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 like how current gen pre-alpha and alpha builds look better than many last gen games!
i am really looking forward to this.. i have starwars battlefront 2 sitting in my collection of xbox games :D this is going to be another game.. but i guess ill have to wait till its fully finished and all :P
Makes me want to play 2 again at least. It would be awesome if somebody would pick this up and finish it.
this game looks SICK!!
I hope somebody completes this because I will buy it.
Ive always loved this series I hope someone somewhere decides to finish this.
you're killing me, you really are......
space to planet and back again? seriously! this is too awesome to let go
I'd like a star wars universe game thats open world and completely non-linear. You can choose any race, start your game (depending on race) on your home planet, join any faction, fly around the galaxy, maybe the option to start game in old-republic era, or around when the imperials were taking over the universe, either way. It would be an amazing game, as the star wars universe could be so easily crafted into an awesome open world sandbox-y paradise. If only such a masterpiece could be done...
Battlefront 2 was probably the best game I ever had on the PS2. When Battlefront 3 was announced, I was so excited. I really wanted to see what multiplayer would be like. Now, I waiting for this or a PSVita version, since it has two analog sticks(yes.)
