Classic Star Wars Games Now Available On GOG Including Galactic Battlegrounds, X-Wing vs Tie Fighter, Dark Forces, And More
Rejoice, old-school Star Wars fans: GOG.com is now offering several new classic titles from the franchise on its digital store.
Galactic Battlegrounds Saga, X-Wing Alliance, X-Wing vs Tie Fighter: Battle of Power, Dark Forces, Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, and Battlefront II have all been added to GOG's online catalogue, and are available right now.
Six more Lucasfilms games are on the way DRM-free this year, according to a press release, and will release over the next ten days. Today's releases mark the digital premieres of the first three titles, with the others having appeared online in some other form before. Both X-Wing titles are $9.99, Knights of the Old Republic II and Battlefront II are $7.99, Galactic Battlegrounds is $5.99, and Dark Forces is $4.79. A few of those are temporarily discounted, so head over now to take advantage if you're interested!
The newer games are likely familiar to many of you--KotOR II is a great RPG, while Battlefront II was an extremely fun multiplayer shooter in its glory days. Galactic Battlegrounds is a bit older, from 2001, and is a pretty comprehensive real-time strategy title. X-Wing Alliance and X-Wing vs Tie Fighter: Battle of Power released in 1999 and 1997 respectively--both are space flight sim sequels to the original Star Wars: X-Wing. Dark Forces takes it back the furthest, a first person shooter released in 1995.
