Star Wars Battlefront 3 Summary
It wasn't quite the barn-storming Star Wars: Battlefront reveal we were hoping for, but a developer video released during EA's E3 2014 press conference shows that DICE are hard at work on creating those classic Star Wars battlegrounds.
There was even some very early in-engine footage, featuring two iconic vehicles and locations; the snow-speeders on icy Hoth and speeder-bikes zooming through the forests of Endor. Not an ewok in sight thus far, though.
In case you were unaware, Lucasfilm has 'freed themselves' of the Star Wars Expanded Universe by declaring it not official canon to Star Wars. That's so they're free to explore the new trilogy in the works.
However it also means that every game up until this point is also outside the canon, but Lucasfilm have said every new title from this moment on will be considered official.
A YouTube user going by the name of Borman18 has leaked a pre-alpha gameplay video for Star Wars Battlefront III, which was cancelled causing the closure of its developers Free Radical.
A new rumor has sprung up on Twitter that developer Spark Unlimited, best known for Turning Point: Fall of Liberty and Legendary, is working on the long-awaited sequel Star Wars Battlefront 3, the Star Wars-licensed variation of Battlefield.
One of the most desired game on many first person shooter fans lists may be Timesplitters 4, but according to the series developers, the game still didn't sell as well as hoped, which is why they never bothered working on a new game.
