Fellow Star Wars geeks rejoice! While most of LucasArts recent Star Wars titles have been very Jedi-centric, their new entry Star Wars: 1313 promises to put players in the shoes of a bounty hunter, and it doesn’t hurt that game is beautiful looking, from what we’ve seen.
Though details are limited, we know that the game’s name is derived from “Level 1313” an underground criminal organization from the planet Coruscant.
