Hello Star Wars: Battlecry fans and Happy Star Wars day!

It’s been exactly one year from our announcement that we are moving to the epic Unreal Engine 4. A lot has changed since you first started witnessing our progress and watching everything slowly take shape.

Because it’s May the 4th as you already know, we think that this is a great moment to celebrate and reward your great support over the years with something special. We’ve put a lot of work on this and hopefully you will like it.

It’s time for our first gameplay video showing what we’ve been up to in Unreal Engine 4. Keep in mind that this is in a heavy WIP stage and a lot of things are missing. Everything you see is subject to change. So take this more as a proof-of-concept, the rest will be filled, polished and tweaked as we continue to make progress.

Now a few screenshots taken during our gameplay and the video itself.

Enjoy and may the Tr4iler be with you.

Bad ***! Hopefully you guys will finish and we will get a real BF3! Any single player support planned? Even if it's just bots, in fact I wouldn't expect anything more than the classic games. I returned my copy of the new BF due to download and DLC required, no sp, and online required. I saw the FAQ and it's not planned for now, but at least bots?

Can't believe I only just stumbled across this. Are there any updates? It would be awesome to see they are still working on it.

Awesome. I really hope Battlefront hasn't put you guys off the project - there's still a massive community that really wants a game like Battlefront 3!
I've sent an application to your hiring email just incase I can help in any way :)

it's good that Team Battlecry have updated their forums 9 days ago which means that they haven't give up.

Like "dg1995" before me, I also fear that this game might be forced to shut down permanently once Star Wars: Battlefront (by which I mean the 2015 video game) is released. The reason I say this is because the Walt Disney Company and EA DICE could issue a cease-and-desist for this freeware game.

However, I am sorry for asking this question, but if the cease-and-desist does not happen (once EA DICE's Star Wars: Battlefront is released), then, if the creators of this freeware game have permission from the Walt Disney Company and EA DICE, would this game have heroes and villains from the Clone Wars (such as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Clone Wars-era), Mace Windu, Aayla Secura, Yoda, Kit Fisto, Ki Adi-Mundi, Ahsoka Tano, Barriss Offee, Luminara Unduli, Darth Maul, Count Dooku, Asajj Ventress, Savage Opress, General Grievous, and Jango Fett), and even have heroes and villains from both the Dark Times (like Starkiller, Rahm Kota, Maris Brood, Kento Marek, Kazdan Paratus, Ezra Bridger, Kanan Jarrus, Obi-Wan Kenobi (old age), Juno Eclipse, Hera Syndulla, Sabine Wren, Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios, Agent Kallus, the Grand Inquisitor from Season 1 of Star Wars Rebels, and the two Inquisitors from Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels) and the Galactic Civil War? I am sorry for posting this long comment, but I felt that I needed to get it off my chest. Thank you, and keep up the good work.

I'm not entirely sure, but from what I know, companies can't force something like this to shut down unless the devs here are making money off of Disney's IP. If that's changed, I haven't heard about it haha.

Also, not saying you're wrong to post all that, but let them focus on getting the fundamental aspects of the game working before asking them to model, animate, and code over thirty different heroes. Even Battlefront 2 didn't have that many.
