The Star Wars: Battlefront series is a series of games published by LucasArts. They feature combat modes seen in few games, and as the series develops more customizable options become available. The series is a first-third person shooter, and has plots and battle relating to the films it promotes.

The first game, Star Wars: Battlefront, was released in 2004 and in late 2004, LucasArts released the Star Wars Battlefront BFBuilder, an unsupported mod that allowed fans to create new battlefields for Battlefront I. A sequel, Star Wars: Battlefront II, was released on November 1, 2005 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable.

A second sequel, Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron was released in October 2007.

A third sequel, Star Wars: Battlefront III, is said to be in development for the Xbox 360 and PC by the developer Free Radical. It will be produced by DICE, who also created the Battlefield series. It will actually be called Star Wars: Battlefront , without any numerical coding. Also, the original installments in the series were removed from the Star Wars website and now only the new game is there. It will be released in December to coincide with the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Star Wars: Battlefront II is a first-person shooter/third-person shooter (interchangeable) video game developed by Pandemic Studios and LucasArts, and released in North America on November 1, 2005, for Microsoft Windows, Xbox, PlayStation Portable, and the PlayStation 2. It is the second game of the highly successful Star Wars: Battlefront Series. There are several differences between Battlefront II and the original Star Wars: Battlefront, such as playable Jedi characters, new unit classes, space battles, and story campaigns, as well as Episode III content. The release date coincided with the release of Revenge of the Sith on DVD.

Battlefront II expands upon the original game's single-player experience with mission-based objectives drawn from Star Wars Episodes I through VI. It is a story-based campaign which revolves around the 501st Legion as the unit evolves from the Old Republic Clone Troopers to Imperial stormtroopers. The storyline spans more than 16 new locations, many from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, including volcanic Mustafar and the space battle above Coruscant. Many maps that came from the original Battlefront were edited and improved, like the Naboo battlefield. Also included are battles from the original trilogy, such as fights aboard the Tantive IV, Princess Leia's blockade runner, shown immediately at the beginning of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

The game is now an Xbox Platinum Hits game, a Sony Greatest Hits game, an Xbox Classic and a PlayStation Platinum game.

Star Wars: Battlefront IIIEdit

A third Battlefront game may be in development. Developer Free Radical has neither confirmed nor denied that they are working on a Battlefront game. They have stated that they are developing a new Star Wars game for LucasArts. So far, it has only been announced for the 7th Gen console Xbox 360, but speculation that it will come out on other current- and next-generation consoles has arisen.

In late 2008, Free Radical went into administration, and LucasArts revoked the contract. Leaked footage of Battlefront III appeared on the internet for a short while, as did renders from the game. Not long after, Pandemic Studios, original creators of the series, posted a short brief for "Project X" on their site. Fans believed this to be Battlefront III, but a spokesperson has since rebuked the claim.

Star Wars BattlefrontEdit

In 2013 at E3 Electronic Arts announced the game Star Wars Battlefront.[1]
