Like many big named games the Star Wars MMO have gone free to play up to level 15.
Those who participate in the free trial will have the opportunity to create a character and experience all eight character classes' opening adventures. They will also have the ability to battle other players in 'player-vs-player warzones' or join friends and play through a 'flashpoint.'
If you have participated in previous free trials of Star Wars: The Old Republic, such as a weekend pass free trial, or played with a buddy code, you are still eligible to sign up for this free trial. Unfortunately, if you have had an active game account in the past, you are unable to sign up for the free trial.
Today EA announced that the global launch date of the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Free-to-Play option will be November 15, 2012. This release will be simultaneous across all of the territories and countries where The Old Republic™ is available. The new Free-to-Play option allows gamers to experience all of the class storylines through to Level 50, the current level cap, at no charge and introduces the new Cartel Market!
Any paying subscribers at the launch of the Free-to-Play option on November 15th will be granted all of the Complimentary Cartel Coins currently listed on the Cartel Coin Ledger page, plus a one-time grant of 250 Complimentary Cartel Coins!
Additionally, the Rewards Program has been extended! All former subscribers who reactivate their subscription by the new date of December 20, 2012 at 11:59am CDT will be granted Complimentary Cartel Coins for their prior paid months up to November 15, 2012.
