Quantic Dream‘s Star Wars Eclipse is reportedly inspired by The Last of Us, with a mix of story and gameplay.
That’s according to a Twitter user who tweeted a screenshot of the reveal trailer for Star Wars Eclipse one week before it was publicly shown.
Twitter user @accngt claimed this weekend that the Star Wars game will be an open-world adventure that also features multiplayer, which is being worked on seperately by Quantic Dream’s Montreal team.
The Quantic Dream Paris team is said to be working on “cinematics, story, level art” and the game’s engine.

The user also claimed that development on the project started in early 2021 and that not all of Quantic Dream’s Paris development team is working on it.
Eclipse appears to still be extremely early, as it is claimed that “the story is still being written” and that the Montreal team is still working on gameplay prototypes, drawing inspiration from Naughty Dog‘s The Last Of Us.
In December, it was confirmed that Eclipse is set in the High Republic era. The game was announced during The Game Awards.
“Star Wars Eclipse is the first video game to be set in an uncharted region of the Outer Rim during The High Republic era, known as the golden age of the Jedi,” Quantic Dream said.
“The game will build upon Quantic Dream’s expertise in delivering deeply branching narratives and will go beyond their already established acclaim. Player’s choices will be at the heart of the experience, as every decision can have a dramatic impact on the course of the story.”
The first trailer shows off impressive visuals including footage of Yoda and the planet of Naboo.
Earlier this year Lucasfilm signalled that its Star Wars exclusivity deal with EA was over—or at least coming to an end—by partnering with Ubisoft on a new open-world game.
