If you have a subscription to Discord’s Nitro Games service, then the Force is strong with you this morning. The company announced this morning that it’s teamed up with Disney and Lucasfilm to bring seven classic games to the service, with two Star Wars favorites available now!
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and its sequel, The Sith Lords, are ready for play. More will come to the service in the months ahead. These include the cult classic Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, as well as The Secret of Monkey Island. Star Wars: Jedi Academy and Star Wars: Republic Commando are on the way as well. More will come later over the summer.
“Star Wars is a huge part of our culture and we have all grown up experiencing this galaxy through films, games and more. We are thrilled to work with such a massive brand to bring these iconic games to the Nitro subscription service,” says Jason Citron, CEO of Discord Inc. “Our commitment to users is to work with the best in interactive entertainment to bring our players closer to the content and communities they love. Collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney is a huge step in fulfilling that promise.”
For those unfamiliar with Nitro Games, it’s a subscription service with over 80 titles for just $9.99 a month. It’s optional, of course, but a nice option for those that feel a cash crush as of late. And with the Star Wars games on the way, it’s a worthwhile bargain. Let’s just hope we see Shadows of the Empire and Rogue Squadron down the road, yeah?
We’ll let you know what other titles are coming as they become available. But it’s clear that Discord has altered the deal for its subscribers. And further alterations – well, we don’t have to pray for those, right?
