BioWare Announces Free Trial Weekend Pass For Star Wars: The Old Republic

If you saw last week’s announcement about the Friends Of The Old Republic trial program, and wanted to check it out but you didn’t have any Friends in The Old Republic already, BioWare has a new deal for you today! And it’s limited (so far) to this weekend only:

Today we are excited to announce the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Weekend Pass Free* Trial. Now for a limited time, you will be able to live out your very own Star Wars™ saga with thousands of other players for free! With the Star Wars: The Old Republic Weekend Pass Free Trial, individuals who don’t already have a previously-activeStar Wars: The Old Republic account will be allowed to see a portion of what the game has to offer, free of charge, with no payment method required, for up to four days!

Individuals who take part in the Weekend Pass will be able to experience the opening adventures of each of the eight character classes in the game, exploring both their Origin World and their faction’s Capital World. Additionally, Weekend Pass players will have the chance to face off against other players in PvP Warzones, or join up with friends and play through a couple of early faction-specific Flashpoints in the game, The Esseles and The Black Talon.

The Weekend Pass Free Trial opens Thursday, March 15th, 12:01AM CT / 5:01AM GMT and ends on Monday, March 19th at 2:00AM CT / 7:00AM GMT. To learn more, and come back on March 15th to create your account, download the game, and begin your free trial! Have questions? Visit the Weekend Pass FAQ.

If you’ve been wanting to try TOR, now is the time… no friends needed!

  1. All down hill from here BW

    Too many bugs, poor customer service,and too much voice acting. If they make the game more like SWG then I can hop on board and give it a try again. I just want more choices that go beyond answering a question. Not into PvP so flash points, PvP, and space battles are no interest to me. For a PvE player, I feel like there is nothing to do after I finish the class quest line.

  3. Dizzylemon says:

    When I wrote too much voice acting, I should have included that it would have been more meaningful if the voice acting was done for the class quest line only. Then I would have stopped skipping through all of it.

  4. BioWare I don’t like what you did. You did not put star wars the old republic on the ps3 system.And that is not right.
