Star Wars 1313 was a big-money game in development at Lucasarts, scrapped after the publisher’s demise and seemingly never to return. We may never get to play the game, but we can look at its concept art and dream.
In June of 2011, then-LucasArts president Paul Meegan spoke publicly about his plans for turning the company around.
Brazilian artist Bruno Werneck works at Filmpaint studio, where he's been able to contribute to some of the world's biggest video game and movie projects.
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.
In November, just after purchasing LucasFilm, Disney CEO Bob Iger held a company-wide meeting.
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.
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.
For some reason, the official Facebook page for PlayStation in Germany listed Star Wars 1313 as an upcoming game for PS3 today.
Sure, 2012 was a year rife with disappointments. But it was also filled with surprises of the best sort. Since we brought everyone down last week with our list of the biggest disappointments of the year, we thought it only proper to also share the best, most welcome surprises.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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…
Are we actually seeing PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 video games at E3 and no one's admitting it?
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.
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.
A brand new Star Wars video game has been officially revealed tonight. It's called Star Wars: 1313.
