LucasArts today announced Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga, which gathers the popular real-time strategy Windows PC game Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds and its dynamic Episode II mission expansion Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns in a single package. The value oriented Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga, expected to release this October, will challenge players with more than 50 battle campaigns representing the classic and prequel Star Wars universe.
As an added bonus to Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga, LucasArts has teamed with Wizards of the Coast, the worldwide market leader in the trading card and tabletop roleplaying game categories, to include the Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, booster packs for the highly successful Star Wars trading card game. The booster packs, available in limited quantities in the U.S. version of Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga, have an estimated retail value of $10.00.

"Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga presents two of this past years' most popular real-time strategy games in one low priced package," says Mary Bihr, vice president, worldwide sales and marketing for LucasArts. "Together with the Star Wars trading card game booster packs, Star Wars fans will have countless hours of gaming fun."
