Star Wars Games at E3 2002

At the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) LucasArts revealed some information about the development of some new games. Bounty Hunter, The Clone Wars, Galaxies, and Knights of the Old Republic were discussed.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (GameCube, PlayStation 2)
You are Jango Fett, the galaxy’s most dangerous bounty hunter, hired to hunt down the elusive leader of a mysterious cult – dead or alive. Through 18 action-packed levels across six diverse worlds, face off against galactic scum, fearsome beasts, and brutal competition that stand between you and your prey: a deranged dark Jedi. This hunt will lead you to the darkest corners of the Star Wars universe where no one else has dared to go, but you are the fearless, ruthless, and relentless Jango Fett. For the galaxy’s most wanted, there is no place to hide…

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (GameCube, PlayStation 2)
It starts where Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones ends. As Jedi Anakin Skywalker, Mace Windu or Obi-Wan Kenobi, you lead the Republic Army in the greatest battles of the epic Clone Wars. Your directive: to stop the Separatists from reassembling an ancient Sith weapon of mass annihilation.

Star Wars: Galaxies: An Empire Divided (PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox)
LucasArts today announced its intent to develop versions of the company’s highly anticipated first game of its Star Wars® Galaxies™ online series for Xbox™ Live and PlayStation®2. Specific release dates for the Star Wars Galaxies-branded massively multiplayer games for the two next generation console platforms will be announced at a later time. This December LucasArts will release a Windows PC version of the game, developed by Sony Online Entertainment, titled Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided™.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (PC, Xbox)
Engage in this saga set in the Golden Age of the Republic – over 4,000 years before the first Star Wars film, when both Jedi and Sith number in the thousands. With the Galaxy reeling from a recent conflict with the Dark Lords, the ongoing battle between the Jedi and the Sith rages on. Your actions determine the outcome of this colossal galactic war – and your destiny as a Jedi.
