Cancelled Star Wars Battlefront 4 flipped Return of the Jedi's final lightsaber battle

Last month, we showcased a gallery of artwork dug up from the ashes of Free Radical Design's cancelled Star Wars Battlefront 4.

The game was already in the planning stages when Free Radical's far more complete Battlefront 3 project was also shut down back in 2006. It exists now only in the form of concept art and memory.

But the past few weeks have seen far more Battlefront 4 material come to light, thanks to fans from The Vault Project and anonymous staff who worked on the game more than a decade ago. Together, an enormous collaborative Google Document has been created - showcasing the largest collection of Battlefront 3 and 4 information I've seen, after years of writing about various leaks.

This fresh gallery of Star Wars art offers a glimpse at what might have been - had British developer Free Radical Design got to make its Star Wars Battlefront 4.

Gameplay of canned Star Wars Battlefront 3 shows impressive ground-to-space tech

Free Radical Design's cancelled Star Wars Battlefront 3 has been shown off again in newly-leaked footage. It's our best look yet at what might have been.

The TimeSplitters and Second Sight studio had been developing the game for two years when LucasArts pulled the project back in 2006, a decision which caused the studio's fall into administration.

Free Radical's impressive ground-to-space technology is shown off in detail, as the player is seen taking off and flying around huge areas set on Hoth and Coruscant, then off into space to battle TIE Fighters and Star Destroyers.

New Star Wars game to be announced?

New Star Wars game to be announced?

Award ceremony teaser would suggest so.

A new Star Wars game looks set to be announced at this year's Video Game Awards ceremony.

That's one way of looking at a new Spike TV teaser video, anyway. Over footage of previous SW games a voice says, "You've seen every film over 200 times, you know the Skywalkers better than your own family, you have a stronger knowledge of the Force than Yoda himself - but one thing you don't know is what's next. Find out at the 2009 Video Game Awards."

Said Awards are being held on 12th December so expect more news then. Will it be a sequel? A brand new franchise? Or just another class or something for Star Wars: The Old Republic? Clouded, the future is etc.
