Gameplay video from the cancelled Star Wars Battlefront 3

Here is a pretty nifty look at the cancelled Battlefront 3’s first campaign mission. The video was uploaded by Youtube User FuZaH who has the following to say about it: Yup, I had some more tucked away. (I seriously apologise for the earrape level of the audio. The footage must’ve been captured like that. I’ve ran it through Premiere to limit the peaks but its still pretty bad. RIP headphone users.) Also; this is alpha footage from early November. I’d assume a few of the bugs in this were worked out in their last build. If any ex-Free Radical/LucasArts developers see this video, and have a build, I would be very appreciative if you contacted me. I’d like to discuss a few things with you. Also, EA, to make up for the disappointment that is “EAFront”, could you just finish this game and release it as Battlefront: Legacy? If you don’t want…

Star Wars: Battlefront Getting a Change in Leadership

According to a Tweet from Battlefront’s lead designer, Dennis Brannvall, there could be a change in leadership happening. He announced he has worked his last day on Battlefront and it’s time to pass the reigns. He’s taking paternity leave to help out with his boys, one a recently announced new addition to the family. So today I worked my last day on Battlefront. I’ll be on paternity leave, taking care of my two boys. See you next year! — Dennis Brännvall (@DICE_FireWall) November 7, 2016 Many from the US will agree that we need better maternity/paternity leave programs here as dads nearly never secure time off and the mothers get only a short time, or are sometimes forced to quit or have their positions replaced while they are away on maternity leave. Lucky for Brannvall, he lives in a country that respects the value of family and he should be back…

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Coming in Fall 2017

News released about Star Wars Battlefront 2 and not surprisingly, it will be releasing in Fall of 2017, just in time for Star Wars 8. While this is certainly not a surprise to anyone, it’s still good to get a confirmation. We still don’t have a lot of information yet and we don’t even know for sure what the title is going to be. The first Star Wars Battlefront (technically the third main Battlefront game, and the second to have that exact title) came out in 2015 and tied in with the release of The Force Awakens. “We’re working very hard on making sure that it’s an extremely deep and engaging offering,” EA chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen confirmed in a conference call with financial analysts. He said the game will release in “a year from now” and just in time for the holidays. While it’s not a firm release date…

In another case of the Little Game That Never Would Be, Battlefront 3 is one that fans were excited about but that was cancelled back in 2008.

However, there has been some leaked footage that makes its way out over the years and we see some of that cropping up now and again. It gives you a glimpse into what the game might have been. There were a lot of fans who were disappointed that this game was cancelled. If you’ve never seen this footage before, you should check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.

Star Wars: Battlefront’s Death Star DLC Nails it!

Star Wars: Battlefront’s latest DLC, called Death Star, was preceded by an insane amount of buzz, but when it landed, it actually fulfilled all expectations and more. In fact, its only shortcoming is that it’s way too short and that it brings less content than one would like. That is not to say there isn’t enough new content in the DLC. It’s all just so seamless and well-integrated into the movie-universe, that while playing, one actually feels like he/she is taking an active part in Star Wars canon. It makes people hungry for more, while indeed promising them a lot more in – as yet hypothetical – future expansions. There are so many great ideas, so many opportunities and potential offered by the Star Wars universe, it’s almost impossible for the devs to get things wrong from here on out. While everything is superbly rendered in the game, there are…
