LucasArts new Star Wars 1313 will take gamers to a very dark place

Jun. 1, 2012by:

Do you remember that scene in ATTACK OF THE CLONES where Obi Wan and Anakin have to travel to the seedy surface of Coruscant to find Padme's assassin? That location has been featured a bit on THE CLONE WARS but has not been widely explored in STAR WARS. Until now.

At E3 (June 5-7), LucasArts will unveil their "mature" STAR WARS video game, entitled STAR WARS 1313.

The game is going to focus on "criminal intrigue" and traditional weapons like blasters. This looks like the first STAR WARS game not to focus on The Force.

"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, " LucasArts President Paul Meegan said in a statement. "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."

While there are only a handful of STAR WARS video games that I have really gotten into, this does sound like an interesting concept. LucasFilm has registered the game's title across various merchandising platforms which means they are planning a major push behind this game.

What do you think of this new direction in the STAR WARS mythos?

Pre-new trilogy, any Star Wars game would have me excited. Post-new trilogy, I don't want to give George Lucas a fucking cent of my money.

well, a mature star wars game is a step in the right direction, but no force well thats about 10 steps in the wrong direction. Nice picture by the way

Yeah, fire that President, because he doesn't know anything.

As for the game, I could honestly care less about the clone wars, and other than my 18 year nephew who doesn't know any better, I don't know anyone who would care. All the best Star Wars games are the ones from Expanded Universe (Shadow, Forces, Academy, Squadron) and the Old Republic (1&2...damn BioWare, ya should've just done KOTOR3.).

"Not to Focus on the Force"

Ummm...Dark Forces, Rebel Assault, Rogue Squadron, the entire X-Wing franchise, Bounty Hunter, Shadow of the Empire for N64...

Anywho, sounds like this might be Lucasarts attempt at an Arkham Asylum/Mass Effect-style game. Which could indeed be good. At minimum, we'll get another epic 4-minute trailer like the ones they made for the Old Republic and Force Unleashed 2...little mini-movies that capture everything awesome about Star Wars far better than the prequels ever accomplished.

Unlike anything we have seen in the last hmmm... let's say 15 years within the Star Wars Universe... the Star Wars games are rarely a let down. So, I'm in.

BTW Republic Commando, while having nothing to do with Jedis or the "force" was awesome. I'm surprised they never released a sequel to it.

Hrrrrgh DARK FORCES?! Before they turned Kyle Katarn into a supersoldier Jedi in the sequels, he was just a normal human spy for the rebel alliance!

Anyway, this *could* be good, but it could also be LucasArts' attempt at a generic chest-high shooter. So yeah.

If one 1. we see her face? 2. If her stomach didn't like the arizona. But the game sounds cool. I always pray for a M rated star wars game LOL and a R rated star wars movie. Why not it could happen. like they use the force to melt heads and crush bones :_

With a body like that, she can keep the helmet on. I could care less, I'd tag her for days.

Favorite Star Wars video games? Shadows of the Empire, Battlefront, Rebel Assault, Dark Forces, and the first Rogue Squadron.

Considering TOR is going F2P soon

They are going to need to push something because that XBOX dance game flopped and TOR was a total let down (started out solid, ended up being a crock of poodoo). So just like everything else...when we want to attract the masses LETS JUST MAKE IT DARK! Probably just going to be a Mass Effect clone anyways...looking forward to that cyberpunk game by the guys that did Witcher series...now thats a geekboy's dream come true by a solid ass team of devs.
