Lucasfilm Games and developer Quantic Dream have announced they are working on a brand-new Star Wars game called Star Wars Eclipse.
The game was revealed with a cinematic trailer that shows the game will take place during the High Republic era. Just like Quantic Dream’s previous games like Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human, Star Wars Eclipse will feature player choices and branching narratives.
No platforms or a release date was announced.
Star Wars Eclipse is the first video game to be set in an uncharted region of the Outer Rim during The High Republic era, known as the golden age of the Jedi. The game will build upon Quantic Dream’s expertise in delivering deeply branching narratives and will go beyond their already established acclaim. Player’s choices will be at the heart of the experience, as every decision can have a dramatic impact on the course of the story.
Crafted by a diverse team of writers, game creators, and interactive storytelling experts, all with a deep affinity for the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars Eclipse will feature new places to explore through untold stories with unique characters, each with their own path, abilities, and roles to play.
Star Wars Eclipse is currently in early development in Paris, France, and Montreal, Canada and will be published globally by Quantic Dream. The team is recruiting in both locations for top talents in the world to work on this exciting new project.
