Cancelled Star Wars Game Is Now Playable

The Star Wars franchise has given us many memorable games in the past, some that will live on in the hearts of fans for years to come. However, it is also synonymous with having games cancelled before they are ever released to the public. Fans are left with their dreams crushed and only their thoughts about what could have been. One game that was announced and cancelled to the dismay of fans was titled Star Wars: First Assault. It was slated to be a Call of Duty style, first person shooter game that never made it to store shelves. Well thanks to the magic of technology and some savvy  geeks it has now been leaked online and you can actually play the unfinished game.

Development for Star Wars: First Assault was killed back in 2012 when Disney bought the rights to the entire Star Wars franchise and closed down Lucas Arts not too long after the acquisition. Then in 2015 a video was released online showing a tech demo of the game. There wasn’t much to it really, just a simple multiplayer map, and some decent looking weapons. However, it was enough to get fans wondering about what they had possibly missed out on. Lucky for us, or maybe not so lucky depending on how you look at it, we later got Star Wars: Battlefront from EA and Dice. In my opinion Battlefront is a decent addition to the library of Star Wars games but if you’re still interested in First Assault you can download what is left of the game.

As always there is a catch to this so be aware. According to Now Loading, apparently you can only download the game for the Xbox 360 and your system has to be modded.  Of course Microsoft looks down on things like that and modding your system will void your warranty but most likely your 360 warranty is long past its usability date so it’s really up to you what you want to do with it. If you are wanting to download the Star Wars: First Assault tech beta then just click here. Again download at your own risk but if you get it to work let us know what you think of it Nerd Nation.

Also, if you are not able to download the First Assault tech beta or you just plain don’t want to, maybe give a watch to the 2015 video below that shows what was available at the time. As always we want to know what you think about this Nerd Nation. Do you think Star Wars: First Assault would have been a better game than Star Wars: Battlefront or are you glad that this game never saw the light of day?
