Star Wars: Battlefront 3 LucasArts footage emerges

Thursday, 11th April 2013 08:26 GMT By Dave Cook

Star Wars: Battlefront 3 was said to be coming next from LucasArts after digital shooter Star War: First Assault tested the waters. Both games have now been canned, but gameplay footage of the new Battlefront 3 has emerged in the wild.

Kotaku has the clip watermarked here so I won’t embed it, but go check it out. It’s interesting.

Star Wars: First Assault was rumoured to have been something of a focus test for Battlefront 3-proper. The first-person shooter was in the works for digital formats and – based on the reaction from fans – a second version would have been released with vehicles. This version would eventually become Battlefront 3.

The footage of version two shows players fighting over Tatooine in tanks, on foot and you know what? It actually looks good. Could this be a mistake on Disney’s part?

Watch the video and discuss with us below.

Thanks again Kotaku.

    So the source that said Battlefront 3 wasn’t 99% done and that it was bullshit. Was clearly bullshiting themselves because that looks like a nearly finished game to me. Sure a bit of polish is needed I suppose, but damn that’s close to finishing. Just proves how much of a dick LucasArts were when they cancelled it after all that effort.

    I assume you’re not from a development background?

    For all intents and purposes that could be a vertical slice. You can’t tell from a short demo how complete the whole game is.

    Look at Halo 2′s first E3 showing. Damn near complete-looking game, but it was a rushed level that was entirely scrapped after the event (as it couldn’t run off of debug xbox’s) and they started the game from scratch.

    Looks can be deceiving.
