Star Wars: Battlefront 3 Alpha Footage Leaked

Here's some leaked shaky-cam alpha footage of Free Radical's Star Wars: Battlefront 3, a game that is now rumored to be in the hands of developer Rebellion following Free Radical's near-closure.

It's tough to make out at times, but even on a tiny screen, it is clear that Free Radical was aiming for an impressive scale with the team-based multiplayer sequel.

  • It's surprising LucasArts pulled them off the project when the damn Alpha build looks that freakin' good, seriously, unless the video quality is somehow augmenting the look (doubtful), that looks like retail release quality. I loved the first two Battlefronts, but this looks like the dream Star Wars game. Lightsaber combat, infantry and ground vehicles, space combat, slick presentation, great visuals and animation, awesome cut-scenes, this game looks like it was gonna have it all. If this is any indication of the state the entire project was in, I can't imagine why LucasArts would pull Free Radical off the project (this looks leaps and bounds better than the previous Battlefronts), perhaps they weren't on track meeting some arbitrary release deadline. Anyway, here's hoping that Rebellion continues where Free Rad left off and doesn't just rush out an HD-version of Battlefront 2 and hope we'll not notice.
