Last week EA decided to expand the Origin Access vault right on time for Star Wars day.
May 3rd saw 12 new lightsaber-toting games head to the vault, spanning multiple decades, from Dark Forces to Battlefront II.
The news was revealed in a blog post on the Origin Access update page, where you can peruse each game, from hidden gems like Star Wars Episode 1 Racer to stone-cold classics like Rogue Squadron 3D. Here’s a handy list of what’s available.
- STAR WARS™ Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
- STAR WARS™ Battlefront II (Classic, 2005)
- STAR WARS™ Republic Commando
- STAR WARS™: Rogue Squadron 3D
- STAR WARS™ – Dark Forces
- STAR WARS™ Shadows of the Empire™
- STAR WARS™ X-Wing Alliance
- STAR WARS™ Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith™
- STAR WARS™ Galactic Battlegrounds Saga
- STAR WARS™ Starfighter
- STAR WARS™ Episode I Racer
- STAR WARS™ Rebellion
There’s something for every kind of Star Wars fan in the mix here. At £20 a year it’s a fairly tempting deal, but it’s no Game Pass just yet.
If you were burned by the modern Battlefront games you can jump back into both of the mid-2000s offerings, which still hold up to this day.
The Jedi Knight games are also worth trying if you’re trying to sate your unquenchable thirst for a third-person Star Wars game ahead of Respawn’s Fallen Order.
In any case, it’s a blast from the past that’s worth it if you’re nostalgic or just curious. You can look forward to more news about EA Star Wars games as we approach E3, and specifically, EA’s ‘Play’ conference which is held on June 8-9 right before E3 kicks off.
