Later this month, Star Wars fans will get to witness the rise of Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story, but before that, they get to celebrate Star Wars Day on May the 4th. While this date is mostly used to push physical wares and retail details, there are also gaming deals to be found.
The Star Wars website has issued a list of the in-game deals that players can find across their various Star Wars games. These include the following:
- Star Wars: Force Arena will open up pre-registration this Thursday for the upcoming Solo update. This includes new content and characters from the aforementioned theatrical release. If the pre-registration number surpasses 200,000, all players will get a Legendary Wild Card. Speaking of freebies, special 40th anniversary characters like Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader will also be available for free or at a discounted rate. All in-app purchases will go for 30 percent off, to boot. More information can be found on the Star Wars: Force Arena forums.
- Star Wars: Commander on mobile devices will offer free bonus crystals and a look at the new AT-DT Walker from the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story. All in-app purchases are also going for 30 percent off. These bonuses will be available from now through May 10.
- Those playing Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes can jump into the game on May 4 and grab free shards for their Han Solo character. All Crystal Bundles will also be discounted from May 4-11.
- Disney Tsum Tsum players on mobile devices will find Star Wars characters pop up in their games from May 3-11, along with Solo-themed puzzles.
- Those playing Disney Emoji Blitz on mobile devices can log in from May 4-6 for 30 percent off select purchases. They'll also get a free emoji for Rey, Finn, or BB-8 by logging in on May 4.
- One of the more exciting deals is on Zen Studios' Star Wars Pinball. Users on iOS can grab Star Wars Pinball 6 (containing tables for The Last Jedi and Ahch-To Island) for absolutely free on Google Play, iOS, and the Amazon App Store. Those looking for even more Star Wars Pinball can grab the Knights of the Old Republic table for half-off, along with discounts on other Star Wars tables. Discounts are set to run from May 3-10, but some of them (including the free Star Wars Pinball 6 offer) are running right now.
There are also numerous deals going across the PC and console space, including a vast sale on PC Star Wars games on GOG.com, the Humble Store, and Steam. Console users can also find deals on the PlayStation Store and scattered across the Xbox Live Marketplace. We'll have more details on these sales during the weekly deals posts this Friday, but everyone is welcome to browse those storefronts right now.
