Star Wars: Eclipse Breaks the Mold: No Game Over Screen and a ‘Simmering’ Release Approach

Quantic Dream's Unique Style Continues with Star Wars: Eclipse

 

In terms of gameplay details, it was revealed that Star Wars: Eclipse will align with Quantic Dream’s established style, which has been prominent in titles like Detroit: Become Human and Beyond: Two Souls. Notably, the game will break from the tradition of featuring a game over screen following challenging decisions, a characteristic that fans have come to expect.

Lisa Pendse explained, “One of the big focuses we’ve had when we announced Star Wars Eclipse was to make sure it was clear that this is actually an action adventure game that has all of the elements that you would come to expect and want from a Quantic Dream title, which is intricately branching narratives, multiple playable characters.” She went on to clarify, “There’s no game over. Anyone can die, anything can happen, and the story sort of continues so that those signatures are still there. But what we’ve been doing is even more ramping up our expertise in the gameplay arena.”
