A Mandalorian video game set during the Imperial Era developed by Respawn Entertainment? This is definitely the way.

We've played many amazing Star Wars video games over the years. The latest of which is Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, a thrilling continuation to Cal Kestis' journey praised by critics and fans alike due to its smooth combat, big set pieces, and great level design.

This intergalactic adventure was developed by Respawn Entertainment, the masterminds behind Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and the Titanfall franchise. And now that it's been almost a year since the release of their biggest title to date, it's time to look at what adventures lie ahead for the American video game studio.

Ever since the Mandalorian series premiered on Disney+, players have claimed that if a video game were to put you in the shoes (or boots) of a bounty hunter living in the Star Wars universe, it would make for a memorable experience. Well, it appears it's just a matter of time before we finally get to live out that dream.

As reported by Insider Gaming, a first-person Mandalorian game is now in the works by Respawn Entertainment, and it's set to take place during the Imperial Era. It's worth noting that we don't yet know who's set to be the main character. It could be someone who fans have never seen before, but due to Din Djarin's popularity (which even secured him a live-action film), it wouldn't surprise us if he was the game's protagonist. After all, he could be aided by Grogu's Jedi powers to allow for some great gameplay mechanics.

When players speculated as to how a Mandalorian game could play out, many hoped it would feature an open world that would let you travel anywhere while taking on multiple contracts along the way. Unfortunately, it appears that won't be the case as the game reportedly takes place on linear levels across different planets in the Galaxy. Besides, it will have a heavy focus on mobility thanks to the Mandalorian's jetpack and abilities. Players will get to perform ground slides, horizontal dashes, and big vertical jumps at fast paces. It sounds like the game could control a little bit like the Ghostrunner franchise.

It might be a let-down to know a Mandalorian game would not be open-world. However, Star Wars: Jedi Survivor is a fantastical game and yet, it is set in a semi-open world that does not allow free intergalactic exploration. Besides, Star Wars: Outlaws, a Ubisoft-developed title set to release this year, will reportedly include this highly-awaited feature. Having two Star Wars games with the same exploration mechanics could feel a little repetitive, so if the Mandalorian game stays away from doing what's already been done and instead focuses on mobility, it could very well pay off.

There's not a release date in sight yet for the Mandalorian game, but it's reported we're still one or two years away from finally getting our hands on it. However, when Respawn reveals more information about this highly anticipated title, we'll break them down here in Bam! Smack! Pow!
