Over this "May the 4th be with you" weekend, the irrepressible Star Wars: Battlefront 3
once again returned from the grave with new footage and a live stream. "New" is a malleable word here, since all of this comes from a game that was canceled in 2008
and may have leaked in one form or another over the past five years.
The first occurrence of game footage was a livestream
. According to Game Informer
, ptoponline.com focuses on "coverage and streaming of pre-release games, betas, and canceled projects."
There was also some alpha build footage
, reportedly from a reel by developer Free Radical made in November of 2008, that was posted on Vimeo by Blue_Monkey.
The Star Wars franchise is now a licensing opportunity for developers and publishers following the closure
