Two not-very-new newses.

Firstly, for the second weekend running, Prospective players can register a new account and play the first chapter of the game for free. That includes:

  • The preludes for all 8 classes.
  • The capitals for each faction (Coruscant and Dromund Kaas).
  • The faction-specific flashpoints (Esseles for Republic, and Black Talon for Empire).
  • PvP warzones.
