LucasArts has officially announced its newest title, Star Wars 1313. The name is derived from Level 1313 of Coruscant, a “dark and mature” criminal underworld located deep beneath the surface of the planet. Players will be able to control a bounty-hunter, using an array weaponry and skills to hunt down and take out marks while unraveling a criminal conspiracy. According to the press release, “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.”
As pointed out over at Joystiq, the teaser image above features a shuttle and Tie Fighters from the original trilogy, so it would seem that at least a portion of the game is relegated to that period of the Star Wars saga.
More details will be provided at E3, which kicks off this coming Tuesday.
