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!

While we investigate ways to deal with this pesky lack of an EA Master Server (there are a few interesting potential avenues we're currently looking into). I thought I'd treat the First Strike faithful to a new work in progress video on the Echo Base location that features in the much anticipated Battle of Hoth map. Yes, we're still working towards getting that out there despite the recent developments. Depending on how things go you can consider this something to look forward to in the future, or something that might have been under different circumstances. Either way I hope you enjoy the video, and this peek at what we have planned for this most iconic of Star Wars locales.


We've also included a number of screenshots to give you a taste of what you have to look forward to, because they just look so damned pretty.

 
  

I'm also going to take this opportunity to announce that I'll be stepping down as leader of the First Strike Mod Development Team. It has been a Hell of a ride over the years, but I feel my very limited free time to mod would be better spent working solely on the Battle of Hoth map's art assets rather than having to deal with the various issues involved with leadership, then perhaps this fabled Hoth map will sometime finally see the light of day. Additionally these new complications that have arisen call for a different more technical type of leader, and I'm sure he'll be along soon to introduce himself to you.

So, so long and thanks for all the fish (wrong franchise, I know), not to worry though, I'll certainly still be around.

Hopefully soon we'll...

See you on the Battlefield Troopers!

With EA dropping support of BF2 and BF2142 is it possible to get a free standalone version in the future? Or is this still illegal although EA gives a **** about their games?

Nice idea. Also development shift to AI tweaks and coop maps support and we've got ourselves a best lan-party since battlefront 2 and ut04.

Digging deep into our archives I found a solution to the missing mouse cursor/pointer problem, though not sure if this is going to help you or not. Back in the day this issue was caused by not having BF2142 bang up to date, it occurred when you didn't have the BF2142 1.5 update installed, updating this fixed the problem, but I have to assume you all have that now. Best bet is to make sure that your BF2142 has all the correct final updates. You can find links to these over on the FSMod forums.

I hope that is of help.

Well that's really nice to hear. It is good to know our hard work is appreciated. As I've said earlier, we as a dev team will look at our options and see where we can go from here. We aim to have some news out on this subject soon.

On another note, I hope the new DICE made Battlefront will be a different animal to the latest Battlefields and not just a Star Wars reskin of that game. I hope they'll take what was good in the original Battlefront, the grittiness of Battlefield, and maybe even take on a little of what we have done over the years and craft something really special.

Time will tell.
