Ubisoft Making Open World Star Wars Game

Ubisoft and Lucasfilm Games Announce plans for a new story-driven, open-world Star Wars game. This is in the works at Massive Entertainment, and the announcement includes interviews with a couple of the developers. On Monday it was announced that the Lucasfilm Games brand was being revived, leading to speculation that EA would no longer be the exclusive creator of Star Wars games, which is now clearly the case. A Lucasfilm Games interview on StarWars.com indicates that their relationship with EA will continue: "We’re really proud of the games we have created with EA," says Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly. "We will continue working with them and our relationship has never been stronger. While we may not have a lot of details to share at the moment, we’ve got a number of projects underway with the talented teams at EA." Here's vague word on the new game:
Ubisoft and Lucasfilm Games have announced a collaboration on a new Star Wars game. Development on the project will be led by Massive Entertainment whose expertise and talent will be used to create a story-driven, open-world experience within the Star Wars galaxy that will also utilize the studio’s cutting-edge technology and advancements, including the Snowdrop engine.

“The vast Star Wars lore is an incredible source of inspiration for our teams,” said Yves Guillemot, co-founder and CEO of Ubisoft. “This is the beginning of a long-term collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm Games, and we are pleased to be working hand-in-hand to build upon the incredible legacy of Lucasfilm to create a game that we know Star Wars fans will love.”

WAIT WAIT WAIT... that means EA lost the exclusive license deal?!? *YAY!*

So the question becomes... Open world game... so no starships, and on 1 planet...... Only 1 planet I can think of to really support that (Corcucant and I can't spell for crap today).

I've been playing through Immortal Fenyx Rising lately and have really enjoyed it; more than I thought I would as I tend to lose interest when an open world is too vast weakening the storyline. And the added bonus of removing the exclusivity with a single developer can only mean more ideas and creativity. As long as the quality standard stays high.

Are YOU ready to use The Force™ from the top of the spires of Coruscant to search for the enemies of The Rebellion™!

Only Ubitsoft can provide you with the innovative and revolutionary gameplay of Star Wars: Creed of the Cry Watch.

Haha! I was too late to make this exact comment.

That said, I've gotten a lot of hours out of the Ubisoft formula games, so I'm cautiously interested.

Better have at least 2 players Coop, or it will be just another boring slugfest open world game.

No towers in Division 1 and 2, yes, but plenty of busy work. Enjoyable busy work, I loved Division 2 especially to log about 800 hours, of very repetitive but enjoyable grind.

And they even added a climbing tower joke in Far Cry 5

Dude, far Cry 3 and AC: Revelations. Massive has so done towers.

These guys are now working on an Avatar (The blue aliens, not the air benders) game and a Star Wars game. Hopefully they won't muck it up.

"Member seeing Star Wars in the theaters, you 50+ somethings? Yeah, here comes a game!"

Which is cool actually, but details beyond buzzwords are scarce. Open, immersive? Oooooo kay Is it one world or many?

They mention snowflake engine. Is this a descendant of the one with destructible environment, or a real AI for NPCs, where they attempt to avoid things or grab something if they start to fall?

It's Star Wars. Jedi force jump to the top of towers, and non-Jedi use motorized grappling hooks to scale towers.
