    The person above me is a time traveller because his post is before the actual post was posted. Reveal your secret time travelling knowledge!!!!

  2. keno I says:

    I would just like to say thank you. Every time my step-son and his friends play Call of Duty I tell them about the best online Multiplayer game ever on Xbox. They look at me as if I was talking about Contra or Pong. Finally I will be vindicated. As long as EA does not screw this up.

  3. Master Adasi says:

    Now we need Republic Commando 2…

  4. Concerned says:

    Yeah, but EA??? i’m having nightmares already – although i’ll be pleasantly surprised if it ends up being a decent game and not a DRM/Server dependent disaster! I hope DICE devs won’t let themselves get shackled by EA execs on this one

  5. Cody says:

    Will this only be on next gen consoles/PS4 & Xbox One?

  6. Ed says:

    I think that the new Battlefront will come for this generation of consoles as well as the new generations. I’m pretty sure EA will never let this chance of making more money just slip away for making it for the new consoles and all the marketing and whatever. Even though Frostbite 3 is a new engine might as well run for the Xbox and the PS3. Who knows…

  7. Aiden says:

    People saying will it be next gen only, Don’t forget the pc I will be buying on the next gen consoles but I would like it to be on pc for the modding sake

  8. Dude says:

    No one mention Origin yet?

    DICE has the resources to pull this off, only EA publishing will likely ruin it.

    and no information was given either.

  9. Agustin says:

    still playing battlefront II on ps2 and I still love it no matter how old it is and to hear that battlefront III is coming out I’m super excited

  10. Jacob says:

    I have been on Battlefront withdrawal, checking every day for the last 7 years on news about SB3 and finally the time has come.

  12. Anonymous says:

    Wil this also be for PC??? If so, Would it support A laptop with like…. I7 2630QM , And a AMD RADEON HD 6650M graphics card? , I guess my CPU wil make it, But im worried about my graphics card :(, Which CAN run the EVO 3 engine, So i hope It wil run Frostbite 3 :'(, Please reply, thanks in future πŸ™‚

  14. menudoman says:
    Greatest moment of young life. I remember I was 8 years old and I bought it the day it released. Today I am 16. I will do the same

  15. lovelyyyyyyyyyyyyyy gob smacked !

  16. Adrian says:

    Thank you Dice and EA!!! My dreams have come true. We have been waiting for this for so long time :’)

    I remember 4-5 years ago, when I usually spent time on this site, hoping to see star wars battlefront 3. Now finally!!!

    Dice, you have my blessings πŸ™‚

  17. Zayzee says:

    Really hope this will come to PC too.. (Proably will) I just got my new pc, and bought both Battlefront and Battlefront2 for the 3rd time.:)

  18. Even though its 23 seconds long, this is the best trailer ever. Twitter literally exploded when this broke.

  19. Hopefully they have also put in game the Planet to Capital ship system, that’s what we all want to see!

  20. Chaye says:

    It’s next Gen only. Xbone and PS4. Maybe PC in the future. It’s being developed on Frostbite 3. Frostbite 3 can’t be used with the WII U. It will also not be on current Gen consoles as they can’t use the engine either.

  21. danny says:

    I do not care what console this gets released on, I am buying it!!!!! Been waiting 8 years, I had totally given up on this ever happening and then bam, one rainy day in London turns into the happiest day ever!!!!!!! I feel sorry for my girlfriend :/

  22. Gold Man says:

    Let us take a moment, to pity the people who had given up hope on this game…

    Now that that’s done, I am freakin’ excited for this! Never once did I get up hope for this game, I knew it would come eventually. What do ya know, 5 years later (for me), EA announces Star Wars Battlefront. Having played the original SWBF on PC for nearly 3 years now, and the second one for less than a year, I finally have this to look forward to.

  23. Vincent says:

    So long time I follow you on this website, It’s just awesome ! I love you, EA and DICE, let’s go the fight has begun NOW =D

  24. Tim says:

    This is great! Lets just hope they don’t cancel it. I think maybe our wait was worth it, sure the game has skipped and entire console generation and we are now entering the PS4, Xbox One Era but that doesn’t mean this game won’t be on current gen consoles, we should see top of the line graphics because it has been such a long time. I hope that they still keep battlefront true to it’s roots, I am praying they don’t turn it into a first person shooter, We need a third person mode and first person as an option would be cool. I hope they make the game more interesting too, a good story with cutscenes is a must. It seems as if EA are actually listening to the fans rather than Lucasarts who did whatever the hell they wanted.

  25. Yes says:

    Now all I want is a new Rogue Squadron. It seems those don’t get as much love as they should.

    • Ed says:

      Surely those games were good and all but the storyline was changed somehow from the movies and it was off balance when it comes to space combat. Sometimes the enemy doesn’t even perform dogfights just fly around meaninglessly. If DICE is making BF3 then the space combat will look like real dogfights with jets from Battlefield 3 and/or 4.

