SWTOR free weekend coming up

BioWare are having an open house for the world’s favorite (and now only) Star Wars MMORPG, The Old Republic. It’ll be running from Thursday, May 17th at 5:01AM GMT until Monday, May 21st 7:00AM GMT.

As with everything that sounds to good to be true there will be numerous restrictions, namely that you can only take part if you haven’t played the game previously and you’ll only be hitting the heady heights of lvl 15. No credit card details are needed and any character you make can be picked up again if you do want to subscribe.

If you’ve been standing around on the sidelines not sure whether or not to take a peek this seems like a pretty good excuse.
