Star Wars: X-Wing games land on Steam

The old-school classic X-Wing series is landing on Steam today, coincidentally in time for Star Wars Day (and a Star Wars Day sale).


Back in October, released a number of classic Star Wars games, headlined by the X-Wing series. But for those don't necessarily care for games without DRM attached, the old-school X-Wing games that defined many people's youths have now hit Steam.

Former CAG'er Wario64 noted the arrival on Twitter this morning. Steam is offering up the full four-game X-Wing library, which includes X-Wing: Special Edition, TIE Fighter: Special Edition, X-Wing Alliance, and X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter.

The full bundle is going for $29.99 (EDIT: It has been slashed by 10 percent, as of the time of this post), but maybe don't jump on those games just yet. After all, May 4th is on the horizon and that's the time for all things Star Wars. And in fact, there are already signs pointing to a major Star Wars Day Steam sale.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
