Star Wars Republic Commando launches on PS4 this April – PlayStation.Blog
Republic Commando is a fan favorite, and nobody knows this better than Aspyr. Trust me, we’ve read many, many, many tweets and comments asking you to do so. We are happy to inform you that your inquiries are finally being answered.
Right, Aspyr Media is bringing Star Wars Republic Commando to PlayStation 4 for the first time on April 6th and yes, we did include a platinum trophy.
Several years have passed since the original release. So allow me to introduce you to Star Wars Republic Commando and Delta Squad again.
In Star Wars Republic Commando you have your reliable blaster rifle and your squad of elite clone troops at your side. The game expands the first person shooter genre by adding a tactical level with squad commands.
You play as Delta Squad Leader RC-1138, AKA Delta Three-Eight, AKA “Boss”, but no clone is alone. The squad is your weapon, especially when you are in charge of maneuvers. Sure, your squadmates can maintain their formation and perform tactics on their own, but the key to success is leading your squad to victory.
These maneuvers include commands to perform specific tasks such as demolition work or breaking doors, searching for and destroying commands, and asking your squad to form behind you. Your squad can even revive you if you fall in battle!
A superfan’s delight
You may not have played Star Wars Republic Commando, but you may recognize Delta Squad from the TV show Star Wars: The Clone Wars in the episode “Witches From the Mist”. Fun fact: this is the first appearance of a clone commando in the series!
Of course, this isn’t the only connection Delta Squad has to the entire Star Wars universe. Boba Fett, Jango Fett and the fearless Delta Squad leader Delta Three-Eight were all voiced by Temuera Morrison, who recently re-enacted the role of Boba Fett on the second season of The Mandalorian.
Same 2005 Classic, new modernized controls
Here at Aspyr we respect the classics. We did our best to faithfully recreate the original Star Wars Republic Commando feel with a few modern twists.
What worked in 2005 cannot be perfectly transferred to modern hardware. With this in mind, we’ve updated the controls to feel just right on the DualShock 4 and DualSense controllers (playable on PS5 via backward compatibility).
Of course, no Aspyr Port would be complete without new trophies. As you progress through the game, you’ll earn trophies for everything from running campaigns to fighting off droids. My personal favorite is Squeaky Clean, which you can earn by keeping your tactical visor (you guessed it) squeaky clean.
We are very pleased that we can bring you the 6th Command of the Republic. So send our greetings to Kamino!
