The lights are on
The website Kotaku has reported on a new Star Wars game with
ties to the Battlefront series entitled Star Wars: First Assault.
Kotaku's Jason Schreier has published a story on the game,
which is purported to be a downloadable online multiplayer game. According to
Kotaku, the game was conceived as a "Call of Duty-style first-person shooter"
and had been in development under the codename "Trigger."
Kotaku also says that the game is being conceived as a bit
of a test balloon for a possible Battlefront III. If successful, it will serve
as a lead-in to a new Battlefront III made on the same engine as First Assault.

Just forced all over my pantloons.
Kotaku != reliable news.
I really hope this is reliable. If it is, it is wonderful news!
First Assault, cool name.
I'll believe it when its a GI cover story!
Everyone getting excited really should read the original story... while this MIGHT be a lead up to BF3, its just as likely to never be released at all.
