Players that managed to grind their way to level 50 in Star Wars: The Old Republic as of last night (5:00 PM GMT), got a nice gift from EA: 30 days of free game time. BioWare is also offering former SWTOR subscribers seven days of free game time to come back and check out the latest update that was released yesterday. If players reactivate their old accounts before April 21, BioWare will also give them a Legacy Tauntaun Ram Pet - the same pet it gave to all current subscribers of SWTOR yesterday.
Here is what they say about the new update:
"Game Update 1.2: Legacy is finally here, bringing a wide range of new game features and playable content to Star Wars™: The Old Republic™! With Legacy, you can now create your very own Legacy family tree, sharing the skills mastered by one character with everyone in your family tree. You will also be able to experience new adventures, including the new Operation, Explosive Conflict, the Novare Coast PvP Warzone, and much, much more!
We appreciate the support of our community throughout the development of the Legacy game update. As a ‘Thank You’ gift, we are giving all active subscribers (as of April 12, 12:00PM CDT, 5:00PM GMT or April 21, 12:00PM CDT, 5:00PM GMT) the in-game Legacy reward: the Legacy Tauntaun Ram Pet*, sure to be your new best friend!"
