The Epic Games Store has so far been giving a wealth of games for free every week - except for the Holiday period in which they gave a total of 15 free games over 15 days. Although this week sees the roguelite strategy RPG Crying Suns offered up for free, next week will also offer a familiar sci-fi shooter as well…

That’s right, Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will be completely free to keep next week on the Epic Games Store. And just to be clear this is the most recent one from Dice, not the original Battlefront 2 that took up many of our childhoods. Either way it’s a great deal for a fun multiplayer shooter.

Disregarding all the negativity towards the game upon release, If you’re a big fan of Star Wars I can’t even stress how cool it is to be able to interact with some incredibly detailed environments from some iconic locations in the film. The game has also come a long way since the backlash at launch, so it’s certainly worth trying out if you get it for free.

Of course, no more content will be coming out for SWBF2 anymore, so it’s a great time to offer the game for free and rebuild that playerbase at least.

What do you think? Have you played Star Wars Battlefront 2? Do you think it has improved since launch? Let us know!

Has Star Wars Battlefront 2 redeemed itself?

What do you think of Star Wars Battlefront 2 now?

It won't matter, plus either way it'll be launching Origin whenever you play it regardless of the storefront.

Yeah it is good but how many live services can I experience at a time. I just can't anymore so I mostly look out for a good campaign.

You know keeping all the Negativity aside it is a great shooter Arcade by DICE!! The Guys Behind Battlefield and it has a 3rd Person Mode, Bots, Co-Op, Large scale Battles, Gorgeous Visuals and Amazing Audio. Whats Not to love seriously?

I played it when i got a free month of Ea Play after signing up for their security thing. and yeah I was super tempted to get the Game This Steam Sale. I must Say As a Battlefield 2142 Fan this is probably the closest we get to that GAME

Yeah for free its a good game but if you have to pay then no way. Underwhelming campaign of 4 hours just put me off. Jedi Fallen Order is a good Star Wars game and a good game period.

Yup the Campaing is nothing impressive. has a few cool moments and got cool cameos and all which are strange and kinda breaking the story flow to be honest but if you look at it as a good modern shooter. It is gold and totally worth on sale

I mean i love Battlefield dont get me wrong its a Brilliant Shooters but No Co-op, No Bots, Multiplayer or Campaing only meaning when the game is not popular you might as well throw it out the window. Co-op, Horde mode, Bots really make it

enjoyable 5-10 years down the line. I still consider Battlefield 2142 as my favorite Battlefield of all time. But Yes as a Star Wars Game with Star Wars as the primary factor the game is easily skippable

i Do not like many things that Epic Game Store has done Exclusives are a messy Business but that aside the Game you are buying dont really have forums reviews and you cant buy multiple games at a time so no massive discounts can be calimed

Top tier means older AAA that you can get for sub-10€?


Hard pass on Epic. They were an awful company even before they started buying out games. Or maybe it's just the CEO acting like a manchild?

I would say that SWBF2 came long way towards redeeming itself and actually becoming good game. Though it kind of way more due to EA screwing up with lootboxes and being forced to make it a better game. Its just shame it couldn't be good game since beginning. But don't get me wrong, it isn't anywhere nearr NMS level of redemption, but still. I definitely can say it is nice freebie to grab.

I've played it for a month on Origin with a free code for their monthly subscription and I liked it, hope I can transfer my progress to the Epic account.

Interesting. I was considering buying SW BF2 through origin, but i thought the player base would not be enough for me now and i decided not. I guess i'm lucky. . I went with TD2 Warlords of New York on ubisoft.

Will definitely add it to my free-game collection from them, can't say no to a free game.
