If money is all you've love, then that's what you'll receive.
This coming Wednesday is May the 4th, everybody's favorite terrible pun day, and EA is celebrating with every 'Star Wars' title they've got.
For starters, their mobile game, 'Galaxy of Heroes' will be offering a 25% off sale on crystals on the day. In addition, starting today up till May 5th, various game modes will be offering double the rewards, starting with Cantina Battles.
As for 'The Old Republic', just logging into the thing between now and May 5th will net you your very own M4-I6 Zakuulan Astromech as a mini-pet. In addition, between May 3rd and May 10th, regular/legacy XP, PvP commendations, and Starfighter requisitions are all doubled. That would be a prime week to level up in a hurry.
Lastly of course, is 'Star Wars Battlefront'. Just logging in on May 4th nets you 4,444 credits. There will also be a new Hutt contract available which, after spending between 3,500 and 8,000 credits and upon completion will net players a Bacta Bomb Star card, which will boost health for an entire team when used. Best of all, though, PC gamers with an Origin account will be able to play the game free for four hours starting at 11am Pacific that day. Granted, you won't be able to access any of the DLC, but it's still a pretty decent chunk of game you'll be able to plow through. Overall, not a bad way to spend a Star Wars Day.
