Amy Hennig's Star Wars Game to Match Uncharted's Genre; Will Have "Unprecedented Visuals"

Former Naughty Dog Creative Director Amy Hennig joined Dead Space developer Visceral Games to work in the same capacity on an upcoming Star Wars title, and two career opportunity ads seeking a Senior Design Director and a Senior Art Director have popped up, giving more information on what said game might entail. (Amy Hennig, PC, PS4, Visceral games, Xbox One)

Hard to tell

Here's hope for proper Force Unleashed. This idea was so promising it hurts it didn't really deliver.
ShinMaster  +   549d ago
Star Wars 1313 WAS like Uncharted...
Set pieces reminiscent of the collapsing building or falling planes in the Uncharted games, the platforming, yeah

Sounds good. Uncharted + Star Wars should be pretty solid.
alexkoepp  +   549d ago | Well said
Sounds good. Uncharted never appealed to me being a tomb raider clone with a male character, should be good being star wars instead. Really a shame 1313 isn't coming.
ShinMaster  +   548d ago
@ alexkoepp

Ok we get it, you love Xbox. At least make realistic comments.
Rhaigun  +   548d ago

All I heard in your statement was, "I won't play Sony's Tomb Raider clone, but I'll play the Star Wars Tomb Raider clone."

So hypocritical.
Morpheuzpr  +   548d ago

Funny thing is the new Tomb Raider has more of Uncharted than Uncharted had of the original Tomb Raider.
KendrickLamar  +   549d ago
I thought EA was working on Battlefront from DICE.

Why didn't she just jump onto their project instead if Visceral's?
Abriael  +   549d ago
because Ea is working on several Star Wars games
Sevir  +   549d ago
They have the Star Wars ip for 10 years. And most of their studio are working on Star Wars games. DICE, Visceral and Bioware all have Star Wars games in devrlopment! I'm excited for this game! It's gonna be awesome.
joab777  +   549d ago
And theres an fos star wars being made by DICE.

Isnt it strange how we all wanted a Star Wars like Uncharted and now Hennig is working on it. Wierd!!
curtis92  +   549d ago
not enough FPS in star wars universe IMO.
Irishguy95  +   548d ago
Also too many Tps...
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   549d ago
A good star wars game is needed
deathisgamesok  +   549d ago
I think Star Wars 1313 looked to have similarities to Uncharted gameplay wise. That's what got me excited about that game. And it looked really great graphics wise too. This has the potential to become a really great game.
Dirtnapstor  +   549d ago
Yes, if she has her hands in it, good things will come.
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   549d ago
That's what he said?

Even though it's sad that she left Naughty Dog I'm very excited about this game.
andrewsqual  +   549d ago
This should be great. Would have been even better if she went back to Crystal Dynamics after so many years after working on games like Pandemonium, Soul Reaver and the Legacy of Kain games :)
joab777  +   549d ago
Me too. But Druckman is capable. He wrote some little game that won a couple awards last year I think...lol!

And Naughty Dog also snagged the person responsible for how Halo 4 looked on 360.

And we gonna get a proper Star Wars game too.
CrossingEden  +   549d ago
Could it be...the return of Star Wars 1313? Please let it be true. ಥ_ಥ
Lukas_Japonicus  +   549d ago
We can only hope.
WeAreLegion  +   549d ago
The creative director on that works at Sony now, ironically enough.
andrewsqual  +   549d ago
Hopefully not, we don't need another Unreal Engine 3 game.
MidnytRain  +   549d ago
You kidding? That E3 vid was sick.
joab777  +   549d ago
I know that there are a ton of Jedi games. But now I want another one! But 1313 would be cool too.
yewles1  +   549d ago
Oh boy...
Pinkdolphinyfg  +   549d ago
Honestly its good to see developers going out of their comfort zone and trying something ambitious.
elninels  +   549d ago
Is that sarcasm?
tigertron  +   549d ago
Star Wars 1313? I hope so.
TheRedButterfly  +   548d ago
; n ; PLEASE!!!
BattleTorn  +   549d ago
Any one know if the Star Wars 1313 trademarks are still kept?
listenkids  +   549d ago
I was hoping for a slower paced game, in line with Viscerals previous titles. Won't complain either way, until I've seen it.

