SECTION 2:

introduction

There are three different ways to play STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR. Each way focuses on a different method of capturing planets and offers a unique play experience.

STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WARS action is persistent, meaning that strategic decisions on the Galactic Map and results from previous battles will have a lasting impact on the galaxy. Your space forces in orbit over a planet can reinforce your fleets in the heat of battle or assist in ground assaults. You can also choose to retreat from any battle, regroup your forces, and return better equipped in the future.

From the dirt of the battlefield to the depths of space, STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR puts the epic struggle for control of the galaxy at your fingertips. You will take command of either the burgeoning Rebel Alliance or the oppressive Galactic Empire. As the ultimate galactic commander, you must construct your army and strategically deploy your forces throughout the galaxy to conquer each every enemy controlled planet. Wage war on land and in space.

WHAT IS STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR?

Campaign and Galactic Conquest game modes are played from three different but connected views of the battlefield:

HOW DO YOU PLAY STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR?

GALACTIC MAP

In the Galactic Map you have control over all of your fleets, armies, and planets. This is the primary game mode where building and unit construction takes place, income is gathered, and your global strategy is planned. To move your forces to other planets, grab and drag them to a slot on another planet. If your army enters a planet controlled by the enemy, a tactical battle will begin in space or on land. The attacker must conquer both the space and the land map of a planet in order to take control of a system. Doing so earns instant credits and will get you closer to your goal of galactic domination.

SPACE TACTICAL COMBAT

CAMPAIGN

Play as the Empire and conquer the galaxy or choose the Rebels and liberate it. The choice is yours as you play through a series of epic story-based missions on land and in space. Your forces will be small at first, but as you progress through the campaign more of the galaxy will become yours to command, including new planets, technologies, and heroes. If you want to experience the exciting events leading up to Star Wars: Episode IV from the perspective of the Empire or the Rebels, then this is the game mode for you.

When your space fleets encounter an enemy in orbit above a planet, a space tactical battle will be initiated. In space tactical combat, the attacking fleet must destroy the defenders entire enemy fleet and space station (if a station is present). Be aware that you cannot build any new units during a tactical battle. You will need to rely on ships youve built on the Galactic Map, and garrison units produced by your space stations and destroyers. If the attacker is victorious, they will take control of the space above the planet. The attacker may then launch an attack on the planets surface. In land tactical combat, the attacking army must destroy the enemys base structures and units. To do this you must land reinforcements from orbit above the planet within the radius of any friendly reinforcement point. As in space, be aware that you cannot build new units during a tactical battle. The attacker can only reinforce with existing units built on the Galactic Map. Military structures will allow the defender to purchase bonuses for their units and provide a steady supply of Garrison Units to help defend the base. While exploring the planet, your units may discover valuable structures that they can capture and control.

LAND TACTICAL COMBAT

GALACTIC CONQUEST

Conquer the galaxy your way! Choose from several different starting scenarios that include galaxies of different sizes, technology levels, and starting credits. This freeform game mode offers an open-ended experience that includes all the elements from the story campaign, allowing you to create your own extraordinary scenarios to decide your path to victory. This game mode can be played against the computer or a human opponent.

SKIRMISH BATTLES

Conquer a single battlefield in one intense battle. Skirmish battles are shorter conflicts fought either on land or in space and always between two teams. In this mode all resource gathering and construction will take place on the battlefield itself, since there is no persistent Galactic Map. You can play this mode one on one against a human opponent, or with a combination of up to seven human or CPU opponents. Players on a team cooperate to secure victory. Skirmish mode offers a familiar experience in the style of many classic realtime strategy games, but with a focus on fast-paced action.
4

NOTE ON SKIRMISH MODE: Skirmish play is a single tactical battle, and there is no Galactic Map. Unlike Campaign and Galactic Conquest modes, when playing a Skirmish game unit construction does occur during battle from the buildings that are present on the map. Each player receives a steady flow of credits but can increase their income by capturing strategic points on the map.

GETTING STARTED
The tutorial is a great place to start the game, even for experienced players. If youve never played a strategy game before, start with Tutorial 1. If you have played strategy games before, feel free to skip ahead to the more advanced tutorials. Here you will discover the innovative features that make STAR WARS: EMPIRE AT WAR unlike any other strategy game. You can play the entire game using only your mouse. Simply click the left mouse button to make a selection. You can click and drag your units between slots on the Galactic Map, or drag a selection box to choose multiple units in battle. In battle you can click the right mouse button to issue orders to your selected troops, or to choose a units special abilities. You can use the mouse wheel to zoom in on a planet on the Galactic Map, or to adjust to your viewpoint during combat. For more information about the interface or on specific units, let your mouse cursor rest over the icon. A tool tip will appear with more information. For a complete list of default controls, refer to the back cover of the manual. Remember that you can customize your controls however you like in the game options.

Zoom in, or use the Structures filter on the Galactic Map to see the maximum space station level for the planet. In addition to the space station, two other slots for structures also appear in space. These can be filled with long range scanners that provide information on enemy movements, or gravity well generators that prevent enemy retreat. When construction on a space station is complete, it will automatically be placed in orbit above the planet. NOTE: You can queue up five land and five space constructions per planet.

You can combine units by dragging one friendly icon over another. Combine fleets to make them larger and more powerful. You can separate fleets in the zoomed in view by dragging some units into one of the other two fleet slots above the planet. NOTE: You can combine ground and space forces in your space fleets, but only ground units can be used on a planets surface. Ground units in a space fleet will ride aboard lightly armored transport ships that are vulnerable to attack and cannot contribute to the battle.

Select a planet, and then select the ground production tab. The types of units that you can build are determined by the types of structures youve built on the planet, and your technology level. Once a unit is created it will be added to one of the ten reinforcement areas on the planets surface. If a planet already contains ten land units, any additional units will be placed in a space fleet.

CREATING UNITS ON THE GROUND

SPECIAL ABILITY SLOTS

Some units have special abilities that allow them to perform special actions on enemy planets. For example: Smugglers can steal credits from enemy-controlled planets when moved into the steal slot located on each planet. Bounty hunters can neutralize enemy heroes without engaging in tactical combat.

