Aspyr Media on Thursday announced the release of an update to Star Wars: Empire at War, its recently released real-time strategy game set in the Star Wars universe. The new version, 1.05 Rev A, is available for download to all users.
Star Wars: Empire at War is set in the time depicted in the “original” Star Wars trilogy, reliving the events that occur a few years before the movie “Episode IV: A New Hope.” Users can play either as the Rebel Alliance or as the Galactic Empire, building and setting up ground and space forces. You can bring in heroes to help turn the tide of battle as you engage in epic conflicts on planets you’ve seen in the movies, like Yavin IV, Tatooine and Dagobah.
The 1.05 Rev A update fixes an issue where there was no discernible difference between low and medium water detail, adds support for Pixel Shader 3.0, and enables the heat distortion and soft shadows features.
More general information about Star Wars: Empire at War is available directly from Aspyr’s Web site.
