Originally released for the Xbox and PC in 2005, Star Wars: Republic Commando puts you in the leadership position as you lead a squad of Clone Troopers to take down enemies wherever they may be. Here’s an overview from the official Steam page of the game.
Chaos has erupted throughout the galaxy. As leader of an elite squad of Republic Commandos, your mission is to infiltrate, dominate, and ultimately, annihilate the enemy. Your squad will follow your orders and your lead, working together as a team – instinctively, intelligently, instantly. You are their leader. They are your weapon.
Innovative Squad Control System – With intuitive and smart squad commands, the simple touch of one button easily controls your squad to perform complex commands and strategic maneuvers.
Multiple Gaming Mode – Choose the single-player option and command a squad of four that you can dispatch at will. Or, choose the multiplayer option and play with up to sixteen players online in different multi-player modes.
Prelude to Episode III – Encounter new vehicles, locations and enemies from the upcoming film.
Speaking of Star Wars games, a new game called Star Wars Hunters was announced recently and is developed by Zynga.
Star Wars: Republic Commando will be released for PS4 and Nintendo Switch on April 6.
