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!

I'm looking forward to see what you guys and gals will come up with. :-)

Since you've merged now, are you considering renaming BattleCry? Maybe something like "Star Wars: BattleCry - The First Strike"? :-)

Whilst I generally think the prospect of renaming would be pointless that really does sound epic.

Seeing as how I lack faith in EA/DICE to put out the Battlefront we've all been waiting for (battlefield 4/Hardline) this seems like it will fill the gap quite nicely (and properly).

Battlefield Hardline is not made by DICE, it's made by Visceral Games'

If i would send one of you my system specs, could you already tell me if i could run the game. Or is that not possible at this stage?

You can double check the specs of UE4 though and see if you can run the editor okay. That'll give you the rough guidelines.

We do not yet know what the final system requirements will be, sorry.
