Star Wars: Battlefront

Battlefront 3 Footage Available?

  Well…yes and no…you see, apparently, well before DICE got the fate of one of the world’s most anticipated titles in gaming to fall into their laps, another crew had a run at Battlefront, and they actually put together a nearly-finished product, which – due to a set of unfortunate circumstances – never really got the see the light of day, or rather that of the screens of computer/console users world-wide. The company behind the effort was Free Radical, and according to some, they were about 99% finished with the project when they were forced into administration and when they finally closed for good in December 2008. Later, Crytek picked up the enterprise and transferred the team to various other projects, as Battlefront was cancelled, up until DICE came into the picture earlier this year to step up to the plate. Now then, why exactly is this bit of the…

Star Wars Battlefront Progress Report

After all the hype DICE’s upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront generated with its brief but spectacular E3 trailer, the noise around the game has died off, especially after it became clear that its release would not happen this year. Still, those who keep an eye on the news regarding the title, will pick up bits and pieces of information dropped by the parties involved in the making of the game one way or another. Representatives of one website apparently got to take a look at an early version of the game, and they were quick to let the hungry community have a couple of crumbs of much-needed information. Apparently, the new Battlefront will have a higher number of high-definition weapons than its predecessors, and there will be a definite strategy involved in wielding and using these weapons. The weapons will apparently dictate the fighting style on the part of the player,…

Cancelled Star Wars Battlefront III Models

  We’re excited about the upcomming Star Wars: Battlefront  (at least I know I am) and this is why I love bringing you updates, news, rumors and pretty much anything else related to help pass the time until we actually get to report on the game itself. As you know, there were plans for the game that are now cancelled as DICE takes over production. I feel confident in DICE’s ability to bring us a fantastic game and I don’t think they are rushing the title or going for a money grab (easy to do, knowing how badly we all want it). But if you’re curious, you can take a look at the cancelled models that showcase what it would have looked like. Check out the gallery for yourself:

Will Star Wars: Battlefront Release Line up with Star Wars: Episode VII Release?

Fans are talking about the release of Star Wars: Battlefront. That’s nothing new. We’re all excited about the game and anxious for updates about when we’ll get to check it out for ourselves (finally). Reports say that development may be delayed on this game as DICE has stopped working on upcoming releases. We don’t mind waiting for it, honestly, as long as we get the game and not another disappointment or cancelled title. The internet was abuzz today with rumors about the release and the possibility that it will line up with the release of Star Wars: Episode VII. Will it be awhile before we get the chance to play this highly anticipated game? Most signs point to yes. However,  Viktor Lundberg (Developer and soundtrack musician) recently posted a Twitter message mentioning that he was looking forward to “playtesting” the game-playable alpha and beta versions of the game are available internally,…

No Clone Wars in Star Wars: Battlefront (for Now)

We’ve been keeping an eye on the development of DICE’s much-hyped Star Wars: Battlefront ever since the first few crumbs of information surfaced in this respect and it has been becoming increasingly clear that the game – which is indeed shaping up as a truly monumental and epic effort – will only cover a small part of the Star Wars universe, namely the original trilogy and its locations. While this is by no means bad news, it does mean that there will probably be no Clone Wars lore elements in the game. The Clone Wars era earned no mentioning in the impressive E3 trailer presented by the developer, the locations the team has scouted and the LucasFilm museum that the visited this summer are also indicative of an original trilogy-only focus. If anything, for the fans of the series, those awaiting the release of the title with bated breath, this…

Will Star Wars: Battlefront Be the Best Star Wars Game Ever?

There’s a lot of talk about Star Wars: Battlefront as the game gets closer to completion. Fans are anxious for another Star Wars game and at this point, just publishing and shipping a game with a Star Wars theme would be better than how other expected Star Wars titles have worked out recently. DICE wants to do more than just make a game, however. They want to create the “best Star Wars game ever”. That’s a big undertaking, depending on who you ask. However, developer DICE has a strong vision for Battlefront and they spoke with MCV about what they wanted to do with the game. “Historically DICE hasn’t worked on licenses that are not our own,” according to Battlefield studio’s general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson. “So this is different for us. If someone came to us with another licence then we’d probably say no, but, in this case, Star Wars has a…
