Join gaming leaders, alongside GamesBeat and Facebook Gaming, for their 2nd Annual GamesBeat & Facebook Gaming Summit | GamesBeat: Into the Metaverse 2 this upcoming January 25-27, 2022. Learn more about the event.
Update: GOG.com officially announced the release of the LucasArts classics, and you can get them right now.
It looks like Disney won’t let the beloved classic library of developer LucasArts wither in its vault.
Rumors suggest that classic-gaming distribution website GOG.com will announce that it will start offering several LucasArts games on its service tomorrow. Savvy GOG fans have scoured the company’s website for evidence of what it has in store, and they have found forum threads for several of LucasArts’ biggest games:
- TIE Fighter: Special Edition
- X-Wing: Special Edition
- Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
- Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
- Sam & Max Hit the Road
The games are listed at $10 each — although we don’t know if that’s the actual price should they appear on the service.

Now, don’t take this as a confirmation, but it seems likely that we’ll get all of these games tomorrow. We’ve asked GOG for more.
