Star Wars day has finally arrived. And if you’re a fan of the tenured film franchise, it’s likely you’ve got a hankering to play some Star Wars games right now. However, you might be asking yourself: “what games are available on my Xbox One?” There’s actually a fair amount aside from the most recently released EA-developed Battlefront games.
Classic games like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars Republic Commando are all available on the console thanks to the magic of backwards compatibility. While not every Star Wars game in this feature has held up to the test of time, it’s difficult to deny the sense of nostalgia we still feel for them. After all, we all had to start somewhere, and if that starting point was the middling Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter, then so be it. Nostalgia is a force that helps heal some of the worst shortcomings.
As an added bonus, many of the Star Wars games highlighted in this feature are on sale right now on the Xbox digital store to celebrate Star Wars day. The deals last until May 8, so be sure to jump in while you have the chance.
