Star Wars 1313 revealed; new mature themed franchise set in the depths of Coruscant
LucasArts has officially revealed Star War 1313, a brand new franchise that will explore a never-before-seen dark and mature world on the planet Coruscant. Players will take on the role of a bounty hunter who will explore the ruthless criminal underground organization known as Level 1313.
The development studio is teaming up with the other studios that comprise the Lucasfilm organization including Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm Animation Ltd. and Skywalker Sound to bring an authentic Star Wars experience to consoles. Star Wars 1313 is a third person cinematic action adventure game that will delve into the underground world of Coruscant. Players will have an arsenal of weaponry and gadgets at their disposal to hunt down and capture your marks. While this will be a Star Wars game, don’t expect the Force to play a role in our bounty hunter. He’ll have to rely on human skill and his tools of the trade to survive his encounters.
“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.”
We’ll be sure to bring you more details from the E3 show floor next week, but for now feel free to admire this lone piece of artwork LucasArts has released. Who do you think this new bounty hunter hero is? Is he a hero at all? Let the speculation begin!
