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.

Greetings Troopers! With the release of BF2142 1.51 and the added functionality of diskless play we have seen an influx of brand new players to the mod, the promise of a BF2142 release on Steam could lead to a further resurgence of popularity of this game, and in turn additional new players that may be interested in First Strike. It is sure an interesting time, with plenty of potential as far as the mod is concerned with many people trying out and being very impressed with the quality of the mod

One issue however still remains. When are people on? New players main problem is finding a time when other people are playing so that they can enjoy a well populated game of First Strike.

With that in mind we've thrown up this post to remind you and encourage all First Strike players to get on-line this weekend (March 12th & 13th) at 20:00 GMT (this converts to 21:00 CET, 15:00 EST, 12:00 PST) for the Community Games held on Saturdays & Sundays at this time, this coming weekend, and all weekends to come. Lets get some good numbers on this weekend and show what this mod is capable of to new players, we'll be regularly reminding people of this event so new players can easily find a time to meet players of First Strike on-line.

[UPDATE:]

This event will take place on the =SBB= server. The First Strike Dev Team would like to thank the SBB clan for their support in choosing to host the Community Games this weekend, if you'd like to learn more about this clan head over to their website www.sbb-clan.de for more information.

See you out there troopers.

I'm so excited man, you all know this is the reason why PR's popularity went through the roof (cause of the patch) so I'm really happy to see First Strike take off! Hopefully EA will learn about how successful the disk-less patches make these games! (no-cd battlefield 1942 anyone? =D)

Would be nice, but I'm afraid it is not looking good as far as mod tools and the Frostbite Engine are concerned.
