Remember the time when we all were obsessed with a game called Battlefront 2. Wow that game was amazing, its seemingly flawless campaign, and the true story behind the Jedi's demise. If they would only make another, to end this amazing trilogy.... Battlefront 3. Yes you heard correctly. This group will give you the insight on everything that is currently involved in the making of Battlefront 3. All your questions will be discussed, and answered by a small group of battlefront 3 experts. We did our research. Hours of constant google searches and looking through massive online forums, all for the Moddb Community. Please enjoy what we would like to call, one of the greatest games, almost made.

Post news Report content RSS feed February update - slightly delayed, but still awesome!

Sorry for the wait BattleCry fans. But just because there was a slight delay doesn't mean we haven't been making great things!

Posted by rocknroll237 on Mar 3rd, 2013

Hello again Star Wars: BattleCry fans!

First off, we'd like to say sorry for the lack of an update in February. We've all been pretty busy and weren't able to get our stuff ready in time.

But do not fret! We're still making lots of progress!

Before we show off our latest work, we want to let you know that we've finished our F.A.Q. Please read it before asking us questions about the game. Thanks.

We have a few other announcements to make:

  • Our website is currently being re-designed and will be open to the public later on in the year
  • We are currently making new designs for our moddb, indiedb and Crydev pages
  • 2D artist Josh Archer has created a new logo and has come up with a new presentation theme for particular assets. You'll see the new theme on some of the screenshots below.

Here's a list of new members who are lucky enough to make it onto the team:

  • 'EAR' (sound artist from the Extreme Audio Recording company)
  • 'Joshua Archer' (2D artist)
  • ‘Gen_Rhys_Dallows' / ‘Delante Capers' (voice artist and currently working on a mod called Expanding Fronts)
  • ‘Joseph Greve' / ‘lime517' (musician)
  • ‘Mandosis' (web design)
Now onto the stuff you've all been waiting to see!
3D modeller Sharky has made more progress on the Snowspeeder and we have a new texture for it. He's also working on the interior and we're all looking forward to seeing it!

3D modeller and coder Ande has been busy making a kick-ass Rebel pilot:

3D modeller Deforges has made the most iconic turret in the whole of Star Wars, the cylinder turret! The texture suits the model really well don't you think?

3D modeller and environmental artist Lephenix has also made an EG6 droid:

He has also been working on Palpatine's Office. Here's a very W.I.P screenshot:

Although we don't have anything to show right now, sound artist Calum (tunednoise) has recorded a huge amount of voice overs (>1gb!) and we will be sorting through them soon! Keep an eye (or rather an ear) out for this.

Finally, before I sign off, our main animator Terach has encourntered a rather nasty bug in CryEngine 3. If you know how to solve it or know anyone who might be able to help, please make a post on the forum: Thank you!

Well, that's all for now folks, we hope this update was worth the wait.

Stay tuned for a dev diary this month...

May the force be with you!

PS: We are still looking mostly for talented environment artists! If you feel you're up to the challenge and could do with a bit of artwork to bolster your portfolio shoot us a mail! or a PM directly to the Mod/Dev Team!

Also guys, we forgot to mention that we are also after (talented) animators. That said anyone who wants to help out with 2D, 3D, environment, coding, whatever it is you should feel free to apply! Thanks for checking out the game as always!

If they do I don't see why the dev's don't just make it anyway and simply release it "under the radar" as it were.

It's not moral or fair for them to try and stop something that's released for free anyway.

Has you seen what's happening to MERP? Although comparing WB to Disney is like comparing Darth Bane to Revan.

I don't think Disney will C&D this game. There are countless Star Wars mods (for non-Star Wars games, like Mount & Blade's Star Wars: Conquest module and the First Strike conversion for Battlefield 2142) and a few fan-made games. If they wanted to, they would of have done it by now (yes, I am aware that one or two pre-Disney mods got C&Ded, but, those are exceptions) Now, if Disney starts C&Ding or Battlefront 3 is announced, then I would start worrying.

Not sure if I'll be able to animate for you guys. If you're looking for a unit foley artist, however, I'd be happy to oblige.

I could try helping. I'm not too skilled and I don't have too much time but I can try making 3D models.

Aralvar Mar 4 2013 says:

I'd like to help with the project, though all I can do is 3D modeling. Don't know how to do UV mapping and add textures though, just the models themselves.

That said, I hope you guys have at least a somewhat talented team of developers. I can't wait for this game!

Hello rocknroll237! Finally did the posting on our website about the February update. I'm sorry for the delay, we were facing a lot of problems and I ended up getting some time working on a new design for our website, "The Holonet":

Here's the post that is being shared by our Facebook page too:

Grateful to notify us by the Forum and may the Force be with you!
