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.
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.
The Force is strong with this one!!!
The force is going down the toilet once battlefield 4 is shown
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]
Wasn't POTC always Disney?
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 $$$$
For the most part Disney does a pretty good job keeping Disney out of the art.
@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 !!!
@ThatArtGuy 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.
@Zhipp "Ed Catmull Alvy Ray Smith Steve Jobs" Founded Pixar. According to Wiki, Pixar used to be the graphics department for Lucas Film.
@ jakmckratos "Shut up Meg." 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.
this is a must-buy for me. hopefully we will see some jedis in this shooter too.
Hijacking top comment. Someone post an alternate link, I refuse to give Kotaku hits.
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.
So long as there is no Quick-Scoping with a Laser Sniper I'm all in.
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.
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.
It'll be even higher if Disney cancel it.
If it isn't Battlefront 3 I don't care.
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 WTF No
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.
Battlefront ALWAYS had a first person mode...
yeah i know but it was just an option
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 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
shame no one plays it anymore :(
If done right this would be a good shooter
I'm not saying it's a bad Game But, It looks like a first-person shooter in the vein of Call of Duty
So late to this party that I don't even think they're checking invitations anymore.
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
Everyone asks for Battlefront 3. We get CoD Star Wars...Should've seen that one coming.
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.
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.
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.
I'd rather like to see a game in the vein of Death Troopers myself.
Who ACTUALLY wants this?
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.
Ew why would anyone want this garbage.. What a disgrace to the Star Wars name..
It looks like they combined Star Wars and Call of Duty
Let Disney know you want this game: http://www.facebook.com/pag...
I want another Battlefront game. The feeling of force choking noobs as Darth Vader is priceless :)
I actually like the look of this.
Looks pretty, but not really interested. Especially if it just COD with a Star Wars skin...Need to see more news on this game.
Would have bought it day one
oh..no...this is going to be a total fail.
Just release SW Battle Front 3. Let a new studio complete it since the original dev's was shuttered.
, I would see Star Wars first assauit if got killstirke bring jedi :P
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? :/
Ah good times with the cod4 star wars mod. This has the potential to be amazing thanks to disney $$$'s. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
People afraid that Disney will ruin this? LucasArts were already ruining themselves during this generation (No new KOTOR, no new JK, no new BF, no new Republic Commando) and their new games are disappointing like that EPIII game, Force Unleashed and all those lego spawns. If you people knew what LucasArts capable of, since the late 80s to 2005, you should very optimistic that Disney WILL save LucasArts from its doom.
