The High Republic is finally coming to the world of video games with Star Wars Eclipse. Here at 3Bit, we cannot be more excited, especially since myself and fellow founder Kyle have been reading and listening to all the recent High Republic content! This new Star Wars adventure will take us to the galaxy far, far away, hundreds of years before the much-beloved Skywalker Saga. This experience of the High Republic will be brought to us by Quantic Dreams. Who, let's be honest, are the Jedi masters of storytelling, especially when that story spans across multiple characters, which is precisely what Eclipse will be doing!

Not much has been given away through the story yet, and we aren't sure where this stunning looking game will be based in the High Republic timeline. Still, we do have a hand full of theories and breakdowns from the trailer that may or may not come to light as we slowly learn more about what can only be described as the most stunning Star Wars game to date, don't believe us check out the trailer above before checking out our theories and Breakdowns below.

Now without going into too much detail as I do not want to spoil the stories of the High Republic for those just getting into it, but it looks like we will be interacting with many characters from the book series (Light of the Jedi, Rising Storm etc.). One such theory discussed between myself and Kyle was that it will serve as an origin story for 3 of the High Republic's Jedi Masters, Avar Kriss (who we see in the trailer and pictured below), Elzar Mann and Stellan Gios. These 3 masters reference their time as padawans often across all the High Republic books they feature in. To see that history come to life as they explore the outer rim would be one hell of a fantastic storyline that we hope will happen. It would also make sense as this will be a story that anybody can pick up on, meaning it is unlikely to be a direct continuation of the books (Another option we were both hoping for but seems unlikely).

What really sparked our interest, though, was some of the cameos and hidden details throughout the trailer, such as the heavy use of the Trade Federation and the Nemoidians (pictured below), who were brought to infamy in the Star Wars Universe in the Phantom Menace, could this story be the start of their tyranny in the galaxy, or are they helping against a threat we haven't yet witnessed, such as the mass army that gathers within the trailer? We are unsure yet as to whether that is republic or enemy!

The final thing we noticed but hasn't concluded in a theory yet is some of the ships within the trailer, with one shot featuring a crashed N1 Naboo Starfighter and another resembling the Ebon Hawk from Knights of The Old Republic. Also featured within this trailer are several trade union ships, some unknown frigates and various starfighters, some of which appeared to be Sky Wings, whilst others looked similar to the sith fighters from Knights of the Old Republic. All we can say is we are super stoked to get more information from Quantic Dreams for Star Wars Eclipse. However, until then, this Jedi will need to learn some patience as the game is, infact, still in the early stages of development! Do you agree with our theories or have some of your own you'd like to share? Let us know in this articles comments section on Facebook and Twitter!
