BioWare has officially announced free trial and referral programs for Star Wars: The Old Republic. The new programs are likely focused on bringing new players to game, and enticing others to return.
The free trial caps players at level 15, but includes access to all eight classes and has no time limit. For anyone that hasn’t played the game yet, that adds up to a sizable amount of content, since each class has a unique storyline for the first ten levels. Other perks include the ability to play in PvP and Flashpoints with friends.
The company also announced that players who refer a friend to the trial program will receive an exclusive mount. However, your friend will need to sign up via a form on the SWTOR website, purchase the full version of the game, and set up a recurring monthly subscription or redeem a Game Time Code before any rewards are given.
Are the new programs enough for you to try SWTOR?
