LucasArts has confirmed on tonight’s GameTrailers TV pre-E3 special that it’s developing Star Wars 1313, a ‘dark and mature’ third-person cinematic adventure game, for unconfirmed platforms.
The game is set on Level 1313, a criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet Coruscant. Players follow a deadly bounty hunter, equipped with an arsenal of exotic weaponry, human skills, and gadgets, who must hunt down his targets and discover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy. The game will emphasize “epic set pieces and fast-paced combat.”
“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.”
First gameplay footage will debut on Monday. Visit the game’s official site here.
