Star Wars Battlefront E3 Trailer

I’m not a huge video gamer, but the Star Wars Battlefront E3 trailer has me excited for the future of the Star Wars universe in the interactive space. The trailer is a behind the scenes look at how EA’s Dice Studio is working hard to recapture the magic of the original Star Wars trilogy of films, going back to the Lucas archives to capture new details from the models and props. They also revisited some of the original filming locations to hopefully recapture the feeling of the spaces. The trailer is cleverly edited to play to our emotions and our nostalgia for the original films (yes, it worked) but  the Star Wars Battlefront E3 Trailer doesn’t show a whole lot in terms of real gameplay, a couple little snippets of early in-engine footage. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump.
