LucasArts og Pandemic Studios nærmer seg slutten på utviklingen av Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Denne gangen dreier det seg om både bakke- og luftkamper, med kjente karakterer og kjøretøy fra Episode II.
Spillet skal være ute til både PlayStation 2 og GameCube i løpet av høsten 2002. Skla man dra noen som helst konklusjon ut fra disse screenshotta, så må det være at enda en potensiell hit er på vei. Her følger 11 lekre screenies, etterfulgt av et utdrag fra pressemeldingen:
Star Wars: The Clone Wars immerses players into the role of Jedi hero to lead a clone army from the Republic against the menacing offensive threat of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Under the leadership of the insidious Count Dooku, countless armies of Confederacy droids have swarmed every star system, sowing chaos and destruction across Republic worlds. To combat this threat the Republic has deployed a massive army of clones, led by one of three player-controlled Jedi: Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi or Mace Windu. Their goal is to thwart the Confederacy from reassembling an ancient Sith weapon of mass destruction. That mandate places the fate of the Republic in the hands of players, who must command their forces through 16 dramatic campaigns spanning six immense Star Wars worlds, from the desolate, ice-covered ruins of Rhen Var and war-torn plains of Geonosis, to the towering treetop cities of the Wookiee home planet of Kashyyyk.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars features innovative and well-detailed single and multiplayer campaigns coupled with a unique blend of non-stop action. The game will incorporate popular characters and various familiar vehicles and settings from Star Wars: Episode II. While the game's primary focus is on high-intensity engagement, defined combat roles for each vehicle will add a distinctive dimension. Upon meeting certain objectives, players can change vehicles during battle and pilot an array of units from the arsenal of the Republic, including a speeder bike, AT-SX assault walker, fighter tank, and Republic gunship. In all, players engage more than 30 unique combat units.
