Around 30 minutes of gameplay footage for TimeSplitters developer Free Radical Design's scrapped Star Wars: Battlefront III has emerged, giving gamers a glimpse at a game they'll likely never play.

A pair of 15-minute gameplay videos (via Eurogamer) provide a look at how the game played in its pre-alpha state. The videos show off all manner of environments, vehicles, and playable characters.

These were to include well-known Star Wars characters such as Mace Windu, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalker, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Padme, among others.

Despite numerous and detailed attestments to its existence and development, LucasArts never confirmed that Battlefront III was in fact in production. The game has long been the subject of much rumor, speculation, and head-butting.

Its developer, Free Radical Design, was later folded into Crytek UK.

Though we may never get to play Battlefront III, Swedish Battlefield developer DICE is currently working on a brand new Star Wars: Battlefront game for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. We haven't seen much of the game yet, but DICE plans to reveal more about it in spring 2015.
