Given that joysticks aren't as popular now as they were in the 1990's I do hope there's a good keyboard and mouse configuration on their versions of X-Wing and TIE Fighter.

Only the original versions can be played with mouse & keyboard. The '98 remakes are joystick/controller only.

Lucasfilm strikes back.

A long time ago in a galaxy near you, ©Disney Interactive and GOG.com teamed up to bring you the holy grail of classic gaming: six Lucasfilm cult-classics were added to our DRM-free catalog, including three titles which saw their digital premiere on GOG.com. We also made a promise to bring you many more cult-classics in the future and, believe us, we did not forget.

Today, with great pride and joy, we're excited to announce Wave II of Lucasfilm games on GOG.com! Starting right now, six new Star Wars™ classics are available in our DRM-free Lucasfilm/Disney catalog. This includes three amazing titles available, for the first time in digital distribution, exclusively on GOG.com:

Star Wars: X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter

Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance

Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds Saga

We're also celebrating the DRM-free release of these Star Wars™ games with a 72-hour 20% launch discount:

Star Wars: Battlefront II

Star Wars: Dark Forces

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords

Just in case you missed your chance last time, you can grab three more Lucasfilm classics for the same 20% discount, until Friday, January 30, at 1:59 PM GMT!

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition

Our Lucasfilm/Disney is made that much more impressive today thanks to our team-up with ©Disney Interactive. The 6 new Star Wars™ releases, which include 3 digital premieres exclusively on GOG.com, are barely the beginning. We're not saying more right now, but we know the wait will be worth it for six great reasons - keep watching the front page and stay tuned for more exciting Lucasfilm titles releasing on GOG.com when the timer strikes zero!

Same here. Apparently, next week they will release Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, Starfighter and Republic Commando.

Personally, I'm waiting for Episode I: Racer, TPM and Shadows of the Empire.

I wonder if they will go the for extra credit and make it the Starfighter: Special Edition version.





Considering trying out (or returning to) SWTOR? You may as well go through my link and help get me some SWTOR referral points!

They don't do that stuff (porting console features). It will be the PC version.

I was just thinking that myself. I have something to get excited about again with all these new releases.
