A few days ago, I wrote this article about Battlefront II being Free on epic games and all the thing you need to know before claiming the game.
First of all, go to epic games and claim the game, using whatever you have. You only need a browser to claim this game.
Some people have previously owned the game, for some it’s first time and everyone has some confusions but don’t worry. Here, I’ll be clearing all your confusions and will answer all of them.
Frequently Asked Questions-
Do you have to pay anything else?
Many people asked if they will have to pay anything in the future like playing the multiplayer part of the game or anything else. The answer to this is a big NO. You don’t have to pay for anything, not even playing multiplayer—nothing after claiming the game. And if you bought the game before, the only extra payable thing in the game was to upgrade the game to Celebration Edition which brings us to next question.
What is Celebration Edition and how do you know if you have it?
Celebration edition is just an addition to the normal game, which includes some extra stuff like cosmetic and everything. And the good part is you are getting it for just free.
To make sure that you have the celebration edition, start the game, and you must see this banner there, that means you have the celebration edition.
Can I get this game on consoles like xBox or PS?
Well you can’t, and that is because this offer is brought to you by Epic games and it is not available on consoles.
Will I not be able to play the game after the deadline?
The deadline to claim this game is 21 January 9:30 IST (convert it to your region) and it is just the date after which you will have to pay to own this game. Think of it as a discount, 100% discount. You’re buying the game at 0$ and you legally fully own the game after that. You’ll even get an invoice for it on your email. So if you’re able to claim the game before this deadline, you basically own the game forever.
What is the download size of the game and do you have to download it before the deadline?
Well, the download size of this game is 90GB on origins. Yeah, that’s a lot, but you don’t have to download it before the deadline. You own the game forever, and it will be available to download even after the deadline. And when you are ready to download it, you will need both origin launcher and Epic Games launcher, and both signed in to download the game.
How do you fix the Ping issues/ Connectivity issues in places like India?
If you live in anywhere in the middle ease, as I mentioned in the previous article that there are no servers here. But this game is actually playable on 200 ping, and it works absolutely fine on the German Server. Sure Japan and UK have had lesser ping but is not working for me, bringing an error code. So stick to German server if you are facing the same issue.
Can I upgrade my previously owned game to Celebration Edition?
Well if you already own the game now through this Epic offer you want to upgrade the game to Celebrations Edition, then it Simply will be upgraded to the Celebration Edition. Cool right?
Should I play this game if have not watched Star Wars movies?
First of all, go and claim this game, it doesn’t matter if you’ve watched the movies or not. Basically, I would encourage you to watch the movies before you play this game. Because how will you able to understand all these references for Star Wars? Not just this game but everywhere like the Show Friends, Big bang theory and many more places. And the second thing is the whole story is really great. The whole franchise is awesome and worth watching!
