Long way down

LucasArts has raised the curtain on Star Wars 1313, a third-person shooter set within a “dark and mature world”. It’s the super secret title that the publisher teased last month.

The game is set to unravel a “criminal conspiracy” in the “most dangerous place in the Star Wars galaxy”. If you’re curious, the title refers to Level 1313, the criminal underground realm of Coruscant. Are you keeping up?

You’ll play as an unnamed bounty hunter who, crucially, relies on “human skills and gadgets, rather than supernatural Force powers”. LucasArts is keen to point out that the game will feature mature themes, and will show off "a part of the Star Wars mythos that we've always known existed, but never had a chance to visit”.

Additional details are light at the moment, but more is expected to be announced during E3.
