Just launch it on GOG or Steam

There’s an extremely high-profile Star Wars Battlefront IIlaunching later this year, and it’s going to sell 11 billion copies (all numbers approximate). But, a long time ago, another game by the same name released and it’s still beloved by many. It’s set to make something of a resurgence.

GOG has worked with Disney to relaunch 2005’s Star Wars Battlefront II‘s multiplayer component for Steam and GOG. This originally ended in 2014 when matchmaking middleware GameSpy shut down. Since then, people have used third-party tools to keep the game alive.

It’s back now, though. GOG says that multiplayer will automatically work. All players have to do is launch the game through GOG or Steam. Go play some of this Star Wars Battlefront IIbefore that other Star Wars Battlefront IIstarts commanding everyone’s attention.
