The cat is out of the bag, and EA developer Visceral Games has pretty much confirmed their next Star Wars title is going to be an open world action RPG. Check out the full ad below and follow this link if you’ve got the design chops for what promises to be a very complex (and awesome) job!
Heading up this project is former Ubisoft producer Jade Raymond. Joining her is Uncharted writer Amy Hennig. To say there is some power behind this game is an understatement. Those who wished for a more detailed story mode in Star Wars: Battlefront, should be smiling from ear to ear, because these two have experience with content rich games that have major story arcs.
Take a look at the opening description and tell me you are not the least bit excited:
“BRING YOUR SYSTEM GAME DESIGN SKILLS AND SAVVY AND YOUR LOVE OF STAR WARS TO VISCERAL GAMES, EMBRACING AND CONTRIBUTING TO THE PROJECT VISION IN AREAS OF HERO CONTROL/MECHANICS, AI BEHAVIORS, COMBAT/WEAPONS, CLASS DESIGN, SKILLS/PROGRESSION, ENEMY DESIGN, STORY AND BOSS ENCOUNTERS.”
Star Wars: Battlefront is a beast in digital sales. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is dominating ticket sales. The Star Wars marketing engine is spinning like a top and it will not stop anytime soon. Expect more games, more toys, and more… well… everything as long as Disney/Lucas Film can make money off licensing rights. This Geek will eat it all up until the ride is over.
The chance to play a modern tech, Star Wars RPG is mind numbing.The story-lines Visceral can borrow from are almost infinite. Can you imagine a game where you are just exploring Jakku, or Hoth, or Coruscant? Oh the possiblities, we’ll have to wait for further details. For now, off the Battlefront to play as Vader and crush some rebel scum for an hour or two…
So for everyone out there in the Nation, what do you think? Are you up for an RPG Star Wars experience? Or, are you tired of all the mass marketing? Tell us what you think – and you can do so in the comments below!
