Wiki

As a part of the Star Wars universe, the Star Wars Battlefront Classic Collection was released on March 14, 2024. It offers online support, which lets you engage in intense multiplayer battles with up to 64 players, which is the main feature of the game. The important additions are new characters and maps, an enhanced Hero Assault mode, and a Galactic Conquest mode.  

Even though everything is well designed, there are some drawbacks. According to Steam users, the game only had three 64-player servers, which is insufficient to accommodate the nearly 9,000 players who were using Steam alone. Despite this, the game mode "Heroes versus Villains" had issues, like players being unable to join the Heroes side and thus having no opponents.
