What Star Wars Games Are Canon?

Star Wars-themed games are almost as old as the movies, with Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back coming out for the Atari 2600 in July of 1982. Since then, more than 150 games have come out. However, not all of them are canon today. Lucasfilm reset the Star Wars canon in 2014 in order to create new stories within the universe. As a result, many games became part of the Legends continuity. So, here are all the canon Star Wars games along with all of the Legends games.

Are the Star Wars Games Canon?

There are canon Star Wars games, but not all of the games are canon. Generally speaking, any game released after 2014 is canon.

Some of the most popular canon games are Star Wars Battlefront (2015), Star Wars Battlefront II (2017), Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (2019), and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor (2023). There are also a number of mobile, VR, and browser-based games that are canon in the Star Wars universe.

Although considered Legends now, most of the Star Wars games released between 1993 and 2014 were originally considered C-canon. The C stood for continuity, which loosely meant the story was canon until a movie or television show contradicted it.

These include X-Wing (1993), Dark Forces (1995), X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter (1997), Knights of the Old Republic (2003), Star Wars Battlefront (2004), and The Force Unleashed (2008), among many others.

Several games released in the now-Legends period had questionable canonicity, despite being considered C-canon. Notable examples include Star Wars: Rebel Assault (1993) and Episode I Racer (1999).

Set between Episodes IV and IV, Rebel Assualt features an Imperial invasion of Hoth set several years before The Empire Strikes Back. The storyline of Racer has Anakin Skywalker racing on several other systems, a direct contradiction to The Phantom Menace.

Most of the games released before 1993, and even several that came out much later, were not officially considered canon.

This includes games for the Atari system like The Empire Strikes Back (1982) and Return of the Jedi (1983), as well as Nintendo games like Super Star Wars (1992), Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1993), and Super Return of the Jedi (1994).

How Does Lucasfilm Decide If a Star Wars Video Game is Canon?

While it may seem confusing how they decide which Star Wars games are canon, it’s actually relatively straightforward.

Lucasfilm reset the Star Wars canon on April 25, 2014. Most but not all games released after that date are considered canon. The canon games are developed alongside the Lucasfilm Story Group to ensure they do not contradict other Star Wars stories.

There are four main exceptions to new releases that are not considered canon.

First are expansion packages to The Old Republic game. Despite no longer being canon, BioWare has continued developing the game. There have been five expansions since the canon reset, the most recent in 2022.

Second are re-releases of games that originally came out before the canon reset. For example, Knights of the Old Republic and Knights of the Old Republic II were re-released for the Nintendo Switch in 2021 and 2021, respectively.

Other prominent re-releases include the Super Star Wars Original Trilogy from the early 1990s, Episode I: Racer, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Bounty Hunter, and Republic Commando.

Thirdly is the LEGO series of games. Even before the reset, these games were considered non-canon. While many of the games reenact the movies, they add a layer of satirical comedy. They often break the fourth wall, creating in-jokes between the player and the story.

Lastly, are the cases where Star Wars characters, items, or character skins are added to existing video games. Since the canon reset, there have been a number of cross-over events with popular game franchises.

These include Club Penguin, Disney Infinity, Disney Emoji Blitz, Fortnite, Minecraft, Roblox, and The Sims. Even before 2014, Star Wars cross-overs with other franchises were not canon. One example of a non-canon game before the reset is Angry Bird Star Wars.

What Star Wars Games Are Canon?

There are 28 canon Star Wars games available today, with two more titles expected in 2024 and two other announced games in development. This includes multiplatform games, mobile games, and browser games.

What is the difference between Star Wars canon and Legends? Canon is the official story, with the Lucasfilm story group keeping track of every character, location, and item. Games that were part of the Star Wars Expanded Universe moved to the Legends continuity at that time. They are now considered myths.

These are the most popular games in Star Wars canon, but the full list of canon games is included below.

Star Wars Battlefront (2015)

Star Wars Battlefront, released on November 17, 2015, is a multiplayer-focused, first-person and third-person shooter video game developed by DICE and published by Electronic Arts (EA).

