'Star Wars Republic Commando' (ALL) Comes To Nintendo Switch and PS4 - Screens & Trailer

Star Wars Republic Commando is a squad-based first-person shooter that lets you explore the elite world of the Star Wars military.

In Star Wars Republic Commando, you’ve got your trusty blaster rifle and your squad of elite clone troopers at your side. The game adds a tactical layer to the first person shooter genre with squad commands.

You’ll play as Delta Squad leader RC-1138, AKA Delta Three-Eight, AKA “Boss,” but no clone is alone. The squad is your weapon, especially when you call the shots with maneuvers. Sure, your squadmates can maintain formation and execute tactics on their own, but the key to success is directing your squad to victory.

These maneuvers include commands to perform special tasks like demolitions or door breaches, search and destroy commands, and calls for your squad to form-up behind you. Your squad can even revive you when you fall in battle!


Aspyr announced the return of a Star Wars classic – Star Wars Republic Commando, the first-person tactical shooter where players lead a team of clone commandos as they battle through increasingly difficult missions that take place throughout the legendary Clone Wars. The game, brought back as a single player experience with modernized controls, arrives for Nintendo Switch and PS4 on April 6 for $14.99. 

“Since its original launch in 2005, Republic Commando continues to be a fan-favorite Star Wars game. We’re honored to be able work with Lucasfilm Games to bring back this beloved moment in franchise history.” said Ted Staloch, Aspyr Co-founder.

Here at Aspyr, we respect the classics. We’ve done our best to faithfully recreate the original Star Wars Republic Commando feel with a few modern twists.

What worked in 2005 doesn’t translate perfectly to modern hardware.  That’s why we updated  the controls to feel just right on the DualShock 4 and DualSense controllers (playable on PS5 via backwards compatibility).

Of course, no Aspyr port would be complete without new trophies to hunt. As you make your way through the game’s you’ll earn trophies for everything from completing campaigns to fending off droids.

Key Features:

  • Innovative Squad Control System - With intuitive and smart squad commands, the simple touch of one button easily controls your squad to perform complex commands and strategic maneuvers.
  • Welcome to the Clone Wars: Chaos has erupted throughout the galaxy. As leader of an elite squad of Republic Commandos, your mission is to infiltrate, dominate, and ultimately annihilate the enemy. 
  • Battle Relentless Enemies: Battle a variety of highly intelligent and deadly enemies—from brutal Trandoshan mercenaries to the flying insectoid warriors of Geonosis.
  • The Squad is Your Weapon: Your squad will follow your orders, performing complex commands and strategic maneuvers. You are their leader. They are your weapon.

Released in 2005 on PC (Steam), Xbox and PS2, Star Wars Republic Commando is coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4 on April 6, 2021 for $14.99.
