Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection: The Two Original Games on New Platforms [VIDEO]

No, we’re not talking about the two Star Wars: Battlefront titles released in the 2010s, but the two released in the mid-2000s!


Aspyr is not only working on Tomb Raider these days (we’ve already discussed a rumor that the fourth installment, Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation, could get a remaster), but they’re also heavily involved with the Star Wars IP. The company has announced that the Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection is coming, with Jabba’s Castle as a bonus map for the first installment, and Bespin: Cloud City, Rhen Var: Port, Rhen Var: Citadel, and Yavin 4: Arena for the second. The second game adds two bonus characters in the form of Asajj Ventress and Kit Fisto, slightly expanding the content of the pack.

In Star Wars: Battlefront’s story mode, you’ll relive iconic battles from the first six films, and in the second, you’ll witness the rise of Darth Vader’s 501st Legion of Stormtroopers. Up to sixty-four of you can battle each other online (presumably on current-gen consoles and PC), piloting iconic vehicles (AT-STs, AT-RTs) but also taking to the skies in air battles with legendary starships (TIE Fighters, X-Wings). Hero Assault has been expanded to include all “ground” maps (Death Star, Kashyyyk, Kamino, Naboo), which was not possible before. Mace Windu, Yoda, Luke Skywalker are among the heroes that can be controlled, but the bad guys are not left out either, so Darth Maul, General Grievous or Darth Vader, for example, can be used in the battles.

You won’t have to wait long for the cross-generational Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection. It will be released on March 14 for PlayStation 5, Xbox consoles, PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The two games, developed by Pandemic Studios, were originally released in 2004 and 2005 (on consoles for PlayStation 2 and Xbox), so it’s understandable that they’re being released on modern platforms. I wonder if DICE’s games will get a similar re-release later on…?
