Description

The destiny of a galaxy hangs in the balance, and you're in command. Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds lets you lead Star Wars armies to victory in intense real-time strategy clashes. Enter the fray as the Galactic Empire, Rebel Alliance, Trade Federation, Wookiees, and other civilizations or organizations in campaigns that will determine the final outcome of the Galactic Civil War.

Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds is an epic real-time strategy set against a backdrop of the entire Star Wars saga. The conflicts involve six key civilizations: Galactic Empire, Rebel Alliance, Wookiees, Gungans, Royal Naboo, and the Trade Federation. Execute your campaign over land, sea, and air with more than 300 different units and structures in single-player campaigns, skirmishes, and multiplayer battles.

Combat arenas extend from interstellar asteroids and aerial encounters to submerged cities and ground battles. Deploy vast legions of units into battle--up to 200 per side--with groups that include bounty hunters, Jedi Knights, stormtroopers, X-Wings, AT-ATs, snowspeeders, AT-STs, Wookiee Kas tanks, and droids. Manage your resources and integrate the power of upgradable technology into your strategy, such as Wookiee ingenuity, advanced Gungan biotechnology, and Jedi stamina. Each technology level brings new wonders and new forces. Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds features accessible gameplay built upon the familiar RTS engine adapted from Ensemble's popular Age of Empires series. Use the scenario editor to create custom single or multiplayer battlegrounds with virtually any Star Wars units and settings.

Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds Render This unit generates a mobile shield that emanates in a fairly wide radius, protecting all Gungan units standing within its confines. The Heavy Fambaa Shield Generator gains an even stronger defense. Fambaa Shield Generators are specifically designed for defensive purposes, and carry no weapons of their own.
Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds Render This all-purpose flying vehicle is quick and capable of delivering surgical strikes against any other unit, flying or otherwise. It is most useful as a support unit. The Fighter is best suited for attacking those forces that cannot retaliate-for instance, workers, Troopers, and Bombers.
