Game Features

Choose Your Path

Choose to play as a pilot for the Rebel Alliance, the Galactic Empire, or as an independent neutral adventurer/privateer. Play interconnected story campaigns, stand-alone-missions, and even quick multiplayer matches for all factions.

Custom Controls

Tune the game to suite your own style with multiple customization and difficulty settings. Playing with multiple joysticks? The game supports using up to four separate devices for controls. Playing with just a mouse and keyboard? Use the in-game toggle to allow your mouse to make wide sweeping turns in maneuver-mode then switch back to aiming-mode to land precise shots.

Creative Capabilities

Fate of the Galaxy comes with a feature-rich, open-source mission editor. With this tool you can create your own custom missions with full creative control and even share your work with the community.

Optimized for Many

Game visuals are tuned to the Original Trilogy and have been highly optimized to support large battles that run smoothly on Linux or PC. Even players that do not have a dedicated graphics card can still play the game smoothly if they adjust a few graphics options.
