The Dark Times (and its successor, Dark Times II: Rising Son) is a mod focused on delivering a solid singleplayer experience in a traditionally multiplayer game, Star Wars Battlefront II.

The mod draws from the time period before and during the beginning of the Galactic Civil War. Several prominent characters from the movies as well as the expanded universe show up as one of over 20 new heroes added to the game - each hero supported by a special "hero support" unit.

While the mod of course supports multiplayer (and in fact has some scripted missions specifically for multiplayer), the majority of the content in the mod is designed with the intent to diversify the singleplayer experience - which is why there is a focus on randomization. A number of new game modes have also been added, including the popular "wave mode."

All right, gang! Straight from a galaxy far, far away to your PC comes Dark Times II: Rising Son.
Rising Son is the successor to the original Dark Times mod - it's not really a sequel, but it's much more than just a small version change. The original Dark Times mod was a mod designed to add some variable aspects to the game along with several changes made to enhance the singleplayer experience. Rising Son duplicates and elaborates - all the original content is there with many new features added to the mix.

Rising Son has all the random heroes and units of the original Dark Times increased by more than twofold, and spread across two distinct (but randomly chosen!) time periods. Rising Son, in addition to increasing the number of single-player wave modes, has several new game modes added - Control mode, V.I.P. mode, Space mode... and more! Rising Son adds a 16-mission single-player semi-linear campaign. Rising Son adds 16 new maps, the majority of which load in random environments each time you play.

Need more information? Be sure to check out the previous news posts, which have covered nearly every feature of the mod in detail.

Also, keep in mind that the download will have several pieces of helpful documentation, should you have any questions. Enjoy!

Khem...
"If you have the original "Dark Times" mod, you may delete that copy before installing if you want - this does not require the older version, and if you do not delete it, this will simply overwrite the older version. Everything from the older version is included in this download."

You should read Readme's next time

Will there be any more updates? I know I may look like an idiot asking since the last update was six years ago, but I'm just hoping.
