This coming Saturday is May 4th, the unofficial Star Wars "May the Fourth Be With You" holiday. Around this time, most online and brick and mortar retailers will offer heavy discounts on all things Star Wars, ranging anywhere from apparel to toys to video games.
Xbox and the Microsoft Store are getting ahead of the game by offering a number of large discounts on Star Wars games between now and the end of the weekend. All of these deals are available in the United States, Australia, and the UK.
The most noteworthy deals being offered are the ones surrounding the newer releases of Star Wars Battlefront. The 2015 version of Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition is on sale currently for just $5. The ultimate edition includes the base game plus each of the DLC maps: Outer Rim, Bespin, Death Star, and Scariff. The game also comes with extra content included in the Deluxe edition, such as Han Solo's blaster.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 has also been discounted to $7.50, and the Battlefront 2's DLC is free for everyone. Those looking to pick up both games will be able to buy them together as part of the Star Wars Battlefront: Hoth Bundle, which includes both games listed above, as well as Hoth-inspired cosmetics for Luke, Leia, and Han. The bundle is listed at $10, which is 67% off its normal price.
The last deal listed for now is Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens at 50% off ($10). Originally launching in 2016, the game relives the story from the 2015 film, as well as additional stories bridging the gap between Episode VII and VIII, through the eyes of multiple characters, such as Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron. The deluxe version is listed at $15, and includes all of the game's season pass content, such as character packs from The Prequel Trilogy, Star Wars: Rebels, and The Empire Strikes Back, to name a few.
Star Wars Day Game Deals for Xbox One
- LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens: $10.00
- LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Deluxe Edition): $15.00
- Star Wars Battlefront (Ultimate Edition): $5.00
- Star Wars Battlefront 2: $7.50
There's a good chance other deals will appear in the coming days on other markets, such as the PlayStation Store and Nintendo eShop. It might be a good time to stake up on a few games set in the Star Wars universe to hold over for the eventual release of Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, when it releases in November, as well as Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, when it hits theaters the following month.
