If you are as old as me and were a PC/N64 gamer as a kid, you probably remember 1999’s Star Wars Podracer. One of the great racers of the time. It included the race track from the movie, along with tons of other maps and podracers to give even more depth to the concept. You could upgrade your podracer by competing in races and winning, you could play with your friends, and it was quite challenging!
Although you can enjoy the paid re-release of the game on steam with upgraded graphics, modder and CH artist Rob Jin has recreated the essence of the game called Star Wars Podracer Fan Remake via the Unreal Engine 4 and it is absolutely glorious. There is no telling when and if Disney will be shutting this down, but for now you can get access to this for free and it is insanely easy to install.
To play Star Wars Podracer Fan Remake:
- Simply download the game files: Star Wars Podracer Fan Remake (let me know in the comments if this download goes down and I can help find another).
- Then simply run the SW_PR_2018.exe in the files. That’s it! Enjoy!
