Naughty Dog’s critically acclaimed The Last of Us titles are known for their engaging mix of cinematic sequences and gameplay, and that’s a formula that Quantic Dream will be leveraging for its upcoming Star Wars title, Star Wars: Eclipse.
This is according to Twitter user and insider AccountNGT, who is notable for having tweeted a screenshot of the teaser trailer for Star Wars: Eclipse one week before its official premiere at The Game Awards. AccountNGT shared a series of bullet points over the weekend regarding Quantic Dream’s new title, which includes the claim that Star Wars: Eclipse will offer a “mix of story and gameplay,” having been inspired by The Last of Us.
Star Wars: Eclipse is also said to offer more playable characters than any of Quantic Dream’s other games, as well as gameplay that’s comparable to the type seen in Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
