Bioware’s newest MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, will be opening up a free weekend trial this week, from Thursday (15 March) till Monday (19 March), according to a news post on the official SWTOR website. Players who do not own a previously active SWTOR account are eligible for the weekend pass.
Trial players will be able to experience a limited portion of SWTOR’s opening-game. The starting quests for all eight classes are playable, with their respective Origin Worlds and Faction Worlds available for exploration.
A limited form of PVP and Flashpoints (i.e. SWTOR’s version of instanced raids), are also available for those who prefer to play in groups.
