Leaked details on Star Wars: First Assault, ‘Predecessor’ to Battlefront III
Last October, we saw a listing for Star Wars: First Assault, an unannounced Xbox Live Arcade game developed by LucasArts.
Today, Kotaku can reveal that Star Wars: First Assault is a downloadable multiplayer shooter that was originally slated for release this spring. The game supports up to 16 players—one eight-person team of rebels and one eight-person team of Stormtroopers—as they face off on Star Wars worlds like Bespin and Tatooine.
And according to one person familiar with the project, First Assault is ‘step zero’ to the heavily-rumored, highly-anticipated Star Wars: Battlefront III. If First Assault sells well—assuming it is released at all—the third Battlefront could be next.
The status of First Assault—like the status of Star Wars 1313 and other projects that LucasArts is currently working on—remains unclear today. The new direction of LucasFilm is also unclear. Just today, the company announced that they would no longer be releasing new episodes of the Clone Wars television show on Cartoon Network.
Actually, they didn’t. The Jedi council refused Qui-Gon’s request to train Anakin. They deemed him too old, and they also sensed his mind clouded, his future uncertain, and full of fear.
It was only after Qui-Gon’s dying wish, that Obi-Wan train him in the way of the Force, that the council *very* reluctantly gave him permission to train Anakin. All the while, the council voiced their concerns many, many times about how Anakin’s future was too clouded, and that he was a potential threat to the galaxy.
So, “they” didn’t say it would be fine, it was Qui-Gon Jinn.
All of these photos were taken by me. The first photo, “Boba Cobra” was taken at Kmart. The package had not been tampered with at all, so it hadn’t been repackaged. I’d rather Boba Fett be leader of Cobra than the Commander himself. The second, “Cheese Stick”, was taken at Zaxby’s. This was the only cheese stick to look like a dick, thankfully. The third, “Touch Me”, was taken in some discount store. It’s for the pedo in us. The last, “Do Not Enter”, was taken at my favorite store, Target. It’s a paradox, so, don’t look at it for too long.
