EA to announce plans for Star Wars games at E3 2013

star wars 1313

Disney teamed up with EA to help produce more Star Wars video game titles after closing down LucasArts. The developers assigned to produce these new games include BioWare, Visceral and DICE. There are no details on what these games are going to be like, but now that E3 is coming next month, EA has announced that they will shed some more light into their plans during their E3 briefing, “The Download: EA 2013 Preview”.

One of the things I’m curious about is whether one of their plans include bringing Star Wars 1313 back into development (since the game was previously being worked on by LucasArts). Let’s just check out the trailer again and imagine it’s going to happen.

BioWare has developed Star Wars games in the past including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and The Old Republic. This has potential of being either great or disappointing, since KotOR was well received and TOR was considered a disappointment.

DICE has known for their first-person action games like Mirror’s Edge and the upcoming Battlefield 4. I can only guess that we’re going to get a first-person shooter Star Wars game from them. Other first-person shooters in the Star Wars universe that come to mind are Republic Commando and Battlefront.

As for Visceral doing a Star Wars game, they could incorporate what they have learned with the Dead Space series into this. Will it be a horror-like Star Wars game? Will it be a third-person shooter? Maybe they will be the one responsible for bringing Star Wars 1313 back to life. Let’s hope we’ll find out when E3 hits.

You’ll be able to stream EA’s E3 Briefing live on Monday, June 10th, at 1pm PT on Spike TV or at www.ea.com/e3.
