Hello once again Star Wars: Battlecry fans!

Today we're posting a quick update to let you know about the great progress we've been making on Cloud City (as well as new sound effects – Richard Goulet is responsible for creating these epic sounds - concepts and new/improved 3D models).

On top of this, we want to take a minute to mention our awesome new partnership with BlackIntel, who are letting us use their servers and storage! They are a great bunch of people and we highly recommend you check them out. More info on this partnership will be released at a later date.

Regarding the First Strike merge, we now have everything set up to ensure that assets from the First Strike and Battlecry teams is all in one place. We are still in the process of evaluating First Strike assets and getting the usable ones ready for UE4. This will take some time, especially as many team members have been very busy with other commitments. Things are moving in the right direction, however!


So, without further ado, it’s time to show you guys some progress:

As you can see above, a lot of work has been done trying to get the lighting in the Carbon Freezing Chamber as atmospheric as possible (Joseph Greve, Ande and Sharky have been the main contributors to this part of the level). On top of that, a lot of effort has gone into creating high quality props and textures: this level of detail is exactly what we're aiming for. Other areas such as the residential area have also been worked on and are coming along nicely!

Above is our re-worked and improved Rebel Trooper model by Ande. We have tried to go for a very detailed look, consistent with many of our other quality 3D models. Once we have the vast amount of First Strike models imported into UE4, we can begin to take what the First Strike team has done and build upon it, ensuring we get the most out of the powerful new UE4 features.

Member Thomas Woodward started work on a fantastic Imperial Probe Droid for us a few months ago but now you can see his latest progress.


In case you're wondering where the team is at with regard to our menu concepts and HUD designs, due to several brand new features making their way into the latest version of UE4, we've decided to come up with several fresh and exciting ideas. We won't be revealing too much of this at this time as they are still conceptual (and we've shown enough WIP menu/HUD concepts for now!) but we'll keep you updated.

As always, stay tuned for more and may the force be with you!

I am largely unfamiliar with the specifics of game development but does the transition between engines mean that the work on the Hoth map has being discarded? Because the images of the echo base interior looked beyond amazing and it would be a shame for them to go to waste. But the real question is does the use of UE4 mean that seamless space to ground battles and transitions are now a more feasible feature than before or vice-versa? Also will the Cloud City map be mainly outdoor platforms or closed quarters combat in the corridors?

BTW keep up the good work!

1. No, we just need to go over all of the assets we have, adjust them and re-export them to UE. But for several reasons (as outlined in the last news) CC is a better place to spend our time on.
2. It's more feasible.
3. Both.
