That said those visuals come by the way of 1999's Star Wars - X-Wing Alliance, albeit with its own updates courtesy of the impressive X-Wing Alliance Upgrade project (XWAU). Anyway the point is this - you can play the iconic LucasArts space-sim TIE Fighter with all new visuals, retaining the same missions, story, and expansion content.
The TIE Fighter Total Conversion (TFTC) project has been years in the making, with the goal being to recreate TIE Fighter in full. And now, it's available to play.
A full port of all the Classic TIE Fighter missions, including the expansions Defender of the Empire and Enemies of the Empire - a total of 76 campaign missions + the 28 original Training missions. This includes all the original voiceovers and cutscenes.
A Reimagined campaign of the first 8 Battles of TIE Fighter. These take the original missions, expand upon them for more ships, bigger battles or in some cases completely build new missions out of them but retaining the same overall narrative and story points of the original Classic. This campaign includes 37 fully playable campaign missions + 4 updated training scenarios.
That's a total of 145 unique missions between both the Classic and Reimagined versions!
Enjoy the amazing updated visuals for the X-Wing Alliance engine made possible by the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade project (XWAU), bringing this 22 year old game into the modern era of graphics.
VR Support, again thanks to the XWAU project.
Enjoy a fully remastered TIE Fighter soundtrack or even load up the old original MIDI soundtrack if you're feeling more nostalgic!
Rank up, collect memorabilia and earn medals in your pilot room as you progress!
Join the Secret Order of the Emperor as you play through and rank up those tattoos just like the original.
As per above you not only get support for modern visuals and aspect-rations, but VR too. Plus, the option to play certain missions in remastered format -- that is with more action and additional elements not found in the original.
