Finally, the Star Wars dog-fighting flying simulator Rogue Squadron 3D has made it to Steam.
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron (Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D for PC) is a video game that was first released for the Nintendo 64 video game console and the PC on December 7, 1998. It was one of the first Nintendo 64 games to support the console’s Expansion Pack, which allowed higher-quality graphics to be displayed while playing.
The story is set in between Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, beginning six months after the Battle of Yavin (with the exception of the final and secret levels), and shows the missions set during the formation of Rogue Squadron, led by Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles.
In 1999, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron won the Origins Award for Best Action Computer Game of 1998.
It is a time of great rejoicing in the galaxy. Luke Skywalker, with the help of Wedge Antilles, has blown up the Death Star. But there is little time to celebrate. The mighty Empire is gathering strength for a determined, all-out assault on the Rebel forces.
To save the Rebel Alliance from this Imperial onslaught, Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles have assembled the Rogue Squadron, a group of twelve of the most skilled battle-tested starfighter pilots. You will fly into battle as Luke Skywalker, to engage in intense, fast-paced planetary air-to-ground and air-to-air missions ‒ dogfights, search and destroy, reconnaissance, bombing runs, rescue assignments, and more.
- Take on the Galactic Empire in X-wings, Y-wings, A-wings, V-wings, and snowspeeders.
- Prove you’ve got what it takes against a slew of the Empire’s best and baddest, including AT-AT walkers, AT-STs, TIE fighters and more.
- Test your flying skill through extraordinary environments ‒ over water, through canyons, deserts, and volcanic regions.
- Astonishing 3D details include real time lighting and special effects (explosions, smoke, engine glow, tracer fire and more).
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D is $9.99, P319.95 (Philippine Peso).
