Well Battlefrontians, it looks like Kotaku.com has come through for us again! Over the last few days they have reported that Star Wars: First Assault is “the troubled multiplayer shooter that could be LucasArts’s downloadable take on Battlefield and Call of Duty” and also the “predecessor” for Battlefront 3.
Today they have posted 2 video clips of game play footage from Star Wars: First Assault! It actually looks really, really good and I can now see why everyone has dubbed it a Call of Duty knock off.
“The first clip is the pre-rendered intro to the trailer. It gives you a look through the eyes of a Stormtrooper putting on his helmet”
“The second clip contains gameplay footage from Star Wars: First Assault. In this clip, you can see stormtroopers and rebels battling across various Star Wars locales, like the desert planet Tatooine. It’s very reminiscent of multiplayer mode in a first-person shooter like Call of Duty or Battlefield or Lucas’s own Star Wars: Battlefront.”
