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"

  • 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

  1. Crash game
    by geeveedee, Netherlands - Jun 2nd 2014

    I think it's a very nice game, but unplayable after conquering a few planets.

    Loading a saved game crashed the game, trying to reopen the game afterward is useless.

    Don't buy it if you meet the requiremenst for the game, and next to that have a formatted volume -> Mac OS extended (Case sensitive). Because it will have the same result as I had. Too bad
