If you're not doing anything on Easter weekend, or simply need to take a break from the in-laws who made a surprise visit, you can immerse yourself into Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR from here on out) absolutely free of charge until Monday, April 9 at 2:00AM CDT (7:00AM GMT).
It's a 'Weekend Pass Free Trial' being offered by Electronic Arts and Bioware, and it's actually been going on since Thursday. Our apologies for tje semi-late heads up, but hey, that still gives you all of today and tomorrow to check out the MMO in depth.
There's no payment or credit card required to join the free trial, and if you end up getting hooked, you can purchase the game afterwards and continuing questing Star Wars style with your trial character. It's $60 MSRP for the game (around $45 street) or $150 for the Collector's Edition. Monthly subscriptions run anywhere from $13 to $15, depending on far in advance you prepay.
