Star Wars: The Old Republic can now be played for free

Update 1.5: HK-51 Activated goes live

Recommended Videos

Today is the day that Star Wars: The Old Republic added its free-to-play option. While the game’s eight classes are playable up to level 50, there are a number of restrictions that non-paying players have to put up with which will slow down their progress or simply lock out features. Not exactly ideal from our perspective, but it’s understandable.

Additionally, Game Update 1.5 went out today, adding everyone’s favorite HK-51 as a potential ally and Section X of the prison world Belsavis. Have any of you new players gotten the chance to try out The Old Republic? Still worth checking out, from that perspective?
