STAR WARS™: X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter (1997)

About This Game

Real-time against real pilots; this is Star Wars space combat as it was meant to be! Featuring challenging real-time dogfights of 2 to 8 players, Star Wars™: X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter is one of the most historically significant space combat simulators ever made. Never before were virtual pilots able to climb into the cockpit of an Empire or Rebellion starfighter and have the choice of flying alone or with others, cooperatively or competitively.

Fly over 50 combat missions in nine meticulously enhanced Star Wars starfighters with or against your friends. Or engage in melees, taking on all rivals, to determine once and for all who is the greatest starfighter pilot in the galaxy. The power of the Force™ resides in the most skilled and daring pilot.

Choose your craft and choose your weapons, but most of all, choose your wingmates very carefully. Your life may depend on it!

It includes robust multiplayer options for up to eight players in free-for-all, team-based, and cooperative play modes, and has a sophisticated pilot and mission selection system that tracks the player’s points and awards. In addition to selecting what craft he or she will fly, the player can choose their squadron (and thus role in combat) for each mission.

Features

  • Multiplayer modes supporting up to 8 players over LAN.
  • Over 50 combat missions and nine iconic spacecrafts to choose from.
