Star Wars: Battlefront III is a first/third person shooter game based on the Star Wars series. It is the sequel to Star Wars: Battlefront II. The player controls troopers on the ground, air, and sea. Players also can control heroes and villains from the series.


Gameplay is similar to Battlefront II, as troopers run across the battlefield and shoot at enemy troops. The goal of the battle is to kill all the enemy troops. Troop numbers can be adjusted by the player before the battle. Ships are positioned on the battlefield and troops can board them and shoot from the sky or travel to space. In space, the goal is to bring down the enemy flagship. This is achieved by shooting at key points on the flagship or boarding it to sabotage it. By bringing down the flagship, 50 enemy troops are killed. Instead of one campaign, there are four different campaigns.

But there can only be three Juggernauts. If the first/second/third Juggernaut is then killed by another player, the player becomes the first/second/third Juggernaut. This repeats for five minutes.

  • Players choose an era and side. Their side is sent to the strange world of Bailihus to investigate a mystical building. When entered, the door locks behind them. The two sides meet, but before war starts, a native creature attacks, which is killed. The teams form together to take on the new threat.
  • With each Round, enemies become stronger and more smart. If a soldier is killed, they must wait to respawn in the next Round. If everyone is killed in one Round, they begin back at Round 1 again. There are 202 Rounds total, with 202 being where players roam Bailihus to escape. At the ending, the player is running from creatures but trips, and the camera begins to static, as if the player was watching a film made by the player's character. A soldier from the other team helps the player up as they run towards a Bailihusian starship. The camera then completly statics, leaving the ending unknown.
