Surprising the whole community, Youtuber ToastedShoes unveiled a new mod which is based on Star Wars and converts players into a legendary 501st Legion, and the enemies into the Separatist Droids.

The community has shown so much excitement for the mod and is very hopeful to play the mods themselves. Currently, the mod is unavailable for players to try, but soon it will be. While the mod is detailed and well-crafted, it doesn’t bring any changes to the weapon’s appearance. This is the only aspect that remains unchanged.

The weapons in the new Star Wars mod remain the same as original game which makes the mod a little bit underwhelming. It would have been much cooler and more immersed if the weapons were also from the Star Wars franchise.
