X-Wing Alliance

Jump to navigationJump to search


Things special about this game to have:

  • Custom single-player missions, especially good ones (since they take so long to make)
  • Strategy guides for single- and multi-player combat
  • Modifications, to graphics and otherwise


Take control of the "fastest ship in the galaxy" -- the Millennium Falcon -- as well as X-wings, A-wings, B-wings, Y-wings and other Corellian transports. Join the massive assault on the fully operational second Death Star in the epic Battle of Endor. Fifty story-driven single-player missions and flexible new multi-player options. Fly into the interior of the complex objects including star ships, asteroids, a salvage yard, and to the core of the Death Star for the first time in a Star Wars space combat game. New "skirmish" mode lets you set your own mission parameters (number of ships, types of ships, targets, and more) to create many customized single and multi-player conflicts. State-of-the-art space combat experience with updated graphics, special effects and expanded battles on an incredibly vast scale. Immersive playing environment including true 3D cockpits -- with full 360-degree views inside and out -- as well as a true 3D hangar. Rich soundtrack fills out the experience, including extensive new recorded dialog, dynamic audio that interacts with game events, the original Star Wars music and authentic sound effects. X-Wing was one of the first true space combat simulators for the PC back in 1993 and X-Wing Alliance incorporates both graphic and technological advances to create the most realistic Star Wars flying experience to date.

Dual story line drives rich single player gaming

The immersive single player story begins with you as "Ace" Azzameen, in training to join your family's Twin Suns Transport Services business as a pilot. Your immediate family will assist you as you learn the ropes, along with MK (your droid and constant companion.) As the game progresses you will be drawn into the Rebel Alliance's fight for survival from the encroaching Galactic Empire. The corrupt Viraxo family's schemes compound your problems as they continue with their mission to destroy Twin Suns. The choice is yours and so are the consequences.

Game play

Compelling single player campaign with over 50 missions leading to the climatic Battle of Endor. Secondary plot focuses on the rivalries between competing family businesses during this time of great upheaval. Expansive game play in four space sectors of space which you can move between while events occur in real time in all areas. Over 200 ships (including new high tech TIE Fighters), space stations and other objects created or redesigned so that they will shine when played on the latest 3D hardware accelerated systems. Immersive graphical interface returning to the roots of the previous Star Wars space combat hits X-Wing and TIE Fighter. True 3D Hangar where you can choose and equip your craft. You can return to the hangar during the middle of a mission to re-arm or switch craft. New audio features over 8,000 lines of original voice recording and a dynamic Star Wars sound track 3D Graphics Engine.

Support for twice as many objects in each of the four space sectors creating the largest Star Wars space combat experience yet. Fly into the interiors of large ships, space stations, asteroids, starship hangers, the second Death Star and a Rebel proving ground. Fully 3D rendered cockpits allow for 360-degree views. You can finally see what it looks like to turn your head to track a quick moving TIE fighter with pad lock view. Support for the latest 3D hardware that now allows for screen resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 Highly customizable Heads Up Display (HUD) and Multifunction Display (MFD) systems.
