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

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: EA Master Server Finally Down

3 comments by TALON_UK on Jul 18th, 2014


Well we have now come to the end of an era. The EA Master Server has finally gone down, and with that the login service which records your rank, and keeps track of your unlocks for your customisable kits. Without being able to log in to the server you are unable to play the game on-line, even the local or singleplayer version of our mod will not run due to this issue. However singleplayer is available if you disconnect from the internet.

We are looking at ways to get around this. Some of our fellow Battlefield mods have already fielded solutions to the problem of the server going down which allow their games to be played, and we'll be looking at possible solutions too. We are currently working with GameRanger, a facility which bypasses the need to log on to the Master Server to play the game. They already support many Battlefield games including BF2142, and it may very well be possible that you'll be able to play First Strike via this system. As yet no solution appears to be available for the lack of kit customisation options. However, the way First Strike deals with kits means that only the kit primary weapon is effected, all other gadgets are still available, which is a plus we have over BF2142 itself which finds its kit options severely hampered by the lack of the customisation functionality. Still hopefully this will also be restored soon so both BF2142 and First Strike can become fully functional again.

As of now First Strike is off-line only with no multiplayer options available at this time. But rest assured we'll keep you informed of developments as they happen, and we hope to be back up and running again soon.

Until then

See you on the Battlefield Troopers!

Looks like our only hopes are Hamachi and Gameranger. That is, if Gameranger will add support for the remaining BF-games as well.

Jumping on the Rebel Defiance server for a couple of games in around half an hour if anyone's up for it.

See you there.

Is there a way to install this with the Origin version of 2142? Cause I just bought it for $0.99 but I know some mods don't work with games linked to Origin.

Hi Death's Head. First Strike works fine with the Origin version of BF2142, so you should be all good to go.

Did the mod just die because of the Gamespy server shutdown?

No, there is an issue with our webspace provider closing down, which is why the website is currently down. We'll be hosting our forums elsewhere, but that will take a few days to sort out. I'll be putting a news post out about that and these other issues shortly. Just bad timing with that happening and these other revelations coming out regarding Gamespy amongst other things. It is certainly of concern to us, and we'll have to figure out exactly what the ramifications of that are for us as a mod.

Perhaps finding a way to get someone such as GameRanger to host the servers might help solve the issue. I don't particularly care for multiplayer, but, i realize the main focus of the mod is multiplayer. If that goes, then the only way i can see developement continuing is shifting focus towards singleplayer.

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