E3 2012: Lucas Arts announces Star Wars 1313

It is no surprise that many have begun to lose faith in a franchise as old and beloved as Star Wars. Despite the short-lived success of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, not nearly enough has been done to rekindle affection for that galaxy far far away after the new trilogy debacle.
Gametrailers TV has launched their annual Pre-E3 coverage and with it, the debut of several previously unannounced games. Among them is the reveal of a new, more mature take on the Star Wars universe entitled Star Wars 1313. 1313 is third-person, action game that will supposedly put players in the shoes of an elite bounty hunter as he works to uncover a criminal conspiracy in the underbelly of Coruscant.
Based on some of the artwork that was shown, it seems that the game will deal largely in the time period depicted in the original trilogy (you know... the good one). Not only that, but their choice to focus on bounty hunters rather than Jedi/Sith is a welcome change that I think will ultimately work in the games favor.
Lucas Arts will reveal the first gameplay demonstration on Monday night just before E3 kicks off on Tuesday. We have an appointment with Lucas Arts to see the game and will hopefully have a chance to get some hands-on time with the game over the course of the next week. Be sure to download our E3 podcasts to hear our full impressions.
I have been around since the very early days of 4Player but you may know me as “the short one” or the guy who is really into Dexter and that sweet new DmC reboot. I am a gaming enthusiast at my core and I love sharing my opinions on the subject with anyone who will listen. I am a cautious optimist and will try any game at least once. When it comes to gaming, I prefer to leave no stone unturned.
