This is a mod in progress for MoW:AS2 changing the theme to the Star Wars universe with new high quality content, new non-linear RPG gameplay and new game mechanics like functional bacta dispensers, blast doors and much more. Please check out the F.A.Q. section!


You will command small commando squads and special weapons, forcing you to use them very carefully and think about every step you make. Sometimes you will be playing a specific character (prepare to use the slowdown function and to direct control units ALOT) with AI-controlled companions by your side. Some levels will feature indoor enviroments - hallways and hangars, accessing control panels and opening gates to reach your objectives. Dynamic/random events and side objectives:killing a specific person can cause mercenaries to attack you, or you will recieve supplies from somebody you helped earlier - even the enemy can gain strength from your decisions.

Support & Donation

We put alot of work into this with the bit of free time we can spare. If you want to see us making more progress, please share this mod and our newest stuff with your fellow gamers and friends! Even if you are no modder and can't help us directly, you can still tell other people about this (who might be able to join us). You see, your support is really important for us to get the full project done faster!

You can donate here if you wish to support Buzztron personally that way.

Bespin Hangar Shootout

Hey there,

here's a small video, not much new except for some fancy animations and updated blaster effects.
I've replaced the old vanilla idle animations and added some other cool animations with permission from our friends over at the HL2 themed AS1 mod "Absolute Pressure".


I'm mainly uploading videos on YouTube now, since I don't have to worry about the file size there, and because... well... it's bloody YouTube ;) I now have access to a music library (as you can hear in the latest videos), the license I own for that only applies to my YouTube channel - so these videos won't be available here. Make sure to check out that channel for more awesome videos, if you enjoy Rising Empire and AS2 mods in general!

Oh,but i was just answering his question,you know ?

Also,maybe next time people like him will learn to read previous comments,so that they wouldn't have to write the same exact comment over and over again.Just sayin',you read the description,and then you read all other comments.If you see about a hundred other people asking the same thing and the developers answering it,you usually don't ask about that thing again.
