While we wait for the full fan-made remake of the cancelled Star Wars: Battlefront III, another team is already releasing betas for a similar project. Only theirs is about modding Battlefront II and adding in a bunch of Battlefront III stuff in over the top of it.


Star Wars Battlefront III Legacy is a mod for Battlefront II that not only imports assets from the numerous leaked/cancelled versions of Battlefront III, but also adds a bunch of new stuff to the ol’ shooter, like a new HUD and new maps.

Here’s some footage from the mod’s latest open beta:

Because the mod is still a work in progress, not everything is in or working 100%, but you can now play as every class from Clone Wars, as a number of heroes like Obi-Wan, Anakin and General Grievous and on two maps that allow for seamless travel between the ground battle and space.

The beta is open, and you can grab the files needed to play it (if you have Battlefront II) here.

Sometimes I forget how great John Williams’ music for the PT is. Probably because I watched each movie once in the theater and then never again.
