    So for us gamers here, I'm sure we have heard that EA's flagship FPS developer DICE is making Star Wars Battlefront 3. This is, in my opinion, fantastic news, because DICE, the creators of the Battlefield series are the best when it comes to making shooters that give players the ability to work in close-knit squads, drive a wide array of vehicles, pilot multiple planes, and even take part in naval battles on maps that are big enough to handle all of this action while still making sure players are always in the action (long sentence).
    DICE has promised that this is not just going to be Battlefield 3(4) clone with a Star Wars skin on top (which would still be worth my $60) but it's own full on game complete with the new Frostbite 3 engine. So who is excited to see the return of the Battlefront franchise and what new additions do we think we'll see this time around?

    Just imagining star wars battlefront with the frostbite engine is amazing. Saw the trailer while i was at work and really showed everyone just how much of a star wars nut I am. It's so exciting!!!

    I hope they take the time to make it right. Lots of Lucasarts games were rushed and unpolished.

    Well seeing as how Lucas Arts is not a thing anymore, and it's in the hands of DICE who I don't believe have a history of rushing their games, I think it is going to be amazing.

    BF1&2 was one of the first games my son and I played consistently together. We can't wait to try out BF3

    Those were fantastic games, I played them when I was younger and they gave endless hours of fun with my friends. X-wings and Republic troopers all day for me.

    I have to say I'm looking forward to it, should be all kinds of fun.

    Here is the real question, what system is everyone going to be playing on?

    Count me in! I'm on PS3 now and looking forward to upgrading... The improvements on PS4 look quite worthwhile.

    There are likely other console players here. I would but I've yet to put a PC partition on my Mac as I can't bring myself to do so.

    I'll probably get PS3 version as well if some can't upgrade to PS4 right away. If we can get a few people we can create our own clan [face_dancing] {NR}Bobafett, {NR}Vaderules etc...

    I love the previous Battlefront games, and I am glad that Battlefront 3 is officially in the works (they sure did take their time :))

    I hope that the battle maps are even grander in scale than the first two Battlefront games. I've never played the other Battlefront game(s) on the smaller ports, such as the PSP, but I read somewhere that Battlefront: Renegade Squadron, let you customize your own character. Hopefully, this will feature primarily into Battlefront 3 as well.

    I also liked two features from Battlefront 1 that weren't in the sequel, which were the abilities to crawl, and get knocked down by an explosion, with the possibility of being able to get back up. It'd be great if little details like that were incorporated once again into the series via Battlefront 3.

    I will say taking the customization from Renegade Squadron would make a fantastic aspect since that was one of the most enjoyable aspects of that game.

    In the other games like the PSP games, you were able to customize the characters just a little bit as well as go from Ground to Space in a fighter and vise-versa if you took a fighter/escape pod down the the planet. We can see in these videos here that they were working on that as well for the consoles for the BF3 they were making:

    You can also see that it was definitely grander in scale too, that Corusant siege map looks amazing!

    I hope you guys are patient because it won't come out until 2015, same year as the movie.
