Rumours are circulating regarding a third entry in the Star Wars Battlefront series, a popular run of games that has twice managed to spawn a sequel but as yet has never managed to make it to a trilogy. While on first look the rumour appears to reveal very little – no gameplay or characters – it does reportedly reveal a portion of the skyline of the game’s map of Coruscant (which can be viewed here). As the image shows, this would be from the earliest levels of develoment for the project.
According to the leaker, the game will be marketed alongside the Coruscant map and Ahsoka, similarly to how Battlefront 2 was marketed with Maul and Naboo and Battlefront with AT-AT and Hoth. Adding to this particular point, the leaker claims Ahsoka will be based on her appearance in the Mandalorian, with Rosario Dawson doing the voice work.
The leak also relays word of the following: the return of co-op with reduced XP gain; a reworked version of the Star Card system, a new loadout system, and the merge of Starfighter Assault and Galactic Assault.
As for all of this information, it comes from an anonymous source, so take it with a grain of salt. Typically, this information wouldn’t be worth acknowledging given the nature of the source, but given that’s accompanied by an image that — seemingly — passes the sniff test, it’s been making the rounds.
This could turn out to be nothing, or it could be the seeds of that third entry in the modern Battlefront series, but either way tune in to the 88th episode of Making Tracks this coming Tuesday, where we discuss the voicework for the Star Wars series moving forward, a topic pertinent to this news..
