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.
