Star Wars 1313 - a new 'darker' Star Wars game...

LucasArts have announced Star Wars 1313, a supposedly darker take on Star Wars folklore that follows the adventures of a bounty hunter working his way through the criminal underworld of Level 1313 on Coruscant.

We're promised "exotic weaponry", and "awe-inspiring cinematic sequences" and a much more mature theme than we would usual expect from a Star Wars game.

According to LucasArts president Paul Meegan, "Star Wars 1313 dives into a part of the Star Wars mythos that we've always known existed, but never had a chance to visit."

LucasArts are making full use of the Lucasfilm facilities - including help from Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound - but as we've seen from the last couple of LucasArts produced games in the saga, all the impressive code and pretty graphics in the world can't save a dull game.

Platforms and dates are expected to be unveiled at E3 at some point in the next week...

Star Wars

Star Wars is a science fiction film series created by George Lucas. It debuted in 1977 and the first film was quickly retitled to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. It was followed by two sequels - The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983. A trilogy of prequel films were launched in 1999 with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In 2015 Star Wars returned to the screens for a new trilogy under the control of Disney with The Force Awakens directed by J J Abrams.

A series of spin-offs were launched in 2016 with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One and 2017 will see the second film in the new trilogy, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.

Another spin-off will be released in 2018 - Solo - which tells the story of Han Solo before the original Star Wars film and 2019 will round off the third trilogy with the untitled Episode IX.

A fourth trilogy of films has been announced for release after 2020 which will be overseen by Rian Johnson and they will feature entirely new characters and an entirely separate story.

In addition, there are the TV series The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and a new as yet untitled live action series due to debut some time after 2020.
