EA Advances On Another Front With Star Wars: Battlefront

Star-Wars-BattlefrontEA has annouced that they will be creating and publishing a new Star Wars: Battlefront game.

The series has been in limbo for several years with the license having been passed around several companies with no success. With the recent folding of LucasArts, many of the licenses for Star Wars were freed up and EA signed an exclusive agreement to create and publish new games.

The new Battlefront game will be using the Frostbite 3 engine, the latest engine from the Battlefield creator. Not much else was shown aside from the teaser trailer and there is no release date as of yet or a price point. We do know that there will probably be multiplayer as the previous Battlefront games had it as their core but if they add a full-fledged single-player campaign that would be a first.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
