Star Wars Battlefront Celebrates May the 4th

By Kelly Packard, 1 year ago
Star Wars Day is approaching and EA doesn't intend to let it pass by without celebration.

May the 4th

On May 4th (May the 4th be with you... get it?) Xbox One Star Wars Battlefront players will receive a Jabba-the-Hut-sized login bonus and, speaking of Jabba the Hut, a new contract from him:

Log-In Reward – For one day only, players who log into Star Wars Battlefront will receive 4,444 credits to use on blasters, Star Cards, or the latest Hutt Contract.

New Hutt Contract – Jabba the Hutt has a new challenge waiting for all Star Wars Battlefront players on May the 4th! Spend 3500 to 8000 credits and complete bounties to unlock the powerful Bacta Bomb Star Card which provides a health boost to you and your allies.
If you happen to own a gaming rig, you can also try out Star Wars Battlefront for free on PC.

Origin Free Trial – If you haven’t given Star Wars Battlefront a try, the Origin team is hooking you up! Starting May 4 at 11 a.m. PT, players can visit to try the game for four hours for free and experience the different maps, game modes and missions the base game has to offer. This does not include Outer Rim or future expansion content.
There are also some benefits for the PC MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic and mobile game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, if that's more your thing.

If you're eager for more content after completing the new Jabba the Hut contract, Star Wars Battlefront's new "Bespin" DLC will be out in June.
