Star Wars Mod: Galactic Warfare 0.8 Beta Out Right Now
Here’s something fun to kick off your Friday. Star Wars Mod: Galactic Warfare is a Call of Duty 4 full conversion that recreates a surprisingly large amount of the classic Star Wars universe in glorious FPS style (and based on the trailer, 3rd person too.) And good news for those of us still psychically scarred by Lucas’ regrettable return to Filmmaking, all locales are from the Original Trilogy, not the crummy prequels. Awesome.
It’s still very much a work in progress, so the latest download doesn’t change beta status. That said, it sounds great. 0.8 comes with 3 new maps, 4 new weapons, new character classes and missions expanding on the already huge in-game universe. Play classic trilogy locations like Tatooine, Bespin, even the giant space slug from Empire. Also, Endor.
Developers BlackMonkey released the first version of Galactic Warfare at the end of December, 2009, and it still managed to grab a Mod Db Player’s Choice Mod of The Year nod. You can grab your copy here and find out why for yourself. Meanwhile, watch this trailer, which contains less than two minutes of work-in-progress game footage and yet, is still better than Phantom Menace.
