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!

GameRanger has a master account bypass set up, but that is only for BF2142. For singelplayer, currently you have to disconnect from the internet to bypass the master account login and play with an offline account. Once bypassed your can reconnect, but the game will then ask if you want to connect to the master account -- select no.

You can go into off-line mode which should allow you to play co-op and singleplayer. The lack of the EA Master server does mean no multiplayer at the moment unfortunately.

Some mods have managed to bypass this problem for BF2, but BF2142 handles the account log in slightly differently, which means we can't use that code for our mod with some tweaking.

Midgee, you should be able to play off-line when disconnected from the net, does it not then give you the option to play off-line? This doesn't require a log in and you should be able to get right in there with the option to use an off-line soldier. The go to multiplayer, select local and then choose co-op to gain access to the bot supported maps.

There will be no account, but it should switch to off-line mode and allow you to play with non-customised kits.

edit: I don't know how far bf2142 differs from bf2 for the master server, but if it does not work on bf2142, couldn't you port FS to bf2 as there is a working solution there?

edit: About Hoth. Can't you just release the Work in Progess state you have now with your final Singleplayer-Patch just for the fans to enjoy?

Eventually adding singleplayer to Hoth and releasing in current beta is a possibility. It will take some time, as the focus of single player has been on updating existing maps.

One of your Devs is still looking into the possibility of updating our launcher to bypass the master account server, but as Talon pointed out, the BF2 master account server worked differently than the BF2142, so it's a little more complicated than just using the PR team's code.

As far as porting FS to BF2142, it is not an easy port. We have looked into this just for the sake of using the debugger. BF2142 has capabilities that First Strike uses that are not available in BF2. Only a small subset of the mod could be directly ported.

We could look at doing that, but there is currently no bot support at all for Hoth, so without multiplayer you wouldn't really have much to do on there. It might be something to look at.
