Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is now a recreation which, broadly speaking, people today like. (If you in some way just dropped in from 2017, boy, we have bought a ton to communicate about.) It was recently provided absent for free on the Epic Game titles Store, a giveaway which proved so common that the servers very significantly went all Death-Star-at-the-stop-of-A-New-Hope, and now we know particularly how a lot of men and women grabbed it.

EA claims that above 19 million gamers picked up Battlefront 2 as component of the promotion. Yeah, people today like cost-free Computer system online games and all, but which is an definitely absurd number of players to be in for the advertising in just a solitary 7 days. (For a tough comparison, The Sims 4 has experienced close to 30 million gamers around its life time.) This is, at the very least, a fairly sound idea of how preferred factors other than Fortnite can get on Epic’s launcher.

Despite the new popularity, EA reaffirms that the match has already had its “final content material drop”. Previous year, alongside with that very last update, DICE stated it was moving on from Battlefront in order to emphasis on the subsequent Battlefield video game.

EA is continue to creating Star War game titles, but underneath the new Lucasfilm Video games initiative, Disney is expanding its licensing offer to permit Ubisoft to make a big, open-entire world Star Wars title.

Battlefront 2 is now out there for acquire on Epic (or Steam, or Origin), if you truly feel like you are missing out.
