Aspyr Media Inc. announced Tuesday that it is shipping its Macintosh conversion of
Star Wars Battlefront. The game should hit store shelves by July 23, 2005 for US$49.99.
Star Wars Battlefront lets you relive battles from the original trilogy and “prequel” trilogy of Star Wars films. You can assume the role of one of 20 different soldier types from the four main factions depicted in the movies: the Rebel Alliance, Imperial Army, Clone Army and Droid Army.
You can wield standard and special weapons depending on your role, and you can even take the air and to the ground in different vehicles like the AT-ST, X-Wing, Speeder Bike, even a massive Republic Gunship that can hold five soldiers. You’ll also be able to play on worlds you’ve seen in the films likes Endor, Tatooine, Hoth, Geonosis and Endor.
The game includes single player modes like “Instant Action,” “Galactic Conquest” and “Historical Campaigns.” What’s more, you can also play online — Mac and PC gamers can go head to head through TCP/IP, LAN or GameRanger play.
