Star Wars Eclipse is a new game being developed by Quantic Dream

A new Star Wars game was just announced at the Game Awards. The game is titled Star Wars Eclipse and it seems to be set in the High Republic Era of the series, which is dubbed a golden age of Jedi.

Star Wars Eclipse – Official Cinematic Reveal Trailer

Star Wars Eclipse is an all-new video game IP for the series, not connected to any past series titles. It’s likely that this entry will be an interactive cinematic experience similar to past games from its developer, Quantic Dream, which has delivered games like Detroit: Become HumanHeavy Rain, and Beyond Two Souls.

The official trailer for the game describes it as “an intricately branching action-adventure game that can be experienced in many ways, and puts the destinies of multiple playable characters in your hands.” This makes it even more likely that it will fall more in line with past Quantic titles, possibly with a more action-focused twist.

The game will feature never-before-seen species and planets of the Star Wars universe, taking place in the Outer Rim. Like many pieces of Star Wars media, Star Wars Eclipse will have a focus on the political side of the world from long ago in a galaxy far, far away.

While we got a good cinematic look at Eclipse, there are no details on its release date or what consoles it will be released on just yet. However, you can keep up to date with the game and any subsequent news on it on its official website, where you can sign up for updates.

July’s Xbox Game Pass lineup is the best the service has offered in months
Key art for Neon White

Microsoft unveiled the batch of eight games that will come to the Xbox Game Pass subscription service over the course of the first half of July. It's a solid lineup featuring quite a few amazing indie games. In particular, Neon White is a standout because it's one of my favorite indie games of the 2020s, and it's finally coming to Xbox while launching straight into Microsoft's subscription service.

Neon White initially launched on other platforms in 2022 and was developed by Angel Matrix, a studio founded by Donut County's Ben Esposito. It's a first-person shooter but doesn't play like Doom or Call of Duty. Instead, players must play cards in order to use their weapons, which double as both attacks and platforming assists. That means Neon White ends up being more like a speedrunning-focused puzzle platformer rather than a traditional first-person shooter.

If you love Animal Crossing, try this great new PC game next
The player rides their bike through some townies in Go-Go Town.

Like millions of other people, I was briefly addicted to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in early 2020. Needing to play it for work and having little else to do, I dumped a lot of time into that Nintendo Switch game over the course of a couple of months in spring 2020. After losing a lot of bells in the game's stalk market and getting frustrated by the slow cadence of updates, I bounced off the game hard and have had trouble returning to my island ever since. Thankfully, there are plenty of games aiming to take a shot at Animal Crossing: New Horizons' cutesy town-building, life simulation crown. While some people prefer games like Hello Kitty: Island Adventure, I've recently been hooked on Go-Go Town.

Released into Steam early access by Prideful Sloth and Cult Games on June 18, Go-Go Town is a charmingly approachable game about building a run-down city back up as its mayor. Although it's not the most innovative game in the genre, Go-Go Town's appealing presentation, intuitive gameplay systems, and already-present gameplay loops made it the first game in a while to remind me of why I loved Animal Crossing: New Horizons so much in 2020. With Prideful Sloth already being very transparent about its early access plans, Go-Go Town is shaping up to be something really special.
