It was rumored for a long time about Star Wars 1313 and how it will feature Boba Fett similar to how Star Wars Bounty Hunter featured Jango Fett long ago. Which excited a lot of people since even though the portrayal of Boba Fett in the Star Wars movies may not be so epic, the idea of a space bounty hunter is just incredibly bad ass. However, LucasArts has yet to talk about the story and who it features other than the fact that it is a bounty hunter, but the 1313 refers to a level beneath Coruscant filled with a criminal underground.
In this new game you will be playing as a bounty hunter with an “arsenal of exotic weaponry” that you will use in search of your bounties and “uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy.” Prepare for some fast paced action and beautiful environments as a bounty hunter makes his way through this dangerous and gritty world as a human with unique skills and gadgets instead of force powers.
The game is being developed within LucasArts instead of the usual outsource of resources and will feature the great artists from LucasArts, Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm Animation Ltd. and Skywalker Sound. With an all inside team, the development can move much faster and much better as these guys have breathed Star Wars for most of their careers and lives. I can’t imagine the levels of creativity in those development rooms and cannot wait to see what they dish out in the final product. In the press release they stated this:
“‘We’re excited to share one of the projects LucasArts has been hard at work developing,’ said Paul Meegan, President, LucasArts. ‘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. 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.'”
Nothing besides an official announcement has been made unfortunately, but check out this sweet official image (also sized for your facebook timeline cover photo!). The World Premier of the gameplay footage will be shown on Spike TV through GameTrailers TV on June 4th at 10pm PT (or 12am CT).
