May the fourth be with you.
Calling all Star Wars fans! May the fourth is approaching quickly and EA has some fantastic deals in store for you! EA released some information on games that players will see receiving updates and free trials in celebration of Star Wars Day.
Starting at 11 a.m. PT on May 4, Origin users will be able to access Starwars: Battlefront for four hours, completely free. However, this doesn’t include any of the DLC or Future expansions which does mean that you will only be able to play the base game. Those who own the game on any platform and login on Star Wars Day will also receive some additional bonuses such as: 4,444 credits which you can use on blasters, a new contract from Jabba the Hutt, and Star Cards.
There is also a free trial of Knights of the Fallen Empire running from now to May 30. You can play through the game from chapter one onward while building your alliance with a new level 60 character. If players login to Star Wars: The Old Republic between now and May 4, they will also receive a free M4-I6 Zakuulan Astromech DroidTM Mini-Pet as well as a chance to earn Double XP from May 3 – 10.
However, no Star Wars Holiday would be complete without mentioning Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes will have a Double Drop event lasting until May 5. The event will feature double drop rates which will include: Credits, Ability Materials, Training Droids, Sim Tickets, and Character Shards which can be earned while playing different game modes. Those who also buy Crystal Bundles on May 4 will receive 25% more Crystals with their purchase.
