Lucas Arts has unveiled the first in-game footage of Star Wars 1313 – via SpikeTV – and let us tell you that you won’t believe your eyes when you watch it. To put it simple; this footage proves that PC gaming is entering the realm of CG graphics. Just forget everything you’ve ever read and watch this E3 footage of Star Wars 1313. It looks spectacular. According to the team, the demo was running on a high-end PC with an Nvidia card. Enjoy and keep in mind that what you’re about to see are realtime, in-engine graphics!
What’s also interesting here is that Star Wars 1313 is powered by Epic’s Unreal Engine 3. As Mark Rein revealed a couple of hours ago, the game looked amazing (duh) and was made with Unreal Engine 3. This – alongside with the Samaritan tech demo – proves that Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 is future-proof, therefore we can’t wait to see what the company has in store for us with Unreal Engine 4.
Since it’s powered by Unreal Engine 3, it will also be interesting to see whether or not Lucas Arts will port this game to X360/PS3 and how these versions will look compared to the PC one. No platforms have been announced as of yet, though we can pretty much say that PC will be definitely one of them. Star Wars 1313’s characters and lighting system look astounding and we’ll be really impressed if they company manages to have similar visuals in current generation consoles.
As said and before, Unreal Engine 4 will debut this Thursday, so stay tuned for more!
