The Conversion Pack is a comprehensive add-on to the original Battlefront II. It adds 25 new maps - including all of the maps from Battlefront 1 not originally featured in Battlefront 2, 5 new gamemodes, a new era, and a substantial amount of expanded unit content to the original game.
Last day before release day for the Pack. Today we take a look at the two new KotOR-era maps added: Endar Spire and Battle of the Star Forge.

As preparation for the release of the Conversion Pack in a week, every day in the next week (9/14 - 9/20) you can anticipate seeing one new or updated aspect of the Conversion Pack covered. Sometimes it might be big, sometimes it might be small. We'll just have to see!
Bookends of Knights of the Old Republic
Knights of the Old Republic is an interesting time period and we at the Conversion Pack have done everything we can to make it feel accessible and just as integrated with the game as the original two eras. "But wait!" you say - "that era doesn't even have its own maps, it just uses the other eras' maps!"
Well, there's where you'd be wrong.
"Bookending" the game Knights of the Old Republic, the skirmish on the Endar Spire and the Battle of the Star Forge were two of the most important battles in that game - the first led you into that world, and the second allowed you to save it (or conquer it). Both, though, let the KotOR era really have a home of its own in the Pack.
