Report RSS 0.5 Release Date & Launch Trailer!

The release date for 0.5 and the official launch trailer is finally here! We can't wait!

Posted by on

Greetings everyone,

The long awaited moment is here. In June 2015, we took up development of this mod and oh boy how naive were we. Our original expectations was to bring all this type of content in the Winter of 2015.

As time progressed, we saw that not only is our aim really ambitious, but also that we want to make it as quality, polished and packed with variety as possible. This led to now almost a year and a half of development, 4 public versions released and absolute loads of fun. There was good times, there was bad times, but all of it is something we will never forget.

With this update, Bear Force II will enter a new era. Our vision is here, the skeleton is set. Our focus will be on building on this skeleton and bringing this mod to every corner of the galaxy!

Ladies and gentlemen, respected players and our beloved community - feast your eyes on the Launch Trailer!

Looks great, guys!
Btw, I think you need to include a Discord invite link so people can join the server.

No, not for me; it doesn’t look like it’s linked properly, i.e. you haven’t made an invite. What you could try is to get someone, like a person with Admin powers or the person who created the server, should have this (https://imgur.com/a/xmIQJ ) on their screen. Click on ‘Invite People’ and it should pop-up with this (https://imgur.com/a/Lkwop) on the screen; also, you may want to set the invite to never expire.

Well Dayum, looks like some people have been hard at work. Can't wait!
By the way, did you guys adjust the accuracy after that public event a few days ago? I personally found the new system was a bit too inaccurate during the event.

Nice. But still didn't see any new Jedi / Sith Outfit... a bit lame in all honesty.. you guys promised to get more jedi outfits, more realistic to the movie jedi robes and such, other star wars warband mods did it, idk why this multiplayer uses the less realistic jedi/sith outfits. Like the mod is all cool and everything, but cant have nice looking stuff for jedi/sith like seriously? I hope itll change before release.. If you guys need a point of what i am pointing at, look at the ported clone wars mod for warband, they all got cool jedi robes and such, same for sith. im not complaining or anything, just providing my opinion, please dont take it as offence.

We promised it, yes but certainly not this soon.
The next big update will focus exclusively on force users(Weapons, armours, forces...) so I hope that'll be the right thing for you :P
