One way Google likes to reward Chromebook users is with some exclusive perks, usually in the form of free apps or discounts. Recently, it added three months of Disney+ for new users, and now it has two new apps for current and new users that is sure to delight gaming fans.
First up is Star Wars: KOTOR, a game that was first released on PC in 2003 and has a score of 93 on Metacritic. The game is set "four thousand years before the Galactic Empire and hundreds of Jedi Knights have fallen in battle against the ruthless Sith" with you as the final hope for the Jedi Order.
You'll travel through eight different worlds, including locations such as Tatooine and Kashyyyk while learning the ways of the Force and how to master 40 different powers. Knights of the Old Republic is a $9.99 value, but can be had completely free for new and current Chromebook users by visiting the Chromebook perks page.
Next up is Asphalt 9, a game that is already free on the Play Store, but with a Chromebook you'll snag an in-app item pack worth $49.99. To claim this racing game along with its in-game items, you'll need to head over to the same Chromebook perks page and click on the link. It will then verify you are using an eligible Chromebook and open the Play Store to begin installing the app.
Along with the three-month trial of Disney+, these are some of the biggest perks we've seen for owning a Chromebook in a while. It lines up perfectly with all the great holiday deals for Chromebooks we've seen lately, and ensures all of you getting a Chromebook for Christmas will have plenty to be jolly about this holiday season.
