Valve will be the official distributor for Galaxy in Turmoil, the fan-made Battlefront 3 remake.
Star Wars: Battlefront 3 (no, not the new one) was the Battlefront game that never was. Developed as a sequel to 2005's Batlefront II, it was reportedly canceled "inches away from the finish line". The folks over at Frontwire Studios have been hard at work remaking the cancelled game, and now it's finally been approved for Steam release.
"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," wrote Frontwire president Tony Romanelli in a press release.
For those of you worried about the house of mouse slapping down a cease and desist, "I'll be honest - I've had mild concerns myself from time to time," said Romanelli, "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."
