Star Wars 1313 has been announced as LucasArts' "secret" game, and will make its formal debut at E3 next week.

Star Wars 1313 has players take control of a lethal bounty hunter in a "never-before-seen dark and mature world".  It will be a third-person cinematic action-adventure game that will bring to life the Coruscant underworld.

The game is named for Level 1313, a ruthless criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet of Coruscant.  In Star Wars 1313 players will control a deadly bounty hunter and use his arsenal of exotic weaponry to hunted marked targets and uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy.

As opposed to most Star Wars games which let you play as a Jedi and wield the force, players in Star Wars 1313 will instead use human skills and gadgets. After all, hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side.

"We're excited to share one of the projects LucasArts has been hard at work developing," said LucasArts President Paul Meegan. "Star Wars 1313 dives into a part of the Star Wars mythos that we've always known existed, but never had a chance to visit. We are committed to bringing the best gameplay experience and visual fidelity to life and I truly believe the work we are showcasing at E3 will speak for itself."

While I'm sure some are bummed out that it won't be a new Battlefront game or some other sequel, I'm actually excited with this new approach LucasArts is taking.  Hopefully we can finally get a decent bounty hunter game. Details are scarce now, but look forward to its grand debut at E3 next week.  There is a website for the game, although it doesn't contain any information at this point.
