Star Wars: Empire At War Remake Mod Download Now Available For PC

Are you a fan of Star Wars? More importantly, are you a fan of the older Star Wars games? If you answered yes to both, then you should know that modder Jeroenimo and crew have released Star Wars: Empire at War Remake’s mod for PC, which is now up for download.

Winning mod of the year over on ModDB, we learn that the Star Wars: Empire at War — a game that hit the market on February 16th, 2006 — not only looks better than it did on launch day, but it brings gameplay elements along with it for those wanting something more.

The creators behind the mod note that it “catapults Empire at War” into the future. However, while the core game’s design philosophy is intact new units, better graphics, and enriched gameplay can be found in this mod.

If you want to know more about the following mod and what it has in store for the curious, you can read the description below, or you can check out the video by YouTuber TheXPGamers:

“The Empire at War Remake mod version 3.0, with many overhauls and new stuff. Enjoy. While technically still the Lite version (it’s feature incomplete as to everything I’m planning) that name confused people on the regular, so here is the “full” version of the mod.”

If you like what you see, you can download the mod by paying the “file” section on moddb.com a visit:
