For Star Wars Day, Steam, and Origin offer impressive discounts on dozens of classic games.

If you missed the excellent Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order last year, you can pick it up cheap at Steam, Epic and Origin. While Cal Kestis’ inaugural outing is going for $35.99 on Steam and the Epic store, you can grab it for $29.99 on EA’s Origin launcher. Buy the game on Epic, though, and you’ll nab a free Imperial Stormtrooper skin for Fortnite (though that deal is actually running through November).

EA is also offering the recent Battlefront games for as cheap as a pauper’s grave in the Jakku desert. Star Wars: Batllefront 2 is currently $5.99 on Origin. And, you can get the Ultimate Edition of Star Wars: Battlefront for $2.99.


Deals for the older games on offer are pretty standard across the board. Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2 are on sale ($3.49 each) at Steam, GOG, Humble, and Origin. Likewise, The Force Unleashed games, which are discounted to $6.99.

If none of those games are your thing, check the sites to see if anything appeals. There are many, many more Star Wars games on offer, including ‘90s favourites like TIE Fighter, X-Wing, Shadows of the Empire, and Episode I: Racer. And children of the ’00s rejoice: the PS2 Battlefront and Battlefront 2 are on sale for $4.99 and $3.49, respectively.

Here’s a link to the Origin sale. Follow this one for the Steam sale. Epic’s here. And click here for GOG.


Happy Star Wars Day! Enjoy responsibly!

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
