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'm really excited to see this game be released, do you have any plans to bring this over to the steam free games list? But in other cases, I'm really excited to see the clone wars era also be developed. And as long as there are phase 2 arc troopers, you've got me hooked!

I don't think we can bring it to Steam due to copyright issues. A lot of people ask for the Clone Wars, but it's something we're thinking of much further down the line.

This game/mod... i LOVE it, even though i'm not a big star wars fan myself (i don't hate it either) this game looks very promising.
Keep up the good work!

now lets hope it can compete with star wars battlefront (being a free game is already a huge benefit ;) )

Thanks! Well, we try and do things differently to DICE to keep our game fresh and original while listening to what fans want. And this is a game, not a mod (it used to be a mod many moons ago!)

So in order to be able to play this game, would I have to buy the Unreal Engine 4 on Steam? or do I just download it when it comes out?

Correct, we will have the game bundled together, no need to buy anything! (Some Installation required. . .)

We definitely want to make a clone wars era, but customizable troops may or may not happen. Loadouts perhaps, but as to the actual troops, that is less likely. Also, glad you like the page!
