A brand new rumor particulars what the story of Star Wars Eclipse would possibly truly be about and it is pretty attention-grabbing. Last yr at The Game Awards, a closely rumored Star Wars game from Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream was formally revealed. The teaser trailer was fairly imprecise and did not reveal an excessive amount of data, however confirmed glimpses of characters like Yoda, a various galaxy of areas and folks, in addition to lightsabers. It was an thrilling teaser, however left a whole lot of questions on after we may play it, what it will play like, what the story could be, and so forth. It was confirmed that the game could be set within the High Republic period, putting it a whole bunch of years earlier than any of the Star Wars movies.
A brand new report courtesy of the Sacred Symbols podcast (transcribed by VGC), which is hosted by former IGN author Colin Moriarty, affords some new particulars on the game. For starters, Moriarty famous that primarily based on what he’d seen, Star Wars Eclipse is “not even really in production yet” and the game remains to be in its infancy. However, the story is being written by Quantic Dream founder David Cage and will likely be closely rooted within the politics of the Star Wars universe. The game is reportedly set 200 years earlier than Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and can focus on a human-esque, 30-something yr outdated named Sarah who’s aside of some sort of empire generally known as The Zaraan. This empire prides itself on its political and army aggression, however that poses an issue when Sarah marries a softer character named Xendo. You can learn an outline of the story courtesy of VGC’s transcription of the Sacred Symbols podcast under.
“[The Zaraan] prides itself on political and military aggression and similar to what you find elsewhere in Star Wars there’s little differentiation between males and females when it comes to roles and responsibilities. But, there’s an interesting wrinkle, when Zaraan marries, their nuptials carry interesting military implications as they become one governing unit that works together. This is a problem, because Sarah, a fanatical true believer in the violence and criminality regularly demonstrated by her empire, is married to a character named Xendo, who is a far softer touch. Part of the game seems to revolve around these two characters and their relationship.”
As of proper now, it feels like Star Wars Eclipse is years away from truly releasing. This aligns with rumors that the game could possibly be as distant as 2027, although that is merely only a rumor. It was reported that the game was revealed final yr as a approach to curiosity potential new hires for the game.
