Petroglyph’s Star Wars strategy title Star Wars: Empire at War which was released back in 2006 has been updated.
It may be ten years since the game first appeared but that’s not stopped a new update appearing on Steam today. This new multiplayer update has removed the Gamespy multiplayer support and will now utilise Steam for multiplayer games. That;s not all, Petroglyph has now integrated Steam Workshop support for modders.
Petroglyph’s General manager Chuck Kroegel added,
We have received a huge number of requests to restore the multiplayer functionality to Star Wars: Empire at War. The game’s fan base has only increased with time and the user concurrency rates remain very strong, so we really felt like this was something we needed to do for all the loyal fans.
It’s always great to see older popular games still being supported and the good news is there’s also 50% off the Star Wars: Empire Gold Pack right now on Steam.
