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!

When the BF2142 Master server goes down, will it mean no new copies of BF2142 can be activated, and unlocks for the game being permanently locked, due to no access to the master server? Honestly, I kinda saw this coming a long time ago, and had one solution. Since the BF2 and BF2142 engines are almost the same, Bf2142 being modded with BF2 tools, the community working on solutions to get a new Bf2 master up, and the fact that BF2 doesn't require an EA account in order to activate, perhaps the mod can be backported to BF2. I understand you guys prefer BF2142 over BF2, and would like to keep it up and running, but, if no new copies can be activated after the server shutdown, and no solution is presented within a period of time afterwards, then the mod will slowly but surely die out. I'd rather see it continue development and live on than die with BF2142.

That is a possible solution and may gain us new players from the larger BF2 mod playing community (in fact FS was originally being developed for BF2), however there are issues with key features from BF2142 which are used in FS, namely the code that facilitates walking mechs which we obviously make use of for our Imperial Walkers.

Anyhow, hope to see you guys around this evening for some space based fragging. Should be on from 8pm BST (British Summer Time) onwards.

If you guys opt for a server emulator, could it be made to emulate the server, even without an internet connection? I was discussing this with Dnamro on the First Strike forums. If the server is not connected to, then weapons classified as unlocks (including those that are suppose to be unlocked from the get go) will stay locked. Dnamro confirmed it was the case.

You guys could team up with the Forgotten Hope 2 and Project Reality guys. They are working on a server solution right now.

We are in the process of getting into talks with them, not sure if there will be added complications due to us being for BF2142 rather than BF2, but once we get a full dialogue going with them we'll be able to see exactly what our options are, and then we'll let everyone know how we plan to proceed.

That is the question isn't it?

Sorry it has taken us so long to respond. I've been extremely busy with work over these last few weeks, just sucky timing.

We are looking at options, and there are a few things on the cards, so once we know how we plan to proceed we'll let you all know.

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