Respawn Entertainment has revealed their first-person shooter Star Wars game will be a story-driven single-player title. The developer currently has two Star Wars games in progress, but while plenty is known about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, it’s taken a series of job listings to provide details of the other.
Star Wars single player FPS is inspired by classic titles
The new AAA Star Wars FPS will be a single player game inspired by “classic titles like Dark Forces and Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2” according to a job listing for a Rendering Engineer at Respawn (thanks exputer). These games from the late 90s both had gameplay akin to classic DOOM. The FPS will be built on Unreal Engine 5 and Respawn says that this inspiration together with the new technology will create “a brand new experience our players will love”.
While the game will primarily be a story-driven single-player game, previous job listings have suggested it could also have multiplayer features. Regardless, very little has been officially announced about the game bar that development had only just begun back in January 2022. Respawn also has Star Wars Jedi: Survivor due for release at the end of next month, while a strategy game is also in progress at Bit Reactor.
