It has been known for some time that Dead Space cre­ators Vis­cer­al Games has been work­ing on a Star Wars title. The only known details about it are that it will be a third-per­son action game and may take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. 

Now new details about the plot and game­play have sur­faced via Mak­ingStar­wars. This infor­ma­tion should be tak­en with a grain of salt as there is no con­fir­ma­tion from offi­cial sources and no oth­er out­lets have cor­rob­o­rat­ed this infor­ma­tion. That said if the infor­ma­tion is true then the fol­low­ing will con­tain spoil­ers.

The game will take place after A New Hope and short­ly before The Empire Strikes Back. Play­ers will take on the role of Dodger (not the final name) a man who is forced into the crim­i­nal under­world after dodg­ing a draft into the Impe­r­i­al Army. He then leaves his home world of Alder­aan and learns to be a charm­ing and fast talk­ing crim­i­nal.  His home world is even­tu­al­ly destroyed and he becomes a want­ed sur­vivor by the Empire. Then things become worse when the Rebels destroy the Death Star and the Empire turns towards the out­er plan­ets where the rebels orig­i­nate from. 

Through a series of cir­cum­stances Dodger comes to work for Jab­ba the Hutt and learns about an upcom­ing Empire attack. He then must con­front his past and the Empire. 

Game­play details are much more scarce. Dodger is said to uti­lize a grap­ple stick/whip and blaster com­bi­na­tion for com­bat. There will be mul­ti­ple vari­ants of these weapons how­ev­er the sig­na­ture move will be to grap­ple ene­mies and shoot them.

That is all the details giv­en how­ev­er again this infor­ma­tion is not con­cen­trate and could very well be wrong. The game is set launch some­time in 2018 so offi­cial infor­ma­tion will come by this time next year.
