One of the most talked-about moments at the beginning of the Game Awards was the reveal of this specific game, Star-Wars: Eclipse. It is set in the High-Republic period, exploring a period we have never seen, there isn’t a release date but it looks to be a game to watch for. It’s developed by Quantic Dream, which is known for its narrative-focused adventure games rather than action or shooter titles.

I don’t know about you all but I’m certainly glad that this hero is getting her chance at headlining her own game, and most of all, it’s not another Batman Video Game. The Studio, Monolith, who happens to have made Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, will be in charge of this Video Game. While there is no new information regarding this game, people are fully aware of the reputation in the studio’s knowledge, and when it comes to crafting living, breathing open worlds.
