During The Game Awards 2021, Lucasfilms and Quantic Dream gave us our first look at their upcoming game Star Wars Eclipse. And we promise this is a game – not a movie. The trailer looks and sounds stunning—something one would expect to come from this franchise. And while we don’t have too much information on what we can expect, we will be rewatching this trailer for days to come.
Star Wars Eclipse is the first game set within the High Republic era of the Star Wars franchise and will feature intricate branching action-adventure style gameplay. They have shared that it can be experienced in many ways and will put the destinies of multiple playable characters in your hands. Quantic Dream is known for their interactive narrative titles and is perfect for bringing a Star Wars game to life.
Aside from the genre of the game and when it is set, we don’t know much else about Star Wars Eclipse, but we don’t care. The trailer introduces us to a beautiful world (movie quality worthy) that is just begging for us to dive into and explore. I am curious what characters they will focus on for the game and who will make appearances within the story itself. Hopefully, we will get more news as we get closer to the game’s release date.
And speaking of the release date. We don’t have one of those yet, either. Star Wars Eclipse is in the very early stages of development. We suggest checking back here and on their official site to keep up with news and announcements. We’ve dropped the trailer for you to enjoy below. What do you think of this new title? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
