Star Wars Eclipse, a new action-adventure game set in the High Republic era, was announced earlier today during The Game Awards 2021. You can watch the reveal trailer below:
As the first video game to be set in the era of The High Republic, the multimedia initiative that launched with publishing earlier this year, Star Wars Eclipse will feature an original story and unique new characters, each with their own paths, abilities, and roles to play in the tapestry of events that could alter the carefully balanced peace in an uncharted section of the Outer Rim.
Lucasfilm Games and Quantic Dream are developing the game. At the time of writing, it is still in the early stages of development. There is no mention of a release date or platforms that the game will be on.
Some of the video game titles you may recognise from Quantic Dream includes the likes of Detroit: Become Human, Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain. So far, it is confirmed that Star Wars Eclipse will also feature branching narrative paths similar to the aforementioned titles. Players can expect to shape the fate of the galaxy, set hundreds of years before the events of the Skywalker sage depicted in the Star Wars films.
