You'll fight across lovingly detailed recreations of various Star Wars locations with a wide array of weapons and vehicles.

Greetings Troopers!

This week we thought we'd take the time to release a few more snippets of information about Jundland Wastes, reveal a glimpse of the loading screen art, and a first look at the backstory text as penned by RSFAngel, winner of last year's First Strike Fan Fiction Contest, whose prize was to get the opportunity to write this text, together with tester access to the mod. Let's see what he came up with...


"Hot on the trail of a pair of rogue droids, escaping a captured Rebel starship in orbit, elite Imperial Sandtroopers are deployed to scour the arid wastelands of Tatooine far below. Their orders are to search anywhere that could possibly harbour the fugitives. The droids carry sensitive information which the Empire can not allow to fall into Rebel hands. Meanwhile, a Rebel Alliance cell based out of Anchorhead has been tasked with engaging these Imperial forces in an attempt to hamper their efforts and buy the droids the time they need to get off world and evade capture."

So the stage is set for an intriguing engagement between Imperial and Rebel forces, and unlike our previous Tatooine maps this one will take you up close and personal to distinctive Star Wars movie locales so close to the timeframe of the movies that it will give you the feeling that if you'd got there five minutes earlier you'd have crossed paths with Luke Skywalker himself.

We'd also like to thank all who voted for us in this year's ModDB Awards. We may not have made the Top 10 this year, but your votes are still appreciated. Besides, look at our past form. 3rd Place Unreleased Mod in 2006, and then 4th Place in the Top 10 Released Mods of 2008, clearly 2009 was not supposed to be our year, but we'll clean up in 2010. Thanks once again to everyone who voted.

Finally we'd like to expose you to a little more eye candy in the form of the second in our series of screenshot previews.



And now I'd like to leave you with but one more parting thought.

There... is... another...



...map.

"There... is... another...

...map."

Yoda reference FTW... can't wait to start zapping heads when this hits... provided the servers are populated for once...

Not to be a pessimist or anything, but the mod has seemed... kinda dead whenever I log in... and by dead, I mean empty servers all around, maybe two or three guys duking it out on one map on occasion, but the rest of the time the servers are just plain DESERTED...

or is that just me?
