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.

Anyone else remember the moments in bf2 where you are a jet trooper or dark trooper flying majestically until a good sniper picks you off mid-air? Sometimes that reminded me of the occasional AI. Sorry for not saying anything yesterday, the whole family was gathered watching the star wars movies! May the 4th be with you all!

I do but I typically used the mods that made the jet troopers be the snipers, those were fun.

Have you ever tried the BFX mod? The Dark trooper has a fully auto shotgun that is fun to run with, and the wookie has a ridiculously strong rocket launcher. Very polished mod that is one of my favorites, with conversion and dark times mod both not far behind. Good times, good times. . .

In the BFP mod, they give the wookies a automatic grenade launcher.

There was a mod I found I don't remember were but it added a map called utter insanity it was the cloud city map with overpowered units, my favorite of them was the jet trooper he had a rocket launcher that fired 10-20 rockets at once (I couldn't tell how many) and it was fully automatic with no reload required when that was firing nothing was left except the driodika. Funnest mod I ever played.

I have recently played that mod on Rhen Var, really fun. One of the classes is a flying gungan that shoots OP machine gun rockets.

That would be a very long term goal but as we want development to be shared by the community once a stable release has been achieved (and the vehicle code for UE4 is well established) we'd say yes.

I know they're so epic (waay better than the BFII ones)!!! I'm guessing that that "pew-pew" laser sound will be changed though?
Epic-epic-epic work Battlecry team!

DICE's battlefront heartbreakingly lacks galactic conquest which was y'know the best part of battlefront. So I was wondering would it ever be possible to do something like 2 player offline galactic conquest with bots in unreal engine (long term of course), I'd never expect anyone to be able to put something like that together quickly but would it be even possible in the first place?

Yes it is possible and they said they hoped to do that.

Could you post a link to where the Battlecry devs said they would make a Galactic Conquest like mode?

It was said in a reply to a question about single player story mode that they hoped to add a galactic conquest.

I actually don't know but knowing the ambition in this project, I would say it will come in time.
