SWTOR lets former subscribers play first chapter of Knights of the Fallen Empire for free

As many of you know, to get in on Star Wars: The Old Republic’s recent expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire, you at least have to subscribe for a month to unlock the first batch of chapters. However, there is another Skywalk… um, way to check it out: BioWare is now offering former subscribers a sneak peek into the expansion with a limited-time trial.

From now through January 4th, 2016, former SWTOR subscribers can log in and play the first chapter of the expansion (The Hunt) for free. This offer does require players to opt in to BioWare’s emails, but on the up side, it also includes the ability to create a level 60 character to keep.

So i logged in,did the 1 hour story (mostly watching the video) and now what?.You can’ do nothing with this char,can’t level him,there is no gear to gear him up,maybe some stuff from auctions-but that all need hutt cartel expansion-so don’t bother to download if you won’t spend some cash-just watch the story on youtube.
P.s And no you can’t do the previous story content

Give us Australians 45 ping again like you use to and I’d more than consider coming back.

Rozyn I’m the opposite: I can’t stop playing this game. I like pretty much everything about it. I’m currently leveling my 5th character to the level cap and enjoying the experience every step of the way.

Ironwu Yeah wouldn’t want to get level appropriate rewards in a lower level zone or have fun playing with my friends no matter their level. That would be TERRIBLE in a social driven game like an MMO. It’s even worse when an MMO tries to make all it’s content relevant. It’s so much better when 90% of the game is obsolete to the majority of it’s players.

The worst thing is the way it increases the options for the player on what zones they can level in. Man, I REALLY hate when MMOs take a player off of a very linear zone progression and give them options and choice.

I’m right there with you brother. Losing all of that is totally a good trade off to to feed the ego driven desire to one shot everything in lower levels so I can feel like a god, even though in a level scaling game you’re still more powerful than an actual lower level anyway.

But man, it’s all about the one shotting!

paragonlostinspace Neo_Wolf I have played through the stroylines with a partner or two.  I assume your referring to how you cannot influence someone else’s story choices?  I don’t really see that as a bad thing though as for their tagline of “choices matter” to apply they have to apply those story choices individually rather than allow your story to be taken in an entirely different direction based on some RNG favouring someone else’s choice.  there is however nothing to stop you playng through those stories multiple time and experiencing the results based on the story owners choice though.

i can see how that may be an issue for some people but it isn’t like it was an oversight, or a flaw..as so much as an intentional design choice out of the gate.  It isn’t a new development.

Plus there is plenty of world and exploration stories you can go through with a group where that issue doesn’t apply.

LordOfBread Rozyn Uh yes, the random posses of enemies just chillin’ in the countryside. The bane of many MMOs. Shoot their friends 5 feet away, it’s okay though, it’s outside of their aggro range! SWTOR was even worse about that than other games. Makes it feel incredibly clunky and fake.
