Last week word broke that LucasArts was bringing a new Star Wars title to E3, and I was excited to see what they had in store for us. Well my excitement skyrocketed as soon as the demo level cinematic begun. But first what is Star Wars 1313? Star Wars 1313 is going to be the first M-Rated Star Wars title. This game focuses around a bounty hunter set in the most dangerous place in the galaxy level 1313 of Coruscant where the worst of the criminals reside. Star Wars 1313 will be an epic action packed adventure and LucasArts is pulling out all the stops by tapping into all Lucasfilm departments, members from Industrial Light and Magic, Skywalker Sound, and Lucasfilm Animation are all coming together to create one of the most amazing gaming experiences ever.
I can say that last sentence is 100% true since we had a chance to see the game in action. Set during an early level, with a stand in lead character, they are keeping the true lead secret for now, we got to see not only blaster action, but also hand to hand combat and the games platforming aspects. But the real impressive part of the demo was the AMAZING graphics and the cinematic feel of the cut scenes and gameplay. Star Wars 1313 felt like a new Star Wars movie where we had control of the action. The gameplay is similar to Uncharted 3, cinematics flow seamlessly into action and there is huge set pieces that involve death-defying leaps and combat, and all this in the great Star Wars universe.
I was blown away by Star Wars 1313 even at this early stage, I’m really looking forward to seeing what the team has in-store for us, until enjoy this gameplay from today demo!
