As has become tradition, all three of the major online game stores are celebrating May 4th with sales of Star Wars games. And by all three, I do mean Steam, GOG, and Epic Games. Like it or not, that’s just how things are. Anyways, the sale will take place from May 4th, aka Star Wars Day, until May 7th, and each platform has their own offer. So, enough talk, let’s get into the meat of the matter.
We, of course, start with Steam and their Star Wars offer. Here, you can find pretty much the most complete package. For one, there’s Jedi: Fallen Order for $36 / $40 for the Standard and Deluxe Edition, respectively. Then, there’s also a collection of older, classic Star Wars games, as well as Lego Star Wars, adding up to a total of 25 titles you can get on the cheap. To help you out with that, Steam is also offering two bundles: Star Wars: Complete Collection ($63 instead of around $240) and Star Wars Jedi Knight Collection ($7.50 instead of $29).
Then, we go over to GOG, aka CDPR’s game store. It has all of the older games that Steam offers, but, unfortunately, no Jedi: Fallen Order. And, they don’t really have the bundles like Steam does, either. On the other hand, all games on GOG are DRM-free, and besides, it’s the superior platform to Steam overall, if you ask me. But, that’s just a matter of preference, of course. Probably not the best choice if you want to keep your library in one place.
Last, but not least, is the Epic Games Store. The only Star Wars game they have on offer is Jedi: Fallen Order. It’s going for the same price as it is on Steam ($36 for the Standard Edition and $40 for the Deluxe Edition). But, hey, this is the only place where buying the game gets you the Imperial Stormtrooper skin in Fortnite. So, you know, swings and roundabouts.
