It's that wonderful time of year once again gamers, where E3 is nearly upon us and game studios are poised to announce new projects and give more details on ones we're looking forward to. The lead-up can be hard, as most studios clamp down on the information before the show, but EA announced that gamers can expect six new game announcements at E3, plus more information on Star Wars: Battlefront!
It’s kind of hard to believe it fellow gamers and cinephiles, but we’re already in the month of May; the official start of the jam-packed Summer Movie Season. Last month we broke it all down with our Preview Guides, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have awesome things in store this month here at Cinelinx!
Darth Maul has long been a favorite character of Star Wars fans, and his return in Star Wars The Clone Wars made for one of the better storylines in that series. As such, it's suprising that he never really got a game all to himself, despite having grown in popularity through the show and comics. Now it's been revealed that a Darth Maul focused game (incorporating stealth and more violent tactics) was in the works before being cancelled in 2011. While we'll never get to play the game, you can now see what could have been via a quick gameplay video and concept art. Come check it out, but be prepared to be real sad...

One of the things I've oft lamented (and spoken of frequently) is the loss of the Rogue Squadron game franchise. The dogfighting/flight sim genre is perfectly suited for the space combat aspects of the Star Wars universe, yet it's been a long time since someone has tapped into that for gaming purposes (unless you count the new addition to The Old Republic). It seems that Disney is returning to that well, as they've announced registrations have started on the beta for Star Wars Attack Squadrons.

Yesterday, Kotaku broke the scoop about how Star Wars: First Assault (a downloadble shooting game) was supposed to be a predecessor to Battlefront 3, which fans have wanted for a very long time. First Assault was supposed to be out sometime this Spring but the recent Disney acquisition has put all games on hold. Now some leaked screenshots from Assault have come out, and unless your heart can take it, maybe you shouldn't look...
