Deluxe Bundle

Looking to jump into Star Wars Battlefront on PlayStation 4? During D23 Expo, we revealed both our Limited Edition and Standard Edition Star Wars Battlefront PlayStation 4 bundles. This is a most impressive offering I am sure all Star Wars gaming fans will love. Pre-orders will be available for each of the bundles soon, and you can get the full details on what is included HERE.

Besides the PS4 bundle, we have a lot of cool things incoming, including more reveals and details you, the community, have been asking for. But up next, we will be on the show floor of PAX Prime in Seattle, WA, on August 28th – 31st in the Sony booth where you can go hands on with our Survival Mission on Tatooine and chat with me. Not able to attend PAX Prime? We will also be showing our Survival Mission at the GameStop Expo in Las Vegas, NV on September 2nd, and at the Fan Expo in Toronto, Canada on September 3rd - 6th.
