If you’re yet to see what all the fuss is about regarding last years biggest MMO, then now if your chance to find out. Star Wars: The Old Republic is having another free to play event this coming weekend and it all kicks off on Thursday morning. You’ll be able to live out your Jedi and Sith fantasies right through until the early hours of Monday, not bad eh?
The latest reports indicated that Bioware’s MMO has lost around 25% of it’s subscriber base over the last few months and this is hardly a surprise, as many MMO’s see a spike upon release only to see numbers tail off after a few months. This fall shouldn’t be seen as a mass criticism of the game however, as both critics and Star Wars fans alike hold this title in the highest of regards.
You can find more details regarding this weekends event here. Let’s hope EA and Bioware are considering offering a permanent free trial in the near future as we believe it maybe more of an incentive for gamers to try out one of the biggest names in the online genre.
