VIDEO: "Star Wars: 1313" Debuts as Gritty, Cover-Based Action Game

Gorgeous E3 2012 demo shows a new look for Star Wars

Running on a high-end PC, the official demo unveiling of Star Wars: 1313 is a real looker. This one's all about bounty hunters, putting players on level 1313 of Coruscant's seedy underbelly. Check out the gorgeous debut clip below.

 

 

It's unclear how well LucasArts will pull off the "mature, gritty" take on Star Wars, but it's certainly looking nice. Here's a more detailed plot description:

 

Named for Level 1313, a ruthless criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet of Coruscant, the game puts players in control of a deadly bounty hunter as he uses an arsenal of exotic weaponry to hunt down his marks and uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy. Star Wars 1313 emphasizes epic set pieces and fast-paced combat with a hero who uses human skills and gadgets, rather than supernatural Force powers, to make his way through this dangerous world.
