The Next Star Wars Game Could Be an Open World RPG
MORE Star Wars games? Take my money.
It’s all but confirmed at this point: we’re getting another Star Wars game. In a job listing for a senior game designer posted through EA developer Visceral Games, more information has been revealed about the next title.
It looks like the two heads of the project are going to be Ubisoft producer Jade Raymond and Uncharted writer Amy Hennig, and the posting gives us a small tease as to what we could look forward to in the new game. They’re looking for someone to contribute “in areas of hero control/mechanics, AI behaviors, combat/weapons, class design, skills/progression, enemy design, story and boss encounters.”
Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it? I’ve been playing a little bit of Star Wars Battlefront here and there, and it’s been a lot of fun to dive into missions with friends or even play as an Imperial or Rebel (or the occasional main hero and villain) in the bigger multiplayer matches. But if we’re going to be getting a Star Wars game that allows us to explore worlds, tackle missions and maybe even customize our own characters, I’m all in.
What about you? Would you be excited about a Star Wars RPG?