ICONS

CONTROLLING YOUR FORCES IN GALACTIC VIEW

RAID PARTIES

Units in galactic mode are represented by icons, located either on a planet or above it in space. An icon representing multiple units will appear as a stack with the most powerful unit on top. Any unit in orbit above a planet is known as a fleet. The more powerful the fleet, the taller the icon stack will be.

A Rebel fleet consisting of four or fewer ground units, any number of heroes, and no space units is a raid party. Raid parties are able to bypass enemy fleets in orbit and land on the surface of a planet directly, skipping space combat entirely. Only the Rebel Alliance can use Raid parties.

STEALTH FLEETS

MOVING UNITS

Stealth fleets can be moved to an enemy planet without initiating a tactical battle. Stealth units can be used to spy on enemy planets, or in some cases steal credits or technology. A real-time, tactical battle occurs whenever you enter space or land territory that is controlled by enemy forces. In tactical battles, the defender initially has the advantage. The defender can upgrade his troops during battle at friendly structures, and use defensive emplacements to hold off the enemy. If the defender has built military structures on the planets surface, he will be rewarded with garrison troops from these facilities to aid in the planets defense. The burden is on the attacker to bring the right units to carry the battle. The attacker can even the odds by finding secondary structures on the map that may provide upgrades, lift the fog of war, or provide friendly indigenous troops. If there are friendly bombers in orbit, the player can call for a bombing run to strike key targets. Neither the attacker nor defender can create new units or structures during a tactical battle. Both must be prepared to make the most of what they constructed on the Galactic Map.

Click on a unit and drag it where you want to move. Units can only move to another planet that is within the orbital radius of the current planet, this appears as a green ring when the planet is selected. Fleets can jump between multiple friendly planets to reach a destination, or use a hyperspace trade route to reach remote planets. Units occupy slots, represented by the ovals on or near planets. Simply drag a unit to the slot you want to occupy.

COMBAT

Combat occurs when a force is moved into the same orbit as an enemy fleet, or brought to the surface of an enemy occupied planet. Once combat is initiated, you will have a choice to enter tactical mode, or allow the game to automatically resolve the conflict for you. The victor of the battle takes control of either the space above the planet or the surface. When both battlefields are conquered, the victor gains all advantages that the planet provides. NOTE: Auto-resolve is not available in Story Campaignonly in Galactic Conquest. Using Autoresolve often results in the loss of many more units than if you had fought the battle yourself.

EITHER FACTION CAN CONSTRUCT OFFENSIVE OR DEFENSIVE EMPLACEMENTS AT BUILD PADS.

Population Cap The population cap in tactical combat is different from galactic unit capacity.

In land tactical combat the attackers population cap is tied to the reinforcement points they control. Each reinforcement point provides a population bonus. You must capture and hold these points in order to increase the number of units you can bring to the battle. The defenders population cap is always 10. It is not tied to reinforcement points. For more information on Reinforcements, see page 18.

TACTICAL BATTLE SCREEN


9

Space In space tactical combat your population cap is fixed when you enter the battle. Different ships have a different impact on your population. For example, a Star Destroyer costs more population points than a TIE Scout. If you bring several of your large ships into the battle at once, you will reach the population cap quickly.

2 TACTICAL BATTLE MINI MAP

Friendly units are represented in green, while enemy units are red. Pirate units are yellow. The same color scheme applies to structures, which appear as rectangles on the map. Reinforcement points concealed by the fog of war are represented by gray triangles, friendly reinforcement points are green triangles, and enemy points are red. The location of combat will flash red. Areas covered by the fog of war are dark, while the area your units can see is bright.

ADJUSTING YOUR VIEW

CONTROLLING YOUR ARMY IN TACTICAL VIEW

In tactical combat you can use the mouse wheel to adjust your view of the battlefield. For an even wider view of the action, press the TAB button for a birds-eye view. Press TAB a second time for an even wider perspective. Pressing TAB a third time returns you to the standard game perspective. You can also zoom out to a birds-eye view by scrolling out with the mouse wheel until the camera stops moving. Scroll again once the camera has stopped to switch to birds-eye view.

In space battles, enemy fighters will have red fighter squadron icons which can be targeted in this same way. Attacking enemy fighter units by right-clicking on them will force your units to attack the entire squad of units. Attack-Move: Holding CTRL while right-clicking on the battlefield will command your units to move to that position, but also stop and attack any enemies they encounter along the way.

ECONOMY IN TACTICAL COMBAT

SELECTING UNITS

Units are designated as infantry, vehicles, or ships or heroes. To select a unit, left click on it. To select multiple units, left-click and drag the mouse to draw a box over the units. Double-clicking or holding ctrl while clicking on a unit will select all units of that type on screen (for example, ctrl-left-clicking a squad of stormtroopers will select all visible stormtrooper squads.). Hold the shift button while clicking or dragging the cursor to add units to those already selected. In space battles, select fighter squadrons by clicking on their icons.

In Campaign and Galactic Conquest, you enter tactical combat with the same number of total credits that you had on the Galactic Map. Galactic time stops during tactical combat, so you will not earn daily credits during the battle. You will have opportunities to spend credits during combat, so it is in your best interest to have some funds ready at all times in case you are attacked.

GAINING CREDITS

You can gain credits during combat by: Capturing a resource facility. Completing some secondary objectives. Selling structures or build pad emplacements (right click).

COMMAND GROUPS

All selected units are represented on the Command Bar by portrait icons. Left-click on a units icon to select it individually from the group. Once you have units selected, press Ctrl and any number key to assign the units to a command group. A number will appear next to each member of the group to let you know which group they belong to. Any time thereafter, press the corresponding number key to select that group. This allows you to control and organize many groups of units without having to click on them. Right click directly on the battlefield or on the Mini-Map to command selected units to move to a position. A single click move command will force your units to move in formation, at the speed of the slowest unit; while double clicking will allow your selected units to move at their own pace breaking formation.

