If you were paying attention to anything other than WoW Classic on Monday, you might recall that Star Wars: The Old Republic slipped in the fact that it was delaying its expansion from September to October. If you were paying extra good attention, you might have seen that BioWare’s going to give out a free unlock for the Nautolan race to its subscribers as (unspoken) compensation.what you’ll need to do to get that free unlock. For starters, you’ll need to be subscribed at some point between September 1st and October 22nd. Even if you end your sub early, you’ll meet the qualifications for the unlock. The race itself won’t be handed to you until the October 22nd launch of Onslaught.
If you’re going from free-to-play to subscription just for a month, be aware that you’ll get some cartel coins to spend on useful items and unlocks as well as full access to your bank escrow and all past expansions.
