How To Play Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order For Just $15 On PC
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order comes out today, with pre-loading for the action adventure game already live on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, through Origin, Steam, and the Epic Store. Many an ardent Star Wars fan will have already pre-ordered the Respawn title, and not simply because playing as a Jedi Padawan is a an easy sell, as it also features an original story that is canon to the franchise.
If you, on the other hand, have been on the fence, whether it’s because you’re still not convinced you’ll like the game, or you’ve been saving for another one, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a way you can play the PC variant of the game on launch day for a fraction of the full price.
So what do you need? You will have to download the Origin client for Windows, if you don’t have it already, and sign up for one month of Origin Access Premier. The subscription will cost you $14.99 and will afford you free access to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, that too the Deluxe Edition, which is valued at $70 and comes with all pre-order bonuses as well as additional cosmetics and behind-the-scenes footage.
You can sign up for an Premier membership from the client’s Origin Access section. Once that is done, simply head to the Store, navigate to the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order page, and click Add to Library.
You can now begin downloading the game to your PC by heading to My Game Library.
There is a catch, though, and a big one at that – you will only be able to play the game while your subscription is live. This means that to justify forgoing ownership of the game, you will have to finish the game within a month, or two. That said, if you manage to have your fill of the cheaper side of the Force in one month, you’ll be saving yourself $55.
In addition, the subscription offers free access to a host of other titles, including the new Need for Speed: Heat and Battlefield V, and takes 10% off all Origin store purchases, including microtransactions. If all this sounds too good to pass up, you may want to consider plumping up for the $100 yearly subscription to Origin Access, which will save you an additional $6 on the monthly price.
