Origins Access for those of you who don’t know is a subscription-based service that lets you pick from a vault of 200 games for the price of a monthly fee. EA has recently added 12 classic Star Wars video games to Origin Access. Most likely to generate hype for the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
While we still have a month until the Jedi Fallen Order gameplay reveal, here’s the twelve games on Origins Access that you can pass the time with:
- Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
- Battlefront 2 (Classic, 2005)
- Republic Commando
- Rogue Squadron 3D
- Dark Forces
- Shadows of the Empire
- X-Wing Alliance
- Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith
- Galactic Battlegrounds Saga
- Episode 1 Racer
Now out of these, I’d like to specifically highlight Republic Commando. Star Wars Republic Commando was an amazing squad-based FPS that deviated from the usual Jedi gameplay to bring us the perspective of an elite clone unit. It was a huge breather and a very compelling game that nobody should miss out on.
Recently, EA also added the original Star Wars Battlefront on Steam. Here on the Origins Access games, we now have Star Wars Battlefront 2, also the classic version, available.
The other games range from rail shooters to pod racing and a few RPG golden nuggets in there as well. Origins Access is a good investment for anybody that wants to visit the old era of Star Wars video games.
With the titles like Battlefront 1 and 2 classic, online servers don’t exist officially anymore. A few community made servers can fix that issue, however.
EA hasn’t been the best to the Star Wars franchise but they seem to be trying their best to make it up to us.
The last two Battlefront games that came out, followed by the cancellation of Star Wars 1313 and the Visceral Star Wars game only added fuel to the fire.
The release of classic Star Wars video games on Origins Access is a good first step. Now all that’s left to see is Jedi Fallen Order.
