Star Wars Battlefront 3 is one of the most requested Star Wars video game titles and soon, players will be able to rejoice in a new iteration of Battlefront that is currently being made by DICE. For those interested in what the game looked like in 2012, some Youtube users have gotten their hands on the pre-alpha build of the game.
Youtube user ‘BananaSwag’ has uploaded two videos of pre-alpha gameplay of the much anticipated title. This is not the version that DICE is currently developing, it is the version that was being worked on at Free Radical before the company was defunct and the game was cancelled by Lucasarts. The footage shows a lot of frame-rate drops and as the user mentions, it’s due to the fact it is a pre-alpha version.
Here’s part of the user's video description:
Some footage of the build of Star Wars Battlefront 3 that got canceled. This build is from 2012 and was ported over from the PC. This content is not mine, it is the property of Disney. No copyright intended, this is purely for review of the build. The game looked very fun to play and runs pretty well other then the obvious frame rate drops.
The first part appears to be a ‘team deathmatch’ type of game where the player controlled Padme Amidala would search out members of the Fett family and Darth Vader. The second part showed a player controlled Leia taking out Siths and various dark side entourage with a blaster.
If this game were to be released tomorrow, I would definitely buy. This just makes me even more excited to see what DICE has in store for us.
