Republic at War is a total conversion modification for Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption. The mod replaces the Empire with the Galactic Republic and the Rebel Alliance with the Confederacy. Republic at War focuses heavily on the theatrical films but also contains content from the Clone Wars cartoon series as well as the expanded universe. Players can re-enact various Clone War campaigns such as the Outer Rim Sieges. Players will have the choice to fight as either the CIS or the Republic and wage war for control of the galaxy. Realism is key and players will have unprecedented control over how and where they fight. Push forward with an entire clone legion such as the 501st or 212th or overwhelm your opponent with a seemingly endless number of B1 battledroids. The choice is yours. There are also a number of expansions planned that will add new (as well as polish existing) content.
Hopefully this will be the last news item I post until the mod is released.

Greetings, Star Wars fans! Hopefully this will be the last news item I post until the mod is released. We are well on our way and very close to wrapping up this project. The day is rapidly approaching where you will all be downloading and playing this mod. We are very close to Beta, and well past the Alpha stages. We are rigging the final units, as we speak and playtesting the mod daily. We expect to be releasing the mod to everyone VERY soon. I know you all are tired of hearing the word "soon" but we do not want to give a specfic date, however, we do have a date we are shooting for internally. I am pleased to announce that the land portion of the mod is pretty much wrapped up, and the coding team is making final changes and additions.
SFX are wrapping up also and the modeling department is winding down. I know many of you check the mod progress bar daily, and I am not always current on it. In fact, I have to update that right after I write this update. We are officially in the 92% percent range, with the last 8% being cosmetic changes here and there, and tweaks to various units. Boy do we have some surprises for you all. We dont want to spoil it, but we are adding in some things never before done, that are very cool indeed, those of you that have been lucky enough to see previews, please dont let the cat out of the bag yet. With todays updates, come some new unit profiles, the AT-RT, NR-N99 Tank, and the AAT. Also, we are pleased to release some new in game shots, some of these items you have seen, some you have not.
Here are some scenes we thought you would enjoy!
