Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection Announced

Aspyr and Lucasfilm Games announce the Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection, a revival of the original first- and third-person shooters released a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Okay, it was 2004 and 2005 (as opposed to the 2015 and 2017 follow-ups), and it was this galaxy, so please forgive the forced joke. The re-release is coming on March 14th to PC via Steam as well as to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation5, PlayStation4, and Switch. Word is this will support up to 64-player games on modern platforms, but no other enhancements or updates are mentioned. The Announce Trailer takes a look, showing what appear to be unchanged graphics. The collection also promises additional content and Steam Deck support. Here's more:
This new title brings the original Star Wars™ Battlefront (2004) and Star Wars™ Battlefront II (2005) games to modern platforms with online play for up to 64 players, expansions to Hero Assault mode, and all previously released bonus content. Steam users will also enjoy Steam Deck support.

It’s time to relive intense battles from the Star Wars™ galaxy in the Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection. Jump into thrilling firefights across massive battlefields on the ground, in the air, and in space as the Empire, Rebellion, Republic, and the Separatist Alliance. Choose an array of unique classes, pilot a multitude of vehicles, and play as iconic heroes and villains from multiple eras of the saga in solo, local, and online play.

BF2 is still a ton of fun. And bc it doesn't depend on online servers and has bots, it's still playable 20 years later. I haven't played in a few years, but last time I checked, I had no trouble running it. I wonder what they are adding specifically.

This is way better than the modern monetization vectors that EA released a few years back. Way prettier, but everything else is so far inferior to the 2004-5 games that it's honestly shocking. Trust me - you will forget the dated graphics in about 15 minutes when you realize you are playing Battlefield in Star Wars and this is 100 times more fun than the recent trash EA foisted on us. You don't need to get EA's permission to play it either.
