In other news:

Sound artists Calum (tunednoise) and Altureus have been polishing up hundreds of voice overs (a HUGE task) and we'll do our best to get some of them out to you guys via moddb and our website.

Sharkybg has recently added new interior sections to Hoth which look awesome and will add an interesting gameplay element to the map. More on this later!

That's all for now folks,

We hope you had/have a good day! The BattleCry team.

Great job on the site.

Although is it just me, or are the servers busy? :P

also .. will this be Oculus-rift compatible? or do we have to wait for Cry-engine to integrate it? (is that how it works?)

Just visited the official website: www..­swbattlecry.­com and saw the pool for weapon customization.

I choose neither of the three options ("Yes", "No", and "I don't care"). My choice will go for Rebels to have weapon customization (as well as other types of customizations), while the Imperials don't get customization. You could probably balance this by making the Imperials more accurate or give them generally good weapons/armor (which they should have, anyway), or more ammo, or advantage in numbers or tech. Or give them the option of choosing a bonus for the battle (like in the Battlefront 1 & 2).

At least In Universe point of view it makes sense - usually the Imperials were better equipped, had advantage in numbers, etc. The Rebels are usually the more stealthy type - ambushes, sabotages, hit and run tactics...

Hopefully tricks like this would differentiate a little more the two opposing teams and give each one of them more unique feel and need for different tactics. When I played the BF 1&2 the gameplay for all factions were the same to me - something quite boring if only the visuals change but not the "feel".

Any comments?

Please post that on the new forums, that's a better place to discuss such things.

Which is your main Forum?

They're both the same text but we're thinking of making the moddb forum redundant to make things easier to manage.
