Get STAR WARS Battlefront II: Celebration Edition for Free

STAR WARS Battlefront II: Celebration Edition is now available on the Epic Games Store as their latest weekly giveaway. The celebratory aspects of this version of the Windows shooter includes all its possible in-game purchases released prior to December 20, 2019, including items based on Rise of Skywalker. Picking this up before the new freebie goes live next Thursday means it's yours to keep. At that time the next free game will be Galactic Civilizations III. Their description is a bit lacking, so here's word on the original game when it launched back in 2017:
Star Wars Battlefront II allows fans to play as and against Star Wars’ most feared villains and cherished heroes in DICE’s rich multiplayer experience, including Darth Maul, Rey, Yoda, and joining this December, Finn and Captain Phasma. There’s something for everyone in six different multiplayer modes: Starfighter Assault, Galactic Assault, Strike, Blast, Heroes vs. Villains, and Arcade. High in variety and breadth, Galactic Assault allows up to 40 players to step into battle as one of four distinct classes with a massive array of vehicles and customizable weapons in new in-game locations including Yavin 4’s jungle canopies, Kamino's cloning facilities, and Kashyyyk's Wookiee filled forests. Space combat has been designed from the ground up and brought to life by the legendary Criterion Games in Starfighter Assault, featuring distinct handling, weapons, and customization options through Star Cards. Players can immerse themselves in thrilling, multi-stage battles in space and choose from three unique starfighter classes and iconic hero ships including Darth Maul's Scimitar and Poe Dameron's T-70 X-wing. In Arcade, fans can jump into offline single-player or on consoles, split-screen couch co-op, allowing them to take on AI enemies and hone their skills across a variety of scenarios.

New to Star Wars Battlefront II is a carefully crafted and authentic Star Wars story developed by Motive Studios in partnership with Lucasfilm. The campaign helps to tell the story of what happened in the empire after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi from the perspective of an all new hero, Iden Versio, leader of Inferno Squad. In addition to exploring iconic locations from the films, players will be introduced to new ones including the coral planet of Pillio and Iden’s home planet of Vardos.

Nope.

Literally 100x times better than what goes on today. DRM in every piece of software you use, 12 different launchers to play the same game. Plus the point of being able to choose your server instead of being pushed into a server with a bad ping.

This game is a lot of fun if you like Star Wars and/or first person shooters. They managed to add almost every battle from the older movies and a few from the later ones into the game.

This works for me. I have it on PS4Pro and I am terrible with the controller during infantry combat. Now I can join in on PC and be a slightly better (worse?) target for the actually good players.

edit: so this whole conversation was feeling very deja vu like so I did a quick search and it turns out I already own this on PC. I vaguely remember a conversation about this game recently and so I looked on Steam and have it. Oh well, hope I didn't pay much.

IIRC it was on sale for $5 or $10 at one point.

That's it...the star wars stuff was part of a sale during the holidays or something.

Another free game? Why not? Not that I will probably ever install it, since multiplayer shooters are something I rarely play these days.

Unlike the first BF1, this one has bots you can play against offline. It also has coop modes that you can play with a friend.

Ah, the good old old days where you had to muck around with autoexec.exe and config.sys.

OMG, I think I repressed those memories... the early days of online gaming were truly painful. Although not as bad as having to use dial-up to check email....

Yeah... They lured me in with Squadrons for $12 a couple weeks ago, but I couldn't believe the awful entanglement of launchers they have going on there. Having to activate the game through Origin is understandable, but that does not actually add it to your Origin library... It's just a shortcut back to the Epic launcher, which then tells Origin to download and install or start the game. So both of them pop up and have to be running while you play, regardless of where you start it from.

They do that for EA games bought on Steam now, too (I bought Battlefront II there over the holidays), but they didn't used to. Much of my Origin library is stuff I bought from Steam back in the day, before they had a fit over MTX money. Ubisoft games have always given you a legit, standalone license on their launcher regardless of where you bought them from, which is why I've never really minded Uplay. I gladly accept Epic's bribe money to buy Ubi games there, 'cause once they're activated, I don't need EGS to do anything else.

It is a beautiful looking and smooth running engine.
I bought the first game when it was already old news but fully fleshed out.
This one...EA's antics at the time made sure I would never buy it.
But free? Hell yeah. Happy

I agree that all these service launchers and launchers-within-launchers is annoying as hell though.
