The Star Wars
Combine is a game set in the Star Wars Universe. The game has been
online since 1998 and although it is technically a browser game, it
sees itself rather as an MMORPG. It is programmed and run entirely by
volunteers, so playing is free. There are no monthly charges and no
premium features that are restricted to players who register a paid
The game is player driven, all roles - from the emperor or commander
of the Rebel Alliance to the fighter pilots - are open for player
characters. Combat is not implemented yet, but the player driven
economy offers many options to mine, trade or build cities,
facilities and stations.
Any new player can create their individual character selecting from
various skills and more than 50 different races from Star Wars
(Wookies, Twi'leks etc). They can then join an existing group - from
the infamous Empire to less famous smaller production, trading or
even pirate groups - and later found their own company.
There are more than 5,000 planets that can be explored and colonised.
Player characters can own their own ships, vehicles, buildings,
cities or even companies. Also player groups ("factions") can be
owners of anything, setting the Star Wars Combine apart from
alliances and guilds in many other similar games.
The Star Wars Combine offers many roles to choose from and thus
allows the player to not only live their own dream of being whatever
they want in the Star Wars universe, but also to adapt the game to
their favoured style of play, playing the game as more of an
adventure, a strategy game, a business sim, or just enjoying the
lively community of like minded gamers and Star Wars fans.
Despite the current lack of combat the Star Wars Combine offers a
complexity and variety rather unusual for free browser games. If you
like Star Wars, you should really give it a go.
