If you've been curious about Star Wars: The Old Republic but haven't felt like spending money to find out if you like it, today's a good day for you.
Beginning today, SW:TOR has a free trial available to new players. The trial lets players create characters in any class and play them normally through level 15. That will take most players through their starter planet and off to the next planet in their stories, essentially completing the prologue and introduction of their characters' tales. Characters created through the free trial are also eligible to participate in PvP zones.
Star Wars: The Old Republic is a story-driven MMORPG. The current level cap is 50 but, as is common, levels 1-15 move much more quickly than levels 30-50 do. Players who have previously participated in a free weekend or have played with a buddy code are eligible for the free trial. Players who have cancelled or lapsed existing subscriptions are not.
Love it once you've gotten your feet wet? You can keep the characters you made for the free trial after purchasing the full game. Hate it? Nothing lost.
