Return to the Old Republic
It’s May 4th, or May The Fourth, the day that’s become the designated Star Wars day. It’s meant a bevy of updates, trailers, and even some neat-looking Xbox consoles. But there are also a bunch of sales on Star Wars games happening too.
Star Wars games are discounted across a ton of different platforms right now. Thankfully, the Star Wars blog has aggregated a bunch of them all into one neat place. They range from PC discounts on classics to more modern games and yes, Switch deals too. So if you’ve been looking for some classic Star Wars on Switch, now’s a good time.
We rounded up a few of our highlights from today’s sales below.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
The classic BioWare RPG Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is discounted on several different platforms. It’s 50% off on the App Store and Google Play Store for phones, and 25% off on the Switch eShop. If you want a deeper discount and a more classic way to play, you can also head over to Steam, where it’s currently 65% off, bringing KOTOR down to just $3.49.
Star Wars: Republic Commando
Speaking of classics, Star Wars Republic Commando is also on sale. Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 owners get a 50% deal, while Steam cuts it down to 65% off. Pretty decent price for some classic squad-based shooter action.
Aspyr Star Wars Heritage Pack
Don’t want to pick between all the older Star Wars games? Aspyr, the studio that’s been steadily re-releasing and porting many old Star Wars games, has a special pack for Switch. Included in the lineup are Republic Commando, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Episode I: Racer, and The Force Unleashed. Reports are saying it’s only showing up on the system store at the moment, but we’ll keep an eye out for a link to put here.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
For the modern Star Wars aficionado, it’s hard to go wrong with Fallen Order. The action-adventure entry from Respawn was a pretty solid success, and it’s only $9.99 on the PlayStation Store, Xbox, and Steam right now.
Bundle it all up
Too indecisive? Too many classics? Or you just want an absolute glut, a veritable mountain of Star Wars content? Well, Steam has the answer.
The Jedi Knight Collection ropes together everything from Dark Forces up through Jedi Academy for just $9. X-Wing Series has, you guessed it, all the X-Wing games for just $10. The Star Wars Classic Collection ties in the Galactic Battlegrounds saga and Rebellion, plus some surprising classics like Star Wars: Rebel Assault, for $18. Or you can go big with the Star Wars Complete Collection, which seems to have more Star Wars than any one person should consume in a sitting for $76. It is not for the faint of heart.
