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!

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.

Having a problem with no servers showing up(or well 1 red which doesnt work)

Got 2142 on origin fully updated(couldn't install final 1.51)
FS 1.6 with newest launcher.
In the server browser I can only see 2142 servers if I uncheck everything and when I click 'same mod' then I get 1 red FS server and thats it.

Any ideas??

you need 1.51 before playing this modo, but Origin do it automatically, or it should

I just ment I couldn't install the 1.50 or and 1.51 manually, which means the game is already fully updated.

went into 2142 folder and deleted the FirstStrike.exe
Copied the 2142.exe (which I knew functioned well for 2142 at least)
and renamed it FirstStrike
then launched with FS launcher.
No more red server problem. Finally.

That is a old solve, try it.

Already tried that..nothing changes. I can still see just one red FS server 'Rebel Defiance' sometimes I can join it but always end up crashing or textures are bugged.

I dunno the solution but if you are able to play even whith the textures bugged, your installation isn't bad at all. Does it crash on galaxy maps, like battle of yavin, or it crashes always?
