Star Wars Battlefront gives you the chance to play as a soldier in intense multiplayer battles with up to 32 people. Choose your allegiance and pick a soldier from one of four different armies. Fight on ten legendary planets and use a variety of weapons and vehicles, including X-wings, snowspeeders and AT-ST's. Keep your wits about you and victory may be within your reach. Experience the chaos of battle as you fight the greatest wars in the Star Wars universe.
In addition to the single-player and various multiplayer modes offered in Star Wars Battlefront, a unique "Conquest" mode adds an innovative and strategic gameplay element to the action. After each battle is completed and the planet is conquered, the winning team will be rewarded with a special "bonus" ability that can be deployed in future battles in an attempt to take over the Star Wars galaxy planet-by-planet.
In 2023, I restarted development on what was originally known as Star Wars: Battlefront Legacy. I amended the title in the hopes of avoiding confusion with the similarly-titled Star Wars: Battlefront III Legacy and resumed working on the project, with a new direction, inspired by the various entries in the Battlefront franchise. The first thing I did was overhaul the class system. Though I kept to the same basic structure as the original Legacy mod - which in turn was a modified version of the base game's structure.
I also chose to change some of the maps to add in props and features recogniseable from other games, such as the Processing Facility in Cloud City. Some maps have been extensively redressed, while some simply have the odd cosmetic tweak.
In mid 2023, I chose to return to education, and so work on the mod was halted for a while, until I could properly assess my situation as well as the work I had done so far. That assessment has now concluded and I feel comfortable enough to continue and push this over the finish line.
As far as this restart goes, it's the same mod it was in 2023, just with a new title. Given its current state, which I am happy to say is pretty much feature-complete, it is now planned for release this year - the new name was chosen to celebrate 20 years since the original game launched.
As far as further support, one map pack addon is expected to be shipped alongside the release - the Star Wars: Battlefront II map pack, which will enable you to play all ported SWBF2 maps properly with this mod. Further map packs are being explored, such as a map pack containing my previous maps, updated to work with Anniversary Edition, and support for the Elite Squadron Map Packs.
Stay tuned in the coming months for further news.