Hope to see news from all studios working on Star Wars games come E3/Gamescom.

Sounds a lot like Star Wars 1313
MidnytRain  +   549d ago
Nodoze  +   549d ago
Cannot wait! I wonder if she was feeling restricted with Uncharted? There is only so much you can do.

Here her imagination can run wild.
nucky64  +   549d ago
the article says the game is a "third-person, action adventure".....the UC games are just that - it isn't like she's doing a completely different genre at all.
MysticStrummer  +   549d ago
Yeah but any sci fi universe has a lot more possibility to it, for both story and action. A lot more things are suddenly plausible in that setting.
nucky64  +   548d ago
mystic - these are games - ANY universe has lot of possibilitie.....since they aren't real, the devs can do whatever they want.
JohnS1313  +   549d ago
Amy Hennig doesn't work on the actual games. She isn't a graphics artist or programmer. She won't have anything to do with how great the game looks or plays. They have other people who do that stuff. Naughty Dog has the best people in the industry work on their games. They even made their own tools for the PS3. EA doesn't do that.
kevinsheeks  +   549d ago
So you basically devalue amy and then hype up naughty dog like she did nothing nice john ;)
Rickgrimes95  +   549d ago
"Develop and lead the creation of innovative and engaging game mechanics through iterative prototyping while maintaining EA’s high standard of quality."
Made me laugh
Kennytaur  +   549d ago
I hope they actually make it feel like a franchise of its own and not like a copycat with a lick of Star Wars paint. And I'd prefer it to be more open than Uncharted, I want to explore the far away planets and cities.
hkgamer  +   549d ago
wasn't she just a writer? what was her job at naughty dog?
ABeastNamedTariq  +   549d ago
She was the creative director of Uncharted. And wrote or co-wrote it I believe.
Dagexon  +   549d ago
I think this could be 1313 as that looked a lot like uncharted
JohnS1313  +   549d ago
Sounds like BS. Amy Hennig only worked on the stories so she won't be making the graphics look great. But how many times have we heard about how great a Star Wars game will be and have it come out mediocre?
Back-to-Back  +   548d ago
It will be shit like every star wars game. Star wars fans are sheep and will buy anything.
mcarsehat  +   549d ago
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!
ame22  +   549d ago
1313 which was Uncharted in space.
PS3and4_HAS_GAMES  +   549d ago
Now everyone can somewhat experience an uncharted like game.
Summons75  +   549d ago
Amy Hennings experience and writing with Uncharted....visceral games' nice game design and atmosphere design?

You've peaked my interest. Either the return of 1313 or a spiritual successor inspired by it (but using a jedi/sith instead of bland bounty hunters). Can't wait to hear and see more whatever it is!
Magaman  +   549d ago
Another BS article from a BS site. The "sources" only confirm one thing a new Star Wars game is being created. THERE IS NOTHING IN THAT about it being like Uncharted. Pull any current game development job opening posting, I'm sure it says the same thing "We want someone who can be innovative and make an amazing looking game"
aLiEnViSiToR  +   549d ago
I really hope they make great Star Wars game i would like to see some sort of hybrid of action adventure/RPG something like Mass Effect/Uncharted !!!
larrysdirtydrawss  +   549d ago
shes a writer only,correct? when has a ea console game ever looked as good as a sony exclusive naughty dog game?
jmac53  +   548d ago
Man, I hope this means the revival of Star Wars 1313. It had such a cool concept.
Sci0n  +   548d ago
The article headline does seem like BS, while Amy will be a great asset to any team she was a creative director and writer not a graphic designer. Would make more sense to say star wars will have a unprecedented story but visuals? She didn't even work on games in that department.
Gamerita  +   548d ago
this is called HYPE. they're hyping the game as much as they can to suck in the naive uncharted fans to create as much buzz as poss.

game could be good but i'm not fan of star wars i don't really get the point of this silly franchise.
