Star Wars Day bonuses revealed for Battlefront, The Old Republic

EA outlines what special events are taking place between now and May 4.

May 4, better known as Star Wars Day, is coming up next week, and EA plans to mark the occasion with bonus events in several of its Star Wars games.

Star Wars Battlefront will offer players who log in on May 4 a free bundle of 4,444 credits. A new Hutt Contract will also be available on that day; this is a new feature announced in March that gives players the chance to pay credits and then complete bounties to earn rewards. In this case, spending between 3,500 and 8,000 credits unlocks new bounties that will let you get your hands on the Bacta Bomb Star Card. This gives a health boost to you and your teammates.

Additionally, EA will offer free access to Battlefront on PC in the form of a 4-hour trial. You'll be able to grab the game from Origin beginning at 11 a.m. PT on May 4 and try it out, but you won't have access to any of the DLC that's currently available.

Star Wars: The Old Republic players will also be getting bonuses for Star Wars Day, including some that are available right now. From now until May 30, the Knight of the Fallen Empire expansion can played for free. Logging in between now and May 4 also rewards you with a M4-I6 Zakuulan Astromech Droid mini-pet, pictured below.

Playing The Old Republic between May 3 through May 10 will also award double experience, double PvP commendations, double requisitions in Starfighter and double legacy experience.

Finally, the quietly good mobile game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes will offer a 25 percent discount on crystals (the premium in-game currency) on May 4. And from April 30 until May 5, a different game mode will offer double rewards each day, starting with Cantina Battles.
