SWTOR To Be Free This Weekend With The Weekend Pass Free Trial

Star Wars: The Old Republic PvP Guide -- The Gear, Medals, And Warzones Of SWTOR

If you've been meaning to check out Star Wars: The Old Republic, now is your chance. BioWare has announced the first Weekend Pass Free Trial for SWTOR. The trial begins this Thursday and will last until Sunday. Each of the eight character classes will be playable up until at least their Capitol World. PVP will also be playable.  

The trial only applies to people who don't already have a previously-active account.

There are a few restrictions. You can't progress past level 15 and you can't earn Legacy XP. (Not that you can play far enough to unlock your Legacy.) Only your Origin World, Capitol Word and the Fleet will be accessible. You won't have access to group chat, PVP chat, and the Galactic Trade Network either.

If you take SWTOR out for a test drive and like what you see, you will be able to purchase a subscription linked to that account. That doesn't mean you can wait forever though. BioWare can delete the free trial accounts, so if you dig it, act fast!

I know this sounds restrictive but for a weekend, you'll have plenty of things to do. Now that I'm done with Mass Effect 3, I'm going to be playing SWTOR again. I have a level 45 Sith Sorcerer that needs me. Let me know if you plan on testing out the free weekend. See you on The Harbinger! (For the Empire!)
