Steam and GOG sales celebrate Star Wars Day early

Star Wars Day is quickly approaching, but Steam and GOG have decided to start the festivities a little early. Both online retailers have kicked off special sales in celebration of Star Wars Day, discounting much of their Star Wars game catalogs. There are some good deals to be found, provided you aren’t like me and don’t already buy all the Star Wars-related stuff you come across.

Anyway, there are quite a few games on offer here for the Star Wars fan on the look out for a deal. Steam has few different bundles on offer, with its X-Wing Bundle packing together the classic X-Wing and TIE Fighter games for $3.99 each. On the other hand, you could opt for the Jedi Knight Collection and its five games – the four Jedi Knight titles and the original Dark Forces – for a grand total of $4.99.

If your Steam library isn’t quite as packed as mine, though, you might want to have a look at the Star Wars Complete Collection. This includes most of Star Wars discounts on offer (24 games in all), save for a select few – LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the Star Wars-themed tables for Pinball FX 2 are notably missing. Still, for a discounted price of $44.04, this is still a pretty good deal for anyone who doesn’t already have the majority of these games.

Since GOG tends to skew toward more classic titles, its own Star Wars Day sale doesn’t offer quite as much as Steam’s. However, you can find some individual titles at slightly lower prices on GOG, which is good if you’re not interested in buying in bulk. For instance, you can save a cool 20 cents on each of the Knights of the Old Republic games, while picking up Dark Forces or Dark Forces II from GOG will save you a whole 12 cents each.

Okay, so the discrepancies in price are negligible at best, but hey, if you’re going to bargain hunt, you might as well go for the lowest price possible, right? Steam’s Star Wars Day sale runs until May 9, while GOG’s lasts a little longer, ending on May 12 at 10 AM UTC. Have a look at all the deals from GOG (store) and Steam (store), and as always: May the fourth be with you.
