Mac game publisher Aspyr Media noted that it’s shipping two new Star Wars-themed games for the Macintosh starting today. Both Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns are shipping to retailers and those consumers who preordered the titles directly from Aspyr. Aspyr previously noted that both these games had gone “gold master,” the final step before the games went into duplication.

Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is a 3D action game based on Quake III Arena technology that puts you in the role of Kyle Katarn, a Jedi-turned-mercenary who must regain his Force powers to protect the interests of the fledgling New Republic. The game features an extensive single-player mission sequence along with multiplayer capabilities that enables PC and Mac gamers to compete against each other in online combat. It runs natively in Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.
Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns is an expansion pack intended for the real time strategy game Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds, released earlier this year for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. Based on the Age of Empires engine, Galactic Battlegrounds puts you in control of one of several different Star Wars factions as you play alone or online in a quest for territorial expansion. You must gather resources and build units. Clone Campaigns adds new features and expands the game with new missions and new units inspired by this year’s release of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. You can replay the original game’s missions using new units and capabilities, as well.
Both games were rated “T” for “Teen” by the ESRB. Clone Campaigns costs US$29.95. The expansion pack requires the original Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds in order to play. Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast costs $49.95.
