First Strike is a Star Wars total conversion modification for Battlefield 2142. The goal of First Strike is to totally immerse the players into the amazing universe of Star Wars by presenting the most accurate representations of famous Star Wars locales, weapons, and characters, and combining them with exciting, fast paced gameplay and features new to the Battlefield scene. Within this mod you'll find yourself as a soldier of the Galactic Empire or as a freedom fighter for the Rebel Alliance. You'll fight across lovingly detailed recreations of various Star Wars locations with a wide array of weapons and vehicles.

With the Rebel Alliance growing stronger every day and the Empire spread thin as it is, it's no longer a battle of technological might, but simply a matter of who strikes first...

Features include:

  • Famous Star Wars battles
  • An extremely authentic atmosphere
  • Dozens of Star Wars weapons, vehicles, and soldiers
  • Space battles!
  • Online multiplayer for up to 64 people
  • Co-op & Singleplayer Bot support on a growing number of maps
  • Persistent stat tracking

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: EA Master Server Finally Down

2 comments by TALON_UK on Jul 18th, 2014


Well we have now come to the end of an era. The EA Master Server has finally gone down, and with that the login service which records your rank, and keeps track of your unlocks for your customisable kits. Without being able to log in to the server you are unable to play the game on-line, even the local or singleplayer version of our mod will not run due to this issue. However singleplayer is available if you disconnect from the internet.

We are looking at ways to get around this. Some of our fellow Battlefield mods have already fielded solutions to the problem of the server going down which allow their games to be played, and we'll be looking at possible solutions too. We are currently working with GameRanger, a facility which bypasses the need to log on to the Master Server to play the game. They already support many Battlefield games including BF2142, and it may very well be possible that you'll be able to play First Strike via this system. As yet no solution appears to be available for the lack of kit customisation options. However, the way First Strike deals with kits means that only the kit primary weapon is effected, all other gadgets are still available, which is a plus we have over BF2142 itself which finds its kit options severely hampered by the lack of the customisation functionality. Still hopefully this will also be restored soon so both BF2142 and First Strike can become fully functional again.

As of now First Strike is off-line only with no multiplayer options available at this time. But rest assured we'll keep you informed of developments as they happen, and we hope to be back up and running again soon.

Until then

See you on the Battlefield Troopers!

I found'em on Gamefront. Every one of them crashed. (loaded up but crashed as i pressed deploy) One of them wouldn't even extract lol

I would've even tried if they hadn't been made for a previous version of First Strike but it was worth a shot.

Yeah, I don't think they're compatible since it got integrated into the official mod properly. Most of the maps from that are now in the mod as the singleplayer portion, plus the AI support is much improved since the SP Minimod. If you have First Strike 1.6 you should be able to play singleplayer, you just have to do it off-line due to issues with the EA Master Server closing down, as mentioned in the latest news update.

You'd have to ask Dnamro about that, but I think that disappeared when it officially became part of the mod proper as co-op/singleplayer support. Though I think it might still be available somewhere as there were a few maps that we didn't feel were appropriate to officially add to the mod.

Gameranger added BF 2142 to the list of games. Do people plan on playing First Strike there?

I think he's just looking to the future when the server eventually does go down.

It is possible that First Strike will be played under Gameranger, will just have to see.

New patch featuring Dathomir Prison Break is now out, just had some issues getting the public version ready to go out, but all is good now. Simply fire up First Strike and allow the Auto-updater to update your mod to the new patch.

See you out there on the Rebel Defiance server.
