Well, E3 2016 is all about to kick off and, not very surprisingly, Star Wars is front and centre.
EA hosted the first ever EA Play event in downtown LA.
At the event, the press got their first look at the next generation of Star Wars games and yes, we’re very excited.
The new game is being developed by Uncharted’s Amy Hennig as creative director and writer/actor Todd Stashwick working on the story with her, Jade Raymond, Scott Warner, and more have been hired onto the Visceral Games and Motive Studios project.
And if you scroll to the bottom of the page you’ll get your first look and it really looks like you’re stepping into the Star Wars universe.
The video is basically a round-up of the future games – including new Battlefront – and they all look like a lot of fun and certainly seems to be coming from real fans.
EA “confirmed that the characters central to the game’s story will be all-new. In the footage, a character that at least from behind bears more than a passing resemblance to Stashwick with a long jacket on walked out into an outpost of some sort, where Imperial banners hung, a Star Destroyer was in the far background, and TIE fighters flew by.”
We also get a hint at the new adventure game from Respawn Entertainment, “a new era for Star Wars.” It’s the one where the guys are using motion capture to create a Jedi/Sith fight… no actual game footage was revealed though.
Also, BioWare’s James Ohlen, looking back at their previous pre-Disney Star Wars games, said “outside of The Old Republic we have so many more stories to tell“. We’ll let you decide what that means exactly, but one thing is for sure, Star Wars and gaming are about to meet in a big way again…
