STAR WARS™: X-Wing Special Edition (1994)

About This Game

Includes STAR WARS™: X-Wing and all Tour of Duty expansions: Imperial Pursuit and B-Wing in all three versions: 1993 (DOS), 1994 (DOS CD), and 1998 (Windows) versions!

The Old Republic is gone. The Senate has been abolished. The Jedi Knights have been exterminated. Now the Emperor seeks to crush the last remaining opposition. Against the overwhelming might of the Empire stands a small but growing Rebel Alliance.

Suit up, climb aboard your own personal X-Wing and prepare to fight for your life. Out-maneuver the evil Empire’s TIE fighters and Star Destroyers and blast them into oblivion.

Plot

Players assume the role of a Rebel pilot fighting the Galactic Empire before and during the climactic battle of the first Star Wars film. The story consists of three tours of duty of 12 to 14 operations each; although the tours can be played out of order, operations within each tour are played linearly. Briefings, cutscenes, and in-flight messages advance the plot.

Progress through the game depends on fulfilling each operation’s primary objectives; if the player fails an operation, he or she can attempt it again. The initial game’s storyline concludes with the player flying as Luke Skywalker in his attack against the Death Star. Two expansion packs extend the story beyond the events in A New Hope, up to the establishment of the Rebel base depicted at the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back.

Features

  • Fly over 120 deep space and Death Star surface missions against the Empire!
  • Combat training simulates historical encounters with Imperial forces.
