Close off a week of Star Wars with bundles from Steam and GOG.com

After the many posts that have appeared on the web to coincide with Star Wars day on May the 4th there’s a small chance you’ve now got a Star Wars themed gaming itch that you need to scratch. If that’s the case then now is the right time to pick up some classic games for a good price.

First up is Steam with three bundles.

  • STAR WARS: Rebel Assault I + II
  • STAR WARS: Rogue Squadron 3D

[UPDATE – Humble Bundle offers versions of these bundles for the same price (they still go through Steam) if you’d like your money to go towards a cause.]

Next is GOG.com who’ve broken their games up into two bundles, similar to what they have previously used in past sales.

Star Wars Saber Bundle at 76% off:

  • STAR WARS – Knights of the Old Republic
  • STAR WARS Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords
  • STAR WARS Republic Commando
  • STAR WARS – Dark Forces
  • STAR WARS Jedi Knight – Dark Forces II
  • STAR WARS Jedi Knight – Jedi Academy
  • STAR WARS Jedi Knight – Mysteries of the Sith
  • STAR WARS Jedi Knight II – Jedi Outcast
  • STAR WARS Empire at War – Gold Pack
  • STAR WARS Starfighter

Star Wars Blaster Bundle at 57% off:

  • STAR WARS: Rebel Assault I + II
  • STAR WARS Galactic Battlegrounds Saga
  • STAR WARS – X-Wing Special Edition
  • STAR WARS: TIE Fighter Special Edition
  • STAR WARS – X-Wing Alliance
  • STAR WARS X-Wing vs TIE Fighter – Balance of Power Campaigns
  • STAR WARS: Rogue Squadron 3D
  • STAR WARS Rebellion

In addition, GOG.com have just released Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire – a multimedia crossover title from 1997 that was also an early title for the Nintendo 64. It’s most memorable for introducing players to a Hoth level that influenced plenty of Star Wars games since. The PC version though is a much better product through its support for 3D graphics cards and use of CGI cutscenes. It can be bought separately and is currently at 20% off.

Depending on which games you want or how much you are wanting to spend, there should be something here for most fans wanting to either take on the Empire or be the face of it. Steam does have the advantage of offering newer titles like The Force Unleashed and Republic Heroes but GOG.com does let you trim unwanted titles from a bundle if you want to spend less or already own some of them.

Both sales end on May 10th.
