What does a single-player Star Wars game have to do with an MMORPG like Star Wars: The Old Republic? Free pets, that’s what! In honor of the launch of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, players of SWTOR can get their own free BD-1-inspired mini-pet.[AL:SWTOR]
There’s no purchase of the single-player game necessary and no other strings attached here. Simply log in to SWTOR between Thursday, November 14th and Tuesday, December 10th to get your free RE-1. Observant players will note that RE-1 is different from BD-1 owing to the fact that Fallen Order takes place years ahead of SWTOR’s timeline, so the folks at BioWare took one of the early concept sketches of BD-1 to use when designing this new pet.
That’s all there is to it in order to have a new robo-friend join you for adventure. Scratch it under its chin! Call it a good little beeper! Feel the sting of betrayal as it passively watches you die from leaping into a fight underprepared! Fun times!
