The force is strong with Electronic Arts, as they announced today that tons of classic Star Wars games are now being added to EA Origin Access.

In celebration for the unofficial Star Wars holiday of May 4th, EA has added a total of 12 Star Wars games into their Origin Access Vault. All of the new games will be available for both Basic and Premier subscriptions.

A lot of fan favorites have made the cut, most notably the 2005 version of Star Wars Battlefront II, now known as the 'classic' version of the game. Not to be confused with the controversial version made by EA and Dice in 2017, Star Wars Battlefront II classic features armies from both the prequel and original trilogy fighting for dominance in the galaxy.

Other popular titles include Rogue Squadron 3D, the Jedi Knight games (Jedi Academy and Mysteries of the Sith) and Star Wars: Episode One Racer, which was only released on PC last year (you can check out our rewind review here if you like)

The full list of games available on EA Origin Access is as follows:

  • Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy – Your Jedi training begins as you seek to stop the Disciples of Ragnos. Customize your character, build your lightsaber, and protect the galaxy.
