Star War 1313 screenshots have popped up on Sony Germany’s Facebook page, albeit older shots, it indicates that PS3 will be one of the systems the shooter is release on. Announced by Lucasarts pre-show at E3 2012, platforms other than PC were never confirmed, leading the public to wonder if it was a this-gen or next-gen console release. A Lucasarts representative has said the listing is “not accurate” and that it has no announcements to make regarding the game at this time. So, make of this what you will.
Lucasarts was purchased by Disney in October last year, prompting the developer to assure fans the title’s development was not affected. Star Wars 1313 is slated for release in 2013 on PC. Via Playnews.

Siliconera has dug up a bunch of concept art for something called Battlefront Online. The site claims Slant Six was working on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game in 2010, but it was cancelled before announcement; contemporary rumours told the same story. There are no further details on the lost project, which is distinct from the recent headline favourite Battlefront 3, Free Radical’s shelved effort. See the art through the break.

Star Wars 1313 has a new video available, which is a short documentary called Descent to the Underworld. Along with providing a bit of new information on the title, the video also shows off some rather nice artwork depicting the criminal underworld of Level 1313, deep below the surface of Coruscant. In the game, players will step into the shoes of a bounty hunter – instead of a Jedi this time – and while LucasArts has yet to announce platforms or release window for Star Wars 1313, some suspect it may be an early next-generation console release. We’ll see. Thanks, Edo.