  26. YES!!! Finally and made by dice so we know the gameplay for multiplayer will be top notch and the graphics top notch πŸ˜€

  27. Sam Pye says:

    do you guys think it will be out for pc, hope it is. thanks for reading

  28. Let’s ponder the possibilities now:

    Frostbite Engine 3. This means we will be able to destroy the Jedi Temple. Perhaps we can have scenarios from the movies for our single player missions. Heck, just have the events but let us live them out as any character from the field, be it Wedge, Dack, Hobbie, etc. Bring in the Rogue Squadron names, including the Expanded Universe names, into the single player experience. We want a well crafted single player experience because that is what Star Wars games are known for. However, this could potentially be the first respectable Star Wars title with an excellent online gameplay mode for the next gen consoles. I can’t name a single SW game on the 360 or PS3…

    Okay, possibilities. Jedi Temple destruction, Coruscant falling to pieces, force powers being able to destroy buildings, Endor trees toppling onto Ewoks (poor little warriors…), lightsaber battles being able to destroy buildings, thermal detonators destroying Xizor’s Palace like in the Shadows of the Empire novel!

    Games modes: give us RACING. We want to race in the narrow trenches of Beggar’s Canyon and go through the Stone Needle in Skyhoppers. We want to race in Endor with speeder bikes like in Rebel Strike.

    Ships. Give us EU map packs! Give us the Outrider and the Ebon Hawk to be able to walk into and control the guns. Same for the Y-Wing and Falcon, as we were able to do in the past games. R2 units must be able to be particularly destroyed as well, as they are a key component in the ship’s stability. For example, the R2 unit can repair a blown engine, so give us the ability to destroy the R2 unit and blow only a single Y-Wing engine. How fun would that be? It’s all about the possibilities.

    Force powers: let us topple buildings using the Force. Break apart something and throw it against the building to topple it. Lightning strike it to do the same. Force push as well. Lightsabers NEED to be able to do the same to buildings. The combat system…well, let’s hope it’s going to be MUCH more advanced with lightsabers now because the past lightsaber gameplay was dismal to say the very least. It needs to be on pay with Jedi Outcast level if this game is going to be respectable to me. This game simply is NOT about shooting with lasers, but combat with lightsabers.

    Oh, and I’m already assuming that we will be able to mimic the Battle of Endor, as we were able to do in Elite Squadron and potentially in the unreleased Battlefront 3. I can see it now: missions lasting an hour. Destroy the bunker, fly into space, cover Lando and Wedge as they destroy the main reactor (heck, we should be able to do that ourselves), and fly out before we burn to shreds. Oh, and be able to escape to the surface as well. Options guys, options.

    Looks like my hopes are a little too high, but hey, “this is where the begins.” πŸ˜‰

    • Ed says:

      Cool story bro’! Anyway we do know a lot about the events in the movies and so many games have repeated the same storyline in the past years. I rather have a more inside story of the 501st from Battlefront 2 revamped and everything as a well as more enemies and intelligent AI. I don’t think DICE Battlefront will be another Rogue Squadron or Rebel Strike but a much more better game for sure.

  29. JediNegro says:

    I found this site a while back and would frequent it to keep updated on the speculations. I had to jump to this site to celebrate after I saw the news on E3. It was like hearing your people have been freed after 7…thousand years of bondage. I feel like I just witnessed Moses(EA) free us from the pharaoh. I now only hope we dont wonder Tatooine (dessert) for too long before we get it in ours hands. So surreal.

  30. Aamir says:

    I cried while watching the trailer. I had lost all hope of there being another battlefront game, wow its finally here.

  31. BigBenC07 says:

    I never thought I would literally have chills all over my body, have an urge to jump off my couch and run around the house because of a video game trailer. I guess eight years of waiting and following faint glimmers of hope will make you do crazy stuff.

  32. Steve says:

    Now if this one gets cancelled i think il just throw myself off the nearest bridge. That said, ITS ABOUT DAMN TIME!!!:)

  33. tracto16 says:

    ..tears of joy… and i never ever cry

  34. Brandon says:

    YA! I hope more is shown at E3. EA and DICE DON’T THIS UP!

  35. Scott says:

    This is the part where I wake up, isn’t it?

  36. Seb says:

    FINALLY AFTER 300 YEARS WE FINAlLY HAVE IT NOW ALL WE NEED is SW 1313 ( it was about boba fett) / Republic Commando 2 / Obsidain rpg sw game set between eps 3 and 4 !

  37. Robert says:

    Oh my god….I can’t believe it. I’ve been going to this site on and off for the past 4-5 years to check on the up and up and just to see this come to fruition is beautiful!!! Oh my the dream is happening! And by DICE (actually a CA game studio re-branded as DICE) but with Frostbite engine! OMG!!!

  38. SDURS says:

    YES! THANK THE MAKER! They really should pay homage to NITRO is some form, i mean we all hoped for it, but this guy proved to all of us his undying devotion. Put him in the credits or something!

