Star Wars video games are surely no stranger to your everyday consoles, as Lucasfilm’s gaming branch has been crafting some top-notch digital worlds to discover ever since the early ’90s. With a hefty catalog filled with everything from RPGs to racing games under the now Disney-run subsidiary’s belt, they’re looking to deliver on an entirely new frontier. The upcoming epic Star Wars Eclipse will revisit the Republic Era and deliver a narrative-enriched action tale, and the game has just released its first trailer.
Developed by Quantic Dream, the French masterminds behind Heavy Rain, the highly-anticipated trailer is jam-packed with an onslaught of astral combat. Filled with an abundance of playable characters, each individual one hones their own backstory and role that ultimately plays an integral role over the course of the game. Moreover, each decision made throughout has long-term implications that will interrupt your player’s journey along the way. While these particular characters have not been unveiled, the trailer still provides a glimpse of household names like Yoda and C-3PO, as well as memorable locations like the Jedi Temple. Above all else, its visual prowess is almost too good to be true, with graphics that go to show just exactly how powerful these next-gen consoles are.
Declared to be in its early stages of development at the recently-held 2021 Game Awards, the first look at Star Wars Eclipse guarantees that fans of the series are in for one crazy ride upon its release. Although, considering no release date accompanies this visually captivating trailer, don’t get your hopes up too soon.
