So, as the previous post stated, LucasArts was going to release some “amazing” news on Monday, that old school fans would enjoy. All started from the tweet made on lucasartsgames. So the announcement is that a plethora of classic Lucas Arts games are being rereleased on Steam, for the next month or so.
According to lucasartsgames tweet, LucasArts is partnering with Steam for some “Digital adventurey goodness”. The first batch of games headed towards Steams service will be available July 8th.
LucasArts says that they’re trying to introduce the current gaming generation to some of their classic games. Also for a way to allow games to be acquired long after they’ve been taken off of shelves. Seems like any gamer who has been a fan of classic games would love this announcement. But me personally, it doesn’t interest me that much. For those of you who were hoping for a KOTOR 3, my sympathies go out to you, heh. This must be bad, or disappointing news to you, to say the least. This is LucasArts latest attempt at releasing their older classics. But I can see how this would be good though, many people, my bro included, love to play classics.
The first batch of classics to hit shelves July 8th are:
- Armed and Dangerous
- Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure
- LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventure
- Star Wars Battlefront II
- Star Wars Republic Commando
- Star Wars Starfighter
- The Dig
- Thrillville: Off the Rails
So those of you classic LucasArts fans watch out for July 8th for these games to hit Steams on demand service.
