Star Wars Squadrons and FIFA 21 get massive discounts in Black Friday gaming deals

Image Description

Black Friday gaming deals are arriving, but not all of the offers are on hardware. We're also seeing a number of great discounts on EA games, including Star Wars Squadrons, Apex Legends, FIFA 2021, and The Sims 4 – making it cheaper than ever to delve into these iconic titles.

The discounts are only on current-gen software, such as PC, PSVR, Oculus, Xbox One, and PS4 – no Xbox Series X or PS5 games being discounted just yet – but the savings are hefty, and will be welcome whether you're coming to a game for the first time or looking to save on a number of expansion packs.

Keep an eye out on our Black Friday gaming deals page, of course, for the hottest deals as and when they land. If you're mainly hankering after some EA games – or a dose of Star Wars – then look no further than below.

Star Wars: Squadrons

Star Wars: Squadrons was something of a surprise success – given the inconsistent quality of so many tie-in Star Wars games. Playing in optional VR, especially, is a breathtaking experience, even leading our computing editor to reassess his view of the entire medium: "After years of being a virtual reality sceptic, playing Star Wars: Squadron has almost single handily changed my mind."

Squadrons was previously retailing for a pretty reasonable $39.99, though this latest discount knocks 40% off the RRP, bringing it to just $24 on Steam, Xbox, PlayStation, Origin, and the Epic Game Store. These discounts kick off in earnest from November 20 for most online portals – November 25 for Steam and Epic Game Store – and run until November 30 / December 1, meaning you'll have a good week or so to benefit from the promotion.

  • Origin: $24 (40% Off) from Nov. 20 - Dec. 1
  • PlayStation: $24 (40% Off) from Nov. 20 - Nov. 30
  • Xbox: $24 (40% Off) from Nov. 20 - Dec. 3
  • Steam: $24 (40% Off) from Nov. 25 - Dec. 1
  • Epic Game Store:  $24 (40% Off) from Nov. 25 - Dec. 1

FIFA 21
