Star Wars: Republic Commando 2 - Republic Forces was first planned as a mod for the original game called Star Wars: Republic Commando but later the creators of Republic Forces decided to call it an addon for the original game. This was because it was adding and improving so many things that wasn't just a modification anymore, for example the HUD or the graphic at all, textures, shading, effects etc.
Also was planned coop-mode and a lot of new features regarding the multiplayer. Some issues with the old engine(Unreal Engine 2.5) and a broken HDD of the main creator brought a new idea: Currently every old recourse(texture, animation, mesh, particle fx, ...) was exported from the old game and only some of these exported are going to be edited to make it's quality better(e.g. lowpoly meshes to highpoly, HQ textures to HD, ...) and to import it into the Unreal Engine 4 which opnes way more possebilities and less bugs than before.
We currently focus on SP, new weapons, missions, troopers, new vehicles, useable and driveable vehicles, new turrets for the CIS, a kamino mission, a spacebattle mission and a kashyyyk mission, the rescue of Sev.
Weapons like the DC15A and new Troopers like the Scouttroopers or the ARC Troopers will be new features on the Republic side. The CIS will own a couple of new tanks to destray and fight in a lot of battles between the Republic and the CIS. Also are some new droids planned. The Battledroids will look like in the movies or the Clone Wars.
After that we might plan on making multiplayer.
More information available soon.
I do not know if I mentioned it back then but our main harddrive died years ago and so did the project.
I can not redo all of that work (sadly) nor do I want to. One last thing I am willing to do (if possible) is to replace some textures (the most visible ones) with some more detailed one. Like a graphics mod basically.
If you are interested in that as some kind of compensation I will check whats possible and whats not.
There is a poll regarding this topic, take your time.
This is the first trailer of the addon for Star Wars Republic Commando. Please watch the scene for more news and videos.
