The Star Wars: The Old Republic Weekend Pass Free Trial will begin at 5am on Thursday, March 15 and run until 7am on Monday, March 19, EA and BioWare have announced. The free trial gives players a chance to check out a portion of what the game has to offer.

Take part in the Weekend Pass to experience the opening adventures of each of the eight character classes in the game, exploring both their Origin World and their faction's Capital World. Players will have the chance to face off against other players in PvP Warzones, or join up with friends and play through a couple of early faction-specific Flashpoints: The Esseles and The Black Talon.

A Weekend Pass Free Trial character cannot exceed level 15.

Visit StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com on March 15 to create your account, download the game, and begin your free trial.

The Old Republic Weekend Pass Free Trial is not open to individuals who already have a previously-active Star Wars: The Old Republic account.
