Lots Of Star Wars PC Games Discounted For Star Wars Day
Get the original Battlefront 2, KOTOR, and more for cheap.
In preparation for Star Wars's annual day-based-entirely-on-a-bad-joke May 4 celebration, PC retailer GOG is running a sale based around the legendary sci-fi property. Nearly 20 games are included in the promotion, which is currently offering up to 77% off. (The original Star Wars was, of course, released in 1977.)
That means Star Wars: Battlefront II (2005), Knights of the Old Republic, and Knights of the Old Republic II are each on offer for $2.29 (£1.89). Other classics are also discounted, including Dark Forces ($1.37 / £1.19), Republic Commando ($2.29 / £1.89), and Empire at War ($4.59 / £3.69). GOG also stated that on Star Wars day itself, May 4, every game will be 75% off. Check out the full list of games on offer here.
The popular Battlefront series got rebooted in 2015 with EA's Star Wars Battlefront. Its sequel was recently revealed with a new trailer, while the full game is scheduled to arrive on November 17 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The FPS features a campaign set up in a new novel and an offline co-op mode that's not available on PC, as well as multiplayer modes introduced in the 2015 reboot.

Update: GOG.com originally told us that every game in the sale was 77% off. The retailer has now informed us that the games are up to 77% off, except on May 4 itself, when every game will be 75% off. The games listed in the story all happen to still be 77% off, however, so they remain at their prices stated here.
