Gamescon Trailer Madness Continues with Star Wars 1313
Posted by Matt Farr on August 17, 2012
It seems every franchise going wants to get a bit dirty around the ages these days, and Star Wars is no exception. Lucasarts next games, ”1313” puts away bright skies and flashing lightsabers to give you a story about a Bounty Hunter stranded in the lower reaches of Coruscant with only wits and gadgets to survive.
We are promised third-person, cinematic action gameplay, all of which puts me a little in mind of Arkham Asylum, but hey, Arkham Asylum gameplay in the Star Wars Universe? Could be very cool if they pull it off.
Star Wars 1313 is an upcoming third-person action-adventure video game developed and to be published by LucasArts. The game will put the player in the role of a bounty hunter navigating the planet Coruscant’s subterranean level 1313 underworld as they try to uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy. The game will take a more mature, gritty direction compared to past Star Wars video games and emphasizes fast-paced, gadget and weapon based combat using tools exclusive to bounty hunters rather than Force and lightsaber based combat
It being that time of year, this new trailer has just been released for Gamescon.
