"Star Wars 1313" is notable for a few reasons, the foremost being that this is the very first "M" rated game from Lucas Arts Studio. It's is a gritty third-person shooter set in the crime-ridden District 1313 on Coruscant. You play as a bounty hunter. Details on the story are still a secret, seeing as this game is still very early in development.

The gameplay demo featured action that was reminiscent of the "Uncharted" series. A battle took place on two huge, hovering transports, giving us the chance to see some of the huge set pieces in action. Some death-defying scripted platforming was shown, which looked like Nathan Drake in the Star Wars universe.

Production value looked extremely high, with excellent facial mapping and top-notch voice work. "Star Wars 1313" will feature full-body motion capture performances. I wouldn't be surprised if this game gets pushed to 2014. The team wouldn't say what platforms it will be available for, which is a sign that this title is still quite young.