PURCHASING UPGRADES

The defending faction can purchase offensive and defensive upgrades for their units at friendly structures. To purchase, click on the structure then choose an upgrade from the production bar. Upgrades are persistent, so if you purchase an upgrade in one battle, and are attacked again, your units will retain the bonus in the next battle. If the attacking faction is able to locate a Mercenary Outfitter on the map, they too will be able to purchase upgrades for their units.

USING BUILD PADS

MOVING UNITS

Build pads are extremely versatile construction sites that either faction can capture. Click on a build pad near your units to purchase one of six emplacements.

Anti-Vehicle Turret: Automatically attacks enemy units. Very effective against vehicles. Anti-Infantry Turret: Automatically attacks enemy units. Very effective against infantry. Bacta Healing Station: Heals friendly infantry units within its radius. Repair Station: Repairs friendly vehicles within its radius. Anti-Aircraft Turret: Automatically attacks enemy units. Very effective against aircraft. Sensor Node: Pushes back the fog of war a great deal, improving your visibility.

ATTACKING
20

Holding ALT while right-clicking creates waypoints for your troops to move to. Hold alt and right-click multiple times to tell units to move from one waypoint to the next. Right click on an enemy to have selected units attack it. They will ignore all other threats until the target is destroyed.

NOTE: In addition to their primary function, all build pad emplacements count as friendly units, and therefore clear the fog of war in their immediate vicinity. They do not count toward your population cap, so they are a great way to add firepower and support without increasing the size of your army.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES

COMBAT FEATURES

THE DEATH STAR

In tactical combat your goal is to defeat your enemy, but in many situations secondary objectives will be available that can be extremely rewarding. Whenever possible, try to incorporate the secondary objectives into your strategy to get the most out of the tactical battle.

SPACE COMBAT FEATURES


REINFORCEMENTS

When the Empire brings the Death Star into a space battle there will be a countdown at the top of the screen until it is in range. While the Death Star approaches the planet the Empire must fight the space tactical battle. Once in range the Death Star can fire at will and completely destroy the planets surface. After a planet has been destroyed, its land tactical map is eliminated from the galaxy. However, the space tactical map will remain as an asteroid field. The Rebels can only counter the Death Star by winning a space tactical battle against the Death Star, while Red Squadron is in their fleet.

Reinforcements can be dragged from the queue into areas where your units have already cleared the fog of war. Reinforcements cannot be deployed in Asteroid Fields, Nebulae, Ion Storms, or near enemy bases.
SHIELDS

GROUND COMBAT FEATURES


REINFORCEMENT POINTS

Most ships have shields in addition to their armored hull. Shields are represented by the blue bar just above the units health bar. Shields regenerate over time. Certain weapons can bypass shields to damage the armored hull directly.
STARSHIP HARDPOINTS

Reinforcement Points are tactical positions that increase the owners population cap and allow reinforcements to land. You must eliminate all nearby enemy units and then have at least one infantry unit near the Reinforcement Point hologram until it turns green. Only infantry units can capture Reinforcement Points. Once you have control, you can drag units from the reinforcement queue to anywhere within Reinforcement Point radius. This range is designated by a green circle around the reinforcement point.
INFANTRY UNITS

The larger ships and space structures are made up of individual components, called hardpoints, which can be targeted. These may include weapons, shields generators, or engines. Destroying one of these will cause that component to cease functioning.

Infantry units are necessary for capturing reinforcement points. They are also able to take advantage of natural cover on some terrain increasing their offensive and defensive capabilities. Most infantry are able slip by anti-vehicle weaponry, so you can use them to reach objectives that may be inaccessible to your vehicles.
WEATHER

SPACE HAZARDS
ASTEROID FIELDS

Your troops will have to deal with planetary weather. Weather effects cause the following reductions in capabilities: Rain of Ash Infantry sight range reduced. Heavy Rain Laser accuracy reduced. Snowstorm Vehicle sight range reduced.

While small ships can avoid damage from asteroids, larger ships entering into an Asteroid Field will take damage over time.
NEBULAE

Any ship entering a Nebula or Ion Storm will not be able to use any special abilities. In addition to preventing special ability use, Ion Storms will disable shields.

Wind/Sandstorm Rocket accuracy reduced.

Defenders can purchase a Survival Training upgrade at their barracks to negate the effect of weather on their units.
23

22

TERRAIN OBSTACLES GOOD GROUND

Some terrain is impassable by most units, such as trees, water, and cliffs. Hovering units, however, can travel over water, and flying units can travel over all terrain. Infantry units can take advantage of strategically defensive areas on the map by activating their Take Cover ability. Units enhanced by their position on Good Ground will appear green and receive a bonus to their offensive and defensive abilities.

ECONOMY

NOTE ON SKIRMISH PLAY

In skirmish games, you slowly gain credits over time. You can increase the rate of credit production by capturing mining build sites and resource pads.

BUILDING UNITS

Unlike Campaign or Galactic Conquest, in Skirmish mode you construct units during the tactical battle. To construct a unit, select a structure and choose a unit to build from the production bar. When unit construction is complete the unit will be added to the reinforcement queue. To bring the new unit into the battle, drag it from the queue like any reinforcement.

TECHNOLOGY LEVEL

To increase your technology level in Skirmish battles, click on your command center and choose the technology level upgrade. This applies to both the Empire and the Rebels. As your technology level increases, new units and upgrades become available at your structures. You can save or load the game at any time by pressing the main menu button, or the ESC key, and choosing Save Game or Load Game. The game will also autosave periodically to retain your progress.

SAVING AND LOADING THE GAME

INDIGENOUS FORCES

Many planets are home to various indigenous species. Some of the intelligent life forms will be friendly toward your faction, allowing you to take control of them and use them as your own. Others may be friendly to your enemy, or hostile to all factions. For more information, see Indigenous Forces, page 55.

GARRISON UNITS

In campaigns and scenarios, many structures on land and in space automatically produce garrison units. These are bonus units that are not affected by the population cap. When a garrison unit is destroyed, the structure produces a replacement. Garrison units are not produced in skirmish games. (See Garrison Units chart in Appendix on page 47.) Many planets feature structures that either faction can claim. Controlling these structures can be the key to controlling the map. For example, finding a sensor array will completely dispel the fog of war, allowing you to see all your enemy movements. Capturing a turbolaser tower will allow you to obliterate enemy vehicles from a great distance.

