BioWare is holding another free weekend event over the Easter break for MMORPG Star Wars: the Old Republic.

The free weekend is only available to those who haven’t already used a free trial in the past. You won’t need a credit card to sign up, and if you decided to take the plunge, your trial characters will be waiting for you.

The trial extends to the first fifteen levels, and players can visit all eight Origin Worlds and if really efficient, may reach the Capital World. PvP Warzones and Flashpoints will also be available.

The trial kicks off at 10:00PM PDT April 4, 1:00AM EDT, 6:00AM BST and 3:00PM AEST April 5. It runs through 12:01AM PDT, 3:00 AM EDT, 8:00AM BST and 5:00PM AEST April 9

You can sign up and grab the client as soon as the event begins, and can register up until the final day.
