Good luck ignoring anything related to the Star Wars franchise this year (or the next few years), because it certainly isn't going anywhere anytime soon. However, for the big Star Wars fans out there, the last few weeks have been good to them. At least, when it comes to game re-releases.
GOG.com kicked things off in January by adding several Star Wars games, as part of their partnership with Disney Interactive, including the digital debuts of Star Wars: X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, Star Wars Rebellion and a few others. Scrolling through GOG's Star Wars catalog, you come to realize that quite a few games set in that galaxy far, far away have come out over the years.
This time around, it's Humble Bundle that's giving the sci-fi series some love by releasing a brand new, Star Wars-centric games bundle. Officially known as the Star Wars Humble Bundle, some may expect a bit of overlap between GOG's offerings and what's part of this bundle. Surprisingly, only Star Wars: Empire at War Gold Pack is shared between the two, thereby making it even harder to pass over it.
Nine games come in the bundle today, and as per the usual Humble Bundle rules, people can pay whatever amount they want for it. That said, paying over a certain amount will still result in more games.
These games are as follows:
- Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
- Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
- Star Wars: Dark Forces
Pay more than the average price ($10) to get:
- Star Wars: Republic Commando
- Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
- Star Wars Battlefront II
Finally, paying more than $12 and proving that you really want all nine games will unlock:
- Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
- Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition
- Star Wars: Empire at War Gold Pack
If the above wasn't enough to warrant the $12+ investment (although it should), even more games are planned to be added soon. As said at the top, a lot of Star Wars games have come out, covering just about every genre possible.
Furthermore, the money put into the bundle can be donated to Star Wars: Force for Change. Todd Dubester, VP of Global Distribution Strategy & Business Development at Disney, noted that this bundle is a chance for fans to "give back," if only a little bit.
"Adding these classic Star Wars games to Humble Bundle allows us to bring longtime fan favorites to a new audience, while also offering an opportunity to give back."
Similar to GOG's addition of Star Wars games, there's currently no word on what games will be added, or when. However, the Star Wars Humble Bundle is scheduled to run from today until Tuesday, February 17, 2015. Those two weeks should be more than enough time to decide what this bundle is worth to you.Besides, don't you want to be on the top contributor's list with Kyle Katarn? No, really. He's currently number 2 on the list.
