Star Wars Battlefront for PS4 and Xbox One are going for as low as $18 on Amazon right now, meaning this might be the right time to join the fight in a galaxy far, far away.
This could be the sale you're looking for. Star Wars Battlefront is sporting a very reasonable price tag on Amazon right now for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game at only $18.
The PC version is just two bucks more. The sales are only being offered by third-party sellers, but Amazon is fulfilling all orders. Unfortunately, these prices are just for physical versions of the game, so thank the Prime gods it can be delivered as soon as tomorrow.
While this isn't the first sale the game has seen, it is certainly the lowest. There is no indication of how long these deals will be around either, so those who have been patiently waiting price drop to dive in, this is likely the best they'll get.
Star Wars Battlefront received a fairly positive response from critics and fans, but was under scrutiny because of its lack of a single-player campaign. As a fair warning to newcomers: this hasn't changed. But gobs of new content has been added since launch, a lot of it free, so there's plenty to do, and even more coming down the pipe.
An offline skirmish mode launched couple months ago, which allows split-screen co-op, as well as a single player mode against bots. This might alleviate some of the multiplayer woes gamers were feeling.
The Death Star DLC just dropped, which gives everyone the opportunity to live out one of the classic Star Wars fantasies of destroying the Death Star with some well-aimed proton torpedoes -- made easier by The Force, of course. Battlefront is also expected to get tie-in DLC with the upcoming Star Wars Rogue One film.
The lack of a single-player campaign, and general lack of content at the game's inception, coupled with the $60 price tag was a huge deterrent for some gamers. But now, with the generous cost and loads more to do, it'll be hard to make a good case for not buying the game -- unless someone is just not into it. It's also worth taking into account the various bug fixes and tweaks that have been implemented that new players won't have to suffer through.
If there was ever a better time to start playing Star Wars Battlefront, this is surely it.
Star Wars Battlefront is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
