In the Spirit of Easter, and are bringing the Force to you with : going free to play this weekend. If you’ve yet to play the game and are looking to give it a try, this weekend is your chance. However, if you’ve participated in the past with an SW:TOR free pass, you’re out of luck.

  • A Weekend Pass Free Trial character cannot exceed level 15.
  • A Weekend Pass Free Trial character will only be able to play on their Origin World, Capital World, the Fleet, all Warzones, and in their first Flashpoint.

About The Author
Ryan Smith
At the age of 3, Ryan received an NES from a relative and the rest is history. Sneaking up past his bed time to play Ninja Gaiden or Super Mario Bros was a common practice for him, and often caught too. Wasting his youth away on the SNES or Genesis, slamming controllers, and wishing death upon his video game foes. Many a nights Ryan stayed awake to defeat that final boss. There was nothing more rewarding. As the PlayStation and N64 came around, his love for video games increased until it inevitably became one of his passions. Now days, much of his free time is consumed by playing on Xbox Live with friends. Here on The Game Fanatics as the Reviews Editor, Ryan gets to share his passion of videos games with all of you! There's nothing more rewarding than that. /win
