With the new patch coming in tonight, Bioware and EA have launched their latest way for new players to trial and enjoy Star Wars: The Old Republic, the invite a friend program. Players who are already a subscribing member of the title will be able to invite their friends and family to trial Star Wars : The Old Republic following tonights maintenance period.
The option to invite friends will be at the address linked here, and all players with an active account will be able to take advantage of this feature. However, this trial invite will only remain active for 14-days and any accepting player will only receive 7-consecutive days access. That means that if you play for 3 hours across a week, you will only have played 3 hours before your account expires and you’ll be required to buy the game to continue. However, as far as I can tell, only the opening areas for each faction will be opened to exploration. But from experience they are still amazing places to behold.
Be sure to check out the official website for more information.
