Star Wars: Battlefront appears to be some way from release after publisher EA opened its E3 press conference with a very early look at the game.

A promo video said that the team went back to where it all began and visited the original movie locations in order to help create the game.

Early in-game assets and models were shown to be hugely impressive, but for now there's very little additional info.

Details are promised in spring 2015, suggesting the game's release date may be set for autumn/winter 2015 or beyond.
