Leaked Footage Of Star Wars’ Newest Take On Battlefield And Call of Duty

Over the past few days, I've been talking to multiple sources about Star Wars: First Assault, the troubled multiplayer shooter that could be LucasArts's downloadable take on Battlefield and Call of Duty. (Dev, LucasArts, Tech)

Disney please DO NOT ruin this game!!!

Given Lucas Arts track record (over the past decade) I actually have more faith in Disney which I'm shocked to say.

Disney ruins everything
Disney clearly has the money to invest in this game and the industry has been waiting for a successor to Battlefront 3. This looks like it switches from 1st to 3rd through melee attacks(ala Halo) and with some polish be a solid game. Include vehicles and we can have a winner. I am sure Disney will f-ck this up like they do many other things.

prince of Persia
pirates of the Caribbean

Yes, because Pixar shot straight down the tube when they were bought out and The Avengers was horrible! [/sarcasm]
Zhipp  +   899d ago
Wasn't POTC always Disney?
jakmckratos  +   899d ago
Shut up Meg. Prince of Persia was fine and even the last Pirates grossed $1 billion and was a decent movie. Did they screw up Avengers? Shut your hole.I forgot how bad Oz, Tron, Wreck it Ralph and Pixar are..oh wait they're not. Chances are this game was in development way before Disney bought SW and simple little idiots don't realize how much creative control Lucas films will still have over the creation of the movies...disney will just attract bigger talent and wants the $$$$
ALLWRONG  +   899d ago
For the most part Disney does a pretty good job keeping Disney out of the art.
ShabbaRanks  +   898d ago
@ThatArtGuy LOL the Avengers was horrible

*on topic* I hope this games is the successor to Battlefront 3 that we were waiting for... but why did they add PERKS DAMMM YOU PERKSSSS !!!

Well, Pixar did shoot straight down the tube as soon as they were acquired. Their last good movies were already in development prior to that.

I love you just for this Family Guy reference.

Wait, I thought Disney only bought LucasFilms. So LuscasArts shouldn't be affected, right? I may be wrong. Someone please correct me if that's the case.

No, they bought all rights to Star Wars, including LucasArts. I think this is a step in the right direction.
TAURUS-555  +   898d ago
this is a must-buy for me.

hopefully we will see some jedis in this shooter too.

Loir: you sound like a troll from EA. Are you a EA employee trolling websites and making reference to everything EA is doing to kill the buzz of others joy?

Day 1 buy for me if it comes out

I have to say that this reminds me more of Team fortress 2 but set in the star wars universe rather than call of duty/battlefield.
Newmanator  +   899d ago
So long as there is no Quick-Scoping with a Laser Sniper I'm all in.
aiBreeze  +   899d ago
It's about time they start to look at making another Star Wars FPS. Since battlefront 2, the genre has gone from strength to strength in popularity. Providing they make it a "Star Wars" game and not call of start wars, it should be freaking awesome.
MysticStrummer  +   898d ago
Sad to say, but most FPSs will be influenced by Call of Duty to one degree or another until CoD finally goes away. Even BF was changed by the CoD machine. I'd say there is a 99% chance that this game will be mindless like CoD.

If you cancel this Disney I swear I'll tear Mickey Mouse a new one!

I always wanted a spiritual sequel to Republic Commando.

I always wondered why Mickey talked in that squeaky voice.
tigertron  +   899d ago
It'll be even higher if Disney cancel it.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   899d ago
If it isn't Battlefront 3 I don't care.
PygmelionHunter  +   898d ago
A new Rogue Squadron or even a new Republic Commando would do it for me, but Battlefront 3 would make me s*** myself.

Off to find info on any other site than bukatku

No offence but what the fuck happen to star wars being third person shooters on the playstation 2 man. Damn so it seems like any other first person shooter are the future of shooters nowadays, man what a damn shame.
DeltaCanuckian  +   898d ago
Battlefront ALWAYS had a first person mode...
djthechamp24  +   898d ago
yeah i know but it was just an option
DeltaCanuckian  +   898d ago
Since I can't reply to your reply: First Assault isn't Battlefront though, it's meant to gauge if there is still interest in this kind of game. If there were a full Battlefront game, I'm sure they'd add the option. LucasArts generally isn't one to screw fans over like that.

lol i played this mod in cod4 on pc :D

If done right this would be a good shooter
josephayal  +   899d ago
I'm more exitited about flinstones FPS
I'm not saying it's a bad Game But, It looks like a first-person shooter in the vein of Call of Duty
Donnywho  +   899d ago
So late to this party that I don't even think they're checking invitations anymore.
Brucis  +   899d ago
Let's hope Disney doesn't put this on hold or cancel it for some reason or another.

Star wars kinect was awesome!!!!

leaked footage my ass,its on purpose
Razgriz383  +   899d ago
Everyone asks for Battlefront 3. We get CoD Star Wars...Should've seen that one coming.
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   899d ago
Oh no. Make a game set in the Star Wars Universe, and make it like COD and BF. Oh no... that won't make money and be loved by millions or anything.
Razgriz383  +   899d ago
Well not everyone is a die hard BF or CoD fan. I'd MUCH rather have a somewhat original Battlefront experience than a game series that has been repeatedly beat to death...revived then beat to death again. Once again a case of listening for the dollar signs than what the customer wants. Thats half the problem with gamers today is that they'll let developers do that. Your response has nothing to do with what I said on a side note...I said people have been eager for Battlefront 3 and we get a CoD/BF clone. You somehow turn it into me saying that the game will not make any money at all...Read before posting?

Battlefront was pretty much Battlefield but in third person and with a Star Wars coat of paint. Calm down, you've seen less than 30 seconds of footage, we don't even know if this game is coming out. That said, all these "leaks" make me think we'll have an official announcement soon.
Ravenor  +   898d ago
Because something being popular and making money would be a bad thing for Lucasarts and Star Wars games that don't revolve around Jedi and force powers.

Some FPS/BF/CoD haters need to get a grip.
FrostyZipper  +   899d ago
I'd rather like to see a game in the vein of Death Troopers myself.
NonApplicable  +   899d ago
Who ACTUALLY wants this?
Kidmyst  +   898d ago
I'm hoping it has a good Single player campaign not just multiplayer. Considering the bugs I ran into with BF3 on PC and EA's Simcity launch on PC. I may take this over BF4. Wonder if this will come to PS4.
profgerbik  +   898d ago
Ew why would anyone want this garbage.. What a disgrace to the Star Wars name..
Relientk77  +   898d ago
It looks like they combined Star Wars and Call of Duty

I want another Battlefront game. The feeling of force choking noobs as Darth Vader is priceless :)
chukamachine  +   898d ago
I actually like the look of this.
TuxedoMoon  +   898d ago
Looks pretty, but not really interested. Especially if it just COD with a Star Wars skin...Need to see more news on this game.
noxeven  +   898d ago
Would have bought it day one
iizMonterZ_  +   898d ago
oh..no...this is going to be a total fail.
ZeekQuattro  +   898d ago
Just release SW Battle Front 3. Let a new studio complete it since the original dev's was shuttered.
STEWIE_PLAY_PS4  +   898d ago
, I would see Star Wars first assauit if got killstirke bring jedi :P
UnitSmiley  +   898d ago
What worries me the most is so far the leak is for XBLA. If this ever gets released at all, will it not come to PSN? :/
