Visceral's Star Wars game "Like 1313"



Visceral's  mysterious Star Wars project will bear similarities to 1313, the cancelled 3rd person action game from LucasArts, and Sony's Uncharted series, according to voice actor Nolan North, something that many fans are looking forward too since lets face it, it looked pretty good. 

According to North, EA and Visceral's game is loosely modeled after Naughty Dog's Uncharted series.

"If you're a big fan of Amy Hennig and her style of story, she's gone to EA and is going to reboot a brand new Star Wars franchise in the style of Uncharted," he said. "I happen to know a lot about it and it's going to be awesome."

 North also said "it's different," but "along the same lines."

Way back when In 2013, Star Wars overlord Disney and EA agreed to make the publisher the exclusive creator of Star Wars console games. In 2014 it was confirmed Hennig would co-write a new Star Wars game in development at Visceral Games.

Visceral Games' Star Wars title is rumoured to be an open-world game, though EA has not yet commented if this is true. However, i think we can agree that an open world Star Wars game would be very very cool.

Star Wars 1313 was originally announced at E3 2012 as a third-person adventure game from LucasArts. Early footage of the game, which was set to feature Boba Fett as its protagonist and show a dark, edgy side to the universe being primarily set on level 1313 on Coruscant. 

Star War 1313 was cancelled in April 2013 when Disney closed LucasArts. Following this, Disney abandoned 1313 and commented that the game was cancelled.
