Direct feed of the off-screen trailer of FR's BF3 that leaked a while back.

Awesome, thanks Fusion. I must have watched the old, horrible quality leak a dozen times. It's nice to see the high quality version.

I wish their game had been finished. Even if it was bad, SWBFIV doesn't have the curse SWBFIII has. :p

Uh, the highest quality you can go is 360p on that video, and even that isn't very good...

360 is a lot better than "camera at the back of the room with muffled audio" resolution.

Oh, I wasn't aware of the conditions of the different version mentioned. My bad.

So now I can piece together an element that wasn't quite clear for us until the clearer trailer was posted.

It seems that the Dark Obi-Wan storyline would have been a sub-storyline of the main campaign. Until now, we assumed the wrinkled figure who said "Stick to the plan, Kenobi" was Palpatine, when in fact, if you look carefully, you can see the markings on his very bald head which point to that being X1. Given that in the DS version of Elite Squadron, X1 plans to clone Luke, I think he actually cloned Obi-Wan, and that's what that was about, rather than an alternate what-if scenario like some people believed.

Here's the thing about Battlefront 3: Free Radical Edition. Technically speaking as long as Free Radical (now known as Crytek UK) kept all the assets locked away they can potentially now re-pitch the game to Disney.The odds of that happening are astronomical, but that's the best hope for Battlefront 3 at this point.

I am really hoping they'd do that. :runaway:

EA snagged an exclusivity deal to make Star Wars games. Some people might throw out the usual "oh crap" statement, but the fact is that EA will start putting games out again. On top of that even though they're viewed as an "evil corporation", the bulk of their games are pretty good on the whole.

Only downside? The possibility of DICE doing Battlefront.
