In a crazy and quite honestly risky move, a group of developers called Front Wire are bringing back the cancelled Star Wars Battlefront 3 as a free game called Galaxy in Turmoil. Making things even stranger is the fact Valve themselves will allow Front Wire to feature the game on their Steam store.
It is with great pleasure that as of today I am able to officially announce that Frontwire Studios has officially signed a distribution deal with Steam/Valve for the game Galaxy in Turmoil. After ongoing discussion between Valve Representatives and myself, Valve/Steam has agreed to ship Galaxy in Turmoil to it’s millions of users for FREE.
Of course the big question will Disney interfere in the matter?
On a final note; People have been expressed their concern as of late, saying they expect us to get a Cease & Desist from Disney. I’ll be honest – I’ve had mild concerns myself from time to time. However Valve clearly lacks that same concern. By agreeing to publish Galaxy in Turmoil, Valve is assisting us in growing and ensuring the longevity of the Galaxy in Turmoil project and community as a whole.
The game isn’t live yet but is expected to launch real soon. Interested in seeing how long this lasts and hopefully Disney would turn a blind eye. Ah, who am I kidding. This game is dead on arrival.
