Resurrecting the popular Star Wars bounty hunter game from the heyday of Star Wars gaming is a joint venture between Aspyr and Lucasfilm Games.

Release Date of Star Wars Bounty Hunter

This August, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, an improved version developed by Aspyr Media and published by Lucasfilm Games, will be available on PC, PlayStation4, Xbox One, and Switch. More precisely, it launches on August 1st for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC (through Steam). It features revised controls and graphics, as well as a new skin that pays homage to the most notorious easter egg from the original game.

History

Darth Tyranus recruited Jango Fett in the latter years of the Galactic Republic to serve as the genetic model for the Grand Army of the Republic. El-Les and Bric were employed to assist in clone trooper training during the Clone Wars. By the time of the Galactic Empire’s rule, a large number of bounty hunters belonged to the Bounty Hunters’ Guild, which was granted access to the Imperial Enforcement DataCore through Imperial Peace-Keeping Certificates issued by the Imperial Office of Criminal Investigations.

Jas Emari, a Zabrak bounty hunter, made an effort to gather New Republic rewards for killing Imperial officers Admiral Rae Sloane, Grand Moff Valco Pandion, General Jylia Shale, financier Arsin Crassus, and Imperial advisor Yupe Tashu after the Battle of Endor. After that, Emari became a member of Norra Wexley’s group and participated in the uprising on Akiva. Dengar, a bounty hunter, prophesied that the new government would impose bounties on bounty hunters in the months following the events of Endor.

Swift afterward decided to claim Gyuti, the crime lord of Black Sun,’s bounty on Jas Emari. As his crew, he brought on Dengar, Embo, and Jeeta. But Emari was able to turn Swift’s crew against him, persuading them that their assistance in tracking Grand Admiral Sloane would earn them rewards from the New Republic. The New Republic granted Dengar, Embo, and Jeeta complete pardons and monetary compensation for their services during the Battle of Jakku. Then they became part of Emari’s team. A galactic recession around 9 ABY caused abnormally low bounties, which reduced the appeal of the hazardous occupation. Thus, high-value targets were allocated to multiple bounty hunters with matching tracking fobs, either at the behest of the local Guild boss or at the request of the client placing the bounty.

Bounty Hunter Comes with Long-Desired Easter Egg Skin

Aspyr not only updated the game for current consoles but also included a new Boba Fett skin that players could apply upon finishing the campaign. PlayStation claims that a low-resolution texture with the text “Cash in all bounties to play as Boba” appeared in the original Star Wars: Bounty Hunter.

The Easter egg that was present in the game’s original files was never implemented, but Aspyr is now addressing that. Chris Bashaar, Director of Product at Aspyr, stated, “We’ve brought this Easter egg to life, so after finishing the campaign, you will be able to equip a new Boba Fett skin for your next playthrough.”

Conclusion

With improved graphics and new quality-of-life features, Aspyr and Lucasfilm Games’ relaunch of Star Wars: Bounty Hunter promises an improved experience. August 1st, for $19.99 on multiple platforms, will see the release of the much-anticipated Easter egg—a brand-new Boba Fett skin. Fans can anticipate an even more exciting bounty-hunting expedition.
