Amy Hennig gives a few new details on Visceral's upcoming Star Wars game

The weekend just gone was Star Wars Celebration Weekend and therefore some interesting information came out of it in relation to the game based on the franchise.

We've already told you about the new Star Wars: Battlefront expansion, but we also got some new details on Viceral's Star War's game, courtesy of Amy Hennig, who gave a few ideas of what to expect.

“The process that I’ve been using is really similar to what I did with Uncharted, to be honest,” she told Gamespot. “If you’re trying to re-create that classic–in [Uncharted’s] case–pulp action adventure experience, you need to deconstruct the films so you know how to reconstruct them in an interactive context as gameplay.

“The end goal is by the time the player has finished playing they feel like they really did play a Star Wars film. So I’ve done the same thing for Star Wars. What does that mean? It’s getting the structure right. It means you have to understand where the act breaks fall, where all the obstacles and reversals fall, and the set-pieces. [You need to know] what are all the component parts that make up a Star Wars story.”

Indeed it sounds like the style of the game may very well appeal to fans of Uncharted, a series which Henning herself played a large part in.

“It’s what my writing partner Todd calls ‘breezy urgency’, the idea that there’s a sort of swashbuckling charm to the thing, there’s humour and buoyancy. At the same time there’s stakes and jeopardy.”

So who is excited for this one then?
