited to share one of the projects LucasArts has been hard at work developing,’ said Paul Meegan, President, LucasArts. ‘Star Wars 1313 dives into a part of the Star Wars mythos that we’ve always known existed, but never had a chance to visit. We are committed to bringing the best gameplay experience and visual fidelity to life and I truly believe the work we are showcasing at E3 will speak for itself.’
A third-person action-adventure game named for Level 1313, a ruthless criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet of Coruscant, the game puts players in command of a deadly arsenal of exotic weaponry as they hunt down marks and uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy.
Sounds like we might just be looking at a Star Wars take on Assassin’s Creed to me, rest assured more details will follow as I take a first-hand look at the game at next week’s E3 show.
