The Original Star Wars: Battlefront II Has Online Multiplayer Once Again

Following the closure of GameSpy in 2013, a number of classic games lost their online multiplayer capabilities, with one of those games being the original Star Wars: Battlefront II.

While it was still possible to play online games, it required a lot more effort and know how, and as a result, numerous communities and games sadly died due to GameSpy’s closure. It was only the most dedicated and hardcore gamers who took the time to get back online.

Thanks to GOG, who have teamed up with Disney, Star Wars: Battlefront II is getting its online multiplayer capabilities back through a small update made to the GOG version of the game. It means that anyone can now jump straight into a multiplayer match with ease.

Not only have GOG added multiplayer capabilities back into the game, they have also made it possible for Steam users to play with GOG gamers as well.

To celebrate the update and partnership with Disney, GOG are offering the classic Star Wars: Battlefront II at 60% off, meaning that it will cost the small sum of £3.19 to pick it up now. It will return to its original price of £7.89 after the sale.

Hopefully, we will see more classic games like this get their online multiplayer back!
