LucasArts has announced its latest Star Wars video game series, Star Wars: 1313. Initial details have been revealed right now, prior to further previews expected at E3 2012 next week.
Star Wars: 1313 promises a ‘mature’ take on the universe, as players are cast in the role of a bounty hunter and taken in the seedy underworld of the Level 1313 section of the Republic’s capital, Coruscant. Players will use ‘exotic weaponry’ as they ‘uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy’.
Gameplay will consist of cover-based shooting and platforming, a description which makes the game sound like Uncharted or Assassin’s Creed… but Star Wars.
No release date or platforms have been officially announced, but one can safely assume Star Wars: 1313 will at least be coming to the major consoles.
