Star Wars: Battlefront II will be free next week on the Epic Games Store

Epic Games isn't stopping their trend of giving games away anytime soon, going by what they have on offer for next week. Star Wars: Battlefront II's Celebration Edition is set to be the latest giveaway game on Epic's launcher, starting later this month. EA and DICE's 2017 shooter has been under much controversy and criticism since even before launch, due to the game's lootbox mechanics, which were removed and later refined to not impact gameplay. You can grab the game when it becomes available for free on January 14th.

Currently, Crying Suns is the free game on tap from Epic--a tactical roguelite game that considers itself as "FTL meets Dune". It's normally priced at $24.99, and can be gotten for free until January 14th.

This version apparently offers the Single Player and Fake Multiplayer (sorta like CS with bots).

Time to make an EGS account, get the game, and not play it because I can't run it on my PC :yay:
You should have made one about two years ago. They've been giving away a ton of quality games.

The game is actually not that hard to run. I have a laptop with an low tier MX250 and the game runs fine at decent settings (medium 900p with antialiasing).
If only it were the good Battlefront II. :(
As someone who grew up with the og battlefront 2, this game can be very fun and challenging. The supremecy mode is a really good callback if thats the stuff you're looking for.

I feel like people forget that the p2w loot boxes were removed before the game fully released and was only in the game for a few days for EA access players

Nah; don't support a barebones service that, last I heard, lacked something as simple as a shopping cart. And has a history of buying exclusivity, on a platform that reviles such practices.

Don't see anywhere that it will have gimped features. Source?
Highly unlikely that they would put effort into locking off parts of the game as it is discontinued, I couldn't find anywhere saying so either. Might have gotten confused by the Celebration Edition branding
The Celebration Edition includes the base game plus all of the "paid" dlc cosmetics. The only cosmetics locked are pre order bonuses, challenges, or easter eggs. (Source: I own the celebration edition)
