Take Part in the next Weekend Pass

This weekend, BioWare and LucasArts will be holding another Weekend Pass Free Trial, allowing people who are curious about Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ the opportunity to begin their own personal Star Wars™ saga free* of charge! This Weekend Pass Free Trial will begin on Thursday, April 19th at 12:01AM CDT / 5:01AM GDT and run until Monday, April 23rd at 2:00AM CDT / 7:00AM GDT.

Players who want to take part in the Weekend Pass Free Trial weekend will be able to download the game as soon as the Weekend Pass begins, and new players will be able to register to play until 2:00AM CDT on Sunday, April 22nd.

Plus, if you purchase the game and activate your account on or before April 22nd at 12:00PM CDT, 5:00PM GMT you will receive the in-game Legacy reward: the Legacy Tauntaun Ram Pet**, sure to be your new best friend!

As with our previous Weekend Pass Free Trials:

  • There is no payment or credit card required.
  • You can play for up to four full days free of charge.
  • Your trial characters will be saved to your account, so you can continue on your Star Wars™ journey upon purchase of the game and redemption of the Game Product Registration Code at the Code Redemption Center.
  • You will be able to experience the first fifteen (15) levels of the game, exploring the Origin Worlds of each character class, and potentially visiting your faction’s Capital World.
  • You will also be able to take part in Player-vs-Player Warzones, or join up with friends to battle through one of the many Flashpoints in the game.

Just like our previous Weekend Passes, this Weekend Pass Free Trial is only available to individuals who haven’t taken part in any other free trial. To learn more, be sure to visit www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com/weekendpass, as well as our Weekend Pass Free Trial FAQ for more information.
