Celebrate Star Wars Day with over an hour of footage from the defunct Star Wars: Battlefront III. Twitch TV channel, Past to Present (P to P) decided to celebrate the popular sci-fi staple by live streaming over an hour of new content from a pre-alpha build of the cancelled combat game. What a better way to celebrate a storied franchise than to get an in-depth glimpse into of the most requested Star Wars titles ever.
Originally developed by the now closed Free Radical Studioes, Battlefront III was a current generation combat game set in the Star Wars Universe. The first two titles allowed players to battle it out using the series’ famous vehicles, weapons and combat roles, as well as play as fan favorites like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Bobba Fett. Battlefront III was slated to allow PS3/Xbox players to begin their battles in space, above key planets, and seamlessly travel to land battles on the planets surface. Call it ambitious, but the whole thing sounds awesome.
Given the more recent closure of Lucas Arts and the cancellation of Star Wars 1313, it is nice to get such a long look at such an ill-fated project as Battlefront III. Their stream ended about an hour prior to the writing of this article, so we’ve embedded it after the jump.
