Now that there is a new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, due in theaters for the holidays, and a recent announcement of a spin-off movie Rogue One is enough to really generated a lot of hype for the franchise in the form of video games. One long-awaited video game from this franchise is Star Wars Battlefront 3, and its release date should be around December.
In case you are worried about it, Franchise Herald reports that Niklas Fergraeus, an EA DICE game designer, states that Star Wars Battlefront 3 has a "a great variety of multiplayer gameplay maps" and "the release date is reportedly right on track".
Of course, there is no mention of an exact release date, however, something tells me that this Star Wars game will be worth the wait. Fergraeus has told IGN that the gameplay will allow players to live out some of their most memorable Star Wars battle fantasies".
The Star Wars Battlefront series has a reputation of ending too early, according to Gamerant. The game is about fighting through enemy ranks for domination and control of maps that are key locations in the Star Wars films is definitely what Star Wars fans and gamers truly want to see. There was a leak of alpha footage that showed both Hoth and Endor, two locations of battles from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, respectively.
Apparently, Star Wars: Battlefront 3 was going to be released shortly after Battlefront II, which was over 10 years ago, but it was scrapped. The fact that it was revived has given Star Wars fans loving the idea of reviving the currently scrapped Star Wars 1313, which was supposed to be a dark and gritty game taking place within the Star Wars universe.
Star Wars: Battlefield 3 is set to have a release date of sometime in December. We don't have any exact confirmation on that, but considering that Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, is scheduled to come out on December 18, 2015, this is one deadline that really needs to me made. In fact, Star Wars Battlefield 3 plans to cover all seven of the Star Wars movies, including the newest one, according to Venture Capital Post. They also say that this is the "most expensive" Star Wars game in history, and it certainly is the most expansive.
According to the Latinos Post, Star Wars: Battlefront 3 intends to give everything that the first two Star Wars Battlefront games will have, and more. Players can choose to play as a first person or third person shooter, and they can play as a Rebel or Empire, depending on what they want. The game also has a 64 player only multiplayer mode, and players can even control bigger characters by spending points.
Look for Star War: Battlefield 3 some time in December for the PS4, PC, and Xbox One, hopefully around the time of the seventh official Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens.
