LucasArts have unveiled yet another Star Wars game, this time an action title from the makers of Battlezone. Developed by Pandemic, The Clone Wars will feature a mixture of ground and air based combat as you lead a clone army against the evil Count Dooku and his battle droids, taking on the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker or Mace Windu in the process. The single player campaign will be spread across six planets, including the unpronouncable Wookie home planet Kashyyyk, and upwards of thirty vehicles will be available to control, varying from speed bikes and gunships to fighter tanks and AT-SX walkers. "The Clone War was first mentioned in the film Star Wars : A New Hope, and though few details were revealed the conflict has continued to intrigue fans over the years", Pandemic president Josh Resnick pontificated. "We now know that the Clone War was one of the largest and most pivotal events in the history of Star Wars. Pandemic's vast experience in developing large-scale military combat action games is ideally suited to recreating that legendary war for an interactive medium, and will enable players to experience all its intensity first-hand." Expect to see the Clone Wars breaking out on the PlayStation 2 and GameCube this autumn. Related Feature - Clone Wars screenshots
