Star Wars Battlefront 2 is free on Epic right now – Rock Paper Shotgun

EAs special reign over Star Wars game draws to a close with the news that Ubisoft are making an open-world Star Wars video game, making this a curious week for the Epic Games Store to give away Star Wars Battlefront 2. For the next seven days, you can grab a complimentary copy of Dices for all sorts of authentically Star Wars-y zapping and swording in singleplayer and multiplayer modes.

Oh, however to be clear: this is 2017s Star Wars Battlefront 2, not 2005s Star Wars: Battlefront 2. Only a fool would confuse those 2.
Our previous Matt (RPS in peace) quite liked the singleplayer project, stating it “definitely prospers at immersing you inside the Star Wars universe”. The multiplayer was another matter, not least of all due to the fact that it was filled with a mess of loot boxes and currencies.
While its not clear precisely whats decreased in between EA and Disney, whether their 10-year exclusivity deal is ending early or what or why, the 2 arent parting ways yet. Lucasfilm Games said the other day that they have “a variety of jobs underway with the talented teams at EA”. But its tough not to imagine that Disney werent super-pleased with Battlefront 2 being the flashpoint for a loot box reaction that led to numerous nations deciding many loot boxes are prohibited betting.

Life comes at you quickly, eh Grogu?
