I had heard rumor of this, but this is the first evidence I've had of it. I'm more excited about this than most of the new games coming out.

This might actually get a buddy of mine to upgrade his computer in order to run it. Between this and KOTOR for PC I'm sure he'll be spending some money on new hardware quite soon.

I downloaded the mod and the patch I havent tried it yet, wasnt able to get into a game, only one map available right now, and no single player is a thumbs down for now even though two more maps will be released, I like to play BF offline as well as Online.

After reading the forums for the mod it seems they are having some trouble with the AT-AT's walking. DICE/EA have yet to release an official SDK and without that the mod team lacks the tools to do it convincingly. They aren't really happy with the AT-ST's walk either, but it was good enough for release.

 

It sounds as if the next release will bring two more maps with some appropriate vehicles. I'm looking forward to seeing how this mod turns out. Even with its current limitations and flaws it's a great first start and a lot of fun to play.

The mod is good for a laugh. There are still bugs a plenty and some vehicle handling is brutal, but hey at least there's more than one map now :)
