Episode VII Stormtrooper in EA Battlefront Files?

Here’s a rumor (or possible hoax) for you regarding Star Wars Battlefront. Someone claims to have found game files that indicate there might be First Order Stormtroopers in the game. He created a video for it showing these models/files.

AngryEchidna says, “In the workshop for SFM i noticed a file that had models from Starwars Battlefront (The third main one) and among the files uploaded is a highly detailed New Order Stormtrooper. I put some of the other models from Battlefront in the video so you can compare the level of detail for yourself.”

So what do you think?

People are skeptical, and rightly so. So far, no one else has been able to replicate it so it’s really looking like it might just be a hoax. When you add in the fact that the video came out just after the game was launched, there’s a very good chance someone was just trying to get some play from the popularity of the game’s release.

It does look legit, but again, that doesn’t make it true. Most likely this is a fake from a different game that had it’s poly count increased. It’s a good fake, made to look like Battlefront, but most likely a fake, nonetheless.

That said, fans of the game are more than anxious to see what all the DLC will contain so it’s no surprise that people would jump on this quickly. Without a close inspection, it could see real and with the excitement of the game and the possibility of this hoax being real, it’s easy to see how it could spread like wildfire.

What do you think we might see in final DLCs?
