The Epic Games Store has an incredible bundle of three Star Wars titles for an equally incredible price: Star Wars: Squadrons, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Deluxe Edition, and Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition for £40.
There really is something for everyone here, so snap it up pronto. Squadrons, the most recent entry in the Star Wars series of games, offers exhilarating space dogfights as a member of The New Republic and The Empire, swapping between the conflicting factions and turning the tide in epic fleet battles. Alternatively, players can strategise 5v5 online multiplayer skirmishes, and pilot some of the most iconic starfighters from the movies, like the A-wing and the TIE bomber. If you like Elite Dangerous, then it's a very similar gameplay experience, letting the player divert power to different systems dependent on how daring the fight becomes.
Usually, I'd hand it over to Dean Abdou to sing the praises of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but I'll do my best here. Set five years after Revenge of the Sith, the young Cal Kestis is hiding from the Galactic Empire until an accident puts his friend's life in danger, and he uses the Force to save him. Travelling across planets to find a Holocron holding the names of Force-sensitive children before the Sith Inquisitors discover it and use it to kill them, Cal develops his abilities and becomes a fearsome fighter under the tutelage of the former Jedi Knight Cere Junda. The combat is punishing yet rewarding, taking inspiration from Soulslike titles, and the Deluxe Edition bags you a digital artbook, director's cut behind-the-scenes videos, and cool skins for BD-1 and the Mantis.
Last but not least, there's Star Wars Battlefront II, which was originally in a slipshod state when it launched in 2017. Three years do a galaxy of good to a game, and EA uprooted the silly number of microtransactions, offered regular free updates, and improved the gameplay experience into a tightly-focused shooter. The Celebration Edition comes with the complete collection of cosmetic content purchasable in the game from launch, featuring items inspired by Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker.
It's worth noting that you won't be able to buy this bundle if you claimed Star Wars Battlefront II while it was being given away by Epic earlier this month. Which is odd. Furthermore, if you subscribe to EA Play, you've already got access to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Star Wars Battlefront II. Still, £40 is an exceptional price for these three games, and without the bundle, they would cost £130 altogether. It's a done deal, in my book, and the offer ends on January 28th.
