Galaxy In Turmoil is being described as the next instalment in the Battlefront series as it is based on on the cancelled Battlefront III project by Free Radical. The game’s about page explains it is:
Developed on the ever-popular Unreal Engine 4 by Epic Games, Galaxy in Turmoil boasts massive 32v32 player maps with full ground to space battles and an all new never before seen competitive mode.
Today in an announcement Frontwire announced that Valve have agreed to distribute Galaxy In Turmoil on Steam for free.
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.
In the announcement Tony Romanelli, President of Frontwire Studios, addressed people’s worries of a Ceast and Desist from Disney.
People have been expressed their concern as of late, saying they expect us to get a Cease & Desist from Disney. I’ll be honest – I’ve had mild concerns myself from time to time. 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.
The game uses assets that don’t belong to Frontwire Studios and for this reason a lot of people worried that the project may be shut down when news broke of the project. It looks though as if this deal with Valve with help Frontwire to make a name for themselves, and it seems fans will finally get the old-school Battlefront they have been dreaming of.
I personally am excited to see what this game can offer, but it certainly seems to be much similar to the Battlefront fans were expecting from the recent reboot. Are you going to check out Galaxy In Turmoil? And what did you think of Battlefront? Let us know in the comments below!
