I’ve been eager to play Star Wars: The Old Republic since it came out last Christmas. Despite this, I’ve been reluctant to buy it due to the price of the game and it‘s subscription fees. Thanks to a recent change by Bioware, however, I’ll be able to get a taste of Star Wars: The Old Republic for free. Bioware is offering a free trial of the game for those who have not played it already.
Although there is no time limit to the trial, it does come with some restrictions. For one, players can only raise their characters’ level to 15. They can only play in their characters’ origin world, capital world, all Warzones, the Fleet, and their first flashpoint as well. In addition, players cannot trade with other players, send or reply to mail, or use certain chat functions in the game. Finally, a player’s character cannot raise their Crew Skills over level 40 and they cannot gain Legacy XP.
Despite these limitations, I am happy that Bioware is giving gamers a chance to try out The Old Republic for free. It gives us a chance to get a taste of the game and decide whether we want to buy the game or not. This is also a great way for Bioware to attract new players as well. Now if you will excuse me, I have a free trial I have to test out.
