A new game has appeared in a listing for Xbox Live Arcade title by the name of Star Wars: First Assault. This is a new LucasArts title that was first uncovered by Fusible earlier this year. Treasure seekers set out on the Xbox.com website and located the listing along with the game’s cover art.
From what I see on the cover art there appears to be a squad of Stormtroopers locked in a firefight with Rebel troops. That suggests to me that we’re looking at a game that takes place during the original trilogy, and it could be some sort of third-person shooter. That wouldn’t necessarily be bad as long as the game is somewhere in the vein of the Battlefront series.
LucasArts hasn’t officially announced anything yet, though IGN reached out and received a response from a representative that stated, “It’s an exciting time at our company right now, however we don’t have any announcements at this time.” We’ll be awaiting more details, but in the meantime we welcome all interpretations of the cover art.
