Star Wars: Bounty Hunter Coming Back To Give The World More Boba Fett

Star Wars

Another Star Wars classic game is on the way back out there with a new version of Star Wars: Bounty Hunter dropping soon

Here we go with another title from the past coming back to build up different hype, as we have the announcement for Star Wars: Bounty Hunter. This is another one of the past titles that Aspyr is giving a fresh coat of paint to and will be dropping it out there on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC after twenty-two years of collecting dust out there. Just in case you were hurting to get more Star Wars in your life right now. Well, not right now, as this one will not be hitting the market until August 1st. So, there is going to be a little more of a wait but still something to try to fill the little void many out there might have for this IP.

Just like the other titles in this vein, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter is coming back and getting some upgraded visuals and other little tweaks to make the game run on the latest consoles out there. Also to give some new skins for those who might have wanted them back in 2002 but the game could not perfectly offer them up. It will also be adding in some support to make sure the game runs well on the Steam Deck and then a bunch of unspecified DualSense controller features for those who are going to be playing on the PS5. Mix in some new textures, lighting effects, and other basics and we can see Star Wars: Bounty Hunter landing to give that little break or dopamine hit that might be needed as we wait for the other titles in the IP to roll on out there.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter — Announcement

Aspyr is excited to announce Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games, a new title that brings the original Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (2002) to modern platforms with visual enhancements, improved environmental textures, new dynamic lighting effects, and a new flashlight tool for navigating dark places. Star Wars: Bounty Hunter will launch on Aug. 1, 2024, for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.

Become the most feared Bounty Hunter in the galaxy! As Jango Fett, you’ll have to jump, jetpack, climb, and maneuver in this iconic action-adventure game featuring a variety of visual improvements on modern platforms, as well as Steam Deck support and a number of DualSense controller features for PlayStation 5 players.

And for the first time ever, if the campaign is completed, players can unlock a new Boba Fett skin for their next playthrough, paying off a notorious easter egg from the original game!
