$47.99 - Pre-order for XB1, PS4 or PC
https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-...071Y1RXHG/

Here's a breakdown of the pre-order bonuses:

For me, I don't care that much about the extras. I just want the discount and something I can trade in for $10-15 in 4-8 months (particularly once it hits EA Access).


My ETA is Nov 21. Or you can buy it with an EA Access membership for $53.99

EA business practices are super scummy. I'm boycotting this game.

Anyone pre ordering this game is contributing to the loot box fiasco in gaming which is killing AAA games

About 9 months after the first Battlefront was released the price dropped to 4.99. Original price was same as BF2, $80. I can wait a bit... LOL

Curious to hear comments in why EA is ruining the Star Wars franchise?

I haven't seen this as standard as it used to be. They changed the policy slightly.

No one should buy this game until EA cleans up their act. Don't give in to this.

Same. I paid $5 for the first one. Played for about 2 hours, then uninstalled.

We're getting to the point where everybody and their mother creating games is trying to get on the MTX bandwagon. I'm okay with this on "Free" games. But these days, most multi-player games are $120 -- $60 for the base game, then another $60 for all of the DLC that essentially is required for competitive online play. Of course, unlike the base game, the $60 DLC rarely, if ever drops in price, even years after the game is released and replaced by another installment.

So now you have a $120 game that you want players to spend $1.99 here and $2.99 there to continue playing? Screw that.

Today is the 1st day you have been able to pre-order the actual physical game and get a prime discount. Before that it was digital only and no discount. I guess EA was trying to suck as much $$$ as they could before allowing anyone to discount the game. That being said I expect this game to be even cheaper with black friday a week away.

Please do not support this game if you don't want the future of all games to be Pay to Play with Microtransactions. Want to play as Luke? You have to grind for 40 hours to earn enough credits to unlock him.
