An official trailer for the video game Star Wars Eclipse officially dropped, teasing the High Republic Era setting.
One of the many exciting new trailers to come from The Game Awards 2021 was for an upcoming video game from Quantic Dream and Lucasfilm Games. Star Wars Eclipse is officially in development from the two studios, and will explore a previously unseen era in the iconic franchise at least on the video game front: the High Republic era.
For the uninitiated, the High Republic era takes place roughly 200 years before the events of the Prequel Trilogy take place. A series of new books set during this time started to be published this year, exploring the height of the Galactic Republic. Star Wars Eclipse looks to showcase that era in perhaps the most visceral way thus far, teasing further expansions of the iconic franchise beyond the legacy of the Skywalkers.

Here is the synopsis for Star Wars Eclipse:
Set during the High Republic era, Star Wars Eclipse™ is an intricately branching action-adventure game that can be experienced in many ways, and puts the destinies of multiple playable characters in your hands, created in collaboration between Quantic Dream and Lucasfilm Games.
Meanwhile, fans eager to get their next fix on the galaxy far, far away are weeks away from the premiere of The Book of Boba Fett, which will arrive on December 29 on Disney Plus.