It is a loose reboot of the original Battlefront from 2004. The game features iconic locations, characters, and vehicles from the franchise. Playable characters include Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, Jyn Erso, Nien Nunb, Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, Orson Krennic, Boba Fett, Greedo, Bossk, and Dengar.

The main criticism of the game is that it has no story mode, focusing entirely on co-op missions. Game modes include online multiplayer, single-player, and offline split-screen multiplayer.

Six expansion packs were released as downloadable content (DLCs) for the game between 2015 and 2016. The DLCs were Battle of Jakku, Outer Rim, Bespin, Death Star, Rogue One: Scarif, and Rogue One: X-wing VR Mission.

The DLCs were available on all game platforms except the X-Wing VR Mission, which was exclusive to the Playstation VR. DLC content required a season pass, costing $50 over the base game price.

Star Wars Battlefront II (2017)

DICE and EA released Battlefront II on November 17, 2017. It is a direct sequel to the 2015 game and a sort of spiritual sequel to the original two Battlefront games. It was also a third-person and first-person shooter-style video game.

Unlike its 2015 predecessor, it included a campaign mode along with multiplayer, arcade, and instant-action modes. Gameplay primarily took place between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Multiplayer and other game modes featured iconic locations from across the Star Wars universe.

The game introduced a broader roster of heroes and villains from across the Star Wars saga.

Battlefront II faced widespread criticism for its microtransaction system, which initially allowed players to purchase in-game loot boxes and upgrades with real money. This led to concerns about pay-to-win dynamics, as players could potentially gain advantages by spending additional money.

There were six DLCs released as separate seasons, however, there was no additional charge for the content. The DLCs included The Last Jedi, Resurrection, Solo, Clone Wars, The Rise of Skywalker, and The Original Trilogy.

Vader Immortal (2019)

Vader Immortal is an immersive virtual-reality video game set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Developed by ILMxLAB, it was released in three separate episodes for various VR platforms, including Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR.

The game offers a combination of lightsaber combat, Force powers, and immersive storytelling. Players assume the role of a smuggler who becomes entangled in Darth Vader’s plans.

During the game, you explore various locations, solve puzzles, and engage in lightsaber duels with enemies, all while uncovering the mysteries surrounding the Sith Lord. The narrative explores themes of the Force, the dark side, and the legacy of the Skywalker saga.

The game received positive reviews for its captivating story, impressive VR visuals, and the opportunity for players to experience the Star Wars universe in a new and immersive way.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (2019)

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a single-player, third-person action-adventure game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by EA. Released on November 15, 2019, the game follows the story of Cal Kestis, a young Jedi Padawan who survives Order 66 and is now on the run from the Galactic Empire.

Throughout the game, players explore various planets, solve puzzles, and fight against Imperial forces and various hostile creatures. Cal gains new Force abilities and upgrades his lightsaber as players progress through the game. The story delves into Cal’s past, his connection to the Force, and his quest to unlock the secrets of a Jedi holocron that could rebuild the Jedi Order.

The game introduces Merrin, a Nightsister from Dathomir, Jedi Master Cere Junda, the Latero Greez Dritus, and the droid BD-1. The main antagonists are the Second Sister and the Ninth Sister, members of the Imperial Inquisitorius.

Star Wars: Squadrons (2020)

Star Wars: Squadrons is a space combat game that focuses on starfighter combat, offering both a single-player campaign and multiplayer modes. Developed by Motive Studios and published by EA, the game was released on October 2, 2020.

The single-player campaign unfolds after the events of Return of the Jedi, featuring perspectives from both the New Republic and the Galactic Empire. Players assume the roles of pilots from both factions, experiencing the narrative through alternating missions.

In terms of gameplay, Squadrons emphasizes dogfighting and space battles, allowing players to pilot iconic Star Wars starfighters such as X-wings, TIE fighters, and others. The game offers a variety of modes, including Fleet Battles, Dogfights, and a customizable practice mode.

Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge (2020)

Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is a virtual reality action-adventure game developed by ILMxLAB and published by Oculus Studios. Released on November 19, 2020, the game takes place on the planet Batuu, from the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge theme park attractions.

Players assume the role of a droid repair technician who gets pulled into various adventures, encountering iconic Star Wars characters and battling against enemies.

The expansion package Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Last Call came out on September 15, 2021. An Enhanced Edition of the game was released for the PlayStation VR2 on February 22, 2023.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor (2023)

Released on April 28, 2023, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the sequel to 2019’s Jedi: Fallen Order. Developed by Respawn Entertainment and released by EA, it continues the story of Jedi Knight Cal Kestis.

Set five years after the first game, Cal reunites with Merrin, Cere, and Greez to uncover a mysterious planet that could be a safe hiding place for Jedi and Force-sensitive beings. The game also ties into the High Republic era and the Hidden Path underground network seen in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

Like the original, Jedi: Survivor is a single-player, third-person action-adventure game. The gameplay is largely the same, but it adds a new mechanic for fighting stances. It also adds more non-playable characters (NPCs) to the game, allowing you to interact and even recruit these characters.

What Star Wars Games Are Legends?

More than 130 games are part of the Star Wars Legends timeline. While most of these games were canon when they first came out, a number of them were considered non-canon or secondary canon (S-canon) when first released.

Examples of popular games that were canon when they first came out include Star Wars: Dark Forces (1995), Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (2002), Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (2003), Star Wars Battlefront (2004), Star Wars: Republic Commando (2005), Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (2008), and Star Wars: The Old Republic (2011)

Games released before 1993 or that retell stories directly from the movies were usually considered non-canon or S-canon. This includes the early PC games, Atari and Nintendo console games, and early handheld games.

Examples include Star Wars: Jedi Arena (1983) for the Atari 2600 game console, Star Wars: Droids (1988) for the Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum 8-bit home computer systems, and The Software Toolworks’ Star Wars Chess (1993) for PC and Sega CD.

Here are the most well-known games that are now considered Star Wars Legends. Because the list is long, game series are grouped together.

Star Wars: X-Wing Series

The Star Wars: X-Wing flight simulator series includes four individual computer games, along with several expansion packs. The games were originally released for DOS and Windows PCs and Macintosh computers.

The series started with the 1993 game Star Wars: X-Wing, where you train as an X-Wing pilot in the Rebellion. The 1994 sequel is Star Wars: TIE Fighter, where you fight for the Galactic Empire. Both games were initially released on 3.5″ floppies but later re-released on CD-ROM.

The 1997 game X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter focused on multi-player missions but lacked a robust solo campaign. The final game in the series, 1999’s X-Wing Alliance mixes the multiplayer aspect of the previous game with a comprehensive campaign story like the first two.

The story for the X-Wing series takes place during the Original Trilogy and the player can take part in many of the battles seen on screen. Although considered canon when they first came out, the player could change the outcome of battles seen in the films.

Games in the X-Wing Series:

  • Star Wars: X-Wing (1993)
  • Star Wars: X-Wing – Tour of Duty: Imperial Pursuit (1993) [X-Wing Expansion Pack]
  • Star Wars: X-Wing – Tour of Duty: B-Wing (1993) [X-Wing Expansion Pack]
  • Star Wars: TIE Fighter (1994)
  • Star Wars: TIE Fighter – Defender of the Empire (1994) [TIE Fighter Expansion Pack]

  • Star Wars: X-Wing Vs. TIE Fighter – Balance of Power Campaigns (1997) [X-Wing Vs. TIE Fighter Expansion Pack]
  • Star Wars: X-Wing Vs. TIE Fighter – Flight School (1998) [Included in the X-Wing Collector Series (1998)]
  • Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance (1999)

Jedi Knight Series

One of the more popular, albeit confusingly named, Jedi Knight game series started with 1995’s Dark Forces. An early first-person shooter, similar to Wolfenstein 3D and Doom, you play as Kyle Katarn and attempt to uncover a secret Imperial super-soldier program.

In the 1997 sequel Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, Katarn faces off against the Dark Jedi Jerec. The game also included an expansion pack, Mysteries of the Sith.

