Yeah, That Cancelled Star Wars Game Looked Pretty Cool

The trademark for Star Wars 1313 has been abandoned, according to the mark's filing with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Though that game was canceled last spring, this is as sure as sign as any that the concept, which wowed everyone at E3 2012, is completely dead. » 1/18/14 4:28pm 1/18/14 4:28pm

A Good Look At Maybe The Best Star Wars Game We Never Got

While we've seen some of Star Wars 1313, the now-cancelled big-money Star Wars game in development at Lucasarts before Disney took over, today we're getting to see a lot more of what was planned for the title courtesy of some concept art. » 10/29/13 1:00am 10/29/13 1:00am

Even Horrible Games Get Their Due at the Game Marketing Awards

It pleases me to know that despite the shiny circular piece of crap inside every copy of Kinect Star Wars, there's still a place where the folks responsible for the brilliant "Girl Vader" short can feel like the winners they really are. » 4/18/13 1:00pm 4/18/13 1:00pm

Before It Was Cancelled, Star Wars 1313 Was Going To Be About Boba Fett

We've learned a great deal about Star Wars 1313 over the past few months, and today we've got one more huge detail thanks to a reliable Kotaku source: last year, just before E3, LucasArts shifted focus and turned it into a game about the masked bounty hunter Boba Fett. » 4/04/13 11:00am 4/04/13 11:00am

The Strange Status of Star Wars: 1313, A Hot Game With an Uncertain…

It's not unusual for a newly-revealed video game to disappear for eight months. It's not weird to be amazed by a game and then neither see nor hear anything about it for a while. » 2/28/13 4:00pm 2/28/13 4:00pm

Last One to the Giant Desert Truck Gas Station is a Rotten Egg

Jan Urschel is a concept artist currently employed at Lucasarts' Singapore studio, where he's working on 1313, the first big Star Wars game in years that isn't set before the classic trilogy. Or, at least, too far before it. » 10/10/12 2:00am 10/10/12 2:00am

Because You Need to See More Bums & Strippers From the Star Wars

That old Ben Kenobi really was a damn fool. Mos Eisley wasn't the galaxy's most wretched hive of scum and villainy. It wasn't even Tatooine's (um, Jabba's Palace?)! No, you want scummy villains, you head to the planet where all the action is: Coruscant. » 8/26/12 11:00pm 8/26/12 11:00pm

1313 Will Take You Down to Star Wars Hell

It's always pretty clean and well-lit in Star Wars movies, isn't it? Even a place as wretched as the Mos Eisley cantina seems like it wouldn't have a problem passing a health code inspection. So, where does all the dirt go in the Skywalker-verse? Apparently, it's all going into Star Wars 1313. » 8/24/12 11:45am 8/24/12 11:45am

Oh Man, This New Star Wars Game Looks Gorgeous

We have no idea how well the newest Star Wars game, 1313, plays. From what little of it we've seen, it appears to be your standard third-person, cover-based shooter. » 8/14/12 4:56am 8/14/12 4:56am

Who’s Making Star Wars 1313? A Rebel Alliance Inside George Lucas’…

It's a transitional time for the video game division of the kingdom built by Star Wars. It's been about two years since Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, the last full-blown game released by LucasArts. TFUII got blasted as a major disappointment and squandered the goodwill built up by its predecessor. Then, severe… » 6/14/12 10:00am 6/14/12 10:00am

Why Star Wars 1313 Doesn't Let You Be a Jedi

Don't get too attached to the guy you see shooting blasters and jumping from ship in Star Wars 1313's screenshots and videos. He's just a placeholder character plopped into place for the purposes of the game's unveiling. » 6/06/12 5:00pm 6/06/12 5:00pm

Star Wars: 1313 Looks Good Enough to Rip the Ears Off a Gundark

We saw a pretty muddy clip yesterday, but today Lucasarts has released official media for its upcoming Star Wars title 1313. And, yeah, at least visually, the thing looks great. » 6/05/12 8:15pm 6/05/12 8:15pm
