There are five different multiplayer game types: Dogfight, Rampage, Tag and Defend, Special, and co-op.

  • Dogfight is a simple one-on-one battle in the spacecraft of your choice.
  • Rampage involves players getting points via destroying things.
  • Tag and Defend is the most complicated. Players must control certain buildings. You generate 1 point per 15 seconds per building you control. Buildings you control automatically begin building defenses. You can capture enemy buildings by destroying them. Whoever reaches the point limit first wins.
  • Special is composed of races through well-known Star Wars locales and and a version of Rampage but with ground vehicles.
  • Co-op is a campaign style of play. Most of the co-op levels are single-player levels from Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, with minor changes.
