New Star Wars Battlefront III Pre-Alpha Footage Surfaces - Shows Just What Could Have Been

"This footage is also of the Xbox 360 build. It seems like a quick and dirty port, not optimized at all. This continues in all aspects of the game, as it continues to say "Exit to Desktop." Framerates are bad, AI is virtually non-existent, nothing has been bug tested, it isn't feature complete, the list goes on."

Argh! Game will never come out :(

they know we want it so im sure they will come up with something. im enjoying the old republic at the moment.

Atleast there is footage of this, not even a rumor exists of Jedi knight 4.

DeadlyFire1575d ago

I wouldn't say a rumor for Jedi Knight 3 doesn't exist. If you add up the Jedi Knight games you would get 5 instead of 3 or 4. The sequence goes without a 3 so far.

Spark Unlimited project was first rumored as a sword fighting game. So all the Battlefront 3 teases could just be for show. We don't really know. All that is for certain is Spark Unlimited are working with Lucasarts on a Star Wars title.

Funny thing is Rebellion started work on a new 3rd person shooter title. In past couple of months. Could just be a PS Vita Battlefront game, but likely that wouldn't release alone without a home edition for consoles/PC.

The game looks to have had massive potential, the sheer scope of the game, with transitions between ground and space battles being seamless and sublime (regardless of the footage being from an incredibly early stage of the games development). I hope this game'll release someday...

But then Starhawk happened...

modesign1575d ago

did they only make the medical frigate and the domes star destroyer models as the only fleet vessels. lol

this guy couldnt hit the broadside of a barn with a lightsaber.

wasnt there a battlefield for psp that is just like this,

TekoIie1575d ago

This is an early version so I assume things would be different. To how they WOULD have ended up for release.

arjman1575d ago

Apparently Battlefront Elite Squadron (or whatever its called) started out as the PS2/PSP version of Battlefront 3 but after Free Radical tanked they continued development using different assets, etc...

I never got to experince the Battlefront games online, but seeing as it was good enough with just bots, I imagine they would be amazing online titles!

Farsendor11575d ago

star wars battlefront 2 still has a strong online community on pc anyways i don't know about the other systems.

I can understand the massive lag and non-existant textures, but the horrible character animations are ps2 era! And when a pilot gets into a ship, he still walks up to one and just "pops" in? No cool entry animation? And I know the sound was recorded from speakers, but the blaster sound effects again, ps2 era! Also the flight animations were very last gen too! I am a huge swbf fan but after playing Killzone 2/3, I am very spoiled when it comes to shooters I guess.

TheGameFoxJTV1575d ago

Dude, this is barely even Alpha. Do you have any idea what that means?

mayberry1574d ago

I sure do know what "alpha" means.
my point is that as a gaming hobbyist for over
30 years now, and by researching the games that I've been interested in for most of that time, I have seen more "alpha" footage of games than problably a very high percentage of people that game as of now. And by looking closely at this "alpha" footage, to me it would have to be taken back to the drawing board for the points I stated to be significantly built up to be considered a title worthy of this gen's consoles. I will even go as far as to acknowlege this going multi-plat, i.e. the lowest build quality available.
Again... I am a huge fan of the series to the point that if this "alpha" build was released today at these specs, I'd still buy it for 60 u.s dollars right now.
