Online game distributors Steam and GOG are currently running huge sales on Star Wars games. May the Fourth be with you.

Today is an interesting day. Nothing particularly interesting happened on this date in history, but it has recently become one of the most exciting days of the year for some groups of people. May the Fourth is an unofficial holiday celebrating the venerable Star Wars movies and the fictional universe they have created. Why May the Fourth? It sounds similar to the series’ oft-repeated catchphrase, “May the Force be with you.” That’s why you’ve seen sales from retailers like ThinkGeek, Amazon, and Best Buy. One of the best parts of this holiday, however, may be the game sales put on by GOG and Steam.

Both retailers are offering massive discounts on select Star Wars titles (up to 77% off in some cases). Each service has also bundled several games together in their own collection packs with a discount. Either way you cut it, this is a great chance to snag some amazing classic, such as Knights of the Old Republic or Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. Full lists of available titles and prices can be found over on Steam and GOG. All the titles on sale are available for Windows, but some are also available for Mac and Linux as well. Steam’s sale will run until Monday, May 8th. GOG’s is set to run through next week. Head over to GOG or Steam to start your adventure in a galaxy far, far away.

And may the Force be with you.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
