First: No, this isn’t footage from the upcoming EA DICE-developed Battlefront game that is due out in 2015. However, with EA confirming that they would be showing more of the new Battlefront at E3 in June, this leak couldn’t have come at a better time.
Many years before EA revived the Battlefront franchise, Free Radical Design was working on a new Battlefront game, to be called Battlefront III, for LucasArts. After two years in development, LucasArts pulled the plug on the game and Free Radical quickly shut down.
Now, more alpha footage of that six-year-old, unfinished Battlefront III has been leaked by YouTube’s Gamer Spawn showing both ground and flight combat as well as hero characters, multiple playable races and some story content. It looks like a damn shame that this one was cancelled.
