Today, it was confirmed by Lucas Arts that it will be giving gamers a look at a new project involving its popular Star Wars franchise. The video game footage will be made available to the public on May 31. Furthermore the company revealed that a gameplay demo will be available on the show floor this June during the E3. The first footage of the game will be shown exclusively on Spike TV during the show by Game Trailers on the channel.
As of now, no further details were revealed by the company. However, Lucasfilm has been giving out hints for a new project since earlier this month. In the start of May, the company filed a trademark and registered different domains for Star Wars 1313. This could mean that the new project might be named after the registered domains.
Lucasfilm has recently released an exclusive title on the Xbox 360 for its Kinect controller. The game, Kinect Star Wars was made available on April and was met with mixed reviews from players and critics both. The game follows the story from the hit film Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, but gamers got the opportunity to replay other memorable scenes from other movies of the franchise
According to the filed trademark documents, Lucasfilm Entertainment Company ltd. covered different sections and services that include new toys, books, social networking applications and interactive games. The name Star Wars 1313 gives us a little hint on what to expect too. According to official Star Wars entertainment media, the name CT-1313 has been used as an alias by Boba Fett.
When the news of trademarks started appearing over the internet, fans were excited particularly about a possibility of a new movie. This is because in summer 2011, the renowned director Joe Johnston revealed that he was chasing after George Lucas to make a new Star Wars movie that would feature the bounty hunter himself. But after the details of the trademark arrived, it is confirmed that there is no new movie coming. However, as it was expected, Lucasfilm is indeed making a new game. No further details on the gameplay or the platform availability have been confirmed yet.
