Lucas Arts has just announced their new Star Wars title 1313 where you'll play as a Bounty Hunter. While no specifics have been confirmed, such as which bounty hunters you'll play, it will be a third person shooter.
Would have rather had it be on tatooine than coruscant. I just hope it has online
I think corosant makes more sense. More attacking politicians and more raid opportunities. tatooine would have restricted the player to areas close to mos eisly. Corosant is more interesting to explore, and makes more sense in the gameplay space, since the locations are more diverse I hope its open world personally. That would be really awesome. Judging by the concept art in the thumbnail, its a game taking place after episode 3... maybe stuff about how the senate was dismantled.. Like I told people, don't go expecting BF3... go expecting Jar Jar dancing for kinect. Since I did that, I was pleasantly surprised
hope it has a dancing mode for Kinect........................ ............................... ............................... ............................... ............................... ............................... ............................... ............ jaykay
Star Wars Bounty Hunter was awesome and I like the combat is going to focus on hand to hand and gadgets: all human skill and no force powers. Probably going to be Boba Fett as 1313 was part of one of his alias'.
1313 is in fact the planet of scum and villainy in the star wars universe. Source: latest gt.tv episode interview with the developers.
"Like I told people, don't go expecting BF3... go expecting Jar Jar dancing for kinect." Something I think a lot of people need to do more often, hope for the best but expect the worst.
Wait....I'm confused, what's the difference between Battlefield 3 and Jar Jar dancing for kinect? Both equally disappointing in my eyes...
This will be of 3 games Lucas Arts has coming out. They got a tie fighter game coming out and of course Battlefront III.
I don't know about SWBF3 coming out any time soon. Ever since it was found out Spark Unlimited wasn't developing that game, then there is pretty much no information regarding who might be making it. But yeah it was rumored they were developing a new Starfighter or whatever game a couple years back. Though apparently the other game they'll announce at E3 is going to be some Kinect/Wii U MMO...
Well Wenis many things go under the radar. Lucasarts and Free Radical pretty much told everybody it was coming with a press release of them working together. They likely signed on with a big/major player or went back to Rebellion. Which has a third person shooter under wraps for PC, PS3, X360. Can't say really what it is yet. Could just be their stuff. You never know. Puzzle pieces are not hard to fit if you find them though. Likely with Battlefield 3's release they will be doing everything they can to aim big with next Battlefront game. This new bounty hunter game sounds like we are in the 1313 city district. I like the concept and I will buy if it helps fund the next Battlefront. Actually they have more than just those two ATi_Elite. Rumors swirl around 4-5 game titles under wraps with Lucasarts ties to them. 1313 is just one of them. 2 of them are likely what you say. While there is still 1-2 other ones.
And the wait for Battlefront 3 is yet extended. No Battlefront, no sale LucasArts.
Yeah, but Bounty Hunter was a good game as well... if this is a similar idea, then it could be awesome.
At this point, there's no hope for it coming out this generation... I guess hopefully next gen..? I just don't understand why they haven't made a Battlefront game yet. It would fly off the shelves.
same idea with half life 3 right? Fans demand it... but valve refuses... kind of weird how all of it works
I should think Lucasarts as a company would love to get Star Wars Battlefront 3 out but it has been through several developers and ended up off the radar meaning only Lucasarts knows where it is right now. If you want to blame someone for the lack of a Battlefront 3, I would point the finger at Darrell Rodriguez (from EA) for screwing over Lucasarts as president between 2008 and 2010. I do have a feeling one of the three games in development is Battlefront 3.
Told you. These a-holes are the new Activision. They never EVER listen to what fans want. "Oh you guys want KOTOR3? Here is a mediocre single player focused MMO with a horrible storyline that you have to pay monthly. You want Battlefront 3? Here is a game where you play as some Bounty Hunter that no one gives a rat's ass about." For the love of God, how hard is it to read the damn forums and realize that people want games like KOTOR 3, Battlefront 3 and Jedi Knight 4 instead of crap like these?
Wouldn't the new Activision be a company that continually releases the same games year in year out? Sounds like exactly what you want. They don't owe you anything btw.
Becoming the new Activision does not necessarily mean they have to release the same games over the years and how in the hell could that be exactly what I want? And actually, they do owe me and people who supported them over the years a lot of things. Tell me, how many fans asked for a Knights Of The Old Republic MMO? How many fans asked for Star Wars Galaxies patches that literally raped the game? How many people asked for The Force Unleashed II in comparison to number of ones who asked for Battlefront 3, Jedi Knight 4 and KOTOR 3? I thought so. Now take your "they don't owe you anything" crap and get out...
I'm just being objective. You clearly want these sequels really bad so it's harder for you to be objective. I don't know what I would do for Timesplitters 4 but the devs or publishers do not have to release the game for me if they don't want to. It would be great if they did, but I wouldn't want to force them to make a game they themselves are not ready to make. Unless you were donating to them with the understanding they would release the sequels you want, you payed for a game, and got a game in return. That doesn't give you the right to dictate the creativity of the developers.
So by your logic Valve is like Activision? Go for it champ....
