Ever wanted to command a fleet of Rebel starships ranging from the quick and agile Corellian Corvette to the massive Mon Calamari Cruisers bristling with turbolasers? Or maybe the Empire is better suited to your tastes with their iconic, wedge-shaped Star Destroyers that strike fear into the hearts of millions of citizens in the galaxy far, far away. Well whatever your preference, there is no finer sight than seeing Rebel and Imperial cruisers duke it out in space with fighters and bombers dodging in-and-out of the fray.

Game Description

You are the Supreme Galactic Commander

Star Wars: Empire at War puts the power to command an entire war for the Star Wars galaxy in the hands of players, giving them the freedom to determine how they play the game within completely scalable and accessible gameplay. Set a few years before the events of Episode IV A New Hope, LucasArts’ Empire at War lets players wage war on the ground and in space, as well as experience the creation of the Rebel Alliance, the strengthening of the Empire and the beginnings of the Galactic Civil War.

Using an entirely new game engine created by the Las Vegas-based developer Petroglyph, Empire at War features beautifully rendered land and space battles set on memorable planets such as Yavin IV, Tatooine and Dagobah, as well as never-before-seen environments taken directly from the Star Wars films and expanded universe novels. In the game, players choose to join either the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire, building and setting up tactical forces to unleash upon the enemy in real-time 3D. Memorable Star Wars hero characters can be brought into the action to help turn the tide of the battle as players build, manage and upgrade their space and ground-based units, vehicles, troops and base structures.
