Next week is Star Wars day, May the 4th, and as a part of the celebration EA is offering a variety of bonuses in Star Wars titles. There will be gifts for players of Star Wars BattlefrontStar Wars: The Old Republic, and even Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes.


In Battlefront players who log on on the 4th of May will get a bundle of 4,444 credits. There will also be a new Hutt contract that if you complete it you will get access to a Bacta Bomb Star Card, this power-up will give you and your teammates a health boost. If you don't own Battlefront but do have a PC that can run in then you're also in luck as you can play a 4 hour free trial through Origin beginning at 11am PT on May 4th. You can explore as much as you want in those 4 hours, the only condition is that you won't have access to any of the available DLC.

Star Wars: The Old Republic players will get a variety of bonuses that have already begun. Until May 30th you are able to play the Knight of the Fallen Empire expansion for free, and if you log in before May 4th then you will get a M4-I6 Zakuulan Astromech Droid mini-pet to join you on your adventure. Between May 3rd and May 10th there will also be double experience, double PvP commendations, double requisitions, and double legacy experience.


Lastly the mobile game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes will be giving a 25% discount on crystals, the premium currency, on the 5th of May. From today until the 5th of May the game will also be offering double rewards each day.
