Lucas Arts has released some gameplay for the upcoming game Star Wars 1313. Lucas Arts isn't revealing much at this point, but we do know the basics on 1313's setting. It takes place between the trilogies, and is set on level 1313 of the Imperial capital, Coruscant. Coruscant has over 5,000 levels, and 1313 is a part of the planet's underworld, a seedy place full of criminals and lawlessness. The setting itself has never been delved into all that deeply in the girth of Star Wars novels, but LucasArts hopes that this will provide an appropriate stage to tell a mature Star Wars narrative.
Lucas Arts stated:
"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," Paul Meegan, the president of LucasArts, 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."
"The hero of 1313 won't use supernatural Jedi powers. Instead, he'll use "human skills and gadgets." Think: extraterrestrial MacGyver. Or interplanetary Sherlock Holmes."
The game is likely to be released in 2013.
