Epic Games Giving Away Star Wars Battlefront 2 for Free Next Week

Epic Games revealed another of its first few free games for 2021, and the latest reveal just so happens to be a thriving Star Wars game that people are still plenty active in. Starting on January 14th, Epic Games will give away Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition for free for all those who have an Epic Games Store account. It'll be available at no cost for a week starting on that day until it's replaced with a different free game on January 21st.

The updated schedule for the free Epic Games Store games was shared on the Epic Games' site itself where it lists the game that's currently free and the one that will be soon. Epic Games Store shoppers can pick up Crying Suns for free right now and will be able to do the same with Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition starting next week.

The Celebration Edition of the game was confirmed back in December 2019 whenever EA showed off some of its planned content for the Rise of Skywalker integrations. For those who are just now planning on getting into Star Wars Battlefront II through the game giveaway, you'll start with plenty of content unlocked to keep you busy.

Below is a preview of the game courtesy of EA's announcement that details everything which was included in the Celebration Edition when it launched:
