Footage from the Cancelled Star Wars: Battlefront 3 Game Surfaces.


The footage shows a pre-alpha gameplay from the cancelled Star Wars Battlefront 3 game developed by Free Radical. It’s from 2007 and is being run on an Xbox 360…



From YouTube:

Some footage of the build of Star Wars Battlefront 3 that got canceled. This build is from 2007 and was ported over from the PC. This content is not mine, it is the property of Disney. No copyright intended, this is purely for review of the build. The game looked very fun to play and runs pretty well other then the obvious frame rate drops. It is very sad that this game got canceled although there is one being made by DICE now. This is being run on an Xbox 360 for those of you that got confused.





Looks fine but we’re all waiting for DICE’s new Battlefront game, expected to be released in mid-2015.

    Thank god they canceled this turd, much like the prequel movies, better to wait for technology to advance enough to provide adequate Star Wars.

    Star Wars Episode VII: Revenge of Battlefront 3

      It’s not even worthy of the Prequels, it looks like they were trying to emulate the Dark Priest from WOW. That ain’t real star wars!

        Though to be fair this is a 2007 game, so yea the graphics will look dated. It still looks like a terrible game though. When I look back at games where I remember the graphics being great & see it now and thinking “wow looks bad” it just goes to show how incredibly fast video game tech progressed. Though I’ll go back and play some of those games and put up with the bad graphics, because they are still fun to play.

      if your talking about the graphics then it’s kind of a non-statement. This isn’t beta, it isn’t even alpha. There was a time when the graphics on lord of the rings were worse than this. This footage is about gameplay dynamics, the sweet graphics texturing comes (or would have come) later.

      Really the only thing that can be judged from this footage is game-controls and map design.

      Prequels bashing again. Really!?!

      I adore look of the prequels. This is on other hand just bad. Like some Anime game.

    Damn, Viral! You almost gave me a heart attack! ๐Ÿ˜›

    The Battlefront they’re currently working on looks so BA. Imo (Comes out 2015 I believe?)

    Looks like some people on here don’t understand how video games are made.

    • October 20, 2014 at 11:18 pm

      Yer darn tootin’ they don’t understand.
      If they did, they’d know “Free Radical” has a pedigree
      of a little game known as “GoldenEye”. *ahem*

    all the battlefront games sucked. besides KOTOR or when The Old Republic was first released before they destroyed it with patches and killed the game ( that game could have been the best MMO out there), there has not been a good star wars game released since jedi Knight 2 and Jedi Academy. Force Unleashed looked great, had a great story…but the game sucked. I never understood how lucasfilm could produce the best technology, but at the same time produce the worlds worst games.back in the early 80’s when ATARI 2600 was the big rage, all of the Star Wars games for that were boring and sucked. I will be amazed if the new Battlefront is any good.

    DICE should make the new Battlefront pretty worthwhile, with their BF experience it’s an obvious choice (it’s still a conquest game like any other). Aside the ground combat i hope they manage to capture the speed and chaos of space flight.

    64 player dogfights/fleet engagements would be pretty insane, like the BF1942 map Coral sea. I really hope they don’t go the way of Titanfall and include a lot of cannon fodder bots to fill in, it’s just not the same. Just speaking from taste.

    I wouldn’t mind if they would up the playercount for the really big maps. Would give Hoth an authentic feeling. Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising with 150 was a good example…

    Damn, that’s awful. Thank the Maker they canceled the game.

  • October 20, 2014 at 9:18 pm

    I’d love to see a Republic Commando sequel. God, that game is amazing. The soundtrack, the missions. Everything!

    Its funny how few people can comprehend the fact that this is a prealpha test build that was never meant to be seen by the public… Had the game not been cancelled the release version would likely have looked like a completely different game!

    Aras volodka, bin laden, and paolo henrique:

    What don’t you understand about “PRE ALPHA”?!!? Are you dense? This is far from finished and is obviously going to “look awful.”

    “Good thing they cancelled it”!? Um no the final product would look absolutely nothing like this. What did you think all of the games you consider great were always that way? No they were once in pre alpha as well and you would’ve said the same. How old are you? Did you not read the title before your child-like impetuous comments?

    Should we just cancel the construction of buildings that are soon to be world-renowned simply because they “look awful” in their earliest stages of construction?

    Here is a gameplay video that looks WAY better than that pre-alpha.That’s Free Radical version.

    On the other hand, nowdays we’ve got DICE hands on Battlefront with a much better engine and i’m sure the gameplay will be MUCH better. They also stated that they don’t want to make this a Battlefeild copy.

    By the way, Viral Hide – the picture that you used for the headline is actually from Star Wars:The old Republic MMO, which has nothing to do with Free Radicals’s BF.
