We've seen a lot of subscription MMOs transition to a free to play model over the past year or so, but it doesn't look like that's a fate destined for Star Wars: The Old Republic any time soon. EA and BioWare are however looking to get more new faces through the door, so following the success of last week's "Weekend Free Pass Trial" initiative, they're having another one.

It's more of a demo than the kind of free weekends we usually see with the likes of Steam Games, but in the absence of any other manner of demo for SWTOR at this time, it's the closest you can get to try before you buy. The official site has the details:
Like with the first Weekend Pass Free Trial, players will be able to experience the opening chapter of each of the eight character classes in the game. You will have the opportunity to explore each class’s Origin World, and may even have the chance to visit their faction’s Capital World. In addition, Weekend Pass Free Trial players will have the chance to face off against other players in PvP Warzones, or join with their friends to play through an early faction-specific Flashpoint.

The Weekend Pass Free Trial opens Thursday, March 22nd at 12:01AM CDT / 5:01AM GMT and ends on Monday, March 26th at 2:00AM CDT / 7:00AM GMT. To learn more, visit www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com/weekendpass and come back on March 22th to create your account, download the game, and begin your free trial! Some in-game restrictions apply. Visit the Weekend Pass Free Trial FAQ for more details.
For Australians, those times translate to 4:01PM, Thursday, March 22nd 2012 Sydney time (AEDT) to 6:00PM, Monday, March 26th 2012 AEDT.
