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!

Simply put, if you love Star Wars it will just blow you away.

The highest level of attention to detail and lore accuracy has been poured into this mod, it is made by fans of Star Wars for fans of Star Wars, and the work that has gone into the style of gameplay to accurately represent a Star Wars style battlefield is beyond compare. You'll be able to battle the Rebellion or the Empire on various worlds and in space using a wide variety of weapons and vehicles.

Trust me you'll love it.

What operating system are you running? Windows Vista? Make sure that the launcher is run with administrator privileges. Also try turning off UAC. It's a bit cumbersome helping you out here in the commments section, but if you continue to have problems, go to our forums at and create a thread.
