As many of you know by now, today is Star Wars Day, also known as “May the 4th Be With You”. An official celebration of the Star Wars saga that takes place every year on May 4th and in which all kinds of events related to Star Wars are usually organized, including announcements and premieres of audiovisual productions.
And, of course, Star Wars has also remembered the world of video games in this special celebration. Starting today, you can take advantage of dozens of offers on Star Wars-branded video games, including free games and various collaborations with popular video games, such as Rocket League and Fortnite. And hurry, because some of these offers will only be available for one day only.
Free Star Wars Day Games
Star Wars fans are in luck. From today, May 4, until the end of the month, you will be able to download two video games from the Star Wars saga completely free of charge. On the one hand, on Xbox Series X/S you will have available Star Wars: Episode I Racer, a driving game based on Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in which the player will be able to get into the shoes of Anakin Skywalker and other pilots of the film.
On the other hand, Amazon Prime subscribers can now claim, through the Prime Gaming website, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D, a remastering of a classic of the saga in which we can take to the skies with the famous X-Wing of the Rebel Alliance.
Star Wars Day Collaborations
Star Wars is also present in other popular video games through various collaborations. First, we find the new skins for Fortnite of Anakin Skywalker, Dart Maul, Padme Amidala and the clone troopers. The clone trooper skin is free, but for the rest you will have to checkout.
Secondly, the official Minecraft store is putting many of its Star Wars-related items on sale. In addition to these offers, Minecraft players will be able to get a free Ewok mask and an R2-D2 hat.
