I've recently had Google News send me stuff on Star Wars so I don't have to keep checking, so expect me to continue flooding the forums with updates like these.

Excerpt from article:
Quote:
Darren sits down with a group of gamers creating “what Battlefront 3 should have been”, and they are working hard to give their fellow fans a true sequel.

...

What exactly is Star Wars: BattleCry?

Star Wars: BattleCry is a free standalone game being developed with the CryEngine 3 SDK. We like to think of it as the ‘spiritual successor’ to Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

We want to incorporate the core gameplay elements of the Battlefront series but fix any shortcomings the original games had. Any features added to the game will be natural progressions fans would expect to find in a new Battlefront game: after all, we don’t want the game to become another generic shooter.
You can read the full article here.

Thoughts?

Cool, but not too keen on the name. Sounds more like a combnation of Battlefront and Far Cry.

But thankfully it seems that a Battlefront 2 sequel is on the horizon.

I will be all over this game. Battlefront 2 was an awesome game and not just on the merits of the game (even though I loved the gameplay), but also because of the Xbox Live player base. Made some real good buddies on that game and I was mad when they shut the servers down. Looking forward to this being released.

Looks nice, just hope that they really balance the weapons good. Kept getting sick in BF 2, everyone(for the most part anyway) just used the Vanguard, and shots rockets and mines everywhere....was really annoying.

Well... it kinda is. Hopefully the game won't be though!

And yeah, some form of BF sequel will be cool. Still waiting on the real thing though!

They can call it whatever they want so long as it has an 'Instant Action' game mode.

My god....


IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING!

Now to wait for a kotor 3 exploring the revan novel whilst actually making surik look like revans equal *cough*
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away from… save one.

I'd rather not, this game(and novel) seems to cover all of what happened with Revan and such. No real need to make something, just to re-iterate as to what happened.

Anyway am rather curious, that they are giving the engineers Proton Rifles..but eh. The graphics look nice too. Am curious to see, about making your own load out...however if they don't do extensive balancing then all I see is a bunch of people is just arming themselves with missile launchers and going crazy.

Unless the missile launchers would be more of a secondary weapon and only have like 2 shots.

I know it won't happen, and I know I'd probably hate it if it did, I just want some thing that actually shows the exile In her true light so we don't have to have the canon being this mess, that and I hated karpyshyns writing...
*sigh* I guess it's for the best to let the kotor franchise RIP, I'll always remember it <3
