LucasArts Shows Off New Game: Star Wars 1313

on June 1, 2012 2:30 PM

Now, if you’re like most people, you’re probably wondering what the hell is the 1313 for? Apparently District 1313 is the part of the Coruscant underworld where Star Wars 1313 will take place. This will be one of the few Star Wars games where you as the protagonist aren’t a Jedi or force user of some kind, and the polar opposite of the recent Force Unleashed series.

Players will be a bounty hunter, working in what is supposed to be the most dangerous place in the galaxy, the seedy underbelly of the galactic capitol. While all the cool bounty hunter tricks and toys may impress for a while, you have to wonder how many fans out there would prefer to be Boba Fett over Luke Skywalker. Hopefully enough, because the LucasArts is going to be risking a large investment in a side of their genre that is usually relegated to books.
