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.

Me neither but it looks to linear no alternate routes or sniper areas, crowded is good on large maps not linear ones and power ups that was an awful idea for any game.

Again, they were trying to get the most cinematic and action packed scenes in there so we can't really tell what the final map will be like. It has to be somewhat large though considering all the room the fighters need to move around along with the AT-AT's. I don't really mind the power ups, they'll come in handy when fighting heroes or vehicles.

I mean every time power ups are used in games those areas become the focus really ruining the fun factor.

Just an idea I had - will you guys be adding in some sort of command system that will allow teams to be more organized? Just a thought... Though I know that there won't be THAT many player on the battlefield (at least at first :D that's right I wouldn't mind if 64v64 battles were possible), but it could be useful.
Thanks so much awesome SW:Battlecry team! :)

A chatbox seems feasible and beneficial, especially when you look at battlefront 2, though a command system would take more work. By command system, you mean a way to let other players know a primary objective, example: Take A point, correct?

Pretty much, yeah. And some sort of chain of command I suppose, so that there isn't a situation where everyone has given conflicting orders to everyone :D Effectively, limiting who can give orders to who.

Please don't add one it would be a waste of time and energy especially if it didn't work.

True - but remember, it's just an idea :D

Sorry I am just a person who likes to get straight to the point so I am not intentionaly being mean. The reason I think it's not a good idea is I am a loner when it comes to gaming and when something like this happens I don't want to lose the game for everyone because I wasn't in a team.

So on a more humorous note, how is the ragdolling going to look? Stiff like Skyrim, or loose like gmod. Just wondering.
