Star Wars First Assault was going to be a multiplayer Star Wars shooter, in development at LucasArts, to be used as a sort of testbed for the bigger Star Wars shooter that they would follow it up with- Star Wars Battlefront 3. Both games were ultimately canned, but while Battlefront 3 morphed into just Star Wars Battlefront, which is launching later this month, First Assault faded away into obscurity.
However now, Reddit user SumB1tchRaptor has pulled footage from a tech beta and posted it over on Reddit. The beta, he says, only contains the level you see in the video. Since it was a technical test, the player said he was unable to “spawn bots or add another player.”
It is a little saddening to see footage of all of these games that were under development at LucasArts- undoubtedly, Disney’s greatest sin when they took over the Star Wars brand was their gutting of LucasArts, and all of their projects.
