Expanding Fronts is a massive modification for Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds aimed to breathe life back into the classic LucasArts strategy game by adding various new units, features, and gameplay elements. Each of the 8 civilizations is being split into various Sub-Factions that specialize in unique combat roles including Infantry, Armor, Aircraft, Navy, Support, and Economics. Each of these Sub-Factions will have a full roster of new units and technologies available to them. In addition, the Scenario Editor is being filled with hundreds of new units, buildings, effects, and objects to allow campaign and scenario designers more freedom than ever before.
Our first public beta is rapidly approaching, and we're looking for official testers to help us out. Sign up to become an official Expanding Fronts tester now!

BETA REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
Today we are going to go over how to become an official Beta tester for the Expanding Fronts Development Team. As you all know by now, in late October we will be releasing the Galactic Empire civilization for all to download. This release will serve as a testbed for many of the changes we have implemented in the game and help us gauge how you, the players, react to the numerous new changes and features. The Beta will still be available for everybody to download and play, but official testers will work closely with the developers to hammer out bugs and issues.
If you are interested in becoming an official tester please E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
We will try to respond to all applicants by September 21st. After September 21st registration for official tester slots will be closed. Not everyone who applies will make it in; we only have a handful of slots and we are looking for the most qualified testers.
You will be playing alongside the development team, and will be helping us hammer out bugs and balance issues, as well as fine-tune new features. This is largely a data gathering experience that will help us refine the game. You will sometimes be asked to complete surveys and polls to help us collect this information.
You will receive frequent game updates and patches as we make adjustments, fixes, and implement new tests. These updates will come much faster than public ones, so it is important that you stay up to date.
If you are chosen to become an official Tester, you will receive an official confirmation E-mail from email@example.com. Once all of the testers have been selected we will E-mail you any other information you will need regarding times, files, procedures, and contact information. firstname.lastname@example.org is the ONLY E-mail that will be used to contact you.
We're looking forward to getting this project out the door, and into the hands of our community. These tests will ensure that a fair and fun experience is had by all players.