TECHNOLOGY LEVEL
As your factions technology level increases, new advanced units and structures will become available for you to build. For complete information regarding your factions technology, click on the droid advisor and choose Tech Tree. As your technology level increases, you will be able to upgrade your space stations. This will not only allow you to build new starships, it will also increase your galactic unit capacity. Also, upgraded space stations offer much greater defense for your planet. Increasing your technology level may also attract new hero characters to your ranks. The heroes that join your faction after an upgrade will vary depending on the scenario. After a technology upgrade, check the hero icons on the Galactic Map for new additions.

UNITS AND STRUCTURES

UPGRADING SPACE STATIONS

ACQUIRING NEW HEROES

All units have strengths and weaknesses that you must take into account when forming your strategies. For your reference a chart detailing unit tactical strategies in both land and space battles. has been included with the game. You can also find this important information to help you plan your strategies by placing the mouse cursor over a unit to get a tool tip. These tool tips will show you what the units are strong against, and what they are weak against. You will show you see clearly what enemy units the unit is strong and against, and what they are weak against. A reference card detailing this information has been included with the game. This, combined with the planets weather effects, will help you determine your strategy. Most units have one or more special abilities, which can be activated by clicking on the Special ability icon in the Command Bar, or right clicking on the unit during a land or space battle itself. Some abilities may need to recharge after use. While the ability is recharging, its icon will glow. Once the icon has returned to normal you may use the ability again. Place the mouse cursor over the ability icon on the Command Bar for more information.

These special unit types can be found in either the service of the Empire or the Rebellion. FLEET COMMANDER FIELD COMMANDER BOUNTY HUNTER SMUGGLER
Fleet Commanders improve the combat health and sight range of all space units under their command. Field Commanders improve the combat health and sight range of all ground units under their command. For a price, Bounty Hunters will track down fugitives and eliminate heroes without initiating a tactical battle. On the Galactic Map, drag a Bounty Hunter to the neutralize hero slot beside a planet and pay the fee to take advantage of their services. To steal credits from an enemy planet, drag a smuggler on the Galactic Map into the steal credits slot beside a planet. At the end of each Galactic Day you will receive credits from your smuggler on the enemy planet.

SPECIAL UNITS

SPECIAL STRUCTURES
These special structures may be used by either the Empire or the Rebellion. POWER GENERATOR
Power Generators keep communications arrays, base shields, turbolaser towers and mining facilities functioning, and are are built automatically at your base.

SHIELD GENERATOR (CoMar Weapons SLD-14 Shield Generator) MINING FACILITY (CMC-22 Mining Facility)

Shield Generators prevent orbital bombardments and energy attacks directly on the base it protects. It does not prevent enemies from entering. Shield Generators require a power generator to operate. The Mining Facility can extract almost any precious resource as raw material. These buildings provide a substantial boost to credit income.

TURBOLASER TOWER (Taim & Bak XX-10 Turbolaser Tower) COMMUNICATIONS ARRAY (MicroThrust Processors Communications Array)

The XX-10 is a surface weapon that will automatically track and fire at enemy units. It is highly effective against vehicles, but inaccurate when targeting smaller infantry units. The Communications Array transmits battlefield information and radar locations to the troops, revealing more information on the mini-map.

SWAMP SPEEDER (Infantry Support Platform Speeder) SKIFF BRIGADE

The Swamp Speeder is a repulsor lift vehicle that can travel over water. Its sensors allow it to hunt units wherever they may be on the map. These fast moving vehicles make short work of enemy infantry and can be used to supplement your scouts.

ORBITAL LONG RANGE SCANNER (Loronar Corporation OLR Scanner) CANTINA

The Orbital Long Range Scanner detects ships in hyperspace over many light years distance providing advance warning of approaching enemy fleets. Smugglers and Mercenaries are often found here. Cantinas can only be built on Abregado-rae, Atzerri, Corellia, Nal Hutta, Ryloth, and Tatooine.

POD WALKER (All Terrain Attack Pod) IPV (IPV 1 Imperial Patrol Vessel) PIRATE ASSAULT FIGHTER

The AT-AP is a light scout walker with a single laser cannon that slices through enemy infantry. These lightly armored pirate cruisers can enhance their weapon power to destroy enemy fighters. These well shielded fighters are ideal for neutralizing enemy bombers, but lack the firepower to counter larger ships.

HUTT PALACE

Bounty hunters can be found here. The palace will reveal commander units above the planet. Hutt Palaces can only be built on Atzerri, Nal Hutta, Ryloth, and Tatooine.

BACTA HEALING STATION (Zaltin Bacta Corporation Field Bacta Tank) REPAIR STATION (Loratus Manufacturing Automated Repair Droid)

Bacta, a synthetic chemical developed from an ancient remedy to heal all but the most serious of wounds, is automatically dispensed to any friendly infantry units nearby. The Automated Repair Droid can repair damage to any friendly vehicles in the area.

PIRATE INTERCEPTOR FRIGATE

SENSOR NODE (MicroThrust Processors X2-a Series Sensor Node) MERCENARY OUTFITTER

Sensor nodes can be placed in the battlefield to monitor locations for any kind of activity. Field commanders in need of an edge can purchase available equipment upgrades here.

Add these ships to your fleet to counter enemy corvettes and fighters. Boost their weapon power to do maximum damage to enemy craft.

MISSILE DEFENSE SATELLITE (Corporate Sector Authority Md-12 Satellite Platform)

The Missile Defense Satellite is armed with missile launchers that target mid-sized ships, causing a considerable amount of damage.
38 39

LASER DEFENSE SATELLITE (Corporate Sector Authority Ld-12 Satellite Platform)


These facilities found in asteroid fields substantially increase credit income.

SECTION 6

Armed with laser cannons, it can tracking and fire upon fighters and smaller ships.

