In Star Wars Episode l: Racer you take control of a podracer speeding through flaming methane lakes, Tusken Raider assaults, anti-gravity tunnels, and much more in a pulse-pounding, do-or-die fight to the finish line.

Star Wars Episode l: Racer, the classic sci-fi racing game based on the podracing sequence in the film Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, is back with modernized controls.  

Originally planned for May 12, 2020, Aspyr has sent out notice that it is delaying Star Wars Episode l: Racer due to COVID-19 related work schedules.

"We are so excited to share Star Wars Episode l: Racer with you soon! Unfortunately, due to the ongoing work from home requirements across the industry, the game will be further delayed on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. We’ll be back with an update as soon as possible."

Key Features:

  • Race tracks spanning eight unique worlds including Tatooine, Baroonda, and Malastare
  • Players can work with pit droids to upgrade podracers for higher top speeds and acceleration
  • Discover short-cuts and secrets to master lap times
