Just in case you were all getting a bit sick of us telling you about all the cool stuff that is going into the Battle of Hoth map, and what an awesome experience it is going to be when we finally get it out of the door. We thought you might like to hear about some of the additional projects we're working on in conjunction with our development of Hoth. So here is the first in a short series of production updates illustrating what else other than Hoth we have planned this year.
First up, we have the development of another blaster for you all to take great pleasure in fragging your opponents with. The EE-3 Blaster Carbine is an impressive weapon made infamous by the notorious Bounty Hunter Boba Fett. Within First Strike we haven't quite decided what role it will play, though it is more than likely that it will replace one of the weapons used by the Rebel faction, and that the weapon it replaces will become an additional pick up kit, similar in nature to the Bounty Hunter kit currently available on the singleplayer and co-op versions of Mos Espa. It will come equipped with a similar play style to the Imperial's MG-15 blaster which should make it a fun and formidable weapon to use.
Below are a few WIP (Work In Progress) images for you to enjoy.
Keep your sensors peeled for future articles in this series to come.