  39. jumpyhat3 says:

    call of duty,battlefield,and halo bow down to your ruler who has gone through 8 years of relentless beatings it took from lucasarts…THIS…THIS IS OUR REWARD FOR HAVING THE PATIENCE OF A GOD, we deserve it more then ever!!!!!

  40. Oscar says:

    The day has come! For years I used to scour the internet looking for news. Then I found this site. Felt great I wasn’t alone waiting for this game. Just wanted to say thanks for having this site up. Can’t wait for this game!

  41. jumpyhat3 says:


  42. Timothy Lugo says:

    11…thats how old I was when I got SW Battlefront 2. Ive been waiting 7 years for this game and I never gave up on it because of how amazing the first 2 were. I was there through the mess of Free Radical to the closing down of Pantech. Finally we got what we wanted. Good riddance lucasarts..thank you EA!

  43. Dat Guy says:

    Just what we like to see from our debut trailers, absolutely nothing. Ugh, this isn’t the best start.

  44. Josh says:

    FINALLY! There better be a PC release or I’m going to be very unhappy. It really hope it has the 4 player local galactic conquest.

  45. i bet B3 will not be cancelled like the others or B3 being cancelled at all. and it can’t be turned down now. the game is finally made. but good luck on the next trailer for BATTLEFRONT 3.

  46. Is it ok to say that I’m crying tears of joy right now?

  47. Phlipiman says:

    I JUST CANT BELIEEEEVE how HAAAPPYYY im right now!!! MAN I’ve been playin these games since swbf1’s release all the way back in 2004!!!! I was a freaking kid back then and now im all grown up and even married, still im overjoyed by this, like if i was this little kiddo’ all over again lol (my wife even made remarks about it lol) !!!

HERE IT IS!! FINALLY! Thank You for being here for us bf-fans all these years! <3 Looking forward to see this site develop further as the game gets released!

  48. EAILOVEYOU says:


  49. […] Possible new Battlefront 3! Star Wars: Battlefront … IS FINALLY HERE!!!! | Star Wars: Battlefront 3 It was during EA's official preview today, so… I'd call it pretty […]

  50. KnightGambit says:

    Seems to be a Reboot not a Sequel
    Will it implement the Ground-2-Space from the canaceld game?
    And will it have destructible building and 64 online multiplayer like on Battlefield 4?

  51. This is a great day! I have been waiting for this moment for 7 years. I still play Battlefront 1 and 2 to this day. Battlefront 3 or the new Battlefront has so much potential, so EA better do a good job on it. I will purchase the next gen console just for this game. They should bring back maps like Rhen Var and Bespin and make them more modern off course. Cant wait to see what they do with maps like Hoth and the Death Star, they’ll be massive in size hopefully. Also would like to see them come out with KOTOR III – Old Republic doesn’t count, and Republic Commandos 2.

  52. Patrick says:

    Did anyone else cry when they saw this…

    WE DID OUR WAITING… Eight Years of it!

      Β Β β–²
      β–²Β β–²

      It is here



    • Shaun says:

      I want this game to come out a lot. I’ve been waiting for BF3 or whatever its name is going to be for a long time but they have tried to make this game before several times and failed so I’m not getting my hopes up too high. i don’t want to rain on everyones parade but its true. hopefully they are a company that will finally follow through with making it. im excited but doubtful.

      • Kowagaru says:

        Yes, they have tried to make this game many times and failed. However it has never been in such a good developer’s hands and has never been announced before. Before it’s existence had only been confirmed through leaks. This is a full blown announcement.

  55. David says:

    I’ve been playing this game online for 7 years praying for a sequel. I had all but given up, thank you EA!

  56. Alden says:


  57. Joseph says:

    When Bad Company 2 came out years ago I talked with a friend about how cool it would be if Dice made SWBF3 and now my dreams have come true after 8 years. To all the people that said Disney closing lucasarts was a bad idea HA IN YOUR FACE. Closing lucaarts allowed disney to go out and spend some money for a REAL developer to make a good SWBF game. Thank you Disney.

    • Dan says:

      I did hate the fact that Disney closed Lucas arts… Until they gave the rights to EA.

      Lucas arts was making appalling games and moving away from developing games to publishing shity games like monkey ball.

      With EA, they have loads of gaming development companies that produce massive titles. This was a great call by Disney

  58. Jason says:

    I cannot wait, i have been NEEDING this game to come out since i was a kid!

  59. Durden says:


    The real question remains, will it be available on the PS3 & 360 or will it be next gen only?

  60. darthobiwan says:

    I have been waiting for this post for eight years. Oh my God. This is actually happening. No rumors, no old footage, no, this is real.

  61. Mat says:

    I am going to buy a next gen console just for this!

  62. Darth Stoked says: So friggin excited!

  63. Tyler says:

    YES!!! Finally, after years of hoping, the dream of a new Battlefront game is on its way to becoming a reality. I watched the whole EA E3 reveal just to see this. Judging from the trailer, all Battlefront fans have something wonderful to look forward to in the near future.
