Hello Star Wars: Battlecry fans (and the First Strike fans who are also reading this),

Today we have a big bit of news for you folks - the First Strike team is merging with the Star Wars: Battlecry team!
As Chad (new project leader of First Strike explains), 'When the First Strike team looked into switching to the Unreal 4 game engine, it just made sense to look into combining forces instead of starting completely over on a new engine. Both teams have a desire to develop a PC focused Star Wars game that simulates the the role of a trooper fighting for the Rebel or Imperial forces in large scale combined arms battles.' 
 When developing a game for a galaxy far, far away, almost everything has to be created from scratch. One of the things we're exploring at the moment is importing First Strike's large collection of models into the Unreal engine. If assets require improvements or modifications, this can be done but it will hopefully mean things will get done quicker and we can produce the free stand alone Star Wars game fans have been wanting all along. 

On top of that, the fact that we are merging with a very experienced and skilled team is exciting and we look forward to the future! 

We will keep you updated if anything else changes about the game/team.

Thank you for your support and patience,

The Star Wars: Battlecry team (and the newly merged First Strike members!) 

Btw, here's the awesome pic team member Jo Greve made for us to celebrate the merge!

Hello, I was wondering if the Probe droid will be a vehicle, or an equipment?

As for the AT-ST, it is simply the greatest looking one I have ever seen in a game! As for its animation it looks a little stiff to me. Perhaps the thin piece of metal connecting the rest of the leg to the chassis should have a wider arc of motion? That along with a longer stride may help to keep the AT-ST's head more leveled. I would like to hear others opinions though.

Even at this early stage I can tell that this game is shaping up to be the greatest Star Wars game in some time! I would like to thank the development team once again for their time and effort; I cannot wait to see a fully animated AT-AT in all of its high-polygon CryENGINE glory!

I agree with the AT-ST part. It's a little too stiff looking at the moment. Perhaps more bop or give would make it look more natural. Otherwise this all looks fantastic.

Found just out about this yesterday and wondered if this game will be like a simulation, so not like a casual shooter with boring running and gunning mechanics :) I would look forward to some realistic gameplay that really gives you the feeling of being a part of the Galactic Civil War. Greetings

This game is going to be very similar to the Star Wars: Battlefront series.

Can we add lightsabers? Probably if we get that far. Can we add signature characters like Vader and Luke? Most likely not due to copyrights.
