The Dark Times

1.0 Release

In 1977's Star Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi recalls fondly a bygone age of Jedi and high civilization abruptly brought to a halt by a period of galactic descent into darkness. While it took decades, a number of films, and other media productions, we eventually got a small look into those "Dark Times." This mod, "The Dark Times," takes inspiration from some of those small looks and unleashes it for your Battlefront II:

As mentioned in the video above, "The Dark Times" adds several innovative features to the Star Wars: Battlefront II you (hopefully) already enjoy. Most of the mod centers around adding several unique features for the single player - from the challenging and diverse "wave modes" to the dynamic conquest mode, with changing skydomes, AI heroes, and random assignment of heroes and units.

You'll also notice a substantial change in the way Jedi characters are played. Instead of a single-button three move combo, you are given two distinct types of attacks, light and heavy, and you can put them together in your own combos - and you aren't limited to just three moves in a row. Each Jedi also has a "Force Finisher" move that can be used under special conditions to clear out large groups of enemies. There's also a completely new set of Force powers (all of which can be charged to differing effects and potency) available!

In addition to the ground-unit changes, several changes have been made to space modes as well. Like the infantries, the space vehicles have seen a complete overhaul, with several brand new vehicles specific to the era (like the Z-95 Headhunter or the TIE Vanguard). However, in the second space mode (both Space Assault and Team Dogfight are available), heroes are made available - just like in ground maps - and each hero has his own powerful starfighter sure to pose a challenge to the enemy. Even the AI will take to space as these heroes.
