Previously unseen gameplay footage of cancelled Star Wars adventure Star Wars 1313 has surfaced online, featuring bounty hunter Boba Fett.
The footage, via The Vault Archive (spotted by TechRadar) comes from the project’s former animation director, James Zachary. As noted on his blog, it includes in-progress gameplay capture used to highlight the cancelled game’s living world. Though unfinished, with missing textures, it gives us a good idea what the game would have been like playing as Boba Fett.
Star Wars 1313 was originally announced back at E3 in 2012. At the time, players were to take the role of a bounty hunter, but previous footage featured an all-new character. Disney went on to buy LucasArts in December of that year, and the game was all-but dead by March 2013.
It was reported soon after that George Lucas himself made the request for the player character to be Boba Fett. It’s taken ten years to see the game in action with Fett, outside of those who worked on it. It looks pretty similar to Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, all being told.
Speaking of Respawn, it was announced earlier this week the EA studio is working on three new Star Wars games. One is a new strategy game being co-developed by XCOM veterans, another is an all-new FPS and one is a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Which we’re very much looking forward to, given how much we liked the original.
