More leaked Star Wars: First Assault images emerge
Three new screenshots from rumored downloadable multiplayer shooter surface showing Cloud City and Tatooine.
Kotaku has obtained a batch of new screenshots from the rumored Star Wars: First Assault. The three new images show off locations like Cloud City and Tatooine, with squads of stormtroopers and rebels battling each other.
A source told Kotaku yesterday that Star Wars: First Assault is a downloadable multiplayer shooter that was originally pegged to be released this spring, but is now in limbo following Disney's high-profile acquisition of the Star Wars franchise last year.
LucasArts reportedly suspended all hiring and game announcements when it originally learned of Disney's intention to buy the Star Wars brand.
First Assault is also reportedly "step zero" to Star Wars: Battlefront III, a test of sorts for Star Wars shooter games that run on the Unreal Engine. If the game is successful, it could lead to the release of the long-in-development--and heavily debated--Battlefront III.
