Star Wars: Battlefront III Wish List - GameInformer

GameInformer: "It’s been a long wait. Star Wars Battlefront II released to consoles and PC way back in 2005, and the past six years have only given fans two PSP games and a host of rumors about a true console sequel. Variously rumored to be in development by Free Radical, Pandemic, Rebellion, and Spark Unlimited, the actual fate of Battlefront III is shrouded in mystery.

Even so, an enthusiastic fan base remains. Perhaps someday soon we’ll receive definitive word on a new installment, but in the meantime we’ve wracked our brains for the best ideas we could come up with for Battlefront III. (PC, PS3, Star Wars: Battlefront III, Xbox 360)

Just make it the best game ever.

Great controls, great graphics, huge levels, pack it full of everything Star Wars. Just go all out like your trying to crush Battlefield 3.

and for Gaming sakes DO NOT turn it into Call of Duty!!

I agree. Batttlefront III should be based entirely on Battlefield 3 + Republic Commando + Jedi Knight + Moviebattles 2 mix though I believe.

First person/third person. Up to at least 64 player PC dedicated servers. Non gamespy crap.

Heroes should be left out of the game or just in special modes. Jedi class should be implemented and balanced out so there are limits. No unlimited force powers like force push times 1000 or anything like that and ability to actually get shot. Jedi die just like anyone else in the Star Wars galaxy.

battlefront 2 is still online on steam for anyone who wants to get there fix.

I play SWBF2 on my backward compatible PS3 sometimes... I'll start a match and within a few min at least 4 - 5 people will be in and it grows from there. During the PSN outage I could still play SWBF 2 online as they had external servers, and I think more than a few people figured that out and had a good time. I really want SWBF3 though... I have been in the speculation thread on the LucasArts forum for a long time... I'm zach_tx1 over there.

A new Star Wars Battlefront would be aces, especially with what they could bring to it with all that's been learnt about console multiplayer over the last 5 years.

Saw that last image and felt the urge for Republic Commando.

better yet: Star Wars Battlefront HD Collection

i say that for the mean time, add battlefront 1, 2 and renegade squadron, dont add elite squadron because it wasn't that good, but okay add it anyway because it did have okay campaign but the galactic conquest was bad, have like 30 trophies/achievements on both battlefront 1 and 2 and 12 trophies/achievements on renagade and elite.

i would pay FULL price for this

EDIT: also for battlefront 2 add the exclusive missions from the psp version of the game

wasn't there problems with the studio making it?

they went bankrupt.
TheGameFoxJTV  +   1569d ago
How the hell can that company go bankrupt while working on two highly anticipated games!? LMAO, people should have been throwing money at them to publish that game! A current-gen Star Wars game, and Timesplitters!!!!!
guitarded77  +   1569d ago
Free Radical was working on it and Timesplitters 4, they went into administration because LucasArts pulled funding. Rumor was that funding was pulled after Haze turned out to do poorly. Free Radical was purchased by Crytek and is now Crytek UK. Once the game was pulled, it was rumored that the game went to Rebellion... turned out Rebellion was working on the handheld SWBF Elite Squadron, whether they had their hands on SWBF3 is uncertain. Most recently it is rumored that Spark Unlimited has the game due to the fact that they are hiring for...

"Spark is looking for a senior multiplayer designer for a 3rd Person Action/Adventure title in a high-profile science fiction franchise currently greenlit for full production development for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC markets. The Senior Combat Designer will be responsible for collaborating on developing game design systems, AI behaviors, player mechanics, and game balancing, tuning and timing for a third-person action shooter on current-gen consoles."

Also, the game is being built on Unreal and LA have recently signed a deal to use Unreal. It's not certain that this is SWBF3, but there are some clues to support the theory.
TABSF  +   1569d ago
Well everyone involved in previous titles went bankrupt besides Rebellion which has moved onto other projects.

Pandemic went Bankrupt (Formed into new studio)
Free Radical went Bankrupt (Purchased by Crytek)

All the studios that made the games great either can't get involved or LucasArts will not let them.
Really badly want it, the leaked footage for Free Radical was just out of this world.

Just make this game happen.

LA doesn't get involved with PC games anymore. EA put up the money for SWTOR and LA is just banking on the SW brand.

Its a good idea, but if not for the SW brand, LA would have disappeared years ago. Rumor is that LA wants to do everything in house, which could be a horrible idea. Just ask anyone who played SWG how good LA is at making design decisions.

For years the SW fan in me was convinced LA could do no wrong. This blinded me to the fact that LA, despite some successes, is a mediocre company whose library is filled with shitty titles. And the few gems they did have were buried in that pile of shit and forgotten about. For the PC gamers it was worse, for our loyalty in the early years we got called a bunch of pirates and given the finger.

There are a few SW titles I would love to see come back, but I would rather never see them again than have LA so much as breath in the general direction of those titles.
