Lucasfilm and Electronic Arts may have successfully blocked the release of the fan-made Star Wars: Battlefront III, but thanks to a YouTube upload, we now can see the potential that game held for fans of the franchise…
YouTuber FuZaH has just uploaded a 7 minute and 30 second video of gameplay footage from the now cancelled Star Wars: Battlefront III game that was being developed by Frontwire Studios. This week we’ve reported that EA and Lucasfilm was able to block Frontwire from releasing the game on Steam, which has sent most Star Wars gaming fans into a rage, and now this footage has appeared. Check it out:
As you can see from the footage, Star Wars Battlefront III would have stayed with a single player campaign, and it would have focused on the Prequel Trilogy era — something the new Battlefront games have strayed from by going with the Sequel Trilogy era.
The real question remains: Do Star Wars fans prefer this type of game to the one that EA is releasing currently? According to a piece by Eurogamer.net, EA claims that millions are still playing Star Wars: Battlefront…so why fix what ain’t broke?
I have to say personally, I would have loved to have been able to play this version of Star Wars: Battlefront III. Even though I’m big on player vs player, seeing a single player mode that focuses on a clone trooper going through the Prequel Trilogy — from defending the Jedi to killing them with Order 66 — would have made me a believer in the single player aspect of this game.
It’s a darn shame this game will never see the light of day. We do want to hear from you, though. What do you think of this gameplay footage from Star Wars: Battlefront III? Would you have loved to play through a single player mode, through the Prequel Trilogy? Let us know in the comment section below, and on social media.
