Video game headset maker Turtle Beach announced today that it is working with Lucasfilm for an upcoming line of Star Wars-themed headsets.

Turtle Beach's Star Wars headset line will feature characters and artwork from the Star Wars franchise, including the TV show Star Wars Rebels. They will include swappable speaker plates, which will be sold as accessories, allowing you to create a unique headset.

These headsets will launch in 2014, but there's no word yet on pricing. The first headset and speaker plate designs will be announced at E3 next month.

"As a company in the gaming and entertainment space, we can't help but be excited by the prospect of working on Star Wars headset designs in collaboration with Lucasfilm,” Turtle Beach chief marketing officer Bob Picunko said in a statement. "We are looking forward to introducing state-of-the-art headsets that appeal to both casual and elite players who are fans of Star Wars."

Star Wars is not the first major entertainment franchise Turtle Beach has teamed up with, but it may be the most prominent. Turtle Beach also makes special Call of Duty: Ghosts and Marvel headsets.

Last week, director J.J. Abrams announced the cast for upcoming movie Star Wars: Episode VII. Electronic Arts is currently working on multiple Star Wars games, including a new Star Wars: Battlefront from Battlefield developer DICE.
