Prices on games and gear that won’t cost you an arm... we promise.

The 4th of May is upon us, which means that retailers everywhere are offering discounts on all of their Star Wars-inspired wares. Everything from rugs to pet toys is available for less than MSRP today. However, we’re focusing mainly on games and tech from the Star Wars galaxy. Many of these sales last only for today, so you’ll have to move fast to take advantage of these savings.

A galaxy of games

You can find nearly every game from the Star Wars library available for a discount today, whether you play on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, or Switch. You can even find classics like Star Wars Episode 1 Racer and Star Wars Republic Commando, but here are a few contemporary titles that we think deserve special attention.


Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the definitive Lego experience from a galaxy far, far, away.

Fallen Order

This third-person action game was developed by Respawn Entertainment, the same studio responsible for the Titanfall franchise and Apex Legends. Fallen Order draws inspiration from games like Dark Souls and Metroid to create something stunning and unique.


With the exception of the most recent Lego Star Wars title, The Skywalker Saga, you won’t find a more comprehensive collection of playable characters outside of Star Wars Battlefront II. Inspired by the class-based combat of the Battlefield franchise, Battlefront II is playable online or offline against bots. There’s even a co-op PvE mode that allows you to team up with your friends against waves of ravenous Ewoks. Honestly, if wrecking Ewoks online is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.

Star Wars: Squadrons

EA revitalized the Star Wars dogfighting experience with Star Wars: Squadrons, a tense, difficult, and immersive aerial combat game. Drawing from the classics like X-Wing and Tie Fighter, this game makes a compelling case for owning a VR headset. If you don’t audibly scream the first time you make a high-speed pass across the bridge of a Star Destroyer, you may want to check your pulse.

Mobile Accessories

Both OtterBox and Casetify have made some exclusive Star Wars-themed cases and other mobile accessories available starting today. Whether you need a phone case inspired by the Star Wars Marvel comics or a Death Star charging pad, these mobile accessories are perfect for any Star Wars fan.


Currently, you can save 15 percent on any Star Wars-themed phone case at OtterBox. A variety of designs are available ranging from the classic films to the Mandalorian embossed on either matte or clear Symmetry cases from OtterBox.


Casetify has a wide variety of Star Wars cases and other accessories available. In addition to phone cases, you can also find leather Apple Watch bands, wireless charging pads, and tablet cases all sporting themes from the original films.
