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!

Work continues apace on the singleplayer version of First Strike, and we are now approaching a time where we feel ready to release a closed Alpha Test Build to a limited number of people willing to test for the mod.

This is an opportunity for anyone interested in play testing the new singleplayer focused version of First Strike. Before releasing to the public, we want to do some stability testing and get feedback on the new kit loadouts. If you're willing to put in some serious time to battle First Strike bots, then please PM Dnamro to make a request for access to the new version.

Additionally, in other news it has come to light that the Dethklok Clan have managed to make a modification to Battlefield 2142 to once again allow for on-line multiplayer gameplay without the need to log in to the EA Master Server (which no longer exists), this is a massive and positive piece of news which could mean a return to the multiplayer arena for First Strike too. We're currently in discussions with the Dethklok Clan and looking into the implications for the mod, and if this will work for us as well as it works for vanilla BF2142. More news on that development as we have it.

For more details on this subject known as the BF2142 Reclamation, follow the link:

Dethklok Clan: BF2142 Reclamation


Until next time,

See you on the Battlefield Troopers!

Are you guys planning to add lightsabers in this mod and some jedi/sith caracters, like Lord Stalker, Starkiller, Vader, Emperor etc?!

No, the legal agreement regarding developing non-profit Star Wars related content prohibits us from using specific characters such as Vader, Luke & Han etc, but we are allowed to play in that general universe. Lightsabers and Jedi have never been an aspect we 're interested in anyway. With First Strike it is more about the grunts in the trenches, and the pilots and crew of the fleet. Plenty of other Star Wars games deal with Jedi and the other specifically named heroes.

Thank you Talon, I was just curious if there is gonna be anything with a lightsaber in this mod, because the graphics are so awesome and the Echo Base-2 video reminds a lot for SW TFU. Btw anything on the TIE's or at least one TIE and pilot from the 181 Legion?

We did have a lightsaber in once for a pick up Jedi kit, this was originally out with the Bounty Hunter kit which we released for a limited time as a fun bonus. Since then we have found a place for the Bounty Hunter kit in the proper game, but the Jedi kit was just a bit of fun and wouldn't really fit in with the style of gameplay that First Strike is based around, so it was never seriously considered as a permanent addition.

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.

Does anyone know where 2142 can be brought now?

Cant find it on origin or elsewhere.

That's the problem we're having to deal with. Unlike BF2, BF2142 never made it to Steam, digital copies were only ever available through Origin, so once EA dropped their support for it and stopped selling it, they have effectively taken it off the market. The only way you can buy BF2142 now is through second hand resellers, which sucks for us big time.
