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.
In swift retaliation to their loss of a sector of Outer Rim space to the Rebel Alliance last week, the Empire came back strong. Fearing the Emperor's displeasure is a powerful incentive. Battles were lost in space above Taloraan, but the Imperial garrison on Rhen Var held fast against attacks from multiple fronts. The ice world was held and the Empire was victorious. With a sector secured in the Emperor's name.
Now the game is afoot with equal sectors held by both factions, and only one target on the map remaining. So next week will see the final battle of the campaign, and it is going to be a corker. The Death Star is moving in on the Rebel's primary stronghold, and the outcome of the Battle of Yavin shall decide the fate of the galaxy.
