Can't contain your excitement for the upcoming open-world Star Wars game? Well, this brand-new gameplay footage won't help...
It's been a while since there has been any update on what is currently dubbed The Star Wars Project (TBA), the open-world game that's set to take place in the faraway galaxy, which will be a first for the franchise.
Star Wars is no stranger to video games, of course, and there are many other titles on the horizon, but Ubisoft's upcoming title will be the first time players will be able to explore iconic worlds and venture into deep space.
As per Ubisoft, here's the synopsis for The Star Wars Project:
Ubisoft has announced it is collaborating with Disney and Lucasfilm Games on a new story-driven open-world video game set in the Star Wars galaxy. Headed by Massive Entertainment, the project gathers some of the most experienced talents in the video games industry and will make the most of Massive’s innovative spirit and cutting-edge technologies, including the Snowdrop engine, to deliver a groundbreaking Star Wars adventure.
There's really no other information on the game, so we don't know who the playable characters will be, and nor do we know what planets will feature in the game, or how interplanetary travel will even work.
But what we do know is this project is a massive undertaking, and that the payoff is bound to be huge. And if you're looking for some idea as to what you can expect, perhaps this new fan-made gameplay footage will do just that.
Check out the video below titled "STAR WARS - Earth Sized Open World Game in Unreal Engine 5", which has been shared by the YouTube channel TeaserPlay:
The synopsis for the video reads:
Imagining a Open World "Star Wars The Mandalorian" Game in Unreal Engine 5 it's a long time that said an open-world game based on Star Wars is under development, in this video we tried to imagine this possible Game in Unreal Engine 5 with High End Graphics Features Such as Ray Tracing, Lumen, Nanite and More.
A game in which you can leave the planet at any moment and move quickly through it. Hope You Enjoy!
So, unfortunately, this isn't official gameplay footage, but it does give fans an idea as to how The Star Wars Project might look, even if the real product probably won't feature Din Djarin/the Mandalorian.
While the game is probably a few years out, at least we have The Mandalorian Season 3 to look forward to in the meantime, which premieres on Disney+ on March 1.
Check it out the official trailer for The Mandalorian Season 3 below:
As per StarWars.com, here's the official synopsis for The Mandalorian:
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
The Mandalorian Season 3 stars Pedro Pascal (Din Djarin/The Mandalorian), Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon), Carl Weathers (Greef Karga), Katee Sackhoff (Bo-Katan Kryze), Emily Swallow (The Armorer), Omid Abtahi (Dr. Pershing), Amy Sedaris (Peli Motto), and Tim Meadows and Christopher Lloyd in undisclosed roles.
The Mandalorian Season 3 will premiere on March 1 on Disney+ and will consist of eight episodes. The Mandalorian Seasons 1 and 2, The Book of Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022), and Andor (2022) are also streaming on Disney+.
