Apr 16, 2015

EA has tweeted out this first full look at the Stormtrooper design from their upcoming game Star Wars Battlefront. The game is expected to give gamers an updated experiences on the battlefield within the Star Wars universe, this possibly suggests you will indeed get to play for the Empire as a trooper. Not to mention setting maps on famous Star Wars environments including Hoth, Tatooine, and Endor.

It’s expected to be a lot like the cancelled game Star Wars First Assault which had been developed over at LucasArts before Disney gave the game developing rights over to EA. In that version you were either playing as Rebel or Empire forces, which seemingly is the same concept of BattlefrontFirst Assault was to be a downloadable “predecessor” to Star Wars: Battlefront III.

First Assault was essentially going to be a first person shooter similar to Battlefield which makes sense that the people over at Dice ended-up developing Battlefront. Here is some footage and images from the axed First Assault via Kotaku. Honestly, to me it looks like First Assault was repurposed to become Battlefront 3 instead.
