STAR WARS GALACTIC BATFLEGROUNDS’ EXPANDING FORTS MOD ADDS THREE NEUTRAL CIVILIZATIONS TO THE 1.5 UPDATE
Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds was 20 years old this month. The dedicated modders behind the Expanding Fronts Mod celebrated by releasing Update 1.4.1 and details about the 1.5 update, which is due to launch in the early part of next year.
The developer said Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds 1.5 would be the “largest addition to content to date”. Three new playable civilizations are in development: the New Republic and Imperial Remnant. They were all designed to look the same in the Expanded Universe continuity, previously known as the Expanded Universe.
The New Republic boasts an “incredible aerial strength”, to which their unique unit, V-Wing Airspeeder, greatly contributes. Its cluster missiles allow it to strike ground targets with devastating precision. The civilization can field Knights and Masters from the New Jedi Order and benefit from discounted research at the Jedi Temple.
Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds 1.5 update: The Imperial Remnant is about defence. They are skilled at fortifying their positions, and they have strong late-game Temple technologies. The Shadowtrooper is their unique unit and fulfils the role of melee infantry. It also benefits from Trooper upgrades and Temple upgrades.
The civilization’s criminal tendencies give it the ability to recruit infantry units quicker than its competitors. They are backed by Force-wielding Nightsisters and the civilization’s only unit, the Gladiator Droid. This unit is “capable of enormous destruction.” “
In the weeks ahead, the developer will provide details on each Expanded Fronts’ new civilizations. This will be in preparation for the 1.5 update’s early 2022 release.
The 1.4.1 update was released in November. It added the multi-queue function, fixed crashes, and introduced three new cheat codes. There are also balance changes. You can find the complete list at Mod DB.
