Last week, Disney announced that GOG was breathing new life into Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Classic by adding official multiplayer support. This has since revived the modding scene, prompting an overhaul of one of the biggest mods to work alongside the official multiplayer.
When GOG updated Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Classic, it was welcome news from many, but fans were left with many of their mods not working. This prompted many to get on board with unofficially converting old mods to work with the new found multiplayer.
The Star Wars Battlefront Conversion Pack was released back in 2008, when the modding scene for Pandemic’s Battlefront 2 was at its peak. It’s fair to say this mod in particular is one of the most comprehensive, including 25 maps, 5 extra game modes, 20 new heroes and over new 30 units that taken from multiple eras of the Star Wars universe, including many from the Knights of the Old Republic titles from BioWare and Obsidian.
The Galactic Civil War and Clone War eras are not left out either, with each receiving new units as well as a more accurate reskinning of certain Clone Trooper classes depending on the map you’re playing, mimicking that of the movies.
The unofficial patch to make the Star Wars Battlefront Conversion Pack compatible with the new multiplayer can be found here, and will work with both the GOG and Steam versions of the game.
The base game of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Classic did leave a lot of people angry at the 2015 reboot for its lack of content, and its near-nonexistent mod support. This trend is unfortunately likely to continue in 2017’s Star Wars: Battlefront 2.
KitGuru Says: I already have fond memories of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Classic, but this has reignited my interest to the point of picking it up again. Have you dived back into the multiplayer since it’s become more lively?