@blacktric Just because you feel entitled and whiney doesn't mean they owe you. You shelled out money for a game they made. It's as simple as that. It's not like you were sending them pizza every night or helping them with their rent/bills.
huh, well ill try my best to be optimistic but quite honestly its really going to take a lot for me to get behind anything that's not battlefront. so here's to it being a new classic and it not being a new force unleashed type let down lol. so impress me lucasarts cause its going to take a lot. EDIT: im a little more hopeful if this is indeed a MATURE (meaning M rated) game that is actually an adult star wars story with graphic violence, because it has been long over due that us adult fans get a mature star wars game. "As players take control of a lethal bounty hunter in a never-before-seen dark and mature world, Star Wars 1313 introduces an integrated development approach by bringing together great artists across the Lucasfilm organization, including LucasArts, Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm Animation Ltd. and Skywalker Sound. A third person cinematic action adventure game, Star Wars 1313 will bring to life the Coruscant underworld, the most dangerous place in the Star Wars™ galaxy. Named for Level 1313, a ruthless criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet of Coruscant, the game puts players in control of a deadly bounty hunter as he uses an arsenal of exotic weaponry to hunt down his marks and uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy. Star Wars 1313 emphasizes epic set pieces and fast-paced combat with a hero who uses human skills and gadgets, rather than supernatural Force powers, to make his way through this dangerous world." source: http://www.lucasarts.com/co...
Industrial Light & Magic is involved? sweet, these guys know how make great visuals, example is Rango :D
oh thats pretty cool then! yeah i think itll definitely be pretty cinematic judging by the description of the game.
But But But they already created a bounty hunter game way back when on the PS2 and Gamecube!!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... No Battlefront 3 once again!!! major disappointment man!!!! Could at least make a KOTOR 3!!! or another Republic Commando? Hopefully this is not the only Star Wars game revealed.
So...Force Unleashed with guns. That hasn't been done to death.
This wasn't what i was expecting hope to hear more from it but i doubt ill get this.
I thought Republic Commando was one of the best Star Wars games of (fairly) recent times. Not sure why that IP was ditched. Hope this Bounty Hunter game is a tactical TPS, like Republic Commando was a tactical FPS.
jeeez stop these endless star wars games and make the actual 5th installment of monkey island and a sequal to grim fandango for Christ sakes lol.
Yeah that'd be nice. Just a shame the talent behind those games left LucasArts a long time ago.
yeah i suppose it would be better if they left it now or maybe sell the rights to someone like telltalegames they did a great job with monkey island and im sure they would do an even better job with GF
This sounds awesome. I'll probably be a bit burned out on 3rd person shooters after Uncharted 3, Max Payne 3 and the upcoming Hitman, but i'm genuinely interested in hearing more. Glad it isn't just some sequel to kotor, battlefront, force unleashed. (anticipating tons of disagrees here. they were good games, but I'd prefer something fresh and innovative. And i like that it's described as being dark. Maybe it'll have a more mature narrative? The less it throws "I'm a Star Wars Game" in my face the more i'll probably enjoy it. I think sometimes people use licensed stuff as a crutch.
Are you really saying you wouldn't play SW Battlefront 3? Seriously?
wow.....and i was hoping for a ps move lightsaber :(
And here I was hoping for Battlefront 3 :(
Don't know why you'd do that, as it was announced it was going to be a new franchise.
I only played battlefront 2 on ps2, shit was so CASH !!
I wanted either Battlefront 3 or a new Rogue Squadron on Wii U but oh well...
Nah, Kinect SW and The Force Unleashed 2 killed off my excitement for Lucasarts and the SW franchise...R.I.P...
Prune Face confirmed as main character http://www.youtube.com/watc...
If done well, this could be an amazing game. I'm a Star Wars fan and the Bounty Hunter is such a cool character.
That is a BIG if Karum. The past 2 titles have been bug ridden and abandoned mid way through development. I have zero faith this will be any different. They should have just released Battlefront 3.
Oh yeah, definitely a big if. I live in hope though lol.
Lucas Arts never listens to it's fans. SW fans "we want Battlefront III, Republic Commando 2, Tie Fighter or a new Jedi Knight" LA "here is Lego SW, Force Unleashed, SW Kinect" SW fans "we don't want that" LA "here is Old Republic pay for it" SW fans "**** you Lucas Arts"
Love the idea of this, is lucasarts finally heading in the right direction? This really NEEDS to be open world, I cant imagine how incredible it would be to jetpack around courascant.
I smell another Gears clone.
I'd like a Assassins Creed+GTA like Star Wars Game with various vehicles and open world.
This may be my most anticipated game now. (besides GTA V) I just hope they do this game justice. (and not like the Force Unleashed) Force Unleashed made it seem like a "RPG" by having "unlocks and upgrades", I simply loath games that give you "upgrade trees" where no matter what your choices you select the same as any other person play the game would by the end. Like when everyone ends up with the same.
Interesting i'll hafta take a gander of this during E3.
They should re-make "Shadows of the Empire" That's my favorite Star Wars game.
They talked about it being a "cinematic experience" on GT last night. Despite what the Neogaf community would have you believe, that isn't a bad thing at all. A possible Uncharted inspired Star Wars experience? "We shall watch your career with great interest."
I want to play as Jango Fett again, hes one of my favourite SW characters.
Why can't LucasArts get it through their thick skulls that we just want Battlefront 3?
FAIL!!! After playing through your last 2 buggy single player titles, I have NO interest in playing another one. Battle fucking front [email protected]? I will now give up on asking. I am lumping Lucasarts in with SquareEnix, and Capcom as the biggest fuck ups this generation. They just don't get it!!
I wish they would just go for a pc exclusive multiplayer based star wars game. Screw all the market research and what has been working, just make the god damn best star wars game you can and the gamers will come! You can make something for consoles too, but god dammit make something for pc. Im not saying this because of graphics, Im saying this because you can make something completely mind blowing gameplay wise if you stick to pc.
3rd person shooter, *looks at shelf* no thanks ill pass
f'ck yeah. it's my favorite way to play.
So far the only Star Wars game I liked was Jedi Outcast about 10 years ago. THAT is the kind of game they ned to make.
