Star Wars 1313, LucasArts’ gritty new Star Wars game, has been turning heads at E3 all this week. With platforms unannounced and the visuals of a next-gen release, many industry journalists suspected the game to run on Unreal Engine 4. However, that’s not the case.
Epic Games confirmed to CVG that the game is running on Unreal Engine 3.
This shouldn’t come off as too much of a surprise. Early next-gen titles will most likely run on Unreal Engine 3 over 4, according to Epic VP Mark Rein. Unreal Engine 3 is capable of powering visuals such as those seen in the infamous Samaritan demo, he said.
