A group of German modders wants you to put away your M-16 and take up a blaster.

The modding team Black Monkeys has spent the last year developing Galactic Warfare, a total-conversion mod for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The project’s set in the galaxy made famous by George Lucas and focuses on multiplayer skirmishes between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire.


The mod replaces much of COD4 with models, maps, and environments inspired by the Star Wars films. The Black Monkeys actually replaced the Harriers called in during an airstrike with Y-wings and TIE Bombers! That’s quality you rarely see in the modding community.


Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.
