Que the blasting Lucas orchestra, Star Wars battlefront is on its way to our galaxy!
EA has finally shed some light on its upcoming Star Wars title, with an avid mindset of having the game come out this holiday 2015. There is a high chance that the game will be released in conjunction with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, releasing December of this year.
EA has also confirmed more light will be shed on the project at the upcoming Star Wars celebration in Anaheim California, April 16 to 19th.
"We could not think of a better or more appropriate place to debut the game officially for the first time than the premier event that celebrates the Star Wars universe and the legions of fans who have fallen in love with it," EA announced on their site.
"Star Wars: Battlefront 3" is a first person shooter video game, which is actually EA Digital Illusions CE's take on what the "Battlefront" series should be. Two previous versions of the game were developed by other developers, namely Free Radical Design, Pandemic Studios and Rebellion Developments. In May 2013, EA signed an exclusive deal with Disney for rights to develop certain Star Wars games.
The game is most likely going to run on DICE's frostbite 3 engine, the exact same engine used in the Battlefield franchise.
Needless to say, I am very excited for the release of the next Battlefront game. In conjunction with The Force Awakens this coming holiday, I think Star Wars fans alike will have a lot to keep them busy this season!
