It’s a new month, and that means a new chapter in Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Knights of the Fallen Empire storyline. Chapter 13: Profit and Plunder goes live today, and if you’re looking to see what all the excitement is about, you can also check into the game for free and try the first chapter of the KotFE storyline with a level 60 character.

In Profit and Plunder, the Outcast will seek to rob the Eternal Empire blind — to give back to the poor, we’re sure — with the help of con artist Gault Rennow and the Twi’lek rogue Vette. The new chapter also adds a gauntlet-style series of battles against fighters of increasing difficulty, the Eternal Championship, along with an Alliance mission where you’ll fight alongside the Wookiee Bowdaar to put an end to the brutal gladiatorial games.

If you haven’t tried Knights of the Fallen Empire, you can hop in with a free trial until May 30, which grants you a level 60 character and access to the first chapter of the KotFE story, The Hunt. Continuing in the story will, naturally, require a subscription.

    Come on guys, don’t be so petite. SWTOR is f2p up to certain point. LotRO also has locked content and no one cries about it, when it’s mentioned on mmobomb

        Then you are a pathetic excuse for a gamer if only graphics can entertain you. If only appearance catches your eyes in games, it is probably the same with everything in your life. I feel sorry for you, because of the so many thing you won’t experience due to the limitations you put on yourself.

    why you guys post about free to try games? let me explain – F2P game is when there is everything non cosmetic FOR FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! will you understand???

    • Marlblanke on May 5, 2016

      Not really…
      F2P means…Free to Play. Which the game is.

      You can access all content without spending a cent.
      Yeah, you have limitations, but you can also get rid of (most of) those with in-game money.

      Not necessarily only cosmetic, some other items and services are possible to do without harm but generally correct.
      Swtor is F2T – Free to try, always been and is unlikely to change at this point.

      Then there will not be a single game to report, all websites like this one will have to shut down. You seriously need a reality check.

  4. A free trial qualifies for a mmobomb article? how is this free to play?
