After 19 years, the classic podracing game Star Wars: Episode I Racer has been re-released for PC on GOG.
Best known as an N64 game, the GOG version is functionally a port of the original PC version released in 1999 (not a remaster or remake) allowing it to run on modern operating systems. This is the first time people will actually be able to buy Racer since it came out on Dreamcast in 2000 — unless you manage to find a very old physical copy, of course.
As you can see in the video at the top of the page, Racer can run at 60fps and 1080p resolution, though playing the game at a 16x9 resolution does stretch it from its original 4x3 format. Its LAN multiplayer mode is also working in the GOG version, allowing up to eight players to race against each other as long as they are connected to the same network.
