Until January 21, Star Wars fans can grab a free copy of DICE’s multiplayer-oriented action-shooter sequel, Star Wars Battlefront II on the Epic Games Store. This happens to be the deluxe Celebration Edition, which includes two years’ worth of additional customization content such as special appearances (i.e., skins) and game updates.
“Be the hero in the ultimate STAR WARS battle fantasy with STAR WARS Battlefront II: Celebration Edition!,” a game description reads. “Get STAR WARS Battlefront II and the complete collection of customization content acquirable through in-game purchase from launch up to – and including – items inspired by STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER.”
Star Wars Battlefront II launched to poor reviews and was heavily criticized for its loot crate mechanics, but those of you who skipped the game due its controversy might as well check it out now that it’s free (retail price is $39.99). Here is what the Celebration Edition contains:
- Base Game

- More than 25 Hero Appearances
- Including six Legendary Appearances, plus one Appearance each for Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
