Hello Star Wars: Battlecry fans and Happy Star Wars day!

It’s been exactly one year from our announcement that we are moving to the epic Unreal Engine 4. A lot has changed since you first started witnessing our progress and watching everything slowly take shape.

Because it’s May the 4th as you already know, we think that this is a great moment to celebrate and reward your great support over the years with something special. We’ve put a lot of work on this and hopefully you will like it.

It’s time for our first gameplay video showing what we’ve been up to in Unreal Engine 4. Keep in mind that this is in a heavy WIP stage and a lot of things are missing. Everything you see is subject to change. So take this more as a proof-of-concept, the rest will be filled, polished and tweaked as we continue to make progress.

Now a few screenshots taken during our gameplay and the video itself.

Enjoy and may the Tr4iler be with you.

This game is completely free and at this time we don't have a date set for the alpha/beta.

To dive further, we actually would likely face legal repercussions from the monopoly mouse himself if we made this for monetary gain. Free we can get away with, but Disney is not known for playing nice with potential profits. The Alpha release is uncertain on accounts of progress being made. The first impression will be critical for us as Schlechtwetterfront has mentioned. All I can really say for sure is when it is ready you will know. Merry Christmas!!

Currently, if I am not mistaken, it is practically multiplayer exclusive.

I know you guys have been working super hard on this and don't wan't to rush it but, it would be cool if we could get some kind of tiny little demo for the holidays if possible. I really don't wan't this to be rushed because I wan't it to be as good as it can for the alpha release whenever that may be. Thank you guys so much for all of your hardwork and I hope this doesn't get cancled like almost every big fan project does because of time and resources. One more time, thank you guys for all the work you have put into this and happy holidays!

The first impression is very important so we want to make sure it's up to par with how we want it to feel.

When the Alpha is released you should do another reddit AMA. It'd be great for publicity!

That's not a bad idea actually, we could set one of those up at some point!

Do you know when you will have the first playable version ready for the public? I'm just wondering since your original release date was back in 2013. Now it seems that we won't get it until mid 2015.

Most projects like this take a lot of time (we have had issues with engines, documentation and other things as Mandosis says) but we'd rather have delays and be a bit late and deliver something awesome that can easily be improved upon, than rush into anything.

Besides, we want this game to be built up by a community who shape it and make it what it is over a long period of time - other games (e.g. CoD) that have a smaller development time are often replaced shortly afterwards and left alone (albeit with a few DLC releases). We're providing an open platform through UE4 which should make the game more enjoyable and allow people to create custom content and have a say in how things should be run.

That said, there is always the possibility that you can visit the other end of the spectrum where you take far too long to release a game and it becomes vapourware. At the stage we're at at the moment and with the awesome progress we've made, this is pretty unlikely!

We had quite a few issues with CryENGINE 3 that was limiting what we could do such as the missing documentation. Because of that we switched to Unreal Engine 4. We started fresh and so far we have more done in a few months than we had done during our entire time with CE3. It will take a bit longer to get something playable out but it will be worth it in the end.