PLANET FEATURES
Each planet features a number of unique land and space attributes that will affect its value in your overall strategy. Zoom in on a planet from the Galactic Map, or use Map Filters for more information. All planets include a space tactical map where battle may occur. A space station may be constructed above any planet.

ASTEROID MINING FACILITY (Corellia Mining Corporation CMC-A14 Mining Facility) MERCHANT SPACE DOCK
Special space units can be purchased from these small orbital stations during skirmish battles.

RESOURCE PAD (Corellia Mining Corporation CMC-RP05 Resource Pad) ABANDONED HEAVY FACTORY ABANDONED SENSOR ARRAY
If you capture this structure you can use it to produce heavy vehicles for your faction.

SPACE FEATURES

Both the Rebellion and the Empire use Resource Pads to quickly mine raw materials to sell off for credits. They are not as efficient as full-sized Mining Facilities.

Space tactical maps include different hazards such as asteroids, nebulae, and ion storms. Different planets permit different levels of space station upgrades. All planets include two areas where space structures can be constructed.

Capturing a sensor array will reveal a great deal of information on the mini-map, including enemy positions.

All planets include three space areas that can contain an unlimited number of units. Most planets include a land tactical map where battle may occur.

The galaxy is teeming with life, some friendly, some hostile. Creatures such as Wampas, the Sarlacc, rancors, and others may encounter your troops. Always keep them in mind when planning your strategy to avoid losing troops to a hungry creature during battle. Pirates can often be found piloting a variety of ships and vehicles like frigates, fighters, and skiffs in addition to fighting as foot soldiers. They occasionally take control of planets and establish asteroid bases and land bases. While not as well armed as the Empire or the Rebels, the pirates are fierce combatants that will challenge either side for control of a planet. You can take control of pirate technology by completing some missions, or by purchasing units at a pirate structure in a skirmish battle. Many planets have sentient species inhabiting them; they may decide to aid your forces. You can control friendly indigenous forces as though they were your own troops. Indigenous forces do not count toward the population cap. They make excellent scouts and advance units, and can be used for diversionary tactics as well. See page 55 for more information. Indigenous structures automatically generate indigenous troops each time a group is defeated. The structure will continue to generate troops until it is destroyed.

CREATURES

LAND FEATURES

Different planets have different sized tactical maps, including different terrain. Each planet features its own weather effects which may penalize some units. Many planets feature indigenous forces which may be friendly, hostile, or neutral (see chart on page 55). Planets with a land tactical map can contain ten standard units on the surface.

PIRATE FORCES

Planets with a land tactical map will include two to eight areas for building structures on the surface. Planets give special bonuses to the faction that controls them. Some planets give bonuses only to a specific faction. See page 52 in the Appendix for more information.

MULTIPLAYER GAME OPTIONS


STARTING CREDITS CAMPAIGN OPTIONS

MULTIPLAYER
There are four different ways to play a multiplayer game:

GAME MODES
CAMPAIGN

Determines the number of credits each faction begins with.

STARTING TECH LEVEL MAX TECH LEVEL AUTO RESOLVE

Two players battle head-to-head on a custom Galactic Map, taking over planets and vying for control of the galaxy. You can win the game either by conquering all the planets in the galaxy, or by killing the enemys leader (Mon Mothma or Emperor Palpatine). Depending on the size of the galaxy you choose, games may be short and intense, or epic in scope. You can save and load your Multiplayer campaign, so games can take as long as you want them to. Land Skirmish has all the features of a single player skirmish battle, but with up to four Empire and four Rebel players (Human or AI). The two teams battle it out to see who will wipe out the enemy and their base first. In Space Skirmish, up to four Empire and four Rebel players (Human or AI) battle to defeat the enemys space station and fleets. There are resources and pirate stations located in the asteroid fields that can turn the tide of the battle. Work together with your teammates to become the dominant space fleet. Land Control is like Land Skirmish, but instead of trying to wipe out the enemy units and their base, you need to capture all of the reinforcement points in order to win. Two teams with up to four players each battle for control of the map until one team has taken control of all of the territory.

Sets the initial technology level for each faction. Sets the final technology level that can be achieved in the scenario. Sets the conditions under which battles will be resolved automatically. You can set it to Ask before each battle, or Always Auto Resolve. NOTE: Auto Resolve is only available in Campaign mode.

This Agreement is governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California as such laws are applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents, and you hereby consent to personal jurisdiction in California. This Agreement will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded. You and LucasArts each agree that any claim or controversy arising out of this Agreement or the Software shall be settled by expedited binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Such arbitration shall take place in Marin County, California, and you waive any claim that such forum is inconvenient. Any such claim or controversy shall be arbitrated solely on an individual basis and shall not be consolidated with a claim of any other party. The arbitrator may not change the terms of this Agreement. The arbitrator may award injunctive or other equitable relief to enforce the terms hereof; provided, however, that no injunctive or equitable relief may be awarded that would enjoin or impair LucasArts rights or ability to distribute or otherwise market, advertise, promote or exploit the Software. If it is judicially determined that

