Apple Previews Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Apple recently added a small feature to their games section that previews the upcoming real-time strategy title Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds. The preview covers all the usual bases, citing Galactic Battlegrounds' use of the Age of Empires II engine as well as discussing the story-based campaign available in the game:

For example, one campaign follows the struggles of Princess Leia as she tries to obtain information that's vital to the rebellion (if you're familiar with the first Star Wars movie, you know what that is). In another, Han Solo and Chewbacca try to restore freedom to Kashyyyk, Chewbacca's homeworld, and it's up to you to help them.
Aspyr Media, publishers of this title, yesterday announced that it has reached the Final Candidate stage, so Mac users should be getting their hands on this game in the near future. In the meantime, be sure to check out Apple's preview as well as IMG's own for more information.
