Bioware and EA have announced that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be having a number of “Free Weekends” in the future, with the first being from ““Thursday, March 15 at 12:01AM CT through Monday, March 19 at 2:00AM CT.”
As far as I can make out this means that from TOMORROW (which is Friday, Bioware, just saying) at 6:00am until Monday at 8:00am people will be able to try out SWTOR for free.
There are obviously restrictions, for example on the chat to make sure you don’t become a gold seller or farmer and a level cap of 15, but if you haven’t played the game yet and are interested in buying it, this might well be an ideal opportunity for you to try it out.
You can head along to the official website and sign up for this weekend here. I’m not entirely sure whether this will be repeated but I wouldn’t be surprised if it is, it is a fairly clever marketing ploy if nothing else.
So yeah why don’t you give it a shot! If you need further convincing you ought to check out our review/impressions from the open beat before the release.