any claim or controversy arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Software cannot be settled by expedited binding arbitration as noted above, then you agree that any such claims or controversies shall be brought and maintained in the state courts located within the County of Marin, State of California or the federal courts of the Northern District of California, and you waive any claim that either such forum is inconvenient. The foregoing shall not preclude LucasArts from seeking any injunctive or other relief for protection of LucasArts intellectual property rights or similar rights in any court of competent jurisdiction. Because LucasArts would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this Agreement were not specifically enforced, you agree that LucasArts shall be entitled, without bond, other security or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as LucasArts may otherwise have under applicable laws. The prevailing party in any action to enforce this Agreement shall be entitled to recover costs and expenses including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys fees. LucasArts shall have the right, but not the obligation, to defend or settle, at its option, any action or proceeding arising from a claim that your permitted use of the Software infringes or misappropriates any patent, copyright, or other ownership of a third party. You agree to provide LucasArts with written notice of any such claim within ten (10) business days of your first knowledge thereof and to provide reasonable assistance in the defense of such claim. LucasArts shall have sole discretion and control over the defense or settlement of such claim, unless it declines to defend or settle such claim, in which case you are free to pursue such course of action as you reasonably determine. LucasArts is under no obligation hereunder to indemnify or hold you harmless with respect to any actions, proceedings or claims. In the event of such a claim, or if LucasArts believes such a claim is likely, LucasArts may: (i) procure for you the right to continue using the Software; (ii) modify the Software so that it becomes non-infringing; or, (iii) terminate this Agreement. You agree to comply with any court judgment or other conditions imposed on you or LucasArts as a result of an allegation of patent or copyright infringement (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise), whether or not such judgment or conditions contradict the conditions of this Agreement, including without limitation, ceasing use of the Software. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the validity and enforceability of the remainder of this Agreement shall in no way be affected or impaired thereby and such provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent possible so as to effect the intent of the parties and shall be reformed without further action by the parties to the extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable. LucasArts failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive LucasArts right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right hereunder preclude further exercise of any other right hereunder. This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and LucasArts with respect to the subject matter hereof. Except as provided herein, this Agreement may not be amended except in a writing signed by both parties; provided, however, that LucasArts has the right, without notice and/or without a writing signed by both parties, to amend this Agreement in connection with any modifications or updates to the Software.

63

The license term shall commence as of the date you install or otherwise use the Software. You may terminate this license by disposing of the Software and erasing any components residing on computer equipment. Without prejudice to any other rights of LucasArts, this Agreement will terminate automatically if you fail to comply with its terms and conditions. In such event, you must destroy all copies of the Software and all its component parts. Your disposal or destruction of the Software and any component parts must be done in accordance with applicable law. Except for the license granted herein and as expressly provided herein, the terms of this Agreement will survive termination.

If the Software is acquired under agreement with the U.S. government or any agency or instrumentality thereof or contractor therewith, it is acquired as commercial computer software subject to the provisions hereof, as specified in 48 CFR 12.212 of the FAR and, if acquired for Department of Defense (DoD) units, 48 CFR 227-7202 of the DoD FAR Supplement, or sections succeeding thereto.

New Levels may be subsequently delivered or made accessible through an electronic update. New Levels may be permitted by LucasArts, in its sole discretion, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the following additional conditions: (1) New Levels may work only if used in combination with the retail version of the Software, and may not work with any demo or Original Equipment Manufacturer (generally known as OEM) versions of the Software.

(3) New Levels must not contain any illegal, scandalous, illicit, defamatory, libelous, or objectionable material (as may be determined by LucasArts in its sole discretion), or any material that infringes any trademarks, copyrights, protected works, publicity, proprietary, or other rights of any third party or of LucasArts.

(4) New Levels may not include any LucasArts sound effects or music files or portions thereof. (5) New Levels must identify in every description file, on-line description, read-me, and in comments in the New Level code (if new code is added): (a) the name, address, and e-mail address of the levels creators, and (b) the following disclaimer: THIS LEVEL IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY LUCASARTS, A DIVISION OF LUCASFILM ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY LTD.

INTRODUCTION
In Star Wars: Empire at War, you controlled an entire war for the Star Wars galaxy as the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire. Now, face off against them as the criminal faction in Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption. This expansion pack presents a new, unique point of view of the Galactic Civil War. For the first time ever, you play as Tyber Zann, an up-and-coming criminal genius. Corruption and villainy run through your veins and drive you to become the most notorious criminal leader in the galaxy.

Campaign Experience Tyber Zanns rise to power as a galactic crime lord through a series of story based missions, spreading corruption and fighting battles on land and in space. Guide the Zann Consortium from nothing to the inevitable final conflict, acquiring forbidden technology, new heroes and planets along the way. Galactic Conquest Choose from a number of different scenarios. Each features galaxies of different sizes, technology levels and starting credits. This game mode allows players the opportunity to conquer the galaxy any way they want without being locked into a specific story line. Skirmish Choose from a number of different space or land maps to conduct a battle on. This game mode allows the player the opportunity to play a single battle without having to conquer the entire Star Wars galaxy.

GETTING STARTED
Tutorials Even if you already know how to play Star Wars: Empire at War, we strongly suggest you play through Tutorial #8. Not only will you be introduced to the new game features, you will also be directly involved in the unfolding rivalry between Tyber Zann and Jabba the Hutt.

SECTiON 2 New features & Changes


The Zann Consortium Faction
(Underworld) A wretched hive of scum and villainy, the Consortium lies, cheats, bribes, kidnaps, extorts, steals and fights to achieve victory. Led by Tyber Zann, the Consortiums goal is not to conquer the entire galaxy, but to own it. The Consortium employs ships and vehicles never before seen in the Star Wars universe. They use outlawed black market technology and spread their web of corruption throughout the galaxy.

NEW FEaTUrES & CHaNgES


Piracy Piracy requires a special space combat mission where the Consortium establishes piracy at a planet by eliminating a number of enemy space forces. Requirements: Credits available to expend on the operation and a Consortium hero. Benefits: New enemy ship type available for the Consortium to build and use in combat. Unlocks Black Market and Slavery corruption options. Kidnapping Kidnapping requires a special tactical mission to capture a target. Requirements: Credits available to expend on the operation and a Consortium hero. Benefits: The Consortium receives a large sum of credits. Unlocks Bribery corruption option. Racketeering Once unlocked, the Consortium can set up an extortion racket at a planet ensuring the right people get a cut of any action resulting from combat. Requirements: At least one Intimidation mission completed. Mercenary Assault Squads available to commit and credits available to expend on the operation. Benefits: The Consortium receives a larger stream of credits than normal. Bribery Once unlocked, the Consortium can establish a bribery ring with officials at a planet for special favors and information.

Consortium Story Campaign


Forces of Corruption offers an all new story-driven campaign that follows the exploits of criminal genius Tyber Zann and his rise to become the galaxys most notorious criminal leader.

