STAR WARS: Battlefront Classic Collection announced with Steam Deck support

By - | Views: 30,871

Aspyr Media are busy! Not long after launching Tomb Raider I-III Remastered, they've now announced the STAR WARS: Battlefront Classic Collection and it's coming with Steam Deck support.

Releasing March 14th it, the official Star Wars announcement mentioned clearly "Steam users will also enjoy Steam Deck support." and Valve has already set it as Steam Deck Verified — so clearly there's been plenty of early testing on this one.

Quite a nice sounding bundling of games here as you get the original Star Wars Battlefront (2004) and Star Wars Battlefront II (2005) with online play for up to 64 players, expansions to the Hero Assault mode and all previously released bonus content.

Great. Buy or not to buy. That's the question for me. I must run 100 times around my house and then decide. Wait a minute. Am I a madman? well then I must go to a doctor who says: "This is your lucky day, my friend. I give you a couple dozen sedatives now. After that if you wake up, if you do wake up, we'll see if you're a good boy! If you aren't, then I give you an order to go a Lobotomy surgery! It'll be a Bless for You!What do you say?" Of course I accept with broad smile on my face ahh off topic again. How silly of me! I like star wars movies very much. So at least I'm interested!

What do I get if I rented the second game from Blockbuster a few times?
