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.
Second-to-last day in the countdown to release. Today we'll look at the new "Hero Capture-the-Flag" mode.

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!
Hero Capture-the-Flag Mode
We can play a whole slew of modes in Battlefront II... as infantry. But what about the heroes? Star Wars is really their story, after all. Well, we decided to buckle down and give the heroes and villains of that galaxy far, far away a bit more facetime with "Hero" Capture-the-Flag.
Hero Capture-the-Flag comes in a couple different varieties. You can play a "Jedi-only" version of HCTF wherein no one but the guys with the lightsabers show up. There's also a "Gunners-only" version, which features all the heroes - like Boss, the Republic commando, or Durge, the fierce bounty hunter - who use ranged weapons. Finally, there's a KotOR HCTF, which is mixed - both Jedi and non-Jedi show up.
