New PS Plus Subscribers Can Grab Star Wars Battlefront For Free In Europe
You can get a free game with 12-month PS Plus subscriptions "for a limited time."
Sony has announced a new promotion on 12-month PlayStation Plus subscriptions in Europe. Those who aren't currently subscribed can grab a free copy of Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition on PS4 when signing up for a year's worth of the premium service via the PlayStation Store.
PS Plus costs £40 / €50 for a 12 month subscription, while Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition currently sells for £30 / €40. Once you've purchased the subscription, you'll receive a download code for the game around "5-10 days after purchase," according to Sony.
This promotion is valid "for a limited time," and it's unclear if it applies throughout the rest of the world--GameSpot has contacted Sony to clarify if US and Australian customers can take advantage of the offer. You won't be able to get the free game if you're already a member of PS Plus.
Battlefront's Ultimate Edition includes the base game, four expansion packs, 11 added weapons, and 24 upgraded Star Cards. Those four expansions are Outer Rim, Bespin, Death Star, and Rogue One: Scarif, and together they include new maps, game modes, and heroes.
Publisher EA recently revealed Star Wars Battlefront II, launching on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Unlike the 2015 game, Battlefront II will have a single-player campaign. It picks up after the end of Return of the Jedi and covers the 30-year span between that movie and The Force Awakens. The multiplayer, meanwhile, includes characters and locations from "all eras" of the Star Wars timeline.