The third game in the series is the 2002 Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. Katarn must use his Force powers to battle an Imperial remnant and the Dark Jedi Desann.

The final installment in the series is 2003’s Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy introduces the Jedi student Jaden Korr. Playing as Korr, you investigate the Dark Jedi cult Disciples of Ragnos.

The first two games in the series are first-person shooters, while the second two introduce third-person gameplay.

Kyle Katarn is the central character in the game series, appearing in all four games. However, he only appears as an NPC in Jedi Academy.

Games in the Jedi Knight Series:

  • Star Wars: Dark Forces (1995)
  • Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II (1997)
  • Star Wars Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith (1998) [Dark Forces II Expansion Pack]
  • Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast (2002)
  • Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (2003)

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron Series

The Rogue Squadron series focuses on the eponymous Rebel Alliance squadron unit during key battles during and in between the Original Trilogy. All three games were co-developed by Factor 5 and LucasArts.

The games were released for Nintendo consoles, with the first game also coming out for Windows PCs. The Battle of Hoth, originally depicted in The Empire Strikes Back, appears in all three games.

The 1998 Rogue Squadron game primarily takes place between A New Hope and Empire, creating the origins of the Rogue Squadron flight group led by Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles.

It featured a number of unlockable vehicles, including the Naboo N-1 Starfighter from the then-forthcoming movie Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

The 2001 sequel Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader includes missions during the Battle of Yavin, the Battle of Endor, and several other events that loosely connect to events in the OT.

Squadron III: Rebel Strike, the final sequel from 2003, fills in more gaps in the OT. Stories arcs include the Rebel Alliance moving from Yavin IV to Hoth, freeing Rebel hostages on Bakura, visiting Geonosis, destroying a Super Star Destroyer under construction at the shipyards of Fondor, and events leading up to the Battle of Endor.

Factor 5 planned a fourth game for Xbox that was canceled in 2003. Reportedly 50% of the game was complete at the time. Although not a part of the Rogue Squadron series, some consider the 2000 game Episode I: Battle for Naboo a spiritual sequel.

Games in the Rogue Squadron Series:

  • Star Wars: Rogue Squadron (1998)
  • Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader (2001)
  • Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike (2003)

Episode I Racer (1999)

The 1999 game Star Wars Episode I: Racer is based on the podracing scene in The Phantom Menace. Developed and published by LucasArts, the game allows players to participate in podracing tournaments across various tracks and planets in the Star Wars universe.

Jake Lloyd and Lewis MacLeod reprise their roles as Anakin Skywalker and Sebulba from the film.

Racer features four gameplay modes, three single-player options, and one multiplayer setting. In Tournament mode, you compete in races to win prize money to upgrade your racer and unlock new courses.

Free Race mode allows you to practice on unlocked courses and perfect your piloting skills. In Time Attack, you race against the clock to set the fastest time on each course.

The multiplayer gameplay mechanic depends on the version of the game. Nintendo 64 and Dreamcast versions feature split-screen multiplayer, while the Windows and Macintosh games allow up to eight racers to play over a local area network (LAN).

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (2002)

Developed by LucasArts, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter is a third-person action-adventure game that explains how Jango Fett was selected as the genetic template for the clone army.

It was released on November 19, 2002 for PlayStation 2 and December 7, 2002 for the Nintendo GameCube.

In addition to the campaign story, the game also allows you to collect bounties.

The game is set in 32 BBY, shortly after the events of The Phantom Menace and approximately ten years before Attack of the Clones.

Temuera Morrison and Leeanna Walsman reprise their role as Jango Fett and Zam Wesell, respectively, in the game.

Star Wars Galaxies (2003)

Released on June 26, 2003 as Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, this is the first Star Wars-themed massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG).

Developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts for Windows computers, the game allowed players to create their own characters within the Star Wars universe. Players could originally choose from ten different species and thirty-two professions. However, the number of professions was reduced to nine in later updates.

