LucasArts Announces Star Wars 1313 - New Bounty Hunter Game
After nearly a month of speculation, LucasArts has taken the wraps off its newest project. The new game will be called Star Wars 1313 and it focuses on the bounty hunters in the Star Wars universe. Geoff Keighley of GameTrailers TV was invited to Lucasfilm to get the world premiere of Star Wars 1313, and while the studio is not quite ready to show off everything, it did reveal just enough. Star Wars 1313 will be set on Coruscant, the capital world in the Star Wars galaxy, on Level 1313, and is all about bounty hunters. LucasArts did not reveal the exact bounty hunter we will get to play as, but the speculation of a young Boba Fett could be accurate (or far off). The game will be played from a third-person perspective and LucasArts is using state of the art motion capture to make sure every character moves realistically. Skywalker Sound and Industrial Light & Magic will be helping out to develop this mature Star Wars game, which should help return the series to prominence.
More on Star Wars 1313 will be revealed during E3 in the next several days, including the first gameplay footage. You can keep it tuned right here for all the information on this new Star Wars franchise. LucasArts now has the website up for 1313, but you need to pass an age gate first. The website is pretty barren right now, however it should fill up before long.
