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

Greetings Troopers!

The First Strike team has decided to continue the mod on the Unreal 4 game engine to develop a free stand-alone Star Wars game -- and the best way to do that is to join forces with the BattleCry team. Both teams are committed to developing a game that fans will love to play. The First Strike team has many maps and models that just need to be ported, while the Battlecry team was already working on basic game play, so it just made sense to work together. We are all excited on the possibilities that we can unleash with this new engine by teaming up together. 

Below is a cracking illustration put together by a member of the Battlecry dev team (Jo Greve) to mark this momentous occasion;


With that being said, we have also decided to wrap up development work on BF2142 in order to focus on moving to the new game engine. A final update will be released soon with the singleplayer kits changes. We will also post unfinished work, to include Hoth, and all the developed AI meshes separately in the event that a work around is found for the loss of Master Account Server and someone wants to continue the mod for BF2142.

So this marks the end of an era, and our association with Battlefield 2142, but the start of a brand new and exciting one embracing not only a new engine in Unreal 4, but a new and vital amalgamated team. Exciting times ahead indeed. 

See you out there on the battlefield Trooper!

ok i downloaded it and tested and it was really fun, only one small complaining, how come there is so much ammo on the most weapons but there is no reload :S i would love to see a reload animation. Anyways the game itself works perfect but after i play 15-20 mins i suddenly get 1 second freeze lag and every 5 sec i get 1 sec freeze lag and it keeps going, i need to rejoin the server ore the server needs to change map to fix it, why do i get those randomly freeze lags?

The lags you speak of are a problem at EAs end, some issue with more limited master servers or something, other rumours say it is some Punkbuster issue. Some people get it, others don't. Hopefully they'll fix this problem soon.

Regarding reload animations, most weapons have some form of reload, though admittedly not all.

If your PC can handle BF2142? It should handle First Strike just fine. The mod is active on-line, but to be honest is a little slow at the moment due to some issues with PB or EA Master servers or something that is causing lag issues (not something on our end, happens when you play BF2142 as well). Once they get that issue sorted out things should pick up again, not to mention the fact that when we release the next version of the mod we should see a resurgence in players also.

I've not had the chance to play the latest version of the Singleplayer Mini Mod yet, so I'm probably not the best person to ask, but as far as I'm aware pretty much all the First Strike's current maps have some level of Bot Support within the Mini Mod, but some (the more infantry based maps spring to mind) have fuller Bot Support than others.

I'm sure someone will soon pipe up and correct me if I'm mistaken.

So the short version of the answer to your question Tigerace? Is all of them.

Hoth will be out this year Geardown, all our resources will be focused solely on that once the next version of the mod has been released.

Great mod! It can even be considered an actual game! Just wish more people would play it online...
