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. A bit slow...
    by cavallfort, United Kingdom - May 9th 2015

    The game is great - especially if you are a star wras fan! - however, I found it a bit slow and to progress through the missions is a bit too lsow for my taste. Still, if you find it on offer, I would recommend it!

  2. Epic!
    by Dimo269, Italy - May 8th 2015

    If you're a SW fan you simply can't miss this game.

    Your mission is to guide the Rebel Alliance (or th Empire) to the conquest of the most successful sci-fi franchise's fictioanl galaxy. What else is there to say?

  3. Working perfectly
    by eetfukouijaaa, Malaysia - Dec 14th 2014

    I'm on a MBP 13" running 10.10.1 and it runs perfectly. This game has so much depth and a RTS set in the Star Wars universe, what more would you want?
