Nolan North: Amy Hennig/Visceral's Star Wars game is "in the style of Uncharted"

So I thought this deserved its own thread rather than being interleaved with Uncharted 4 discussion.

This probably isn't very shocking given the Creative Director and how Dead Space 2 and 3 played.

If you're a big fan of Amy Hennig with her styles of stories, the big thing bout her is that she's gone to EA and is going to reboot a brand new Star Wars franchise in the style of Uncharted and I happen to know a lot about it and it's gonna be awesome

Rumors are this is a Han Solo origin story game right?

Either way I'm pretty excited. Also supposed to be open world I think?

It'll certainly be interesting to see if she can still pull it off without the rest of ND. She's got the chops, obviously, but, more than one person made Uncharted.

Good for people who still haven't had enough of this over-exhausted genre in AAA games. But I could see how it would work with the Star Wars IP.

I just hope they at least innovate and do some fresh new things instead of the same scripted nonsense with big explosions, one-dimensional setpieces, and eye-rolling narrative.

It's funny how the whole Uncharted in Space meme surrounding Dead Space 2 and 3 is coming true. Especially after it was admitted DS2 was inspired by Uncharted 2.

Yeah, it'll be Han Solo doing Drake things.

Not surprising at all, even just from looking at the kind of games Visceral have made. Them doing a Fauxncharted with Star Wars makes a lot of sense and that's before they brought Amy Hennig on board.

Hope it's it's "own thing", mind - I'm really not interested in playing as Han Solo.

Man, I just had this amazing dream of Henning working on the next Dead Space game. Would be glorious.
