Modern Warfare taken to a galaxy far, far away

Ah, total conversion mods. Gotta love ’em. Any developer who takes the time to turn one game into a completely different product is doing fine by me – particularly when they do it as well as the guys at BlackMonkeys.

The German developer has sat down with a copy of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and – inspired by Star Wars, set about converting the game into the breathtaking Star Wars Mod: Galactic Warfare, which has just hit version 1.0.

We’ve been hearing about the mod for some time now – the labour of love’s been in the works since 2009, and more than a dozen people have worked on the game. It all began “with a blaster-model”, the developers say – and, finally, you can download the final version.

It’s our goal to unite our favourite game CoD4:MW with the classic universe of Star Wars, as the best trilogy ever. With this total conversion we will combine lot of the known battlegrounds, characters and weapons of Star Wars with the fantastic gameplay of the COD4-Multiplayer. Either as a trooper of the Imperial Forces or as a soldier from the Rebel Alliance you will fight on some different locations.

V1.0 of Star Wars Mod: Galactic Warfare can be downloaded from our File Library, and is packed with favourite Star Wars characters, locations and weapons. That means seven maps (Mos Eisly, Bespin, Bestine, Not A Cave, Jundland, Jundland Dusk, and Anchorhead), SW-themed killstreaks like Viper Droid and Airstrike (which now includes Y-Wing and Tie-Bombers), and – due to continued demand – an installer to make your lives easier.

If you haven’t already got a copy of CoD4: Modern Warfare, it’s a perfect time to pick that one up, too – it’s one of the Daily Deals today on Steam, so you can pick the game up for half price!

Then, it’s a simple matter of installing the game, grabbing the mod files, installing those, and experiencing a bit of Star Wars Mod: Galactic Warfare.

Take a look around, and let us know what you think. Thank you, BlackMonkeys – and happy birthday!
