There are a lot of Star Wars video games out there. Even though the movie series has been around for years, there are still people who have never seen the movies before. It may be better known for the movies, but there were a lot of video game titles that had side stories, movie adaptations, and even unique adventures. However, some of these games may no longer be canon because Disney owns the IP. Check out some of our favourite games on the PlayStation 4 today if you want some fun Star Wars games.

Players can look around the set pieces and try to score as many points as possible. Interactive pinball: You’ll see the different characters move around the table and play minigames that put you right in the middle of the action. This is also a game that you can play.

2. Star Wars: Squadrons

Star Wars: Squadrons is a new video game made by Motive Studios for EA. It will be out soon. If you want to play a game about a spacecraft fighting with other spacecraft, this is the one for you! Right after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, players will be able to see a fight between the New Republic and the Empire. As a pilot for each force, this game has a campaign. There is also a lot of multiplayer support, so you can play with your friends! During 5v5 space dogfights, people will be able to fight each other.

3. Lego Star Wars Series
A lot of Lego Star Wars video games are already out, and more are planned. So we’re going to put all the Lego games together in one post and put it at the top of our list. There hasn’t been much of a hit with these games since they first came out into the market. They are fun. They’re kid-friendly, easy to understand, and they tend to stay close to the source material. Make sure to look for funny jokes as well. They make the games more fun. The Lego Star Wars series might surprise you with how much fun you have with it if you’re tired of the other more story-driven or real-world Star Wars games out there.
4. Super Star Wars
Platform: PS4, Super NES, Wii, PS Vita
Release Date: November 17, 2015
Genre: Run and gun, Action
A video game called Super Star Wars is a run and gun classic. It was made for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, which was made by Nintendo. Many people might think it’s a good choice because it’s a fun old game to play now. This game was first released in 1992, but it was released on the PlayStation 4 in 2015. Overall, the game is very similar to the movie, but there are a few small changes.
In some levels, players would be able to play as a number of different characters, such as Luke Skywalker or Han Solo. They would fight with lightsabers or blasters, for example. The game was either a side-scrolling game or there were changes made to the game for the PlayStation 4. Among other things, there was a new way to save, new leaderboards, and even trophies for players to get.
5. Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast
Platform: Nintendo Switch, PS4
Release Date: September 24, 2019
Genre: First-person shooterthird-person shooterhack and slash
In fact, Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast is a video game title that came out in 2002, but it’s not new. When you play this game, you play Kyle Katarn, who was a former Jedi who cut his connection to the Force. He was played by people like you. At the start of this game you’re a mercenary who is working with the New Republic, but as you can guess the plot thickens, and your need to use the former training as a Jedi comes back to play. A lot of attention is also paid to force powers and lightsabers in this game.
While this game did come out on the PlayStation 4, it didn’t have a very important part of it, and that was multiplayer. There were a lot of people who liked this game because they could fight other people with lightsabers, force abilities, or even guns from a first-person perspective. If you have a PlayStation 4, this game doesn’t have multiplayer. You can still play through a single-player campaign that’s a lot of fun.
6. Star Wars Battlefront 2
Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One
Release Date: November 17, 2017
Genre: First-person shooterThird-person shooter
A third-person shooter game called Star Wars Battlefront was EA’s first attempt at reviving the once-beloved series. There were some problems with the game when it first came out, so in 2017 we got a sequel that was supposed to solve some of those problems. Stars Wars Battlefront 2 came out, and it kept the same gameplay style as the first one did. This was still a third-person shooter set in the Star Wars universe. Players could choose to fight for the Empire or the Resistance in a variety of different maps. In addition to that, the game also has battles and places from the original, prequel, and most recent Star Wars movies, which is also called the Skywalker Saga.
It may be better known for its multiplayer action, but there was a single-player campaign that players could enjoy. It took place over a number of years from the Skywalker Saga, which is when the game took place. If you play Iden Versio, you’ll be a commander of the Special Forces team known as Inferno Squad. We won’t go into great detail about the story, but you play the role of Versio. First, the game takes place during the Return of the Jedi era. Players are tasked with destroying the Rebel Alliance once and for all with the help of the Death Star II. However, as you may know from the movie series, things don’t always go as planned. This has left Iden questioning her motives, her choices, and what’s best for everyone.
Some glitches and bugs have been found in this game. When it first came out, there was a lot of negative press about the different microtransactions and glitches and bugs that were found in it. This isn’t true at all. Over time, the development team made changes that would bring in more people and content that they would find interesting. There are still patches and fixes for this game that will keep it fun for both veterans and newcomers.
7. Star Wars Dark Forces
Movies of dogfighting from WWII to the heroic archetypes of ancient myth have all been used by Star Wars to come up with new ideas. In 1995, Dark Forces, a first-person shooter game based on the original Doom, came out. LucasArts’ “blaster-happy” game isn’t just a carbonite copy of its inspiration. It has a lot of small changes that let players look up, down, duck, and jump.
Of course, ithe d’s wasn’t only formula that had to be changed. It was four years after the “Thrawn trilogy” of books started the Star Wars Expanded Universe. LucasArts took the risk of making a whole new group of characters. Kyle Katarn is a young mercenary who wants to stop the creation of a deadly new type of stormtrooper. To go on the trip with Kyle were his right-hand woman, a Rebel who switched sides, and an Imperial officer by the name of Rom Mohc. What if there was a Star Wars game that had new characters, fast-paced action, and a new vision for the franchise? That’s about as good of a combination as you can find in any time.
8. Star Wars: Republic Commando
This is one of the best Star Wars games for Xbox. It’s a good shooter, which is a good foundation, but LucasArts adds some much-needed variety to the action by giving each of the four members of the squad their own unique voices and personalities. All have their own quirks, skills, and favourite places to work. This group of boys (and their AI, which is often very good) know how to get the job done. When you add in a lot of clever design choices and high-quality visuals (like the windshield cleaner), you get one of the few Star Wars games that truly shines on its own.
