Hey Battlefrontians, over the last few days, a user named “Borman” has been tweeting me, saying to get ready for some pretty cool stuff featuring Free Radical’s Battlefront 3 and it looks like he has come through with a pretty awesome video that shows off Free Radicals Alpha build of Battlefront 3.
Also according to Borman Free Radical’s description of Battlefront was “Star Wars Battlefront 3, Description : The Future of Gaming, Release Date – 2008-11-06″.
He claims this is the Xbox 360 version of Free Radicals Battlefront 3 and that the PC version was the leading platform.
I was lucky enough to get some footage and impressions of the game. This footage is the best I could get for the time being. Remember, this game was in an alpha state when it was cancelled. The old leaked footage was from a Free Radical Design event in November of 2008. I believe that this footage is from around March – April 2008, so depending on when the old leaked footage was recorded, it could be up to 8 months older. This footage is also of the Xbox 360 build. It seems like a quick and dirty port, not optimized at all. This continues in all aspects of the game, as it continues to say “Exit to Desktop.” Framerates are bad, AI is virtually non-existent, nothing has been bug tested, it isn’t feature complete, the list goes on.
Check out the video below!
A huge thanks to Borman for the amazing footage. Great work!
