Oh dear, oh my, the gamescom bubble has burst and a slew of media is pouring fourth like Peter Molyneux gushing about a game 6 months from release. This post's subject shall by Star Wars 1313, the exciting new third-person title from LucasArts that many gamers remember as "not Battlefront 3." This new trailer features some gameplay (hooray), but a few seconds worth (boo) that's been cut up and spread through a minute-long trailer (double-boo) and most of the footage is taken from Star Wars 1313's E3 reveal (the dreaded triple-boo).
Luckiyl, the brief look at gameplay that we are given look... well, spectacular. LucasArts intention with this clip, flashing back and forth between gameplay and cinematic, is obviously to show the similarities between the two. Mission accomplished, because gameplay is definitely coming across as cinematic quality. So while I can whine and complain all I want about the lack of new scenery, LucasArts really delivered with this trailer.
Star Wars 1313 is an upcoming third-person action adventure title developed by LucasArts with no announced platform. Take on the role of a bounty hunter set in subterranean Coruscant, level 1313, and is said to have a more mature, gritty tone than any Star Wars game we've seen before. The protagonist of the story is currently anonymous, but rumor has it they're someone we may be familiar with.
