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.
  • Real-time strategy game takes place between the two trilogies through "A New Hope"
  • Play with a multitude of heroes for each side, each with their own abilities
  • Control the battle between Rebel and Empire forces on both land and in space
  • Dual-layered game play requires you to manage both strategic and tactical levels
  • Play campaign across more than 40 planets, or play multiplayer with up to 8 players

  1. RTS with that Star Wars feel
    by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Jun 28th 2015

    Bought the Star Wars Starter pack just for this game. I knew the game had problems with the newer operating systems, but I thought for $5 dollars the other games will soften the blow if it doesn't work. Well it does work on Yosemite 10.3 and have checked out the save problem and I think it's been fixed as I had no problems. Am enjoying this game so far and this in my opinion is the best Star Wars game released.

  3. Best Star Wars Strategy Game
    by thadd, USA - May 31st 2015

    Without doubt, this game is the best star wars real time strategy game. The next one - forces of corruption - builds off this one even better. Highly recommended, lots of fun for strategy minded people. It even throws in a tad of galactic economics and the like.
