Star Wars Wednesday - Announcement Battlefront

So, with E3 leading the way, it has been another crazy week of Star Wars related announcements. Good thing, too, since I'm busy again. 

I'm looking forward to Battlefront. I'll have to go the PC route because my hands do not do well with console controllers. That's ok, though, since I enjoyed both the original Battlefront and Battlefront II. Its kind of weird to go back to the Battlefront name, but whatever. The new game looks fantastic. I used to do OK in multiplayer, but probably just that. I didn't get over to any of the Battlefront events or the booth at Celebration, since they were swamped. They've shown off two of the play types:

and Co-Op

The Old Republic announced a new expansion and a "return to KotoR style play," whatever that means. I've been away from TOR for a long time now, so I'm not up on what's been happening of late. MMOs take too much of a time commitment for me, usually.

Rebels season 2 premiere Siege of Lothal debuts this Saturday, and it looks like a can't miss event. Vader at his height.



Marvel revealed one of the variant covers for Star Wars Shattered Empire. I'm really looking forward to seeing how Greg Rucka takes on the Star Wars universe. Greg continues work in other arenas, and Lady Sabre and the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether is rolling along.

This month's preview of FFG Star Wars games hits I've also seen reports that Desperate Allies is in stores. 

Christopher Lee passed away. I'm always amazed at just how many titles he was in, and how many I saw long ago and didn't realize who it was til much later. His on screen resume is incredible, though in some ways not quite as amazing as events in his actual life. 

Miss Star Wars Celebration Anaheim? Didn't get to see everything (and really, it was impossible)? posted a fantastic gallery of events and exhibits. It's well worth checking out. The Episode VII prop room was one I couldn't get into. Great shots here (probably minor spoilers, strictly speaking).