Like most MMORPGs, the game featured an open-world sandbox gameplay, where players could explore different planets and go on quests and missions. It also emphasized player-driven content, allowing users to build and customize structures, form alliances, and engage in large-scale player-versus-player battles.

There were several game expansions and updates over the eight-year run of the game. While some of the new quests and updates were positively received, players heavily criticized others.

While the game quests, elements, and settings were canon at the time, all of the user-created items and content were considered non-canon. The game eventually shut down on December 15, 2011.

Knights of the Old Republic Series

The Knights of the Old Republic series includes three games that take place approximately 4,000 years before the Star Wars movies.

Usually abbreviated KOTOR, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is a role-playing game released on Xbox on July 16, 2003 and for Microsoft Windows computers on November 19, 2003.

Developed by BioWare and published by LucasArts, you play as a Jedi fighting against the Sith Lord Darth Malak. Gameplay allows you to level up different light side and dark side skills, determining how you align with the Force throughout the story.

Developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by LucasArts, the sequel Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords was released on Xbox on December 6, 2004. The Microsoft Windows version came out on February 8, 2005.

Typically abbreviated KOTOR2, it picks up five years after the original when the Sith have nearly wiped out Jedi Order. As the player, you can decide to align with the light or dark side of the Force as you progress through the game.

The final game in the series is the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic. Originally developed by BioWare and published by EA, the game was released for Microsoft Windows on December 20, 2011.

It takes place approximately 300 years after the first two games but continues to follow the storyline between the Jedi and Sith.

Since its first release, there have been eight expansion packs with six of them coming out after the game was moved from canon to the Star Wars Legends timeline. Broadsword Online Games began developing the game in 2023.

Games in the Knights of the Old Republic Series:

  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (2003)
  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II (2004)
  • Star Wars: The Old Republic (2011)

Released on September 21, 2004 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2, and Xbox, Star Wars: Battlefront is a first and third-person shooter video game developed by Pandemic Studios and published by LucasArts.

The game lets you participate in major battels during the Prequel and Original Trilogies. Depending on the era, you can play as the Republic, the Confederacy of Independent Systems (CIS), the Galactic Empire, or the Rebels.

The sequel, Star Wars: Battlefront II, is also a first-person shooter and third-person shooter. Pandemic Studios and LucasArts returned to develop and publish the game, which was released on October 28, 2005.

Light side playable characters include Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Mace Windu, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Ledi, Chewbacca, and many more. Playable characters on the dark side include Darth Maul, Darth Sidious, Count Dooku, Jango Fett, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett, among others.

While the characters, locations, and technology in the original game were originally C-canon, the story was considered S-canon. The 2005 sequel was considered C-canon. While not explicitly stated, the three subsequent games were likely C-canon as well.

The Force Unleashed Series

The series includes two main titles, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (2008) and its sequel, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (2010).

The story revolves around Starkiller, a secret apprentice of Darth Vader, who hunts down and eliminates Jedi. The gameplay features intense lightsaber combat, powerful Force abilities, and a unique targeting system known as the “Euphoria” engine, which enhances the realism of character movements.

In the first game, Starkiller gradually becomes disillusioned with the dark side of the Force and rebels against his master, Darth Vader. The narrative explores the protagonist’s journey and his impact on the galaxy’s fate. The game also introduces the concept of the Rebel Alliance’s formation.

There were DLCs based on locations in the film series, Coruscant, Tatooine, and Hoth.

The sequel continues Starkiller’s story, exploring his quest for identity and purpose. The gameplay remains focused on lightsaber combat and Force powers, while the story delves into themes of cloning and manipulation.

A DLC continues the non-canonical dark side storyline and takes place during an alternate depiction of Return of the Jedi.

The series received praise for its engaging story, cinematic presentation, and innovative gameplay mechanics. However, it also faced criticism for some technical issues and perceived shortcomings in level design.

Sam Witwer voices Starkiller, later revealed in the novelizations as the former Jedi apprentice Galen Marek. Witwer also voices Emperor Palpatine in the fame. He would later go on to voice Maul in The Clone Wars, Rebels, and Rogue One.
