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.

You should consider doing a colab with this guy: Fractalsponge.net

He's done a lot of detailed albeit unique star wars designs. Sometimes that unique variety of assets in a game can really make a difference.

Wow, he looks really good! The Battlecry Team should consider getting in touch with him, as he would probably wan't to join so that more people could experience his amazing art in games.

Damn this looks amazing, nice to see that we have a mod similar to Battlefront being made by/for the community. Wish I could assist, but I'm afraid I don't know the Unreal Engine too well. I have a giant folder of Star Wars sounds if that would even help the slightest. Sounds from Republic Commando, and other sources that are Star Wars based.

We are trying to have assets that are made by us and not taken directly from somewhere else like past games or movies but thank you anyways.

TOO LAZY TO READ? DON'T WORRY THESE SCREENSHOTS WILL EXPLAIN MY COMPLAINT: Imgur.com

Something has being bothering me about the gameplay in the trailer and I've not being able to put my finger on it.. until now!

Turns out it was the third person camera position, it seems you've succumbed to the bizarre practise of having view shifted to the right so you character is on the left. This might be an art style of whatever but I personally would much prefer Battlefront 2 style camera positioning where the character is centred.

What wasn't mentioned is that we were following the swbf3 style that was supposed to be and can be seen bellow. It could also be modified so it limits to some degree people from peeking around the corners.

Of course like Rocknroll said we could just add classic style and swbf3 style to choose from.

Might be a good idea to make multiple selectable camera options in the menu. That way we can cater to everyone's tastes.

That certainty sounds like a sensible route to go down.

Also as I've got your attention might I ask if you have any idea what specs will be needed for 4k at 60fps, I only ask because I can't help but be slightly worried that the reason the video is in low resolution is that it needs high specs for higher res.

They have said they don't know the specs yet, it also hasn't been optimized yet.
