An Enhanced Edition Of Star Wars: Bounty Hunter Hits Consoles And PC This August

Developer Aspyr Media and publisher Lucasfilm Games have revealed that an enhanced edition of 2002’s Star Wars: Bounty Hunter will launch on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC this August. More specifically, it hits PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC (via Steam) on August 1, and it brings with it updated visuals and controls and a new skin that harkens back to the original game’s most infamous easter egg. 

In the reveal trailer, we get a look at the graphical improvements Aspyr has implemented in Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, but the game still retains that 2002 PlayStation 2 and GameCube charm. This re-release follows a limited PlayStation 4 physical run that launched back in 2019.

If you’re unfamiliar with Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, you play as Jango Fett throughout the story, which itself is a prequel to Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

In the original game, there was an easter egg message that said, “Cash in all bounties to play as Boba.” However, cashing in all bounties did not let you play as Boba. To make good on that original promise from 2002, Aspyr media has included a Boba Fett skin in Star Wars: Bounty Hunters you can use after completing the game’s campaign. 

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter hits PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC on August 1. 

While waiting for its launch, check out this lengthy gameplay demo of Star Wars Outlaws, another mercenary-centric Star Wars game launching this year. Read Game Informer’s Star Wars Outlaws cover story after that.
