If you've still got some levelling to do in The Old Republic, this would be the weekend to jump back in. Starting in a few hours, the game will award twice the experience for completing missions, killing things, and... well, generally doing stuff . And, by progressing at twice the speed, you'll get a quicker route to the game's best bits. It'll be like watching the entire film saga, but then skipping Episodes One to Three. I think that's what you're meant to do in the first place.
The SW:TOR site has posted up the time details for the event:
- STARTS: Friday, March 14, 2014, 11AM PDT / 6PM GMT
- ENDS: Monday, March 17, 2014, 12AM PDT / 7AM GMT
If you've no other plans this weekend, the lure of extra rewards for your space fights and laser battles could be a tempting way to start/continue on with the free-to-play MMO.
If you're an old vet and, more importantly, a subscriber to the game, you'll also get a Lucky-77 Swoop speeder as of March 17th. Details of that promotion can be found here .
The game now contains the free Galactic Starfighter update . The PvP space combat expansion was made available to all players last month.
