The Newest Humble Bundle is Loaded with Great Star Wars Games

If you're looking to round out your Star Wars game collection, you should probably check out the newest Humble Bundle.

There have been plenty of Star Wars games released over the years, and plenty of them have been good. If you haven't played games like Knights of the Old Republic or Empire at War, the newest Humble Bundle may have a few things will catch your eye.

The Star Wars Humble Bundle III offers up four tiers of games and other goodies for fans of the franchise.

On the first tier ($1 or more), you can find all of these games:

  • Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
  • Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance
  • Star Wars: X-Wing vs TIE Fighter - Balance of Power Campaigns
  • Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga

The second tier requires you to beat the average price (currently $8.78), and adds these games:

  • Star Wars Battlefront II
  • Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
  • Star Wars Starfighter
  • Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
  • Star Wars: Rebel Assault I + II

The third tier will add five more games if you pay $14 or more:

  • Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition
  • Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
  • Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D
  • Star Wars Shadows of the Empire™
  • Star Wars Empire At War: Gold Pack

Finally, the $35 tier will add a spiffy X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter T-shirt.

As usual, you've got about two weeks to get in on the deal. There's no indication that any other games will be added to the deal along the way, but you never know what might happen. If you want to grab the bundle, head over to the Humble website.

....Shadow of the Empire? *Hyperventilates in the corner*

Ok, question I seriously need to ask. All of the space combat games, like X-Wing and Rogue Squadron. How do they handle with a mouse and keyboard?

Wasn't this already humble bundled a few years back?

X-Wing and TIE Fighter requires a joystick unless you're playing the DOS versions of the game through DOSBox. X-Wing Vs. TIE Fighter and X-Wing Alliance require a joystick to even launch, though a gamepad can be used as a substitute to get around that. Rogue Squadron does work with mouse and keyboard, but it doesn't work all that great, you might be better off trying to play with a gamepad if you have one.

No Dark Forces or Jedi Knight? Come on, guys. Why does everyone always pick Outcast over the original? It's not even a competition.

I already got half of these, so I'll pass.

wat r u casul Humble Bundle?

Multiplayer is gold in that game. Should have taken out The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Shit Edition and put that in.

Okay so I went ahead and got the $14 bundle and linked humble bundle to Steam and yadda yadda. But when I enter in the codes, it says the game has been redeemed into my library...but its not there. I checked. Waited a few minutes. Been like an hour since I entered in Shadows of the Empire, but I got nothin'.

How does this work? Is it like a pre-order or something? I get the game when it comes out on Steam and the bundle is a pre-pre-order proof on concept?

Errr, no, it's supposed to be there right away, that's some error you got there.

True canon Star Wars ftw. I'd wish for another Dark Forces game but I'd be afraid of what Disney and EA would do to it :(

I've been trying! I tried six different games and each one was added to my library, and if I enter the code a second time its "Already in the library."
Not a single one has ever appeared.

If you go to the page of the game itself on steam (where you can purchase it) does it still require you to buy it, or can you just download it from there?

There is no page for them.
Rogue Squadron, Shadows of the Empire, Rebel Assault, X-wing vs. Tie Fighter. None of them are on the Steam store.

Okay this is weird. If I search Star Wars, it doesn't show up. Shadows of the Empire, doesn't show. Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire, nothing.
If I copy the title directly from the link and paste it in THEN I get something. Was able to 'install' but it still doesn't appear in my library.

Sure you're in the right part of your library? Like "ready to install" or "installed" or some other category?

The weekly bundles have been not so great for a few months now. Sorta been going down hill ever since the Humble Monthly thing started.
