Only a week ago, I hit up a Battlefront II session with a good mate of mine, and not unexpectedly we caught up in a fun, and grandiose Star-Wars battle. Despite the quite humorous bugging in the main menu, making the Star Wars' soundtrack sound like a terrific and randomly bobbing Dj remix, we were still able to struggle our way through the menus and start up a split-screen game which fortunately worked fine.
A small anecdote, but goes to show that I was actually looking forward again to seeing Battlefront 3 come out one day. Battlefront II is currently selling well on Steam summer sales (since its in the top 10 sales) and the community is shouting out for a follow-up in the series.
Battlefront fan Conner Heggie has set up an ambitious campaign on Facebook to get ten million likes on his Facebook Page “Who wants Battlefront III” in order to show the developers that the fanbase still exists out there. His act of heroism has not gone without result, the page is now supported by 5,000 Star Wars and Battlefront fans in very little time. Interest for the game has spiked up recently with the emergence of a possible video for Battlefront 3 on youtube, but LucasArts quickly pulled the plug and the video is no more.
Right now nobody really knows what is happening at LucasArts and it is unknown if the videogame will ever appear in stores. I have great hopes for the game, and personally think there is still a possibility. If you would like to see Battlefront 3 announced, then quickly join the page.
The guys at "who wants Battlefront 3" have also put up a list of improvements and new additions they would like to see in the new game:
•The ability to pick up weapons fallen on the battlefield, to add to this the abilities to lie down like in Battlefront and to be able to melee enemies then to close. Also depending on how you fought and you took apart in battle, your armour if you survived should be battle-worn and a choice between 1st and 3rd person.
•Repair bots to return as they where remove from Battlefront II.
•Maps from the previous Battlefront return, though to be greatly improved to have more of its movie atmosphere; it should feel and look like from the movie etc. E.g. Utapau should be a whole sinkhole with many levels along with the core ship in the sink hole.
•Vehicle’s to be more like their movie counterparts for example the Arc-170 Starfighter has three sitting areas (Front/Middle/Back) while in Battlefront II it only had one.
•Planets and Locations from Battlefront & II to make an appearance such as Rhen Var, Bespin, Dune Sea and Yavin IV Arena.
More improvements can be seen on the facebook page. ;)
