The video game Star Wars Battlefront II, which caused quite a stir at the time of its release, is now available for free from the Epic Games Store at Epic Games.
The game was released in 2017, meaning it is the newer of two games of the same name.
Emphasizing multiplayer, the game looks spectacular and takes centerpieces of rebel and empire clashes in familiar places from the movies.
The player's job is to fight and help his side to achieve victory.
There is a camera outside of both the first person and the game character.
It is also one of the most controversial titles in game history.
Star Wars Battlefront II caused a huge rage among players about their micropayments, i.e. their in-game purchases.
The funding was tuned so extremely that it was very difficult to play it successfully at no extra charge.
Changes and fixes have since been made to the mechanics, but the reputation of the game has already gone through.

The game’s initial sales fell short of targets, which Publisher Electronic Arts (EA) largely blamed on the uproar over micropayments.
The version now available is the Celebration Edition, which includes all the additional cosmetic content that had appeared on the game by December 20, 2019.
The game is available for Windows and is allowed for ages 16 and older.
If you redeem the game by Thursday, January 21st at 6pm, you will be able to keep it for at least as long as the Epic store exists.
You will need a free account in the Epic store and, in the case of this game, also in EA's Origin service.
For both, you also need to install a client program on your computer.
Since the game is graphically Korean, there is a need to find some refreshment in the computer.
However, the game, which hardly needed any of the latest game horrors, was already over three years old.
It is possible that multiplayer is sometimes interrupted by a lack of players.
