Star Wars: Republic Commando, the mid-2000s cult classic tactical first-person shooter, will get a new life on modern consoles when an HD remaster releases on April 6th for PS4 and Switch for $14.99.
Aspyr Media is handling the new version. The studio previously released a remaster for Star Wars Episode 1: Racer for the PS4 and Switch and is also working on a remaster of Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse, which is set to launch on March 16th.
Star Wars: Republic Commando was originally released on the Xbox and PC in early 2005 and was developed and published by Lucasfilm Games, then known as LucasArts. Set during the Clone Wars, players assume the role of a squad leader consisting of four elite clone troopers as the squad travels to various planets completing missions.
While the remaster is not coming to Xbox consoles, both Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S owners do have an opportunity to play the game on modern Microsoft gaming hardware. In 2018, Microsoft added Star Wars: Republic Commando as one of many Xbox original titles that were playable via backwards compatibility.
