Description

Set loosely between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Star Wars: Empire at War is a strategy game spread over the Galactic Empire. Players command either the Imperial or Rebel forces and engage the enemy in space and on land, while boosting their own economies and building units and support buildings. In addition to classic Star Wars units and vehicles, Empire at War also includes heroes units. Players can control Darth Vader, Han Solo, and many other classic characters.

Space combat allows the player control over squads of smaller starcraft and larger capital ships. Enemy hardpoints can be targeted allowing players to knock out shield generators, flight hangers, and other ship systems. Land combat is unit and vehicle-based and relies on securing reinforcement points to land additional forces and using build points to construct defenses.

Empire at War offers several modes of game play. The Empire and the Rebellion each have their own story-based campaign, there are several freeform campaign options where players can adjust the settings and select the victory conditions. Empire at War also supports multiplayer options online.
