Star WarsŪ Empire at WarŪ: Gold Pack Now Available

Award-Winning Strategy Game and Its Expansion Pack Are Together for the First Time Ever, With Bonus Content

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LucasArts today announced that the award-winning Star WarsŪ: Empire at WarŪ and its expansion pack, Star WarsŪ Empire at WarŪ: Forces of Corruption™, are now packaged together for the first time ever in Star WarsŪ Empire at WarŪ: Gold Pack. Now available at retailers nationwide for $29.99, the compilation also includes a hint book from Prima Games, plus all of the bonus content found in the Collector’s Edition of Empire at War. The Gold Pack also now supports Games for Windows and is compatible with both Windows Vista and Windows XP.

Developed by Petroglyph Games, Empire at War puts the power to command an entire war for the Star Wars galaxy at your fingertips, with battles focused on action-packed combat rather than tedious resource gathering. Set a few years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, Empire at War lets players wage war on ground and in space, as well as experience the creation of the Rebel Alliance, the strengthening of the Empire, and the beginnings of the Galactic Civil War.

As mastermind Tyber Zann in Forces of Corruption (also developed by Petroglyph), you'll stop at nothing as you seek to become the most notorious criminal leader since Jabba the Hutt. With all-new tactics like piracy, kidnapping, racketeering and bribery, you can control the shadowy forces of corruption in your attempt to rule the Star Wars underworld.
