2004’s Star Wars Battlefront Available Now on Steam and GOG

Star Wars Battlefront

Star Wars Battlefront from Pandemic was released back in 2004, and now it is available for PC players to buy it on Steam or GOG. The surprise addition of the 14-year-old shooter game was not expected at all, even though Star Wars Battlefront 2 is on Steam.

The digital games bought from either of the stores will come complete with multiplayer, although the standard edition requires players to join either via LAN or direct using IP addresses.

The original title, although multiplayer focused, also features a single-player mode. The multiplayer option allows up to 64 players. Previously, on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions of the game, only featured 32 players. In other words, the PC version is the ideal choice for the current release.

Star Wars Battlefront is the original Battlefront and does not mean the 2015 reboot of the series, which also has the same title. This original game was released back in 2004 and was the start of the series that we see today.

The game is available for players from both Steam or GOG, with the launch price of $8.49 on any platform of choice. GOG, on the other hand, will be hosting a Star Wars sale next week, where you can get discounts on classics ranging from TIE Fighter and Dark Forces to Episode 1: Racer, Knights of the Old Republic, and the Lega Star Wars titles.

For those interested in playing the game on a console, the title was also recently released on the Xbox Live Marketplace, in April of this year, for $5.99.

It is worth mentioning that the 2005’s Battlefront 2 is also available on GOG. So you can now get both the classic service through the service. It will be on sale for the Star Wars day sale and will be available at a discounted price of $3.49. The sale will run through May 9, so you have just under a week to get your hands on the titles.
