May the 4th be with you.
In celebration of May 4th, the unofficial ‘Star Wars Day’, Electronic Arts will be offering free Star Wars Battlefront trials for PC, along with a load of other trinkets, including its other Star Wars games (via. Polygon).
The free trial grants players four hours with Battlefront, starting at 6p.m UK time/11a.m PT. This won’t include any of the game’s premium content, but following a series of hefty updates since its November launch, there’s still a lot play with here. The trial expires at 9a.m UK time/2a.m PT on May 5.
Those who already own Battlefront will receive 4,444 in-game credits to spend on equipment, skins, and other items. whilst the “Bacta Bomb” will be available by way of a new “Hutt Contract” – which migh be up your street if you’re interested in gunging your enemies with a mass of exploding goo.
Star Wars: The Old Republic is also offering a free trial of its expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire, allowing players to begin with a character of level 60. This trial begins on May 30. Log-in rewards will also be offered by The Old Republic, as well as double XP over the coming week.
Finally, the mobile card game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes will be doubling drop rates and offering crystal packs at a discount.