Corruption
Corruption is a brand new game mechanic that gives the player a unique set of options to spread criminal influence throughout the galaxy. The Consortium uses Defilers to spread corruption. Defilers can be recruited at any Consortium controlled planet with a Consortium Palace structure. Moving a Defiler to the Spread Corruption slot of any enemy planet begins the corruption process. There are a total of eight corruption options to choose from which vary depending on planets and prerequisites. The 3 most basic corruption options (Intimidation, Piracy and Kidnapping) require a special tactical mission while the others do not. The eight corruption options are as follows: Intimidation Intimidation requires a special ground combat mission in which the Consortium goes to the planet specifically to intimidate a senior planetary official. Requirements: Credits available to expend on the operation and a Consortium hero. Benefits: Permanently removes the special abilities of that planet. Unlocks the Racketeering corruption option.

Requirements: At least one Kidnapping mission completed and credits available to expend on the operation. Benefits: Enemy bases no longer produce garrisons during combat. Consortium is alerted to enemy fleet movements at the corrupted planet and nearby systems. Unlocks the Corrupt Militia corruption option.

SECTiON 2
Corrupt Militia Once unlocked, the Consortium can establish a militia recruiting drive on the planet. This will cause the indigenous forces on the planet to fight for the Consortium. Requirements: At least one Bribery mission completed and credits available to expend on the operation. Benefits: Indigenous units ally with the Consortium during combat on that planet. If corruption is removed from the world, the planet will revolt and become neutral. Black Market Once unlocked, the Consortium can establish a Black Market at a planet making all sorts of illicit technology available for purchase. Requirements: At least one Piracy mission completed and credits available to expend on the operation. Benefits: The Consortium can purchase outlawed technology for use as special abilities on combat units. Slavery Once unlocked, the Consortium can force the local population at an enslaved planet to become combat units for the Consortium to use anywhere in the galaxy. Requirements: At least one Piracy mission completed and credits available to expend on the operation. Benefits: The indigenous population from enslaved planets can be recruited as combat units for the Consortium.

NEW FEaTUrES & CHaNgES


The Black Market
The Consortium accesses the Black Market to purchase outlawed technology for use in combat as special abilities or unit modes. The technology available differs between the Rebels and the Empire. The Consortium should establish a black market on both Rebel and Imperial worlds. To access the Black Market, send Tyber Zann, Urai Fen or Silri to the Buy slot at a Black Market planet to purchase new technology. The Black Market Window will appear with an assortment of technology available for purchase. You will also see technology that is not yet available or has already been purchased. NOTE The price of Black Market technology varies in relation to the tech levels of the Rebellion and Empire. It is also best to have more than one Black Market available in order to have a variety of technology available. To see a list of planets where the Black Market can be established at see page 30 for the Planetary Corruption chart.

Advanced Base Layout


The Advanced Base Layout screen allows players to organize troops and structures by moving them into various tactical positions on the battlefield. Entering the Advanced Base Layout screen is not required. However, organizing your troops and structures strategically allows for greater defense and tactics. To view the Advanced Base Layout, click on the Base Layout button above the ground unit slots while zoomed into a planet in galactic mode. Using the Advanced Base Layout to Defend a Planet To move troops and structures, simply left-click on the unit icon and hold, then drag and drop it to the desired location. Using the Advanced Base Layout to Spy on Enemy Bases The Advanced Base Layout can also be used to see where the enemy has placed its troops and base structures. You can only do this on corrupted planets. To spy on the enemys base layout, click on the Base Layout button above the ground unit slots while zoomed into a corrupted planet. NOTE Both the Rebellion and Empire can also use the Advanced Base Layout screen for defensive layout and spying as well. In order to use the Advanced Base Layout Screen for spying, the Empire must send a probe droid and the Rebellion must send C-3PO and R2-D2 to the enemy planet.

Corruption Notes
The Empire and Rebellion are able to detect Consortium corruption and have the ability to remove it. However, both receive benefits from corruption such as cheaper production, faster build times and smugglers that do not time out when siphoning credits on corrupted worlds.

Removing Corruption
Some Empire and Rebel heroes can remove corruption at the Galactic level from affected planets. This is accomplished by dragging them to the Remove Corruption slot on a corrupted planet in Galactic mode.


Outposts

SECTiON 2

NEW FEaTUrES & CHaNgES


Multiplayer Updates
Players can now pit all three factions against each other in three way faction battles or test their skills fighting the same faction against itself in Mirror Play. Players who are members of clans will now also be able to fight for their clan to attain the top slot on a new clan ladder! See page 26 for more details.

In Skirmish mode, players can now capture Outpost Build Pads. When captured, Outposts have three building options available. Two of the options are shared between factions, while the third option is faction specific. They are as follows: Mining Facility Produces a fast credit income stream. They can also be upgraded to further increase the speed of credit income whereas Resource Pads cannot. Hutt Palace Allows the recruiting of several mercenary units that are not available to any faction. They are the Swamp Speeder, Pod Walker and Skiff. Repulsorlift Jammer (Consortium) Prevents enemy repulsorlift vehicles from operating by effectively sticking them to the ground. Consortium units are not affected. Uplink Station (Rebellion) Allows the Rebellion to ping sensors on any area of the map to remove the fog of war. This lasts for a brief period of time. Magnapulse Cannon (Empire) A cannon that fires blasts of plasma at enemy vehicles effectively disabling them for a brief period of time. Imperial units are not affected. NOTE Mining Facilities and Hutt Palaces are no longer free standing structures as they were in Star Wars: Empire at War and have been moved to the outpost as universal build options.

New Maps and Updated Maps


There are a variety of new skirmish maps available for space and land combat. Many of the older maps from Star Wars: Empire at War have also been updated and included as part of this expansion as well. The new skirmish maps can be found in the skirmish options screen and in the host game setup screen for multiplayer. There are also 6 new galactic conquest campaigns unique to this expansion pack. The new galactic conquest campaigns can be found in the galactic conquest options screen and in the host game setup screen for multiplayer.

New Units
In addition to the new units that have been added specifically for the Consortium, several new units have also been added for both the Empire and Rebellion. For a complete list of new units see page 12.

