Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance and X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter finally re-released, with more coming

The first wave of classic Star Wars games released on the PC included Star Wars: X-Wing and its sequel, Star Wars: TIE Fighter. That was a great day for fans of the original releases, but there are other games in the series that have long been begging for a re-release as well. And it looks like that day has come.

The following games have been released today on

  • Star Wars: X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter (digital distribution premiere)
  • Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance (digital distribution premiere)
  • Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds (digital distribution premiere)
  • Star Wars Battlefront II
  • Star Wars: Dark Forces
  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords

That's an impressive lineup, especially since it includes three games that have never been released on digital distribution platforms. This is also just the beginning.

"January's lineup again will feature numerous titles available digitally for the first time ever, all optimized for modern operating systems," the press release stated. "As even more Lucasfilm games remain in's pipeline, scheduled for a DRM-free release in the near future, 2015 shapes up to be an exceptional year for classic gaming on"
