Star Wars Classics Including Original Battlefront II and Rogue Squadron hit Origin Vault
The Star Wars franchise has a rich video game legacy, but sometimes it can be hard to track down all your favorite games from a galaxy far, far away. Well, EA is making it a little easier, as they’ve just added a dozen classic Star Wars shooters and action games to the Origin Access Vault, including the original Battlefront II, Republic Commando, Rogue Squadron, X-Wing Alliance, Episode I Racer, and more!
Here’s the full rundown of the games hitting the Vault:
- Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy – Your Jedi training begins as you seek to stop the Disciples of Ragnos. Customize your character, build your lightsaber, and protect the galaxy.
- Star Wars: Battlefront II (Classic, 2005) – For the Republic! Fight for the elite 501st Legion and deploy onto classic battlefronts from across the stars.

Some good stuff in there – I sure killed a lot of time with Episode 1 Racer and Rogue Squadron back in the day! Origin Access is EA’s PC subscription service -- $5 a month, or $30 a year, gets you access to the Vault, which includes a selection of games from EA and other publishers.