Other Updates
Consortium Technology Progression
In Galactic Conquest mode, the Consortium gains access to all ships, vehicles and units by upgrading their space stations and owning the appropriate base buildings on planets. Unlike the Rebellion and Empire, the Consortium units do not initially have any special abilities until they are upgraded with the appropriate Black Market technology. In Skirmish mode the Consortium upgrades in the same way as the Rebellion and Empire for balancing purposes.

Orbital Bombardment
Players can now call down an orbital bombardment during land battles, if they have capital ships in orbit above the planet. In land skirmish mode, orbital bombardments must be purchased at the players base. On the tactical map, there will be a large red button in the command bar. Clicking the button will allow the placement of a large targeting cursor on the map. Select a target and the orbital bombardment will begin. Orbital Bombardment does not affect your own units.

Pathfinder Slot

The pathfinder slot is a gold box found in the top left corner of each fleet slot. The unit that is placed in the pathfinder slot will be the first unit to enter tactical battle. All remaining forces will need to be brought into battle via reinforcement.

Game Replay
Game Replay files can only be saved after multiplayer skirmish games. You can find the Save Replay button in the Battle Summary screen after a skirmish game has been completed. To watch a replay file go to the Load Game menu, select the Show Recorded Games checkbox, select the replay file you want to watch and press the Load Button.

Bunkers
Bunkers give more tactical opportunities on the battlefield, allowing you to hold ground and fortify key areas on the map. Only infantry and heroes can occupy bunkers. To place units into a bunker select up to five infantry units and then move the cursor over the bunker. The cursor will change to a down arrow indicating that the bunker can be occupied. Right clicking will then move the selected units into the bunker. All bunkers display red dots above them indicating how many units are inside. The red dots are also visible to the enemy. Selecting an occupied bunker will display a list of units occupying it in the command bar. Clicking on a unit icon in the command bar will eject the unit individually. To eject all the units at the same time, select and right click the bunker. When bunkers are destroyed, all units occupying it are damaged and ejected.

LucasArts will mail a replacement to you. In the event that the Software is no longer available, LucasArts retains the right to substitute a similar product of equal or greater value. This warranty is not applicable and shall be void if the defect has arisen through abuse, mistreatment, neglect, or from normal wear and tear. LucasArts has no obligation to provide support, maintenance, upgrades, modifications or new releases under this Agreement. You expressly acknowledge and agree that use of the Software is at your sole risk. Except for the limited ninety (90) day warranty on the media set forth above, the Software and any related documentation or materials are provided AS IS and without warranty of any kind.

RELIEF, TO ENFORCE THE TERMS HEREOF. THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY IN THIS AND OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THE ALLOCATION OF RISK HEREIN ARE AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES, WITHOUT WHICH LUCASARTS WOULD NOT HAVE ENTERED INTO THIS AGREEMENT. LUCASARTS PRICING REFLECTS THIS ALLOCATION OF RISK AND THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SPECIFIED HEREIN. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS DEPENDING ON THE LAWS IN YOUR STATE. This Agreement is governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California as such laws are applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents, and you hereby consent to personal jurisdiction in California. This Agreement will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded. You and LucasArts each agree that any claim or controversy arising out of this Agreement or the Software shall be settled by expedited binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Such arbitration shall take place in Marin County, California, and you waive any claim that such forum is inconvenient. Any such claim or controversy shall be arbitrated solely on an individual basis and shall not be consolidated with a claim of any other party. The arbitrator may not change the terms of this Agreement. The arbitrator may award injunctive or other equitable relief to enforce the terms hereof; provided, however, that no injunctive or equitable relief may be awarded that would enjoin or impair LucasArts rights or ability to distribute or otherwise market, advertise, promote or exploit the Software. If it is judicially determined that any claim or controversy arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Software cannot be settled by expedited binding arbitration as noted above, then you agree that any such claims or controversies shall be brought and maintained in the state courts located within the County of Marin, State of California or the federal courts of the Northern District of California, and you waive any claim that either such forum is inconvenient. The foregoing shall not preclude LucasArts from seeking any injunctive or other relief for protection of LucasArts intellectual property rights or similar rights in any court of competent jurisdiction. Because LucasArts would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this Agreement were not specifically enforced, you agree that LucasArts shall be entitled, without bond, other security or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as LucasArts may otherwise have under applicable laws. The prevailing party in any action to enforce this Agreement shall be entitled to recover costs and expenses including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys fees. LucasArts shall have the right, but not the obligation, to defend or settle, at its option, any action or proceeding arising from a claim that your permitted use of the Software infringes or misappropriates any patent, copyright, or other ownership of a third party. You agree to provide LucasArts with written notice of any such claim within ten (10) business days of your first knowledge thereof and to provide reasonable assistance in the defense of such claim. LucasArts shall have sole discretion and control over the defense or settlement of such claim, unless it declines to defend or settle such claim, in which case you are free to pursue such course of action as you reasonably determine. LucasArts is under no obligation hereunder to indemnify or hold you harmless with respect to any actions, proceedings or claims. In the event of such a claim, or if LucasArts believes such a claim is likely, LucasArts may: (i) procure for you the right to continue using the Software; (ii) modify the Software so that it becomes non-infringing; or, (iii) terminate this Agreement. You agree to comply with any court judgment or other conditions imposed on you or LucasArts as a result of an allegation of patent or copyright infringement (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise), whether or not such judgment or conditions contradict the conditions of this Agreement, including without limitation, ceasing use of the Software. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the validity and enforceability of the remainder of this

SOFTWarE liCENSE aNd liMiTEd WarraNTy

Agreement shall in no way be affected or impaired thereby and such provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent possible so as to effect the intent of the parties and shall be reformed without further action by the parties to the extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable. LucasArts failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive LucasArts right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right hereunder preclude further exercise of any other right hereunder. This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and LucasArts with respect to the subject matter hereof. Except as provided herein, this Agreement may not be amended except in a writing signed by both parties; provided, however, that LucasArts has the right, without notice and/or without a writing signed by both parties, to amend this Agreement in connection with any modifications or updates to the Software. The license term shall commence as of the date you install or otherwise use the Software. You may terminate this license by disposing of the Software and erasing any components residing on computer equipment.
