Thrawn’s Revenge: Imperial Civil War

Thrawn’s Revenge is a large-scale mod for Empire at War: Forces of Corruption. It includes the events of the Galactic Civil War after Palpatine’s death at Endor, up until the signing of the Pellaeon-Gavrisom treaty. If you own the Steam version of EaW, you will have to complete extra steps to run the mod after installation. Please see the manual for these steps.

They have regular updates and articles on their site that will also keep you updated on what’s happening with the mod, the behind the scenes details that show you they are really behind this project and that is always so great to see from a game mod.
