Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, originally released in 2002 for GameCube and PlayStation 2, is being revived and re-released on modern platforms including PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and Nintendo Switch on August 1 for $19.99. This action-adventure game lets you play as Jango Fett, hired to capture a Dark Jedi, and brings significant visual improvements along with a new Boba Fett skin for replayability. Aspyr is behind this revival, introducing features like enhanced environmental textures, dynamic lighting, and DualSense controller functionalities for PS5 players.

What are the new features in the re-released Star Wars: Bounty Hunter?

The re-released Star Wars: Bounty Hunter includes visual improvements, enhanced environmental textures, new dynamic lighting effects, a new flashlight tool, Steam Deck support, and DualSense controller features for PS5. Additionally, players can unlock a Boba Fett skin after completing the campaign.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, set before Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, immerses players in the legendary Bounty Hunter fantasy. You maneuver as Jango Fett, equipped with a variety of weapons like dual blasters, a flamethrower, and jetpack missiles, in a quest through the galaxy’s underbelly to capture a deranged Dark Jedi. The game's return is also seen as a redemption for Aspyr, following the troubled launch of Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection.
