The best Star Wars game that doesn’t involve the player swinging a lightsaber is getting an April 6 release on PlayStation 4 and Switch, but those looking for a physical version of Republic Commando will need to wait until April 16, when the four-week pre-order window opens for Limited Run’s physical version, including a $120 collector’s edition filled with awesome Star Wars stuff.
I don’t need a cool collector’s edition for most games, but I make exceptions for classics that have brought me as much enjoyment over the years as the adventures of the Delta Squad in the cracks between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. So when I see a limited-edition collector’s set with a lovely helmet-looking box, a steelcase, a commemorative coin, a lovely little poster, a thermal detonator pin, and some art cards, I take notice.
Along with the PS4 and Switch releases, the Limited Run collector’s edition also comes in PC flavour, with a CD jewel case mounted on a blister card as if it were an action figure. I own the game on PC in several different forms already, but I might have room for one more.
Look for the $40 physical editions and the $120 collector’s edition to go up for preorder on the Limited Run website on April 16.
