For a while Lucas Arts was hinting at a new Star Wars game. Many fans of the Star Wars Battlefront series were hoping for a long overdue sequel, but alas twas not the case. They instead announced Star Wars 1313. In this game you control a bounty hunter who has a wide variety of weapons and gadgets, but he has no force powers. This is actually one of the few Star Wars game that doesn't involve the force in anyway. Sure it may be in the game, like in Dark Forces, but the main character will have nothing to do with it. Instead the main character will being using human skills and gadgets to get the job done. Combat is fast paced and they are calling Stars 1313 a cinematic action adventure game. Story wise you will be hunting down assassination targets and uncovering the truth behind a criminal conspiracy on the planet of Coruscant. The name 1313 is a reference to a dangerous criminal underground deep beneath the surface of Coruscant. They claim that the world and story will be dark and mature. Read on for a little bit more info on the game and the first concept art.
Personally I'd love to see another Battlefront game and not whatever this is, especially if it turns out to be a three hour sixty dollar game like Star Wars The Force Unleashed 2, but I'm always hopeful about Star Wars related games and especially when they have the entirety of Lucas Arts backing them. The president of Lucas Arts, Paul Meegan, had this to say about the game, "We're excited to share one of the projects LucasArts has been hard at
work developing. 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. Hopefully that means we will be seeing some more information on the game and maybe some screenshots at E3. You can keep your eyes on the two links below for more information on the game, but for now this is all we have. Thanks for checking it out and if more emerges from E3 we will try to cover it.
