Apple Games Features Star Wars: Empire At War
8:16 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games travelled to a galaxy far, far away for the site's latest game feature showcasing Star Wars: Empire at War. Recently brought to the Mac by Aspyr Media, Empire at War gives players the chance to wage battles in space and planetside as they fight for either the evil Empire or brave Rebellion. The feature includes an overview of the strategy game, some gameplay tips, and a brief history of Star Wars video games.

Producer Michael Fetterman and his team also reached into the Expanded Universe for other elements in the game, including many of the ships and two of the heroes: Kyle Katarn of Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast fame and Mara Jade, a character first introduced in author Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn trilogy as one of Emperor Palpatine’s personal assassins. Of course, you’ll also get access to many well-known characters, including Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Boba Fett, any of whom can help turn the tide of battle for your side.

Fetterman and his team also created about a third of the content found in Empire at War, including the Imperial AT-AA (All Terrain-Anti-Aircraft) Walker and TIE Mauler tank, as well as the Rebellion’s T4-B tank. “LucasArts has a rigorous process for new content approval and anything that did not already exist in the Star Wars universe had to pass through their licensing department,” Fetterman says. “It was very inspiring to work with them, as they are so passionate about preserving that Star Wars look and feel.”
