    It appears we're not done yet with previously unseen footage from the cancelled Star Wars 1313 video game, as Battlefront III (another cancelled title from a bygone era) research site/team The Vault has uncovered yet another very early internal demo.



    Upon further research, this clip (along with past ones) has been uploaded to the Internet by the game's former lead gameplay animator, James Zachary -- you can check out all his work on the cancelled title here, or watch the newest piece of gameplay through the YouTube link below:

    Gameplay footage and concept art from the game haven't stopped popping up online ever since Disney shut down LucasArts and all of their projects back in 2013 as the result of years of disappointing financial performance and unreleased games due to poor management. Even though we've heard plenty about this game's many cool ideas over the years, it seems like it hadn't entered full production when it was canned, or it wasn't too far into development.



    The only official look at the game we received was a highly cinematic 'vertical slice' demo during E3 2012, and it didn't even feature Boba Fett, but a brand-new character instead. Rumors claim the game would open with the player controlling an original character, only for him to be killed off by Boba shortly afterwards, quickly establishing how he's become a fearsome bounty hunter. The rest of the game would be mostly set around Level 1313 in Coruscant, following Fett as the main character and other bounty hunters.



    As you can see in this new demo, LucasArts had a pretty clear idea of where they wanted to take the game, which probably would've been semi-open-world, but it was in the very early stages of development. Nevertheless, it's an interesting look into locales and action beats that could always pop up somewhere else -- Lucasfilm rarely 100% forgets about unused concepts and material. In fact, Level 1313 was one of the main settings in the final season of The Clone Wars, plus many little details from Star Wars 1313 have eventually made it to the small screen through The Mandalorian.



    With so many new Star Wars games in development right now, chances are we'll end up seeing (and playing) something close to 1313 sooner rather than later. Ubisoft Massive's open-world title is a good candidate, but we'll have to wait and see.

    Cool find but I don't want to see it because it would break my heart all over again

    That's really cool, and I really wasn't expecting the bar scene to look that good for a prototype. Now imagine what the final version would've looked like!

    It definitely seems like they were aiming for some Uncharted-like dynamic levels.
