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.

I'm not sure the world, let alone this E3, needs another third-person, cover-based shooter, but just seeing the "classic" Star Wars universe make a video game return is good enough for me. For now.

In the gallery above you'll find three gameplay clips (direct-feed, not capped off a livecast) and a bunch of screenshots.

It's definitely made with next gen consoles in mind, it's too much of a coincidence for this to happen with two games (this and Watch Dogs), and due to the very high level of particle effects and geometry detail I wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be running on UE4.

It would take a hell of a lot of work to make these look anywhere near decent on the current gen because you would have to remove said complex geometry and particle effects and replace them from the ground up. No developer will do this just for the flagship edition on PC, not in this fashion. It's not case of DX11 slapped on top, this was done from scratch.
