Do you have a Sith Warrior, Bounty Hunter or Jedi Knight that you’ve left unplayed in a galaxy far far away? Twitch.TV and Electronic Arts are giving lapsed SWTOR players who also happen to be Twitch Prime members a great reason to jump back into the game – a free AC-PT mount, a free level 65 character boost and access to the entire episode release of Knights of the Eternal Throne (the latestt expansion released just four months ago).
If you are new to the world of The Old Republic and find the whole multiple expansion thing confusing, here is a rundown of all of the content currently available to players:
- Base class story (Level 1 – 50) also known as the “vanilla” version of SWTOR with different class stories for each playable profession.
- Rise of the Hutt Cartel (Level 50 – 55)
- Shadow of Revan (Level 55 – 60)
- Knight of the Fallen Empire (Level 61 – 65)
- Knights of the Eternal Throne (Level 66 – 70)
Expansions are no longer purchased individually, it used to be that expansions like Rise of the Hutt Cartel would be purchasable for $9.99 USD. Now Bioware provides all players with all the current expansions and any release of any current on-going expansions until their subscription lapses. For new players, this means that you can essentially unlock enough content to keep you busy for months by purchasing a single month’s subscription. There are also different levels of accounts – Subscriber, Preferred (former subscriber) and Free to Play. For more information on how these account levels differ I highly recommend checking out this page!
Once you’ve got a redemption code for the Knights of the Eternal Throne Ultimate pack here are the instructions to use it:
Use the Twitch Prime code to activate your Star Wars: The Old Republic – Knights of the Eternal Throne Ultimate Pack
1: Create your account at: www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com/Play-Free
2: Redeem Your Code at: www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com/redeem-code
3: Get started on your Knights of the Eternal Throne story adventure by logging into the game and choose ‘CREATE CHARACTER’ and select ‘KNIGHTS OF THE ETERNAL THRONE.’ This will create your Level 65 Outlander with the Outlander Character Token included in the pack and lets you jump immediately into the action in Chapter One: Wrath and Ruin!
4: Claim the AC-PT Walker Mount from your in-game mail
I’m looking forward to going back to The Old Republic eventually. Although I’ve claimed my code for Knights of the Eternal Throne but it is going to b e a long while before I get to its’ episodic content. I still haven’t finished the main Sith Warrior story quest and then have three more expansions to go through before getting to Eternal Throne. Still – a free expansion is a free expansion, I’ll definitely take it.
Oh, and it should be noted that unlike when you subscribe to The Old Republic the one-time Twitch code will not give you access to all previously released expansion if you are a new player. You’ll have to subscribe for one month to gain the mission expansions between the base game and External Throne.
