The lights are on
Gamers have not quite gotten over the fact that Free Radical Design was once working on Star Wars: Battlefront III before the developer shut down. The dream lives on in this leaked footage of the game's pre-alpha build.
YouTube user Borman18 has posted the footage below from a very early March 2008 360 version of the game, which has been quickly ported over from the PC. Although it's unoptimized for the console, the series normal mix of ground/air combat is in full effect.
Studios such as Pandemic and Rebellion Developments have been tied to the project since Free Radical's demise, but the game's current fate is unknown.
For details on what we'd like to see if and when Battlefront III comes out, check out our feature on the game.

I might've already had this same nerdgasm, seeing this clip a few months ago. Regardless, it still sucks that this still won't be coming out.
This is what Ive been looking for so long... Hope Spark Unlimited is making it.
Looks awesome. Here's to hoping we get to play it some day.
Even though the pre-alpha build looks crappy, I still can't wait for this.
I think it's a big miss that this franchise hasn't made it to current gen. I played hundreds of hours on PS2. Someone needs to pick up the banner and run with it. although at this point, maybe they should skip over this generation and start working on a launch title for the next gen.
I hope it comes true!!
My life is complete once I get this.
Oh man, I don't care how janky it looks, I would totally play that! Hell, it looks better than Kinect Star Wars did last night!
holy crap cant wait
I hope you all know that Spark Unlimited has been working on the game since Free Radical dropped it?
Pretty cool even though it is a bit ruff.
I'd actually like to see this, except I'm a bit concerned about Pandemic making it after the total train wreck drink coaster that Mercenaries 2 turned into.
Man what could have been!
what the hell is an aluminum falcon?
The first two Battlefront games where so much fun! I hope this can someday come to light.
can we ask for a kickstarter for this or something
Meh, I don't need Battlefront III. I have Movie Battles II :D.
I really hope this game sees the light of day in the future. 1 & 2 were some of my favorite Star Wars games ever made. There was only one problem I had, and it's because I'm a huge Star Wars nerd. I assume that last map that was shown was Hoth. If they do the whole, space battles mixed with land battles, Hoth shouldn't have a space battle lol
There was no space battle in the movie, so there shouldn't be in the game.I'm so nerdy.
