Nearly 30 minutes of pre-alpha footage has been revealed of the cancelled ‘Star Wars: Battlefront III,’ a game that was originally being developed by ‘Time Splitters’ developer Free Radical.
Appearing on Eurogamer, the pair of 15-minute videos showcase a little bit of how ‘Star Wars: Battlefront III’ was going to play and a little bit of how it was going to look. Though keep in mind, a lot of the footage reflects a product super early in its development so a lot of the sounds and assets are off in terms of quality.
In both videos, you can catch gameplay and slight glimpses of famous ‘Star Wars’ characters like Darth Vader, Han Solo, Padme, Princess Leia, Mace Windu, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Lando Calrissian, Anakin Skywalker, Mace Windu, General Grievous, Chewbacca, Yoda and various others.
For a while, there was much speculation and attestments regarding the development of Star War: Battlefront III.’ However, former publisher LucasArts never confirmed that the game was truly in production.
The ‘Star Wars: Battlefront’ games are a series of first-person/third-person shooters developed by Pandemic Studios that put players right into the major battles of the ‘Star Wars’ universe. The games were notable for their large-scale battles and how they gave players the ability to play as Storm/Clone troopers on the front lines and even famous notable characters from the series. There are total of two main entries in the series. Both appeared on PC and older generation consoles PS2 and Xbox. A few extra also appeared on portable and mobile devices.
A new entry to the series simply called ‘Star Wars: Battlefront’ is currently being developed by Swedish developer DICE, best known for their work on the ‘Battlefield’ series. The title is being published by EA Games, current owners of the ‘Star Wars’ game license, and is set to release on a still yet to be announced release date for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
